Hearing Aids

Modern hearing aids have undergone remarkable advancements, making them smaller, more comfortable, and highly sophisticated. Gone are the days of bulky, conspicuous, noisy devices; today’s hearing aids are discreet and sleek, designed to fit comfortably in or behind the ear. Technological innovations have transformed them into powerful tools, often equipped with features like Bluetooth connectivity, allowing for seamless integration with smartphones, TVs, and other devices.

The Ear & Hearing Clinic is proud to be an independent clinic.

With no ties to any one hearing aid manufacturer, we have access to and experience with all modern hearing aid options. We are dedicated to keeping up with industry changes and our team of clinicians works collaboratively to share their education and expertise with one another. The result is that each of our patients can access a wider pool of experience and expertise to ensure optimal individual results.

Perfect Your Fit

No matter what brand, style, or technology level of hearing aid you choose, our highly trained clinicians will work with you and your hearing aids to optimize your hearing performance.

We follow audiological best practices. In addition to a detailed diagnostic, a comprehensive needs assessment, a clear discussion of options, and electroacoustic verification of your hearing aid function (quality control), our clinicians use real-ear verification to ensure that your hearing aids are meeting appropriate prescriptive targets prior to making further adjustments for your individual listening needs and providing a thorough orientation to your devices.

What are real-ear measurements?

Real-ear measurements involve placing a small microphone into the ear canal next to the eardrum to measure what the output of the hearing aid is on the ear at different levels and frequencies to confirm that it is meeting your gain prescription. Aside from the hearing aid software settings, hearing aid output is influenced by the physical fit of the hearing aid on the ear and the individual shape of your ear canal. Without real-ear measurements, the provider is taking a shot in the dark when adjusting your hearing aids and cannot know whether they are achieving maximum benefit – or any benefit.

Hearing Aid Styles

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

Comfortable, discrete and versatile. RIC hearing aids can accommodate mild to severe hearing losses and allow for a more open fit in the ear, which is critical for individuals with normal to near-normal low frequency hearing. These hearing aids are often the first to be released in any new line and come packed with advanced features.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

When maximum power is required, a BTE hearing aid comes to the rescue! However, coupled to a custom earmold, BTE hearing aids also come in power levels suitable for milder hearing losses. They are robust and easy to handle, and may be less susceptible to moisture and wax. For growing children, they are the best choice because the earmold offers better retention in the ear and it can be swapped out as the child grows.

Custom Full Shell (FS) / Half Shell (HS) / In The Canal (ITC)

Custom made to fit entirely in the ear while still offering full features, connectivity, and even rechargeability. A easy-to-manage, comfortable fit with nothing behind the ear. These hearing aids are suitable for moderate to severe hearing losses.

Custom Completely- or Invisible-in-the-Canal (CIC/IIC)

Fitted deeply inside the ear canal so as to be nearly invisible, CIC/IIC hearing aids may not have all the features of larger hearing aids but are the ultimate in simple discretion. Candidacy for these hearing aids is more sensitive to level of hearing loss and ear canal size, but those they work for love them!

Bring a loved one to your appointment

The most important thing we use our hearing for is communication, and communication is a two person (or more!) activity. We encourage you to bring someone with you to your appointment. It is not uncommon for a friend or family member to notice things that you miss when it comes to your hearing loss. They may also be helpful in identifying what listening situations are more or less difficult for you. If they are a frequent communication partner, it may be just as important for them to understand your hearing loss as it is for you to understand it. Untreated hearing loss can frequently cause misunderstanding or frustration in interpersonal relationships. Finally, if you do have a hearing loss there is a lot of new information to learn! Having someone with you can help.
