What Is A Hearing Aid?

A hearing aid is a compact electronic device designed to enhance hearing. It is typically worn in or behind the ear and functions by amplifying sounds, making it easier for the wearer to listen in various environments. Hearing aids are useful tools for those who have difficulty hearing, helping them to communicate more effectively and enjoy a higher quality of life.

How Do Hearing Aids Work?

Hearing aids improve hearing through:

  • Microphone: Captures sound from the environment, converting it to digital signals.
  • Amplifier: Increases the strength of signals tailored to the user’s hearing loss.
  • Speaker: Converts amplified signals back into sound, directing it into the ear.

Advanced models differentiate important sounds from background noise and may offer wireless connectivity with devices for an enhanced hearing experience.

Types of Hearing Aids

At Hear Right Canada, we’re dedicated to enhancing your hearing with a variety of modern hearing aids designed for comfort, convenience, and clarity. Our selection is tailored to meet the needs of anyone experiencing hearing loss, ensuring you find a device that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle and budget, without the hassle of frequent adjustments.

Discover the diverse types of hearing aids we offer, each designed to suit different preferences and hearing needs:

  • Invisible-in-canal (IIC)
  • Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) or MicroCIC
  • In-the-canal (ITC)
  • In-the-ear (ITE)
  • Behind-the-ear (BTE)
  • Receiver-in-canal (RIC)

Invisible-in-canal (IIC)

These models are the ultimate in discreet hearing technology, suited for mild to moderate hearing loss. Positioned deep in the ear canal, they’re nearly invisible. Their key advantages are their minimal visibility and tailored fit for enhanced comfort and effectiveness.

  • The smallest and least visible type
  • Customized for the perfect fit

Completely-in-the-canal (CIC)


Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids are among the smallest options available, designed to fit snugly inside the ear canal. They offer a high level of discretion and are custom-molded to match the shape of your ear canal, providing:

  • A perfect, personalized fit.
  • An almost invisible appearance.

In-the-canal (ITC)

In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids are designed to fit within the ear canal, offering a compromise between the ultra-discreet Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) models and the more visible in-the-ear (ITE) or behind-the-ear (BTE) styles. While slightly larger than CIC aids, ITC models still provide:

  • A customized fit tailored to your ear canal.
  • A discreet appearance, less visible than many other types.

In-the-ear (ITE)

In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids are designed to fill the outer part of the ear, accommodating a broader spectrum of hearing loss compared to smaller models like the CIC or ITC. While they are more noticeable, their larger size offers significant benefits, making them:

  • Easier to adjust and handle.
  • Customized to ensure a perfect fit.
  • Suitable for a wide range of hearing loss levels.

Behind-the-ear (BTE)

Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are a widely chosen style, positioned behind the ear. They offer enhanced power, making them:

  • Easy to handle and adjust.
  • Equipped with tubing that directs sound into a custom earmold for a perfect fit.
  • Appropriate for all levels of hearing loss, including profound, providing a versatile solution.

Receiver-in-canal (RIC)

Receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids, also known as “receiver-in-the-ear,” are small devices positioned behind the ear. They are connected by a thin tube that channels sound straight into the ear, providing:

  • An open fit, with the receiver in the tube for enhanced comfort.
  • A more natural hearing experience, allowing for clearer sound transmission.

Cleaning

Maintaining your hearing device is key to its longevity and performance. Cleaning may appear straightforward, but remember, various models need distinct care methods and attention due to their design and how they’re worn. For instance, in-the-canal devices often encounter ear wax more directly, necessitating more regular cleaning.

To correctly care for your device, always refer to and adhere to the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions. This practice ensures your hearing aid functions optimally, allowing you to experience its benefits for many years.

Charging batteries

Many contemporary models are equipped with lightweight, lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, offering the convenience of low maintenance and the ability to use them for extended periods after just a short charge.

Similar to charging your mobile phone, these hearing aids can be recharged using a special charger during periods of non-use, such as overnight.

While some models still use disposable batteries, consulting with a hearing care professional on the right battery type and quality for your specific hearing aid can significantly enhance the device’s longevity.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions about hearing aids

Here are several questions Hear Right frequently receives from patients with hearing loss all over the country, and we’ll be addressing each of them with our hearing experts’ insights.

