Styles of Hearing Aids
Like most electronic products, each category offers custom designs. All hearing devices are fitted to the individual; this is one of the most important points about having your device properly fitted and tuned.
We advise patients with hearing problems to begin their recovery process with professional hearing audiologists and not to purchase hearing aids from the internet. Correct fit and training are critical to successful hearing aid use.
Various hearing aid styles we offer:
- Invisible-in-canal devices– This type of hearing aid rests completely and invisibly inside the ear canal. It’s the smallest hearing device but is still very powerful and full-featured.
- In-the-canal hearing aids – These devices are small, compact and offer discreteness. They’re slightly larger than IIC instruments.
- In-the-ear instruments – These are worn in the outer bowl of the ear, with coverage of the canal as well.
- Behind-the-ear hearing aids– These styles vary in size and type but all have a tube connected from the battery outside the ear to the receiver/amplifier in the ear. Depending on your needs, the outside-the-ear portion could include an earmold.
Loss of hearing occurs for many reasons. Aging is one of the main reasons and injury can cause hearing loss. However, one of the best ways to prevent hearing problems is using hearing protection.
There are several specific hearing protection products and many generic ones. Earplugs, earmolds and earphones are used to stop damaging noise from entering the ear. Specific products for hunters and shooters, swimmers and divers, and musicians and music workers are examples of noise-reducing items used for specific purposes.

Hearing Aid Products and Accessories by Manufacturer
The hearing aid has progressed in the electronic age to become a remarkable instrument, tiny, yet powerful, and packed with features that make listening a far better experience than in decades past. Bluetooth technology allows hearing aids to connect with smartphones and be controlled by apps.
Let’s look at some reliable, top quality brands of hearing aids:
Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Developers of hearing aids are always looking for new and improved ways of making hearing aids better and more useful in people's lives. Bluetooth technology is being used to make it easier for hearing aid users to connect their hearing aids to various devices for improved sound quality directly from the sound source.
Cell phone accessories
Although the FCC now requires that hearing aid compatible (HAC) cell phones meet strict guidelines for quality, some hearing aid users wish to further improve their cell phone experience. Add-on devices and cell phone accessories can make cell phones even more compatible with hearing aids.
Many cell phones can be used with hearing aid telecoils. Hearing aid accessories that provide a hands-free option may also be helpful.
Electronic Shooter Protection (ESP)
Since 1994, ESP has served hunters and shooters by providing the original, custom-fit, in-the-ear hearing protection. ESP electronic hearing protectors and earplugs are custom-molded to your ears for a precise, comfortable fit.
The Oticon Opn hearing aid uses the latest technology to help users hear speech clearly. This behind-the-ear unit is a powerful Bluetooth-enabled device that allows listeners to distinguish two or more speakers in a crowd.
The Alta2 premium hearing aid is another powerful choice, offered in several styles from in-the-ear to behind-the-ear from Oticon. This style features binaural noise management and wireless synchronization.
Oticon’s latest hearing accessory is the ConnectClip™, a small wireless connection device that “transforms your hearing aids into a wireless stereo headset. Using and adjusting your devices with a cellphone is the latest technology to make better hearing easier every day.
One complaint from hearing aid users is the difficulty of replacing small batteries. A new product available from Phonak is a rechargeable hearing aid – the CROS B-R. CROS technology allows hearing and understanding from any direction. These devices automatically switch to a setting that matches your listening situation so that one or both ears can hear speech more clearly.
Also in the Phonak line: Virto™ B, Virto B Titanium and Bolero™ B. The first is biometrically calibrated to fit your ear structure better than was previously possible; the Virto B Titanium is ultra-light and very small, fitting in the ear canal; the Bolero B is a behind the ear unit designed to automatically mask noise and recognize speech.

One of the breakthrough features in hearing aid technology is rechargeable batteries. Signia hearing aids by Siemens offer the newest level of wireless charging. The Pure Charge&Go Nx hearing device is small and includes an inductive charger, tuning hearing aids off when charging and on when removed.
The Siemens Signia Silk is described as the “smallest and most natural sounding read-to-wear hearing aid.” It features a silicone sleeve that slips on the device and the hearing aid goes into the ear canal for nearly invisible use.
Signia also offers a full line of accessories that work with your hearing aid for radio, audio and television, as well as other devices.
SoundDNA is a feature of Sonic hearing aids that offers “adaptive, flexible and automatic” hearing performance. This technology platform is used with innovative hearing aids like the Enchant behind-the-ear device that is adaptive and features binaural noise control.
