Mild to moderate hearing loss
When finding a hearing aid to treat mild to moderate hearing loss, there are a wide range of hearing aid styles to choose from. Both in-the-ear and behind-the-ear hearing aid styles are suitable, and the features can be personalized based on your preferences.
Severe hearing loss
In the case of severe hearing loss, behind-the-ear hearing aids are the most common hearing aid type used to treat this type of hearing loss, due to the fact that they typically have the battery power and technology required to effectively treat severe hearing loss.Full shell in-the-ear hearing aids may also be an option, depending on your hearing needs. No matter the option you choose, the features in the hearing aid can be catered to your personal needs.
Profound hearing loss
For those with profound hearing loss, if a powerful behind-the-ear hearing aid does not significantly improve the ability to hear in everyday life, then a hearing care expert may recommend surgical solutions such as cochlear implants or bone anchored hearing systems.
