The right hearing aids for your style, and your lifestyle
Nobody grows up looking forward to the day that they get to wear hearing aids, but with one in every eight people over the age of 12 having some form of hearing loss within the USA, hearing aids are an essential part of caring for your hearing health.
At Acadian Hearing, we know that there’s not a “one size fits all” approach to hearing aids.
Instead, we choose the right hearing aids for you based on your budget, your level of hearing loss, your preferred style, and to suit your lifestyle.
We’ll sit down with you in a relaxed environment and discuss your options, test a range of different styles, and help you make the right decision.
But before we explore the best hearing aids for you, your first step is to book your hearing assessment so we can evaluate your hearing.
We may find that your hearing loss is simply because of a build-up of ear-wax or there’s a simple solution, but the first step is to evaluate your hearing.
Invisible In The Canal (IIC)
The smallest custom style, IIC instruments, sit invisibly in or past the second bend of the ear canal. IIC devices are specifically designed for mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
Completely in the Canal (CIC)
The smallest custom style, CIC instruments, fit deeply and entirely within the ear canal. They fit mild-to-moderate hearing losses and offer high cosmetic appeal, as they’re nearly invisible when worn.
In the Canal (ITC)
ITC instruments sit in the lower portion of the outer ear bowl, making them comfortable and easy to use. Because they’re slightly larger than CIC models, they have a longer battery life, and can host additional features such as directional microphones for better understanding in noisy environments, and controls such as volume controls. They fit mild and moderate hearing losses.
Full Shell or In the Ear (ITE)
Full shell models sit flush within the outer ear bowl. Their size allows the maximum number of additional controls and features, such as directional microphones, which require space on the outer portion of the instrument. They use a larger battery size than the smaller styles and can fit a larger receiver with enough power for even some severe hearing losses. Because of their flexibility, they’re widely recommended for mild-to-severe hearing loss.
Receiver in ear (RIC)
RIC models are mini BTEs that have the speaker of the instrument incorporated in the ear tip, instead of in the main body of the instrument. RIC instruments fit mild-to-severe hearing losses. This hearing aid style looks similar to the Mini BTE when worn on the ear.
BTE with Earmold
BTEs with earmolds fit mild through profound hearing losses. Their longer shape follows the contour behind the outer ear and can house many features, including a program button and volume control. The earmold color and style, as well as the wearer’s hairstyle, determine exactly how they’ll look on each person.
