Choosing your hearing aid or device should be a rewarding experience and one where you are made to feel comfortable. That’s what we promise to do here at The Hearing Clinic. We’ll provide you with education and advice to answer any questions you may have about choosing the right hearing device for you.
Choosing a hearing aid
There isn’t a one size fits all approach to choosing and fitting hearing aids and hearing devices. Following your audiological assessment, we will work together with you on an individual basis to assess and fit a customised hearing aid that suits your hearing loss, lifestyle needs and budget.
With the state-of-the-art technology that is now available, for hearing aids and devices means that hearing aids are able to reduce noise and improve speech clarity better than before. You also have more choice than ever before to find a hearing solution that is perfect for you. From a small and discreet hearing aid that will hardly be seen to slightly bigger hearing aids that can make it easier to change the battery and have potentially stronger amplification of sound.
Types of Hearings Aids
A hearing aid is a small computerised amplifier. Despite a different range of shapes and sizes the core components of all hearing aids are designed to carry external sounds to your ear.
Let’s look at the most common types. Some aids can’t always be fitted to everyone as it depends on the size of the ear canal and the degree of hearing loss. And others are not recommended for those at risk of outer ear infection.
