How Hearing Aid Technology Has Advanced With The Times

Many who want hearing aids can be confused with the model types as well as their functions from the array of models provided. Santa Clarita Hearing Center provides full lists and functions of these models to better inform you of the hearing aids you can choose from.

Patients who suffer from severe hearing impairment would most likely benefit from the models such as the “In-the-ear (ITE) or Full Shell”. These models sit in ear and come equipped with features such as volume controls and longer battery life. However if your hearing impairment is not as severe you probably would like to know the sizes and ways other hearing aids can sit in or around the ear.

For those in need of an aid and dont need such a long battery life, the models such as Mini BTE and Invisible in-the-canal (IIC) may be a perfect fit! Controlling the way a hearing aid can be seen is a factor to many who would like the benefits but also want to be more discrete of their impairment. Smaller hearing aids still perform an amazing quality of aid while allowing the user to have increased air flow due to the size of the model.

Lastly, those who lay in the middle of the hearing aid spectrum can choose from even more model types all of which are:

  • Completely in-the-canal (CIC): discrete but more easy to notice
  • In-the-canal (ITC) or Half Shell: sit lower in the ear, come with volume control, directional microphones, and a larger battery

Or the behind the ear models which include:

  • RITE/ RIC (receiving in the ear/ receiver in canal) lays inside the ear and it differs from mini BTE due to the speaker being built in the tip rather than the body.

Along with different model types comes further advanced features such as bluetooth and wireless device pairing. This allows users of hearing aids to follow with the transition of technology while enjoying tv, movies, and music with the convenience of not having to constantly take in and out hearing aids to enjoy audio!
