You will find all hearing aid styles at the Hearing Wellness Centre. We carry the latest in hearing technology and are experts with matching your hearing needs to the styles and features available.
Styles of Hearing Aids
From extended wear to rechargeable devices, the hearing aid style that’s best for you depends on your hearing needs, your lifestyle, cosmetic concerns and any limitations with your vision or dexterity.
- Behind-the-ear (BTE) devices are worn behind the ear and the amplified sound is delivered to the ear through a tube connected to an earmold worn in the ear.
- Open-fit hearing aids are similar to BTE devices except the tube is inserted into the ear canal.
- In-the-ear (ITE) technology is custom fit to the shape of your ear. These devices are worn in the outer ear.
- In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids are also custom-fit, but are worn in the ear canal so they are barely noticeable.
- Completely-in-canal (CIC) devices fit so deeply in the ear canal they are almost invisible.
- Extended wear hearing aids by Phonak are inserted by the audiologist and stay in place until removed by the audiologist. They are like contact lenses for your ears!
Exposure to noise is the most common cause of sensorineural hearing loss. Custom hearing protection from the Hearing Wellness Centre fits comfortably and protects against damaging decibels.
Hearing Aid Batteries
Your hearing aids are powered by zinc-air replaceable or lithium ion rechargeable batteries. During your hearing aid fitting, the specialists at the Hearing Wellness Centre will show you how to change or recharge your batteries.
