The Best Hearing Aids
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution or one hearing aid that is the best answer for everyone. Instead, we have to figure out what the right hearing aids are for each individual patient. Our recommendations are always personalized to our patient’s needs. When we are searching for your solution, we will gather a thorough history on your hearing health, and ask questions about your current lifestyle demands, such as:
- How active are you socially?
- What types of events do you go to?
- Do you work?
- Are you on the phone a lot?
We’ll find out where your biggest hearing difficulties are, then make recommendations based on what you really need. If you lead a quiet lifestyle, you may require different technology than someone who spends their time hiking or in many business meetings. You may want all the advanced features, such as Bluetooth connectivity, or your may not desire those features. It all depends on you. If you’ve worn hearing devices before, we’ll ask you what you liked or didn’t like about your previous hearing aids.
Hearing Aids Styles
This hearing aid is hidden behind the ear and has a clear tube that hooks around the top
Similar to the BTE, this sits behind the ear, but has a receiver that is inserted into the ear canal.
This hearing aid is fitted and sits inside of the ear canal.
This hearing aid sits on the outer portion of the inner ear.
This is the smallest hearing device. It requires a custom fitting and is inserted deep into the ear canal.
Of these styles, our most popular is the receiver-in-canal, which is discreet and has good quality of sound. But we have patients who prefer other models, such as the custom-fit CICs. We’ll talk to you about the benefits of each model and find one that you like.
Hearing Aid Technology
The main cost differentiator among hearing aids is the level of technology you choose. Most manufacturers offer three or four technology levels, from simpler hearing aids to more advanced models. The biggest difference among these is how much background noise management is included in the hearing aid, so a lot depends on whether you spend your time in quiet environments or more demanding ones. We’ll match our recommendations to your lifestyle needs. We never upsell; our patients trust us because we’re honest about what we think will be best for them.
We’ve been really amazed by recent advancements in hearing aid technology. For example, bluetooth connectivity has taken off in many ways, allowing you to stream straight to your hearing aids from your television, your smartphone, or any other bluetooth-enabled device. We also appreciate the rechargeable hearing aids that have revolutionized the experience for many of our patients. It’s much more convenient to charge your hearing aids overnight and know they’ll be good to go the next day.
Hearing Aid Brands
We work with all major hearing aid manufacturers including Oticon, Signia, ReSound, Starkey, Widex, and EarQ. The hearing aid market is always changing and product lines are always improving. Manufacturers keep putting out new devices and technologies that change the world of hearing aids. Once we understand your hearing loss and what you need from a hearing aid, we’ll recommend a brand and a model that we think will suit you. Each brand has its own strengths, such as smartphone streaming or an aesthetic look. We also work with Phonak, Bernafon, Sonic Innovations, Rexton, and Unitron.
Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance
Since your hearing devices go with you everywhere, it’s only natural that they’ll experience some wear and tear. We recommend that you schedule routine service and cleaning on your hearing devices in order to keep them in great shape and allow you to get the most out of them. If something were to happen to your hearing devices, we are able to fully service all makes and models right in our office with short turnaround times. Some repairs can even be done on the same day so you won’t have to spend time without your hearing aids.
If you have purchased hearing aids from someone else and are in need of service, we’ll be happy to help you with cleaning and adjustments for a reasonable fee. We also work with Ear Service Corporation (ESCO) to ensure your devices are protected.
Hearing well is an investment you make in yourself and in your quality of living. At Kendall Audiology, we do everything we can to help you make this investment. Hearing aids come in different levels of technology available to meet different budgetary needs, and our office also offers 12-month no interest financing through CareCredit.
