How to Choose the Right Hearing Aid?

How to Choose the Right Hearing Aid can be a rather tasking process. Let Nola Hearing of Metairie, LA assist you. Our Audiologist will make sure that you find a hearing aid that is right for your needs. We will help you learn about Hearing Aid Basics.   

There are two main types of hearing aids. The in-the-ear (ITE) styles and the behind-the-ear (BTE) styles. Both of these styles come in a variety of sizes. We provide you with a Hearing Aid Fitting once you have made your choice. 

In-the-ear (ITE) styles can be virtually invisible or fill the entirety of the bowl of the ear. Those individuals with mild or moderate hearing loss are ideal candidates for an ITE. This discreet hearing aid style has two basic devices; the invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) or the completely-in-the-canal (CIC). Both of these hearing aid styles fit deeply in the ear canal. They are small and practically disappear when worn. Low profile styles can be a half-shell (HS) design that fills half the bowl of the ear to styles that fill the entire bowl of the ear. All of these modern hearing aids are more cosmetic and discreet. 

Many of the behind-the-ear styles are also discreet and cosmetically appealing. The mini BTE is one of the most popular designs that hide behind the outer ear. BTE hearing aids are more equipped to help with more progressive hearing loss. Styles like the receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) or the receiver-in-canal (RIC) allow the speaker of the hearing aid to sit closer to the eardrum while the other components sit in a tiny case behind the ear.
