Hearing Aids Columbus
How to get the service and products you want
Let's face it- you don't spend all day studying up on the latest developments in hearing aid technology, and you probably don't have an engineering degree that can help you understand all of the jargon and technilogical speak. But you're the one with the issue. You're the one that needs to decide what to do about your hearing, and select one of the hearing aids Columbus has to offer you.
Because your hearing is so important, it is vital that you talk to someone about it that understands not only the technology itself, but also underlying concerns. How does a particular kind of hearing aid affect your lifestyle? What kinds of options and benefits do you need to get the biggest benefit? If you don't receive answers to these kinds of questions, you could end up making a costly mistake.
Your device is as unique as you
While hearing aids have gotten smaller and more advanced over the decades, there is still no single cure, no one hearing aid that will work for every person, everywhere, all the time.
The problem is that not all hearing loss is the same. Each person must be diagnosed individually. Subsequently, there are a huge number of hearing aids available on the market today. Only after obtaining a thorough understanding of the unique hearing loss issues you face every day can an expert help you select the unique device that's best for your lifestyle.
But don't just take our word for it; check out the many different kinds of hearing aids that are available in order to see why professional service is a good idea. Although not every location may have every kind of hearing aid available, you should know the basic kinds of devices before you get your evaluation.
Completely in the canal:
Molded to fit inside your ear, these models can improve mild to moderate hearing loss in adults while being nearly invisible to outside observers. They are easy to use with telephones but do not have as many features as some of the other types due to their small size.
In the canal:
These custom molded hearing aids are custom molded and fit partly in the ear canal, making them less noticeable than some of the larger hearing aids available. While they have slightly more features than the completely-in-ear-canal hearing aids, they are still limited due to their small size and are thus best used when for mild to moderate cases.
If you have mild to moderately severe hearing loss you may want to consider the half-shell hearing aid, as it has additional powerful features like directional microphones and volume control. The half shell is custom molded and fills the lower portion of the bowl-shaped area of the outer ear.
In the Ear (Full Shell):
If you have anything from mild to severe hearing loss and want one of the hearing aids Columbus has with great features such as volume control, the Full Shell may be your best bet as long as you do not care that it is very visible and covers most of the bowl-shaped area of your outer ear.
Behind the Ear:
These hook over the top of your ear and rest behind it. The aid picks up sound, amplifies it and carries that sound to an ear mold in your ear canal. While these devices may not be as discrete as others, they are often more useful. In fact, they are appropriate for almost all types of hearing loss and for people of all ages.
These are typically very small and are placed behind the ear. Sound travels from the instrument to a tiny speaker in the ear canal and because of that we recommend them for those who have trouble with high frequencies.
