Hearing aids are available in a range of models. Each model is designed to meet differing requirements based on your hearing loss and anatomy. After your hearing evaluation, our Audiologists will explain the advantages and benefits associated with each hearing aid model suitable for your particular hearing loss and lifestyle. We will help you determine what model of hearing aids makes the most sense with your hearing loss, listening environments and budget.

The receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) style hearing aid is the smallest behind-the-ear style hearing aid. These are currently the most popular style of hearing aid and are virtually unseen when worn. The RIC might be tiny, but it packs a punch when it comes to performance, style, and one of a kind features.
The traditional BTE packs more power and reach than smaller devices and can offer both manual flexibility for control and automation for individuals with mild to severe hearing loss.
This type of hearing aid fits snugly inside the bowl-shaped area of the outer ear and can be used to fit mild to severe hearing loss. Although ITE hearing aids are more visible, they are generally easier to insert and adjust and have a longer battery life than other, smaller hearing aids.
This customer hearing aid model is molded to fit completely inside your ear canal. The outer faceplate of the shell is barely visible in the ear canal. The CIC is a very discreet option that can fit a mild to moderate hearing loss.
The newest in custom hearing aid styles is a micro device that fits deep into the ear canal completely hidden from view.
ITC instruments are custom built for your ear, so they fit snugly and comfortably. Only the face of the device extends into the outer ear, while the body extends into your ear canal. The slightly larger design offers extra power, making the ITC a great selection for mild to mildly severe hearing loss.
Thanks to current technology, the majority of hearing aids on the market are Bluetooth compatible with Apple and Android devices. Our team can help get you connected to enjoy streaming and phone calls directly through your favorite devices.
