“I haven’t been able to hear this well in years.”

“Over the course of 20 years, I have had several Audiologists. Never have I had one that I feel as comfortable with as our Audiologist here. You feel she is part of the family. The hearing aids feel like wearing earrings. I don’t even notice them there. When she put them in, I jumped! I could hear so much better. I haven’t been able to hear this well in years.”

Quiet:

The majority of your daily interactions are with a single person, rather than large groups with heavy background noise. You enjoy quiet conversations, infrequent shopping, watching TV, seeing movies, and talking on the phone.

Essential Tiered hearing aids:

  • Manual adjustment may be required for different types of environments 
  • Still requires the use of your listening effort for most listening environments
  • Convenient rechargeability for a full day of hearing

You are occasionally in environments with heavier background noise such as seeing friends or working in an office.  You participate in meetings, small group conversations, intimate restaurant settings, and listen to lectures/sermons from a distance.  

Standard Tiered hearing aids:

  • Allows you to hear more clearly in varied environments
  • Transitions between noise environments with occasional manual adjustment 
  • Still requires the use of your listening effort for some listening environments
  • Convenient rechargeability for a full day of hearing

  • Provides optimal customizable settings that are unique to your specific hearing needs
  • Automatic environmental detection to ensure effortless hearing in all situations

Hearing Aid Styles

Receiver in Canal (RIC)

RIC (receiver in the canal) styles discreetly sit behind the ear and are considered to be more comfortable than other designs. The open design allows for a more natural sound quality. Fact: 87% of our patients choose this style.

Related Conditions:

  • Fits a range of hearing losses
  • Connects to your smartphone and other devices
  • Available with rechargeability and Bluetooth connectivity

Behind the Ear (BTE)

As the name suggests, BTE hearing aids sit behind the ear and are slightly larger in size than a RIC hearing aid. BTE hearing aids are connected to an earmold which delivers the sound to the ear canal. Fact: 11% of our patients choose this style.

Related Conditions:

  • These durable devices are typically fit to those patients with severe to profound hearing loss
  • They are a good option for those people with limited dexterity
  • Available with rechargeability and Bluetooth connectivity

In the Ear (ITE) or In the Canal (ITC)

Generally speaking, the ITE varieties are most suitable in cases of mild to moderate hearing loss. The size of the device is dependent upon the patient’s ear canal. The variations in size in these devices are accompanied by variations in features such as a directional microphone, manual controls, etc. Fact: 1% of our patients choose this style.

Related Conditions:

  • A good choice for those who may have trouble fitting a BTE/RIC style hearing aid
  • Patients with near normal low frequency hearing may experience a “plugged up” feeling known as occlusion
  • Some models may connect to your smartphone for technology integration

Completely in canal (CIC) / Invisible in the canal (IIC)

These hearing aids are placed inside the ear canal, making them the most well-concealed option. Often flesh-toned, these hearing aids blend well with the ear, making them an option for those looking for the most discreet hearing solution. Fact: 1% of our patients chose this style.

Related Conditions:

  • Almost invisible to those around you
  • Requires batteries that are changed frequently
  • This style compromises technology integration because of the small design

The Latest Hearing Aid Technology 

Hearing aids of the past acted solely to amplify the sounds around you. This resulted in overly loud sounds that didn’t easily adjust to your immediate surroundings or sound like natural noise. Today, hearing aids have advanced to be a smart-device, easily integrating with the technology you use and automatically adjusting to meet your needs. Our providers can work with you to find the hearing aids that work best for you and can keep up with your active lifestyle. Some of the latest hearing aid features include:

Integrative Technology

Using Bluetooth technology, you can stream music, TV shows, movies, podcasts, and phone calls directly to your hearing aids.

On the Go Charging

Many of our hearing aids offer rechargeable batteries that allow you to charge from almost anywhere. The batteries can be recharged in just a few hours, which saves you time and money on replacements.

Multi-Directional Microphone Hearing

Rather than just one microphone amplifying the noise around you, modern hearing aids use multi-directional microphones to create a more natural listening experience. Using sensors the hearing aids can detect speech or noise within the environment and adjust accordingly.

Discreet Options

Hearing aids today are designed to seamlessly form to the shape of your ear and appear as discreet as possible. On top of being discreet, they are comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time.

Your Hearing Aid Experience at Hearing Specialists of Texas

At Hearing Specialists of Texas, we work with you to determine what type of hearing aid will best suit your specific needs. This may be a custom hearing aid or one of our other models. One concern for every hearing aid wearer is the physical fit of the instrument. We will show you how to fit them comfortably in or behind the ear properly.

When you first get your hearing aid, it will be adjusted and programmed to provide the correct amount of amplification specific to your needs. One of our audiologists will then help you with the proper alignment and placement of the hearing aid – based on the type and model you and your audiologist have chosen.

Adjustments will be made to ensure the fit meets your comfort and amplification needs.

Follow-up appointments are meant to get you to a position where you no longer have to think about your hearing aids – they are simply part of your day. We work with you during this time to educate and make any needed adjustments to your new hearing instrument. Our audiologists will answer questions and provide you with additional materials if needed. We encourage our patients to think of our audiologists as members of their healthcare team – long-term partners in ensuring the best sound quality and comfort possible.

Hearing Aid FAQ's

If I have hearing loss in both ears, do I need one or two hearing aids?

If you have hearing loss in both ears, you will benefit from having a hearing aid for each ear. Wearing a hearing aid in each ear will help you localize or determine where sounds are coming from in the environment and will increase your ability to understand speech in noisy environments.

Why can I hear people talking, but I can’t understand what they are saying?

If you find yourself hearing people talk but have difficulty understanding the words clearly, you likely have hearing loss. It is common to lose the ability to hear high pitch sounds (consonants), yet still hear the low pitch sounds (vowels). This type of hearing loss results in the inability to understand speech clearly and can worsen when in noisy environments such as restaurants or parties.

Do hearing aids help on the telephone?

Hearing aids do help you hear better on the telephone. Our latest technology utilizes Bluetooth connectivity for use with cell phones. Additionally, hearing aids can be equipped with a telecoil to allow amplification of ONLY the signal coming from the phone without amplifying the noise in the room.

Will hearing aids help me hear the TV better?

Hearing aids will help you hear the television better. While wearing your hearing aids, you should be able to set the television volume at a comfortable listening level for others and still hear it comfortably.

What’s the life of a hearing aid? How long will they last?

Typically, with proper cleaning and maintenance, the life of a hearing aid is about 3 to 5 years. Annual hearing tests are recommended to determine if your current hearing aids remain within the appropriate prescription range. Lifestyle changes may also lead to recommendations to obtain new hearing aids.
