Hearing Aids Overview
Hearing aids have come such a long way since the first behind-the-ear models were produced in the 1960s and 1970s. In fact, you might recall what some of these hearing instruments looked like: big, cumbersome and very visible. They'd amplify almost everything around. Nowadays however, hearing aids are more discreet, easy to use and technologically advanced more than ever before.
Which hearing aids will suit you? This depends on the extent of your hearing loss, the places where you want to hear better, how active your lifestyle is, and what kinds of technology you would want to use. Here are some of the most common types of hearing aids we offer:
Why two hearing aids?
If you have been diagnosed with bilateral hearing loss, it is best to wear two hearing aids. Bilateral hearing loss (which affects both ears) is more common than single-sided hearing loss. The use of two hearing aids will:
- Help you identify where sounds are coming from
- Maximize your chances of understanding speech, even from a distance
- Aid in identifying soft sounds
- Help you experience your sound environment more fully
