How To Choose Between Hearing Aid Styles
The process starts with an intake questionnaire, a conversation with your audiologist, and a hearing test. Once we’ve gotten to know more about you and your hearing issues, we can recommend the hearing aid options that will be most likely to suit your needs.
It is worth noting that, in general, smaller hearing aids will cost more than larger ones. The miniaturization of technology required to fit in such a small package increases manufacturing costs.
Below are some details about the different styles of hearing aids available. By coming to your hearing test with some knowledge about the types of hearing aids that are available, you’ll be better prepared to make the best decision.
Styles of Hearing Aids
IIC hearing aids sit completely inside your ear canal. They sit deep enough in the canal that an attached silicone string is used to remove them. They are generally darker in color, allowing the natural shadows created by the outer ear to make them completely invisible.
While some models require a custom-fit earmold, Signia’s SilkXTM hearing aids use soft, silicone “Click Sleeves” to fit comfortably in most ear canals without requiring custom earmolds.
