Audiology & Hearing Aid Center offers a wide range of hearing aid styles and technology so rest assured of finding just the right device to meet all of your needs — including your budget. Modern Hearing Aids are so small, discreet and comfortable that you may forget you’re wearing them and no one else will know! Bluetooth and Wireless Connectivity is available so you can audio stream from your Smart Phone or TV into your hearing device.

When you order new hearing aids at the Audiology & Hearing Aid Center, we will schedule an appointment to come back in at our earliest availability for a hearing aid fitting. In some instances, such as with the new open-fit hearing aids, you may be fitted the same day you order. At the fitting appointment, we have several things to accomplish. First, we place your new hearing aids into your ears to make sure they fit properly with no discomfort. Next, we do some programming and calibrating using our sophisticated computers and software, to make sure the sound is just right for your hearing loss. We will verify these settings using “real-ear measurement” testing and possibly “functional gain” testing. These are both advanced techniques used to make sure your hearing aids are set just right for you… gone are the days when we’d just turn a screwdriver control and say, “So – how does that sound?”

When we’re sure that the fit and sound are just right, we spend some time teaching you some things you’ll need to know to be successful with your new hearing aids. We make sure you can get them in and out without any problems and that you know how to change the batteries, as well as how to keep them clean and dry. We show you how to use them with a telephone and how to adjust volume and change programs, if those are features that you have chosen.

If that sounds like a lot to absorb at one sitting, we agree! That’s why we will invite you to attend one of our free hearing aid orientation seminars that are designed to teach you and your family members how to get the most from your new hearing aids! Last but not least, before you leave your fitting appointment, we will schedule a follow up appointment for about a week later. We will continue to meet with you, as needed, until we are sure you’ll do great with your new hearing aids!

The miniRITE style is extremely popular because of its tiny size and many features.

Receiver-in-the-Ear

The RITE style is slightly larger than the miniRite, but still barely noticeable.

Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC)

The CIC style offers the ultimate in concealment. These are so small that they are virtually invisible and are preferred by those with wider ear canals. (Not suitable for sever hearing loss.)

In-the-Canal (ITC)

The ITC style offers more concealment because they fit down in the canal of the ear and they are relatively unnoticeable. They are a compact solution that fits deeper in the ear compared to the ITE style.

In-the-Ear (ITE)

The ITE style is custom made to fit in your ear with no wires or tubes coming out of the ear. ITE hearing aids allow for a comfortable fit and will meet a wide variety of hearing impairments.

Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

The BTE style places the circuitry and microphone behind the ear. BTE hearing aids meet a wide range of hearing needs and frequently are used for more severe hearing impairments or steeply sloping hearing impairments where air ventilation is required.

Mini Behind-the-Ear (miniBTE)

The BTE style places the circuitry and microphone behind the ear. BTE hearing aids meet a wide range of hearing needs and frequently are used for more severe hearing impairments or steeply sloping hearing impairments where air ventilation is required.

Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC)

The IIC style fits far enough in your ear to be completely unnoticeable to everyone around you.

Power Aid

The Power style provides extra powerful sound output for severe and profound hearing loss. It is typically fitted with an earmold mold.
