Hearing Technology with a Methodical Plan
Although there has historically been a stigma attached to hearing aids through the large, clunky devices that you may remember your grandparents wearing, they have rapidly progressed over recent years with today’s technology being small, discreet, and, in some cases, even invisible.
The best part of recent technology is that unlike hearing devices of the past, they do not just amplify sound, but they also amplify your life. With connectivity to your cell phone, tablet, or television, you can stream music, audio, and phone calls directly to your hearing aids to be more connected than ever.
But in the same way that a racing car without a racing driver will never win a race, great hearing technology needs a great team of audiologists to achieve the best results.
Through caring for thousands of patients, Holland Hearing Center has developed a “Patient Journey” which outlines the unique process that we use to allow our patients to keep bringing their differences to the world and perform at their best through healthy hearing.
The Different Types of Hearing Aids
Invisible-In-Canal (IIC) – Virtually Invisible
If you have mild to moderate hearing loss, then IIC hearing aids are a viable style choice. They come custom-fitted to the unique shape of your ear canal, and in a choice of colors. The most unique feature of IICs are their deep insertion into the ear canal.
Severe to profound hearing loss patients usually require the additional performance capabilities provided by behind-the-ear hearing aids. Though not invisible, this instrument is more streamlined and lighter weight than its predecessors. Its technology is housed in the casing of the hearing aid, placed behind the ear while the clear plastic acoustical tube sends the amplified sounds into a customized earmold fitted inside the ear canal.
