|Hearing Aids Come In Many Styles|
|Category: Health: Hearing Aids|
|People often resist getting a hearing aid because they're afraid to admit they are losing their hearing, they're worried about the cost, or they may have had a relative or friend who had a bad experience with a hearing aid. But these concerns shouldn't stop them from getting a device that will help improve their quality of life. By following some common-sense steps, selecting Hearing Aids should be an easy and positive experience.
There are several styles of Hearing Aids. Every style carries sound from the outside environment into the wearer's ear, but there are pros and cons to each style. The device that fits completely in the ear canal is the least noticeable, but its batteries are smaller, so they don't last as long. Another device fits partly in the ear canal and partly outside, so it is also less noticeable, but it may not fit people with smaller ears. It's best for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. The half-shell hearing aid is a smaller version of the in-the-canal device, and is a good choice for people who have moderately severe hearing loss. This type of device offers directional microphones and volume control. A full shell, in-the-ear device helps people with severe hearing loss. A behind-the-ear hearing aid hooks over the ear. It's a good choice for any type of hearing loss; however, it is generally the largest and most visible of the hearing aids. An open fit device sits behind the ear and is not very visible, but is recommended for people who have high-frequency hearing loss, but still hear lower-frequency sounds.
The electronics in Hearing Aids can include directional microphones and telephone adapters that make it easier to hear when talking on the telephone. Newer hearing aids can transmit sound from Bluetooth devices wirelessly, so a mobile phone isn't needed. Some hearing aids feature remote control features that let the wearer adjust volume or other controls without touching the hearing aid.
When it's time to consider getting a hearing aid, a hearing test should first be scheduled. Then a hearing aid clinic can review test results and help the customer decide on the style of hearing aid that best fits his or her hearing loss, price requirements, and cosmetic preference. Many companies allow customers to try the Hearing Aids at home before purchasing them. For these reasons, it's a good idea to have a check-up if you suspect you might need a hearing aid.
