If you have hearing loss, wearing hearing aids has a beneficial effect on your mental and physical well-being. Today’s hearing aids are smaller and more powerful than ever and can be worn discreetly while at work, on the golf course or lounging by the beach or pool. Let the hearing health care professionals at Active Life Hearing match your hearing needs with the right technology to keep you fully engaged in life.
Styles of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids can be worn in the ear or behind the ear. The price of a hearing aid has more to do with the features and functions the device provides and less to do with the style or size.
- Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are very popular because they are discreet, powerful, perfect for those with mild-to-severe hearing loss, and are available in several options. The traditional BTE hearing aids have a case that is worn behind the ear and a small receiver worn in the ear. The two parts are connected by a slender tube. The Mini BTE is the same design but even smaller. For an enhanced hearing experience, the BTE is combined with a custom-made earmold or can even be combined with a receiver that sits in the canal.
- In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids are made to fit in the outer ear bowl. They may be full shell devices that sit in the outer portion of the ear or can also be equipped with a half-shell option. They are available in a variety of colors and tones, whether you want something that blends in with your hair or skin, or prefer something bolder. These hearing aids are appropriate for mild-to-moderately severe hearing loss.
- In-the-canal (ITC) devices are the most private of all hearing aid options. They are worn in the canal and come in two other varieties, completely in canal (CIC) and invisible in canal (IIC). Because of their size, they are suitable for individuals with mild-to-moderate hearing loss and are not recommended if you have dexterity issues.
The most common cause of sensorineural hearing loss is exposure to loud noise. Protect your hearing with custom hearing protection from Active Life Hearing. Custom protection is more comfortable and affords better protection than off the shelf earplugs.
Hearing Aid Batteries
Whether your hearing aids are powered by disposable or rechargeable batteries, Active Life Hearing has the batteries you need to keep your hearing aids going. The average hearing aid battery life depends on the number and type of features you use. Be sure to keep plenty of hearing aid batteries on hand, especially during hurricane season.
