How to select a hearing aid

If a Hearing Aid Audiologist has diagnosed hearing loss for which you require hearing aids, you will have a few options to choose from. Depending on the degree of hearing loss you are experiencing, as well as the type of hearing aid you would prefer to wear, you will be able to come to a decision that both the audiologist and you are happy with. Making the decision together is important, as your audiologist will be able to make recommendations based on your particular level of hearing loss, whilst you will be able to advise which style and design you prefer.

Scrivens Hearing Care has a wide variety of hearing aids available. For example, some options include:

  • On the Ear (OTE) – one of the most commonly worn hearing aids as they are small, subtle and available in a variety of designs and colours. They are a popular choice for first-time hearing aid wearers as they provide a more natural sound.
  • Behind the Ear (BTE) – hearing aids which provide the most power, as well as being able to handle moderate to severe hearing loss. BTEs are even suitable for those with a profound hearing loss.
  • In the Ear (ITE) – custom made hearing aids which fit into the bowl shaped area of your outer ear instead of inside the ear canal. A popular choice due to their discreet size and comfortable fit.

There are numerous hearing aids available at Scrivens Hearing Care – pop into your local branch to find out more.
