Modern hearing aids are true miracles of technology
Phonak hearing aids – flexible forms, colors and styles
Modern hearing aids offer a wide range of functions and variety. Your hearing care professional will help you make the choice that is perfect for you. They will consider your hearing needs, your budget, your lifestyle and your individual hearing preferences.
There are two basic types of hearing aids
Custom models (ITE or ITC and CIC models)
These models are made specifically to fit the shape of your ear canal for maximum benefit and the best possible comfort. They are available in many skin tones, are unobtrusive and very effective. The smallest versions sit in your ear canal and are virtually invisible. These models are suitable for mild to severe hearing loss.
Behind-the-ear models (CRT and BTE models)
BTE models are available for all degrees of hearing loss and, as the name suggests, can be worn comfortably behind the ear. Incoming signals are amplified and transmitted into the ear via very small, unobtrusive tubes. These models are available in many different colors, styles and designs.
