When it comes to treating hearing loss, today there are more options than ever before to help you hear your best. In most cases, it is really your choice when it comes to features and personalization. Hearing aids can be customized by:

  • Type and Style
  • Settings
  • Apps
  • Accessories

There are many different types and styles of hearing ads that not only match your hearing health needs but also your own personal comfort. Completely-in-the-canal hearing aids, for example, are the most discreet style and are custom fit for insertion into your ear canal. In-the-ear hearing aids on the other hand fit into the bowl of the outside of your ear. Finally, receiver-in-the-ear and behind-the-ear are two hearing aid styles that you are probably familiar with. Each feature a small case that fits behind your ear with a tube that transfers sound into the ear. Your audiologist will help you narrow down your choices by first selecting the type and style of hearing aid that is right for your hearing loss. Your audiologist will then walk you through the features of each and answer your questions, so you can make an informed choice.

Settings and apps are another way you can personalize your hearing aids. Settings program your hearing aid device for your specific hearing health needs and also for the listening scenarios you frequently encounter. You audiologist will determine your settings and work with you to make changes as you become accustomed to wearing and hearing with your devices. In recent years, hearing aid apps have opened up even more access to adjust and personalize your hearing aids on-the-go. Talk to your audiologist about which app will help you best.

Finally, hearing aid accessories can enhance your hearing aid even more. Special accessories are available to help you with group conversations, telephone calls and television.

The bottom line is that today’s hearing aids offer you the options you need to hear your best. It really is your hearing, your choice.
