Hearing aids for seniors come in a very wide range of styles and types.
While hearing loss can strike anyone of any age, it is much more common in the elderly due to the general degradation of hearing over time, as well as the accumulated damage due to exposure over time. Thankfully, hearing aids for seniors can help ensure that you’re able to hear everything, rejoin the conversation, and take control over your life once more. There are many different styles and types from which to choose, as well.
One of the most commonly used types of hearing aids for seniors is the in the ear (ITE) style. This is the type of hearing aid most people think of, as well. It sits in the outer ear, and is one of the most powerful options on the market, ideal for moderate to severe hearing loss.
Another good option is the ITC, or in the canal, hearing aid. They are just as powerful as ITE hearing aids but are somewhat smaller and less noticeable. Many users report that they are also more comfortable to wear, while offering very good sound amplification.
BTE, or behind the ear, hearing aids for seniors are also becoming more popular. These sit directly behind the ear, and sound is transmitted into the ear through a tube. BTE hearing aids are among the most powerful on the market in terms of battery life, as well as sound amplification, and can be used by those with “profound” hearing loss.
