No two people hear the same sound alike. Because hearing is personal, Grusecki Audiology & Hearing Aid Services considers many factors when recommending the best hearing aid for you. These factors include your specific hearing needs, your lifestyle, any limitations in vision or dexterity, cosmetic concerns and budget. We offer the following styles of hearing aids from only the best manufacturers.
Hearing aid styles
Hearing aids can be worn in the ear or behind the ear. The price of hearing aids is determined more by the functions they offer and less by the size of the device. Smaller hearing aids use smaller batteries that need to be changed more frequently.
- Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids: BTE devices consist of two parts. One portion is a case worn behind the ear and the other is a small receiver worn in the ear. The two parts are connected by a slim tube. They are also available in a mini BTE style that is smaller and more discreet, with a receiver that is worn in the ear canal for even less visibility or with an earmold worn in the ear to enhance the listening experience. All BTE styles are well suited for those with mild-to-profound hearing loss.
- In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids: ITE devices are small, discreet and can be made to match your skin or hair tones. They are worn in the outer ear bowl and come in full and half shell. Full-shell hearing aids are made from a mold of your ear and sit in the outer area of the ear, while half-shell only covers partially. These devices are ideal for mild-to-moderately-severe hearing loss.
- In the canal (ITC) hearing aids: ITC devices are worn in the canal and offer the most privacy, coming in different sizes for your comfort. Invisible-in-canal (IIC) devices sit deeper in the ear canal and are barely visible. Completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids are worn completely in the ear canal. They are almost invisible. A small handle on the device aids in insertion and removal. ITC hearing aids fit deep in the ear canal and only a small portion of the hearing aid is visible. Most forms of ITC hearing aids are well suited for those with mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
