Finding The Perfect Hearing Aids Or Hearing Solution To Match Your Unique Circumstances

Very few people grow up looking forward to the day that they get to wear hearing aids, but with 28.8 million Americans suffering from hearing loss, they’re often the solution to experiencing greater hearing once again.

The problem is, hearing aids are often remembered as large devices found in the drawers of elderly relatives – but the truth is, technology has drastically advanced and hearing aids are now remarkably small and almost invisible with advanced abilities that were deemed impossible just a decade ago.

They even boast incredible technology including the ability to connect to your Smartphone to stream sound directly into your ear, and they even have options for rechargeable batteries.

But the real reason why North Houston Hearing Solutions is unique is that unlike many other hearing centers, we don’t limit our technology to one manufacturer – this means that we can work with you to always source the right hearing aids and hearing solutions for your budget, lifestyle, and unique circumstances.

The Different Hearing Aid Styles

Invisible In The Canal (IIC)

Designed for mild to moderate hearing losses, IIC instruments are the smallest custom style devices available. In fact, they are invisible, as they are worn past the second bend of the ear canal.

Invisible In The Canal (IIC)

Completely in the Canal (CIC)

CIC instruments offer a high cosmetic appeal because they are fitted deeply within the ear canal, making them almost invisible. They are a great option for mild to moderate hearing losses.

Full Shell or In the Ear (ITE)

Full shell models are larger instruments, sitting flush within the outer ear bowl. They require a larger battery, but this allows room for additional controls and features such as directional microphones and larger receivers. This flexibility means they have enough power for more severe levels of hearing loss. They are recommended for mild to severe hearing loss.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

When you imagine hearing aids, you probably envision the BTE design. These are usually worn by patients with a moderate to severe hearing loss. The main body rests comfortably behind the ear and you’ll find its technology within the casing. A clear plastic acoustical tube sends the amplified sounds into a customized earmold that’s worn inside the canal. BTEs come in many different colors with easy to use buttons. They are highly discreet.

In the Canal (ITC)

ITC instruments fit within the lower portion of the outer ear bowl, therefore making them comfortable and simple to use. Their slightly larger size than CIC models gives them a longer battery life. They are also able to host additional features, such as directional microphones, which make noisy environments easier to handle, and volume controls. Those with mild and moderate hearing losses can benefit from ITC instruments.

I have only had great service during all the times. I felt that the audiologist and other staff were always on top of the service I receive. From calling to remind me that it is time to check my hearing aid to helping wade through the insurance paperwork, they were always as nice as can be. I would go nowhere else for hearing aids and the service”
