Hearing Aid Benefits

If you have hearing loss, hearing aids can help you stay connected to the sounds that matter most in your life and provide you with the following benefits:

  • Increased enjoyment of social activities
  • Enjoyment of music and television
  • Better communication with loved ones, friends and children
  • Improved confidence and feeling good about yourself
  • Understand conversations without guessing at what is being said


One or Two Hearing Aids?

Hearing with two ears is called “binaural” hearing. Our bodies are designed to hear sound from two balanced ears just as we see with two eyes. Hearing with just one hearing aid disrupts this balance. Hearing with two hearing aids will help provide:

  • Better understanding of speech and conversations in noisy situations
  • Better localization of the sound source
  • Reduction in the volume required
  • Less effort to listen
  • More natural balance of sound


Types of Hearing Aids

Our hearing professional will recommend a solution for you based upon your individual hearing loss, ear shape, lifestyle, listening environments and budget. Hearing aids are available in 5 styles designed for your specific needs.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

The BTE solutions fit behind your ear and are attached to a custom made ear mold. They can be fitted with a standard tubing and ear mold for maximum power or a very thin tube with a soft silicone dome or smaller custom made ear mold.

Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE)

Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE)

These combine the benefits of both the BTE and CIC instruments. They are virtually invisible as the speaker unit is hidden inside the ear canal.

In-The-Ear (ITE)

In-The-Ear (ITE)

These are custom made to fit within your entire ear.

In-The-Canal (ITC)

In-The-Canal (ITC)

These are small enough to fit almost entirely in your ear canal making them hardly noticeable.

Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC)

Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC)

These are the smallest available instruments and are virtually invisible.

Remotes and Wireless Accessories
Options for being connected are greater than ever. Many of today’s hearing aids are available with remote controls or Bluetooth streaming devices which allow your hearing aids to be connected to a number of wired and wireless audio sources including your telephone, MP3 players, television and other Bluetooth devices.
