The Modern Hearing Aid

Grimsby Lincoln News

Lincoln Hearing Clinic offers you the latest in hearing aids to ensure you receive the best possible service when it comes to hearing loss.

The bionic hearing device Steve Austin a.k.a. the 6 Million Dollar Man was fitted with in 1974 has yet to make it to market, but today’s technology is almost as impressive.

Hearing aids are divided into three main types: BTEs (those that fit Behind-The-Ear), ITEs (those that fit In-The-Ear) and RITE (a combination of BTE and ITE). BTE hearing aids sit behind the ear and use a separate piece called an ear mold or a thin sound tube with a soft silicone earpiece to direct sound into the ear canal. ITE hearing aids come in several subcategories. The size and shape of your ear and your degree of hearing loss will determine which style and size of ITE aid is best for you. RITE (Receiver-In-The-Ear) hearing aids are a hybrid type where the main components of the system sit behind the ear and the receiver (speaker) sits in the ear canal.

The latest technological leap is thanks to Bluetooth which essentially turns these unique hearing aids into actual wireless headsets, allowing those with hearing loss to talk on their cell phones with ease. Hearing aid systems with Bluetooth wireless capabilities allow users to not only talk on their cell phones easily and without feedback, but also to listen to Bluetooth enabled MP3 devices, televisions and more. With such advancements in hearing aids, it’s more important than ever to be aware of the options.
