Hearing Aid Types & Styles
For better or worse, appearance is the first thing many people think about when they begin to consider hearing aids. We regularly assist patients who need help with hearing aids they have purchased elsewhere. Often these patients will admit that the appearance of the hearing aid they purchased was their primary consideration. This is a questionable approach and we caution you against it.
So when you consider the following information, remember that we will help you choose what is right for you. Often there are several styles that would work well for you, and we can present you with options. Other times it may be necessary to narrow your options to achieve success. In general, though, most contemporary hearing aids are pleasant to wear, and reasonably discreet.
