Choosing A Hearing Aid
There are several different styles of hearing aid but it is important that your audiologist helps you to choose one that best meets your needs. In the ear hearing aids are generally not fitted as part of the NHS service and behind the ear hearing aids are usually fitted.
The technology inside all hearing aids tends to be much the same regardless of the size and shape of the aid. The size of hearing aids only really differs because of power requirements – the more severe the hearing loss, the larger the hearing aid may need to be in order to provide enough power. The style of the earpiece may also differ and this depends upon the level of hearing loss also as well as the size and shape of the ear and the individual requirements of the user. Your audiologist will be able to advise on which hearing aid and earpiece is most appropriate for you.
