Choosing the Right Hearing Aid
We carry a full line of hearing instruments from a variety of manufacturers to ensure that we can provide the hearing aids that best suit your needs. We provide routine in-office servicing of your hearing aids for the lifetime of the instruments.
When considering purchasing hearing aids, we recommend that you take into account several practical and medical factors:
First, you’ll want to determine your listening and lifestyle needs. We want to be sure that the hearing aid you decide on is the one best suited for you. Considering the following before choosing a style will ensure finding the hearing aid that was designed especially for people like you. Our staff will work with you to adress the following considerations and help guide you in the right direction.
Lifestyle: Do you enjoy environments that are rather loud and noisy, such as sporting events or shopping malls, or do you typically find yourself at a quiet restaurant or at home?
Family: Do you have a large family that keeps many conversations going on at once, or do you typically spend time with just a few loved ones at a time?
Degree of hearing loss: Depending on the severity of your hearing loss, you may consider one style over another, as not all styles are appropriate for all types of losses.
Budget: Every person prioritizes preferences differently, and while hearing aids are available at a variety of price points, it can be challenging to find one that meets all of your needs at the price that you want to pay. We are equipped to help you navigate this decision.
Expectations: What are you expecting this hearing aid to do? Aim to keep your expectations realistic. Hearing aids are just that: devices that can aid you in hearing. They can’t restore the hearing you may once have had.
Appearance: Hearing aids are available in a wide range of sizes, styles, and colors. You’ll need to decide which preferences are most important to you in order to get the look you want.
Ear anatomy: Some ear canals are smaller than others, and so there could be restrictions on the styles of hearing aids that will work best for you.
