Modern hearing aids offer a wide range of functions and variety. Your hearing care professional will help you make the choice that is perfect for you. They will consider your hearing needs, your budget, your lifestyle and your individual hearing preferences. Below are a few important criteria in choosing a hearing aid.
Styles & Form
A style to suit everyone
The days of the ugly hearing aid are over! Once upon a time there was nothing discreet about hearing aids but now subtle design is paramount in any hearing aid development. Today’s hearing aids are small, discreet and stylish and come in a vast range of colours to suit every personality.
Technological breakthroughs have meant hearing aids are smaller than ever before – in fact, very often far less noticeable than wearing glasses.
Custom, In-The-Ear (ITE, ITC & CIC)
These models are made specifically to fit the shape of your ear canal for maximum benefit and the best possible comfort. They are available in many skin tones, are unobtrusive and very effective. The smallest models sit in your ear canal and are virtually invisible. These models are suitable for mild to severe hearing loss
Receiver In Canal (RIC)
These models are smaller than standard BTE models and are available for mild to severe hearing loss. They can be worn comfortably behind the ear. These models are available in many different colors, styles and designs.
Standard, Behind-The-Ear (BTE)
BTE models are available for all degrees of hearing loss and, as the name suggests, can be worn comfortably behind the car. These models are available in many different colors, styles and designs.
All hearing aids come with the latest technology which provide many new and refine features for better hearing and comfort. Such features are determined according to research and studies done and are there to provide:
- Your life, your soundscape
Thanks to unique and unmatched new features you will be able to capture more of the voices and sounds you want and need to hear. Actively holding a conversation while enjoying the outdoors on a windy day or focusing on a single voice in a noisy crowd. These are just two examples of challenging environments where you will be able to communicate and understand more.
- Understanding everywhere
Our unique Binaural VoiceStream TechnologyR detects the speech signal and ensures that you can hear it clearly in both ears. This means that you will understand more, in more listening situations.
- Understanding everything
Enjoying laughter, children’s voices or the subtle sounds of rustling leaves under your feet enriches your hearing world. Hearing the nuances of life’s soundscapes is part of the joy in rediscovering the pleasures of good hearing.
- Understanding with comfort
We know that engaging in conversations wherever you are is a top priority, hearing comfort however is just as important. Phonak hearing aids have a host of comfort features that can be set to your individual needs. They effectively eliminate uncomfortable and unwanted sounds whenever they occur
