What is the Best Type of Hearing Aid

Approximately one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 has a hearing loss!


After your audiologist has prescribed hearing aids for you, one of the first decisions you'll have to take is regarding the style of the hearing aids. You will need to decide which style of hearing aids you actually want to go for.


The most common types of hearing aids are Receiver-in-the-Canal (RIC) hearing aids , Behind-The-Ear (BTE) hearing aids and In-The-Ear (ITE) hearing aids.


Hearing aids should be selected, first and foremost, based on the type and severity of the hearing loss and, secondly, based on your lifestyle needs. Every person is unique, so we recommend that you consult an audiologist who can help you find the best solution for you.


Overall, RIC and BTE hearing aids are more powerful and can provide better sound access especially if your hearing gets worse. They are sleek and less visible than the ITE hearing aids! If you have poor dexterity with your hands you can go for the rechargeable option. The ITE hearing aids are suitable for a mild to moderate hearing loss but they cannot connect to bluetooth for phone calls, they are not rechargeable and they are not suitable for people who have alot of wax.
