Choosing a hearing aid in Richmond

richmond skyline

Before selecting a hearing aid, make an appointment for a hearing test with a licensed audiologist in Richmond. These medical professionals can identify what type of hearing aid works best for you based on your lifestyle, level of hearing loss and desired features. Available hearing aid types include:

  • Behind-the-ear hearing aids: BTE hearing aids place the receiver behind the patient’s ear in a small plastic case attached to a small earpiece in the canal of the ear. As one of the most powerful hearing aid options, BTE hearing aids are good for those with moderate to severe hearing loss.
  • Receiver-in-canal hearing aids: RIC hearing aids are similar to BTE hearing aids. One important difference is that the receiver for a RIC hearing aid is inside of the canal instead of outside the ear. This means the outer portion of the RIC hearing aid is smaller. This type of hearing aid works well for those with mild to moderate hearing loss.
  • In-the-ear hearing aids: Patients with limited mobility or dexterity often find ITE hearing aids easy to use. This type of hearing aid is placed completely within the ear canal and works for those with mild to severe hearing loss.
  • Invisible-in-the-canal hearing aids: IIC hearing aids are custom fit to a patient’s ear. As the smallest hearing aids available, they require smaller batteries, which can be difficult for those with limited dexterity. IIC hearing aids are good for people with mild to moderate hearing loss.

When speaking with an audiologist, also mention the situations in which you have difficulty hearing. This helps them determine the features you need most. Hearing aids are available in a variety of models and with features like:

  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Wind noise reduction
  • Noise cancellation
  • Directional microphones
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Pre-programmable settings
  • Remote controls
