When it comes to hearing aids, choosing the right style is key to a comfortable and successful experience. Let’s break it down without the technical jargon. There are 2 main categories of hearing aids.
Ones that sit only In-the-Ear (ITE) and one that sit Behind-the-Ear (BTE). Today the most popular styles are Behind-the-Ear (BTE). This has a piece that sits behind your ear and suits various hearing losses. This style can fit and accommodate the newest technology inside the hearing aid.
Some people prefer the In-the-Ear (ITE) style. These are easier to insert and are easier to handle compared to the BTE style. Also, the smallest style hearing aid is the Completely-in-Canal (CIC). These can be nearly invisible and tuck deep inside the ear canal.
The tradeoff for small size is they have less features and capabilities. Why does it matter? Well, getting the right style ensures comfort and better hearing. Whether you’re working from home in Northborough or a retiree in Southborough, there’s a style that fits you. Now, go ahead and make the choice that suits your vibe. Your ears will thank you!
