Did you know?
Hearing aids keep getting smaller and more technologically advanced. Some styles are virtually invisible, very discrete. They're also more ergonomic - and a better fit means better hearing! - and come in a range of styles, types and technology levels.
What are hearing aids?
A hearing aid is a battery-powered electronic device that is worn in the ear or behind the ear. Today's hearing aids offer highly advanced technology with sophisticated features. They do more than amplify sound: highlighting speech in noisy environments and reducing the discomfort of unwanted background noise.
Your Audiologist programs the devices to amplify specific sounds (tailored to your hearing loss and lifestyle) to help you achieve the richest hearing possible. Hearing aids are incredibly easy to use with most being fully automatic and not requiring any adjustments after you put them on. Some can also connect wirelessly to your smartphones, TVs and more.
Choosing the right hearing solution can be overwhelming.
At Hear Better, we have access to the latest hearing technologies from several hearing manufacturer suppliers. We work with a manufacturer based on the quality, performance, and technology of their products. Our approach also pays equal attention to design, style, comfort, ease of use and features.
Our expert audiologists can help you choose the hearing solution that is right for you. We will explain the possible options and help you to make an informed decision about the best hearing solution for you. We take into consideration your hearing loss, lifestyle, cosmetic preferences, your ability to manage the device and your budget.
Types of hearing aids?
- Canal aids ﬁt completely in the ear canal and are incredibly discrete. They are custom made to ﬁt each individual’s ear canal.
- In-the-canal aids ﬁt inside the ear canal and are partially visible, sitting up in the ‘bowl’ of the ear. Again, they are custom ﬁt and easy to manage.
- Ultra-small Behind-the-ear (BTE) and Receiver-in-the canal (RIC) aids are a subtle option that oﬀers superior sound quality. A small clear tube or wire links the earmould or hidden receiver in the ear canal to the small lightweight BTE hearing aid that sits discretely & comfortably behind the ear.
Hearing aid fitting
Your hearing devices are designed with you in mind. Ergonomically ﬁtted to your ear canal and programmed to meet your unique needs, our hearing aids provide you with optimal speech clarity and comfort.
Our audiologists perform real-ear measurements and speech testing to verify that the ﬁtting and prescription of your hearing aids are working perfectly.
We also perform a sound check and ﬁne-tune the settings of your device to match your personal preferences.
Hearing aid after care & support
At Hear Better, we know hearing care involves more than simply purchasing a hearing aid. It takes some time to get used to how the world sounds through hearing aids and to adjust to how they feel in your ear. We can help you to become conﬁdent handling and managing your devices.
- We demonstrate how to use and care for your new hearing aids and send you home with written instructions and a diary log to help you maintain them.
- Two weeks after your ﬁtting appointment, we will schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your progress, adjust the sound (if required), and address any of your questions or concerns.
- We stay in touch throughout your hearing journey, scheduling annual hearing check-ups, performing hearing aid adjustments, and helping you with replacement batteries.
