Starkey, Unitron, Lyric, Phonak, Rexton and the list of manufacturers we offer goes on. The hearing aid is only part of the hearing solution offered by our Audiology staff. Our focus is to help you work through the cloud of information that is available today on the internet and other providers who are not clear on what is best for you.
Basic digital hearing aids generally require the wearer to make some manual adjustments in certain listening environments such as turning a volume control up or down, or pushing a button to change listening programs. In contrast, a premium or more advanced hearing aid responds automatically to changes in the listener’s environment, making changes based on the signals being detected by the hearing aid. The hearing aid wearer is not required to make any manual changes. As the level of the technology increases in hearing aids, so do the availability of advanced features.
We also offer the world’s first and only 100% invisible hearing device at Centers for Hearing Care. A unique alternative that can be worn 24/7 for months at a time through daily activities like showering, exercising and sleeping. Find out more HERE.
