Today’s hearing aids are highly advanced, yet they are subtle enough that they are hardly noticeable in the ear. At Hearing Innovations, our Board Certified Doctors of Audiology will work with you to determine the hearing aids that best meet your needs, budget, and lifestyle. Pricing starts at under $1000 and there are many options to choose from, including the all-new built-in Bluetooth connected hearing aids.
Types of Hearing Aids
Receiver-in-the-Canal (RIC) Hearing Aids
A RIC hearing aid is similar to the BTE model in that the case rests behind the ear. However, the RIC consists of a super thin wire that carries sound to a speaker that fits comfortably inside of the ear canal. This type of hearing aid is barely noticeable and is perfect for being able to tune out background noise and amplify speech. Using bluetooth technology, RIC hearing aids can be connected to your phone, tablet, or car if you choose, and they feature several programming feature options that we can help you navigate.
Completely-In-the-Canal Hearing (CIC) Aids
Are you looking for a hearing aid that is virtually invisible? IC hearing aids are the smallest, most subtle choice, as they fit right inside of the ear canal. Or, choose a Completely in the Canal (CIC) hearing aid, which is so small it can fit deep inside of the canal, nearer to the eardrum. This type of hearing aid is best for patients who have mild to moderate hearing loss.
In-the-Canal (ITC) Hearing Aids
ITC hearing aids are designed for patients with varying severity of hearing loss. This aid is custom-made to fit snugly inside of the lower portion of the outer ear, so that it stays in place. Your Audiologist will work with you to select a color that matches your skin tone to ensure cosmetic preference. ITC hearing aids have several programmable features, and we can help you determine which features will work best for you.
Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids
These types of hearing aids are highly versatile, in that they are popular among patients of all ages with all types of hearing loss. As the name suggests, the casing of this hearing sits behind the ear, where it is hardly noticeable, especially on patients with longer hair. The earmold is designed to fit comfortably inside of the ear canal, significantly enhancing your hearing ability. You can also choose the color for your earmold, such as tan, pink, and clear, to make it even more discreet. We can program your BTE hearing aids to meet your specific needs.
Extended Wear Hearing Aids
If you are looking for a low-maintenance hearing aid, the Lyric hearing aid is for you. With this extended wear hearing aid, you will benefit from the invisibility of a CIC hearing aid, along with the ability to wear them all day, every day, for months at a time. These 24/7 hearing aids do not require batteries to be changed, cleaning to maintain and can be worn while showering and swimming. Our Board Certified Doctors of Audiology will review your medical history, hearing loss status and ear canal size and shape to determine candidacy. Enjoy a 30-day trial period with Lyric before committing to purchase these extended wear hearing devices.
Wireless & Bluetooth Options
The hearing aids we provide offer several programming features that can help enhance your hearing even further. These features include:
Feedback (whistling) control
Noise management programs
Wireless bluetooth controls
Automatic phone control
Based on your unique needs, we will help you determine the features that will best optimize your hearing!
Hearing Aid Repairs & Services
Our team is trained to offer a wide range of hearing aid services. Minor hearing aid issues can be repaired in office, and if your hearing aids have more significant damage, we can send them to the manufacturer to be fixed for you. We also recommend our patients come in for routine hearing aid maintenance twice a year. This includes a cleaning and testing of your hearing aids. Hearing Innovations will warranty most hearing aid brands in office.
Assistive Listening Devices
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) can be used by themselves or in conjunction with hearing aids or cochlear implants. These devices are particularly useful in helping users pick up and better hear speech and other sounds while decreasing background noise. There are many different types of ALDs, and most of them use a microphone in order to carry sound to either an FM, infrared or induction loop transmission. If you are having trouble separating important sounds from background noise, our providers can help you in choosing an ALD that works for you.
If you are struggling with hearing loss, hearing aids can help you restore your hearing and ability to enjoy life.
