Helping You Choose The Right Hearing Aids Based On Your Unique Circumstances, Lifestyle, and Budget

You didn’t grow up looking forward to when you could wear your first hearing aids, but with studies suggesting that 1 in 8 Americans have a hearing loss in both ears, hearing aids are a critical part of caring for your hearing health with more and more Americans wearing hearing aids each year.

The good news is, hearing aids have changed a lot over recent times and are very different to the large, clunky devices that you may remember your grandparents wearing.

They are small, discreet, and sometimes even invisible while boasting incredible sound quality, technology that allows them to sync to your Apple and Android devices, and a selection of modes depending on your preferences. In fact, it’s highly likely that a friend, loved one, or co-worker is wearing hearing aids right now that you’ll have never noticed.

However, hearing aids are not one size fits all and with multiple styles, technology levels and price-points, the best option for you is heavily dependent on variants such as your level of hearing loss, lifestyle, and unique circumstances.

At Hearing at Home, we understand that hearing aids are only a small part of caring for your overall hearing health, with your level of care being equally critical.

To look at it another way, if hearing aids are the racing car, our level of care and service is the racing driver, and although the car needs to be great to win the race, the driver needs to understand how to drive it and be highly talented – that’s where “Hearing at Home” excels.

The Different Styles of Hearing Aids

Invisible-In-Canal (IIC)

Invisible-In-Canal (IIC) – Tiny & Often Invisible

If you have mild to moderate hearing loss, then IIC Hearing Aids are custom-fitted and come in a choice of colors. IICs are unique as they’re inserted deep into the ear canal, so depending on your ear shape, they’re often invisible when worn. This is a huge advantage for the style-conscious wearer.

Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC)

Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC) – Mostly Invisible

Unlike the IICs, these aids are comfortably inserted and extracted from your ear, with the small “handle” peeping out the side. They are custom-made and mostly invisible, as well as coming in a range of colors to match the skin-tone of your inner ear. They’re the perfect choice if you have mild to moderate hearing loss.

In-The-Canal (ITC)

In-The-Canal (ITC)

ITC hearing aids feature a custom-fit, skin-matching colors, and can be inserted and extracted with ease. Made to look as if they are a part of your natural ear, these aids are the perfect choice if your hearing is diminishing at a steady pace. Suitable for mild to mildly severe hearing losses.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

When you think “hearing aid” – the chances are you’re thinking of the BTE design. Usually worn by moderate to severe hearing loss patients, the technology is housed in the casing of these hearing aids, ensuring they rest comfortably behind the ear while the clear plastic acoustical tube sends the amplified sounds into a customized earmold that’s fitted inside the canal. Available in many different colors, they come with easy to use buttons and are highly discreet.

Receiver-In-The-Canal (RIC)

Receiver-In-The-Canal (RIC)

Barely visible when worn, the RIC style is an instrument in which the receiver, or speaker, is inside the ear canal. Thin electrical wires are used instead of a plastic acoustical tube, reducing distortion. RIC hearing aids provide a comfortable, open fit and are perfect for mild to moderate hearing loss.
