Types of Hearing Aids

Hearing aids aren’t one-size-fits-all.

Hearing aids can differ based on whether they are digital or analog, worn primarily behind the ear or inside it, and are open fit or closed fit. Each of these variations has advantages for some hearing aid wearers, but not others. Learning about the different types of hearing aids available can help you determine which works best for your lifestyle and hearing needs.

Which Type of Hearing Aid Do You Need?

The best hearing aid style for you will depend on your hearing loss, concerns about appearance, and other lifestyle concerns. For example, if you have difficulty manipulating small objects, it might be easier to insert a behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid rather than an in-the-canal (ITC) one. Working with a trusted Hearing Care Professional is key to selecting the hearing aid style for your lifestyle, hearing needs and budget.
