Types Of Hearing Aid Devices

There are many styles of British Columbia hearing aids. Factors that determine the style of hearing aid the individual client chooses will depend on the degree of the hearing loss, power and options requirements of the hearing aids in question, one’s manual dexterity abilities and cosmetic concerns. Finding the best hearing aid for you is imperative. With a wide range of types and styles out there, you deserve the best options you can find.

One Versus Two Hearing Aids
If you have good hearing in one ear and hearing loss in the other, then one hearing aid is the best option. On the other hand, hearing loss often occurs in both ears. Binaural (two-ear) hearing devices can restore a “stereo” type of sound. They also help listeners in circumstances of high background noise. It used to be that people with hearing loss in both ears were provided with one hearing aid. This would be similar to wearing one lens with vision problems in both eyes. We have two eyes in order to see depth. With one eye we actually see as flat as a post card. If you cover one eye you might still think you see depth, but that’s only your brain fooling you for the moment. In reality, if you were tested for depth perception, you would not see much with one eye. We have two ears to tell the direction of sounds.

It’s not as simple as saying that the right ear hears from the right and the left hears from the left. The truth of it all is much more beautiful and fascinating than that. Consider that sound travels over 1000 km/hr. Now think about the width of one’s head separating the ears one from another. Now if you are facing some direction and someone speaks to you from your right hand side, sound will reach your right ear a split second before it gets to your left ear. The sound will also be very slightly louder for your right ear compared to your left ear. It’s these tiny time and volume differences between your ears that tell you what direction a sound is coming from. It’s a truly amazing fact about the wonderful sense of hearing! Needless to say, two ears are better than one.

Instrument Appearance (How Different Can Hearing Aids Be?)
Hearing aid choice is a personal decision, but be sure to connect with a professional while you’re deciding. There’s no sense in settling for anything other than the best when it comes to your hearing. Learn the different styles of hearing aids, such as the all-in-the-ear and behind-the-ear styles. There are numerous types and sizes to choose from. The choice is up to you. You can go with a device that is tucked behind the ear or the device that fits right inside the canal. The important thing is that you’re hearing is improved.

The physical size and shape of your own ear canal will also make a difference as to what style of hearing aid will work best for you. If you have trouble using your fingers or grasping small objects then a smaller hearing aid will be harder to operate and remove from your ear. You may be better off with a larger model. Find out which style suits you best.
