Types of Hearing Aids

When it comes to choosing the perfect hearing aids, all the choices can seem overwhelming. At Pratt Hearing Aids, we're here to guide you through the world of hearing aids.

Middle Ear Implants

For individuals who cannot wear conventional hearing aids, middle ear implants might be the perfect solution. A microphone behind the ear converts sound into vibrations and transmits these vibrations to an implanted device within the middle ear. Middle ear implants are recommended for individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss, as well as those with allergies, frequent ear infections, or narrow ear canals.

Extended-Wear Hearing Aids

Extended-wear hearing aids offer a unique hearing experience. These devices are comfortably positioned deep within the ear canal so they’re completely invisible. The hearing aid can be worn for extended periods of time, so you don’t have to put them on every morning or take them out at night. They can reduce distortion, feedback, and wind noise, all while enhancing hearing. Extended-wear hearing aids are recommended for adults with mild to moderate hearing loss.

Digital Hearing Aids

Digital hearing aids offer remarkable benefits when compared to analog devices. While analog hearing aids just amplify sounds to make them louder, digital hearing aids can go a step further. Digital hearing aids offer a range of advanced functions like background noise reduction and speech enhancement. Key advantages of digital hearing aids include:

  • Enhanced sound clarity, making it easier to ignore background sounds and focus on speech.
  • Efficient feedback elimination, preventing the annoying ringing often associated with analog aids.
  • Automatic volume adjustments to adapt to changing environments, eliminating the need for manual tweaks.

Wireless Hearing Aids

Modern hearing aids typically eliminate visible wires or cords. These wireless hearing aids can connect with other electronic devices without needing to plug them in. Wireless hearing aids can connect to your smartphone, computer, TV, and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. 

Wireless hearing aids can also communicate with each other. This means you’ll enjoy better sound quality, especially in places with background noise. Wireless hearing aids are also perfect for anyone who has single-sided hearing loss or has worse hearing loss in one ear compared to the other.

Wireless hearing aids offer the following advantages:

  • Hear sound in both ears simultaneously, refining and balancing your listening experience.
  • Adjust volume effortlessly across both hearing aids via a single button press.
  • Personalize settings to adapt to various environments, from bustling malls to noisy restaurants.
  • Eliminate unwanted background noise, ensuring clearer listening experiences.
  • Stream audio content directly to your hearing aids, from TV shows to podcasts, without any distortion.
  • Enhance speech or music clarity for a clearer sound experience.
  • Use a remote control for volume adjustments and seamless device switching for streaming audio.

Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids enhance your listening experience, giving you crystal-clear sounds like never before. You’ll be able to stream audio from your devices right to your ears for a seamless listening experience.
