If you need hearing aids, North Hills Hearing Aid Center can help! We sell various styles of hearing aids to help you find the perfect solution for your needs! We will also make sure they are fitted properly for your ears and programmed how you need them. Below are some of the hearing aid options we provide.
iPhone Compatible Hearing Aids
These hearing aids pair with your smart phone to offer convenient technology that can function as an extension of your hearing aids. Here are some things it can do:
- Stream phone calls, music and video sound wirelessly into your ears.
- Customize your hearing aid settings without reaching up to your ears.
- Regulate the volume louder or softer, select a different listening program and sometimes adjust the bass and treble.
- Function as a microphone for use in extremely noisy places to isolate the specific conversation.
- Help you find a misplaced hearing aid via the “Find My Hearing Aids” feature.
For Android smart phone users these features are also available but may require the additional usage of a streamer which serves as a “go between” the phone and the hearing aids, depending upon the hearing aid manufacturer.
Invisible in the Canal (IIC)
These hearing aids are designed to sit deeply in the ear canal for an extremely discreet appearance. They still deliver the advanced sound processing and noise reduction technology that you need. These aids can work for mild to moderately severe hearing loss.
Completely in Canal (CIC)
These custom-fit devices are designed to sit snugly and discreetly into your ear canal while minimizing the interference of wind noise.
Behind the Ear (BTE)
This versatile hearing system houses all the electronic components in a case that sits neatly behind your ear with sound traveling into your ear canal via acoustic tubing. These flexible instruments enable volume and program changes to be easily made in varying listening environments. They are available in all technology levels.
Receiver in Canal (RIC)
The receiver-in-canal style is today’s most popular option due to its lightweight feel and flexibility in how it is fitted. It is also available as a rechargeable system eliminating the need for batteries.
In the Canal (ITC)
These hearing aids offer a comfortable custom fit that sits right at the entrance of your ear canal while still being discreet. This style can fit a wide range of hearing losses while using a larger battery than the smallest styles, thus providing a longer battery life. They are easy to insert and remove for better handling.
In the Ear (ITE)
This style is custom molded to your ear and allows for ease of handling. Because some of the electronics are housed in the bowl of the ear, it can satisfy the hearing needs of mild to severe losses. Volume controls and program change buttons allow for greater flexibility of adjustments. The larger battery will give more listening time between changes.
