- Your Hearing
Use the Navigation Buttons on the right to view the various body-styles of hearing aids. All feature all-digital technology and premium background noise elimination algorithms.
The list of the various bells & whistles is lengthy! Hearing aids may be fit with T-coil devices for ease of use on the telephone, BlueTooth integration for your cell phone, wireless or iPhone controllers, and various pre-programmed listening modes. The new Halo device for iPhone uses your GPS to automatically change listening modes by location.
The most popular device is actually the Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) or micro-RIC style due to its cost and discreteness. For most patients, you will notice someone wearing a micro-RIC long after an in-the-canal model.
The Halo device is quickly becoming a best seller. Slightly less discrete than a micro-RIC it has built-in Bluetooth capabilities for iPhone integration (including streaming music and talking on the phone).
The completely invisible in-the-canal models are the most discrete but have a few limitations such as more irritation for sensitive ears, more issues with wax build-up, and fewer advanced technology offerings due to the device’s tiny physical size.
Exact models are constantly being updated, so please use the list to the right as a general style guide.
