There are a lot of different aspects to consider as you begin the hearing aid selection process. Today’s hearing aids are truly incredible digital devices, and they perform exponentially better than their analog predecessors. You can learn more about the types of hearing aids on our Hearing Aid Styles page. Read on to learn more about the important things to keep in mind as you choose your hearing aids.

Your Hearing Needs

Most types of hearing loss only work for certain severities, frequencies, and types of impairments, so it’s important to narrow down your options based on the hearing aid styles that work best for your individual needs. You should also consider any other factors that influence your ability to hear, such as whether or not you also suffer from tinnitus and how able you are to control and understand a hearing aid’s programming.

Your Cosmetic Preferences

It’s important to find a pair of hearing aids you or your child feels confident wearing. Most styles of hearing aids today are very sleek and subtle, but some people still want devices that are completely undetectable to others. On the other hand, many adults and children opt for fun colors and patterns for their hearing aids. Spend time talking to your audiologist to identify what you want and which styles will best meet your cosmetic needs.
