Hearing Aids

Hearing aids

Hearing aids are sophisticated, state-of-the-art devices that amplify and deliver sound to the brain.

These tiny electronic devices are jam-packed with sophisticated technology, wireless options, and fast processing chips. Like the natural process of hearing, hearing aids are designed to pick up and receive sound, amplify these sounds, and convert them into a more precise signal to be registered by our brains.

Because hearing loss is a medical condition, hearing aids require proper fitting for the wearer to experience its benefits.

Our team at Digital Hearing Lab is here to help you choose hearing aids that are right for your hearing needs, the environments you often find yourself in, and your lifestyle and budget. We fit, adjust, and program hearing devices to ensure our patients get the most out of them.

Hearing Aid Styles

All hearing aids consist of the same parts, but how they are designed and worn differs depending on the style. For example, hearing aids consist of a microphone, amplifier, battery unit, processing system, volume/program control, and ear mold.
Invisible-in-Canal Hearing aids


Aptly named, these devices are entirely invisible. IIC hearing aids are contained in a tiny enclosed unit that sits deep in the ear canal, hence its lack of visibility.
Completely-in-Canal Hearing aids


Slightly larger than IIC devices, CIC hearing aids sit in the ear canal but may be visible.
In-the-Canal Hearing aids


Any hearing aids that are worn in the ear canal may not be as low visibility as its smaller, more discreet options, such as in-the-canal, completely-in-canal, and invisible-in-canal hearing aids. These are inserted deeper in the ear canal and are not noticeable.
In-the-Ear Hearing aids


ITE hearing aids include full-shell and half-shell models, which sit on the ear's surface. ITE hearing aids tend to treat lower levels of hearing loss. While discreet, they may be difficult to control if the wearer experiences dexterity issues.
Receiver-in-canal Hearing aids


RIC hearing aids are similar to BTE hearing aids in appearance but differ in that the receiver is situated in the ear canal.
Behind-the-Ear Hearing aids


BTE hearing aids consist of two main parts: a plastic case housing electronic components worn over the ear and ear molds sitting within the ear and receiving sound. BTE hearing aids are often relatively small and powerful, treating varying degrees of hearing loss, but may be inconvenient for people who wear eyeglasses.

Hearing Aid Features & Technology

Hearing aids are designed with features that address needs specific to the different degrees of hearing loss. Depending on your degree of hearing loss and your hearing needs, our specialists will match you with hearing aids that provide seamless sound access. At Digital Hearing Lab, we are determined to help you find the best treatment for your hearing needs. Based on our consultations, we determine the features and style of hearing aid that fits you best.

Most hearing aids available are now digital instead of analog in older hearing aids. All sound signals picked up by digital hearing aids are converted into digital information, which is processed at incredibly fast speeds before delivering the sounds you hear. Hearing aid processors range from basic to advanced in terms of technology level.

Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Rechargeable hearing aids use lithium-ion batteries, which allow them to be recharged quickly and hold power for long periods. Many rechargeable hearing aids require an overnight recharge in an accompanying unit. Rechargeable hearing aids do not require battery replacement, often for the life of the hearing aid, which has become preferable to wearers in terms of waste reduction and savings.
Hearing Aid Batteries

Hearing Aid Batteries

The majority of hearing aids use disposable zinc-air batteries as a power source. Zinc-air batteries most commonly used are sizes 675, 13, 312, and 10. With newer features requiring more power, hearing aid users may find they are replacing batteries more often than older models.
Binaural Hearing Aids

Binaural Hearing Aids

Most forms of hearing loss are bilateral, meaning it affects both ears. We recommend a pair of hearing aids in most cases unless single-sided hearing loss is detected. Wearing binaural hearing aids will help:
  • Improve your ability to hear in noisy settings
  • Determine where sounds are coming from
  • Improve your ability to understand speech
  • Give access to a broader range of volumes, from quiet to loud.
