Hearing Aids Receiver-In-the-Ear (RITE) hearing devices are comfortable because they keep the ear canal open to reduce any plugged-up sensation. The appropriateness of these hearing devices depends on the patient’s degree of hearing loss. Advanced features may include Bluetooth® compatibility. CIC hearing instruments In-The-Ear (ITE), In-The-Canal (ITC), and Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC) hearing instruments rest inside the ear rather than behind it, with CICs being the most discreet. These styles are appropriate for mild to severe hearing losses and may include features such as directional microphones, multiple listening programs, a tele-coil or Bluetooth® compatibility. BTE hearing aids Behind-The-Ear (BTE) instruments are appropriate for hearing losses from mild to profound. Directional microphones, multiple listening programs, tele-coil, and Bluetooth® compatibility are available features. This traditional style is a good choice for pediatric patients and individuals with excessive moisture and accumulative cerumen (earwax). Hearing Aid Manufacturers American Hearing & Balance deals with all major manufacturers: Oticon, Widex, Resound, Siemens, Starkey, Microtech, Phonak, Unitron, Sonic Innovations, Rexton, Interton, and Lyric Assistive Listening Devices You may have certain communication needs that cannot be solved by just using hearing aids. These situations may involve * the use of the telephone * listening to the radio * watching the television * the inability to hear the door chime, telephone bell, and alarm clock Special devices have been developed to solve these problems. Like hearing aids, assistive listening devices and alerting devices make sounds louder. Typically, a hearing aid makes all sounds in the environment louder. Assistive listening devices and alerting devices can increase the loudness of a specific desired sound, like a radio or television, a public speaker, or an alarm system, or may make an auditory alarm (such as a smoke signal) into a visual alarm (such as a strobe light).
