Choosing the right hearing aid is very personal and requires a consultation that is focus on your individual needs. The best hearing aid for you will depend on your lifestyle and your hearing goals.
It is important to know that you’re not alone. Approximately 1 in 10 people experience some degree of hearing loss and about 90% of people can be helped by wearing hearing aids.
Below you’ll find a list of SOME of your options with Sharpe Hearing Clinic, but don’t hesitate to ask about a model you don’t see here, or an option specific to your needs.
BTE styles are generally a larger hearing aid that can house more features and power to accommodate more severe to profound hearing losses.
RIC hearing aids are modern and designed to hide behind the ear with ultra thin tubing placing the speaker in the ear tip closer to the eardrum for a natural sound experience.
ITC styles sit in the lower portion of the outer ear. These are generally easier to handle and fit a wide range of hearing losses.
CIC hearing aids are very small for those who prefer a discreet solution. They fit deep in the ear canal and are typically fit to mild or moderate hearing losses.
During your assessment our focus is on you. By taking the time to get to know you as an individual, we can give you the tools you need to create real change with your hearing health. Hearing aids vary in price. If your listening needs are simple, a basic hearing aid may be enough for you. If you need to hear better in more noisy environments, then a specific level of technology may be what you need.
