Hearing aid technology has taken a quantum leap forward in recent years. There are now hearing aids that can fit any ear shape and improve nearly every problem.

Tune into the world around you with the sleek, hidden designs and advanced features of modern hearing aids. Like tiny, high performing computers, their modern technology and ability to connect wirelessly to other devices, such as cells phones or TVs, is revolutionary.

What do modern hearing aids have to offer?

Rechargeable

The latest hearing aids offer rechargeable batteries. When charged, the batteries allow the user to enjoy up to 24 hours of uninterrupted hearing. You can charge your hearing aid as easily as your mobile phone. With no batteries to dispose of, rechargeable hearing aids are also environmentally friendly.

Digital networking

The most advanced hearing aid technology. Can be paired wirelessly via Bluetooth with smartphones or smart watches. You can make a phone call easily via the hearing aid using Andriod, iOS or other operating systems. You can also connect wirelessly to your TV; this turns the hearing aid into wireless headphones, allowing you to enjoy the sound at your comfortable level.

Hearing Aid Styles

With so many options, how do you choose? Hearing aids come in a variety of different styles and colors; each different variety comes with its own advantages. At Crystal Vision & Better Hearing, our hearing professionals are extensively trained in picking the right product for your needs.

The most common hearing aids are:

Behind-the Ear (BTE)
Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)
In-the-Ear (ITE)
Invisible-in-Canal (IIC)

Hearing Aids Handling & Storage

Some things to remember for proper hearing aid handling and storage are as follows: avoid heat, cold, chemicals, and, above all, moisture. Do not store your hearing aid near heat sources such as stoves, fireplaces or even in direct sunlight. Saunas, pools, showers, rain and even perspiration can potentially damage a device. If it does get wet, open it, and allow it to dry thoroughly.
