Not all hearing aid technology is the same

Devices are tiered by ability, price

There are several factors that you should consider when purchasing a hearing aid. These factors include:

  • Your lifestyle
  • Your age
  • Your hearing loss
  • Your budget
  • Your expectations

Above all else, you need to understand how a particular hearing instrument will fit your daily life. Most hearing aid professionals offer three different levels of technology to accommodate any budget, lifestyle and hearing loss.

Basic-tier hearing aids are ideal for those of us that maintain a quiet lifestyle. Patients that spend their days doing quiet activities at home, enjoy watching television, join in on casual conversations, and do not frequent noisy establishments with difficult listening situations would benefit from a basic- tier instrument.

Mid-tier hearing aids are good for individuals that lead a more active lifestyle. Mid-tier technology introduces more flexibility and automatic features into a hearing instrument. If you enjoy shopping, eating in restaurants, outdoor activities, and attending religious gatherings and meetings, the mid- tier options may be the best fit for you and your more active lifestyle.

Top-tier hearing aids are ideal for individuals that frequent demanding and difficult listening environments such as restaurants, social gatherings, music concerts and theaters. This is the most advanced hearing instrument technology available today and offers more programming flexibility and options as well as fully automatic features. If you lead an active life, these instruments will provide you with the advanced technology you need to have optimal hearing in a wide range of listening environments.
