How to Pick the Best Sounding Hearing Aid

We Will Help You Find The Best Hearing Aid to Fit Your Unique Lifestyle

Hearing aids are not one size fits all. The right solution to correct hearing loss is as unique as a fingerprint. In our practice, patients work side-by-side with Dr. Kallio to be certain the hearing aid is comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and improves hearing as much as possible.

Every individual’s hearing loss is unique. For this reason, we carry devices from multiple manufacturers. We only work with manufacturers with the highest patient satisfaction, on-going research and development and outstanding customer service.

Which Hearing Aid is Right for You?

Receiver in ear (RIC)

RIC models are mini BTEs that have the speaker of the instrument incorporated in the ear tip, instead of in the main body of the instrument. RIC instruments fit mild-to-severe hearing losses. This hearing aid style looks similar to the Mini BTE when worn on the ear.

In the ear (ITE)

ITC instruments sit in the lower portion of the outer ear bowl, making them comfortable and easy to use. Because they’re slightly larger than CIC models, they have a longer battery life, and can host additional features such as directional microphones for better understanding in noisy environments, and controls such as volume controls. They fit mild and moderate hearing losses, but not for infants or young children.

In the canal (ITC)

ITC instruments sit in the lower portion of the outer ear bowl, making them comfortable and easy to use. Because they’re slightly larger than CIC models, they have a longer battery life, and can host additional features such as directional microphones for better understanding in noisy environments, and controls such as volume controls. They fit mild and moderate hearing losses, but not for infants or young children.

Microphone in Helix (MIH)

ReSound’s Microphone-in-Helix (MIH) custom hearing aid is a solution that brings together the open fit, durability and higher gain of a BTE and mixes it with the discreet, cosmetically-appealing size and easy insertion of an ITE. Engineered to fit within the contours of the external ear, the MIH works by leveraging the natural effects of the pina and ear.

Completely in canal (CIC)

One of the smallest custom styles, CIC instruments, fit deeply and entirely within the ear canal. They fit mild-to-moderate hearing losses and offer high cosmetic appeal, as they’re nearly invisible when worn.
