Which Hearing Aid Is Right For You?

Why Get Hearing Aids?

If you are like millions of Canadian adults today, you might be experiencing hearing loss and are looking for solutions. Using hearing aids can dramatically improve your hearing and give you a better quality of life. Permanent hearing loss can make people feel lonely, depressed, or as though they have lost independence. There might also be social and health consequences related to hearing loss, including embarrassment, fatigue, anxiety, depression and social isolation. Hearing aids can help you hear better and feel more connected to your family, friends, coworkers, and neighbours.

Hearing aid technology has come a long way in recent years. New models of hearing aids are more discreet, have more features, and can be worn for longer. Many hearing aids worn by people today are nearly invisible, tucked away in the ear canal. If you suspect you are suffering from hearing loss, book a hearing test today. A hearing test and consultation performed by your local hearing professional is the most reliable way to assess what, if any, action need to be taken.

What Type of Hearing Aid is Best
For Me?

The type of hearing aids that would be best for you depend on a few factors. The first, and most important step, is to determine your level of hearing loss which can range from mild to severe. While some hearing aid styles can help patients with all levels of hearing loss, others are designed to treat people on specific points of the hearing loss spectrum. Book a hearing test and consultation with one of our hearing professionals, to assess what, if any, action needs to be taken to address your hearing health needs.

After you get the results from your hearing tests, you will have to think about what plan to use your new hearing aid.

Discreet appearance vs features

While the stigma associated with hearing aids has virtually vanished, some people would still prefer to have invisible or barely visible hearing aids while others prefer outside the ear hearing aids with all the available features that come with a larger device.
