There are devices that fit discreetly behind your ear ("BTE") as well as custom instruments that fit almost invisibly inside your ear/ear canal ("ITC" or "CIC"). The technology inside hearing aids has dramatically improved from an aesthetic and performance perspective in the last 5 years. These changes are proven to provide better hearing and understanding on the phone, in settings where background noise is present, and enjoying television at home.
The devices that are the right fit for you is a very personal and unique choice that you and the audiologist will make together. Your listening needs, your style preferences, and your budget are all taken into careful consideration so that you realize a positive return on your investment in better hearing.
