Hearing Aids at Delaware Speech and Hearing Center
Hearing aids come in several styles, using different technology to maximize your auditory strength. At Delaware Speech and Hearing Center, we have several different hearing aid options, including:
- Digital – Digital hearing aids capture sound, and bring soft sounds into your range of usable hearing. They increase soft sounds quite a bit to make then hearable; they turn up medium sounds less than soft sounds to maintain the sense of soft and medium sounds. Then, digital hearing aids keep very loud sounds more tolerable by turning them up very little or not at all. Digital hearing aid technology is more flexible, providing more customization for the wearer.
- Entry Level Digital Hearing Aid Technology – Unlike obsolete Analog hearing aids, even today’s Entry Level Digital Technology hearing aids offer basic digital noise reduction and directional microphones. They offer clear, digital sound even at a conservatively priced option.
- Advanced Digital Hearing Aid Technology – Advanced Hearing Aid Technology extends beyond Entry Level Technology by providing higher accuracy and clearer sound quality. Several modern hearing aids are now Bluetooth enabled, allowing you to wirelessly connect your hearing aids directly to your computer, TV or cell phone for higher quality sound and easier hearing.
We also have all of the popular hearing aid styles, so that you can find the one that is most comfortable, discreet, or ideal for your specific hearing needs. These include:
- Behind the Ear Hearing Aids (BTE)
- In the Ear Hearing Aids (ITE)
- Receiver In the Ear Hearing Aids (RIC)
- In the Canal Hearing Aids (ITC)
- Completely In The Canal Hearing Aids (CIC)
