                       Hearing Aid Styles

Completely In the Canal
"CIC" hearing aids are almost completely invisible. CIC hearing aids are custom-made to fit an individual's ears and are one of the smallest custom-fit hearing aids available. The entire hearing aid fits deep within the ear canal. CIC hearing aids use a size 10 battery that needs to be changed on average every 3-5 days. They are available in almost all levels of technology and are a good choice for someone who wants a small, discreet hearing aid.

SoundLens
hearing aids are also known as "Invisible In the Canal" or IIC hearing aids. They are custom-made to fit an individual's ears and are the smallest custom-made, invisible and removable hearing aids available. SoundLens hearing aids use a size 10 battery that needs to be changed on average every 3-5 days. These hearing aids are great for someone who wants a small, discreet hearing aid, has the manual dexterity to manage such a hearing aid, and has an ear canal large enough to fit this aid completely in the ear canal. This hearing aid is available in one level of technology.


In the Ear "ITE" hearing aids are a larger form of custom-made hearing aids. They are available in sizes ranging from In the Canal "ITC" all the way up to a true ITE hearing aid that fills the ear canal and the entire bowl of the external ear. These hearing aids use a size 312 battery that needs to be changed on average every 7-10 days up to a size 13 battery that needs to be changed on average every 10-14 days. The size of the battery depends upon the size of the hearing aid. These hearing aids are great for people with dexterity and vision concerns as the batteries and the physical size of the hearing aid are larger.

Receiver in the Canal "RIC" hearing aids are fairly invisible behind the ear. They are available in three different sizes depending on the size of the battery. The smallest "mini-RIC" hearing aids use a size 10 battery that needs to be changed on average every 3-5 days. These hearing aids are a great choice for someone who wants a small, discreet, and comfortable hearing aid. The standard RIC uses a size 312 battery that needs to be changed on average every 7-10 days and is a great choice for someone who wants a hearing aid that is a little bit easier to manage if there are concerns with dexterity. The RIC-13 hearing aid uses a size 13 battery that needs to be changed on average every 10-14 days and is a great choice for someone with concerns about dexterity and visibility. The main feature of the RIC hearing aid that sets it apart from other hearing aids is that the primary functioning of the hearing aid sits behind the ear while the sound is transmitted down a wire into a speaker in the ear canal. These are very flexible hearing aids when it comes to fitting many different types of hearing loss.

Behind the Ear "BTE" hearing aids are the largest style of hearing aid worn behind the ear and are a wonderful choice for anyone with visual and dexterity concerns. These hearing aids can be very powerful and are great for people with severe to profound he aring loss. These hearing aids typically use a size 13 battery that needs to be changed on average every 10-14 days.

Made for iPhone Apple has contracted with several hearing aid manufacturers to create direct connection between hearing aids and the iPhone. Made for iPhone hearing aids have all the same benefits of standard hearing aids but the added feature of being able to stream phone calls and media/music straight from the iPhone into the hearing aids. Features also include remote microphone use, sound space personal adjustments, and a "Find My Hearing Aid" tool.

How much do hearing aids cost?
Hearing aids range from around $1000.00 each up to $3500.00 each. The price is dependent upon the technology inside the hearing aid. Each person's technological need is different and is based upon the hearing loss, communication needs, listening environments and financial situation. Each purchase typically includes follow up adjustments, cleanings, and repair and loss and damage warranties. Your audiologist will help you to decide which level of technology will be best for your hearing needs.

Analog Vs. Digital
What is the Difference?
•     Digital hearing aids are currently the most technologically advanced hearing aids available today. The majority of new hearing aid users are fit with digital hearing aids.
•     Digital processing allows the sound input to be manipulated based upon the pitch and loudness of the incoming signal similar to a graphic equalizer on a stereo.
•     Analog hearing aids are still beneficial for some people who have previously used analog hearing aids and prefer that type of sound quality. Unlike digital hearing aids; however, analog hearing aids cannot be adjusted and fine-tuned specifically to every type and severity of hearing loss.
•     Some people with a history of analog hearing aid use find it very difficult to transition to hearing with digital hearing aids. This is not the fault of the person or the hearing aid, it is simply a subjective feeling about the sound quality.
