How to select a hearing aid

Choosing a hearing aid

Today’s hearing aids are comfortable, attractive and so small that most people will not even know you are wearing one. So how do you choose which one is right for you? Your hearing healthcare provider is an excellent resource. Schedule a free consultation with a hearing healthcare professional near you. The type of hearing loss you have, your lifestyle and your personal preferences in color and style will all influence the devices you ultimately purchase.

Your anatomy

The shape and size of the outer ear and ear canal may determine which type of hearing instrument you can wear. Your hearing healthcare professional will work with you to find the style that best fits your unique anatomy.

Ease in handling

Some styles, like BTE (Behind-the-ear) hearing aids are easier to handle, insert and clean due to their size and shape. It is important to consider this when selecting your hearing aids.

Your hearing loss requires the best hearing aid

Your unique hearing loss requires a tailored approach to selecting your hearing aid. Your hearing healthcare professional will test your hearing and suggest the styles best suited to give you the best results for your anatomy and lifestyle.

Listening and lifestyle needs

In general, the larger the aid is, the easier it will be to insert and clean, and the longer its battery will last. The more active your lifestyle, the more you will need advanced features. Your hearing healthcare professional will work with you to find the style that best fits your lifestyle, budget and degree of hearing loss.