You can schedule an appointment with us if you have a question not covered here. Remember, this commitment is cost-free.

In any case, we’ll ensure you get the answers you need and help you find a hearing support solution you feel comfortable with.

Signs that you may be experiencing hearing loss may start with having trouble understanding conversations and people sound like they are mumbling. But you may notice other early warning signs that may be related to hearing loss, like:

 

  • Frequently asking people to repeat what they have just said
  • Preferring the TV louder than most people do
  • Have difficulty understanding when listening to other people on the phone or when you cannot see their faces
  • Finding yourself more impatient, irritable, frustrated, or withdrawn than before

 

However, hearing aids can help you amplify and separate sounds. At Hear Right Canada, we can evaluate the extent of your hearing loss and help you find the solution that better fits your hearing needs and budget.

Although hearing aids cannot cure hearing loss, they can help make communication more accessible by making most sounds available to you again. They are designed to maximize hearing potential and improve your quality of life.

 

However, adjusting to hearing aids’ amplification requires time and patience because you will be retraining your brain to interpret sounds again, to focus on some, and to filter others out, as you did before when your hearing was normal.

 

Hearing aids can last three to five years but can last even longer for some people. Some of the variables affecting this lifespan include:

 

  • the quality of the materials of the hearing instrument
  • how well it’s maintained and frequency
  • how much wear and tear it experiences
  • how hearing aids are stored.

 

As you can see, hearing aid durability is impacted by various factors, but Hear Right Canada can help you make your hearing aid last as long as possible.

Modern hearing aid models come with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are usually recharged when the hearing aids are not in use, at night, for example. Current technology allows rechargeable batteries In- the -Ear and Behind-the-Ear styles of hearing aids.

 

In-the-canal (ITC) and Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC), for example, do require different types of non-rechargeable batteries, with varying spans of durability.

Hearing aids should be worn through your waking hours, even if you’re at home or not engaged in any activity, except for particular activities such as showering or swimming.

 

Wearing them while you are awake helps you keep your hearing and brain sharp, and the only time you should be removing your hearing aids is for sleeping and any in-water activities.

Whenever hearing aids are not well adjusted to your ear canal, or if the model chosen is not the right one for your condition, you’ll be more likely to feel some of the following side effects:

 

  • Soreness in the ear canal
  • Excessive feedback

 

This is why it is so important that trusted hearing care professionals perform your hearing loss evaluation.

Adjusting your brain to hearing aids’ amplification requires time and patience because you will be retraining your brain to interpret sounds again, focus on some and filter others out, as you did before when your hearing was normal. It usually takes about 30 days.

Depending on the brand and the level of technology, the price of hearing aids may vary between $3000.00 to $900.00 for each device. 

 

Find out about hearing aid prices, what is included in the cost, and how an investment in better hearing can change your life. Always ask your hearing care professional what is included in the price of the hearing aids, so you fully understand what you are purchasing.

At Hear Right Canada, we give you prices and a commitment-free evaluation.

At Hear Right Canada, with the help of one of our hearing care professionals, we can bring real expertise in choosing the hearing aid best suited to your level of hearing loss, your lifestyle, your needs, and your budget.

 

Generally, hearing aids fall within three categories:

 

  • In the canal (ITC) – in the opening of the ear canal. They tend not to have as much amplification power as the other devices, meaning they’re mainly used for mild to moderate hearing loss.
  • In the ear (ITE) – in the outer bowl, typically work best for people with mild to severe hearing loss. They are slightly larger and have longer battery life than ITC hearing aids but are not suited to people with manual dexterity issues.
  • Behind-the-ear (BTE) – behind the ear and often boasts a tiny tube connecting to the canal. They tend to offer the best noise amplification ranges.

With so many different hearing aid brands in the market, it’s only natural that you feel overwhelmed and do not know where to start. While it’s true that some brands are better than others, your choice should also be based on the type of hearing loss you have. At Hear Right Canada, our hearing care professionals  work with the top hearing aid manufacturers, not just one brand at Hear Right Canada. So, you’ll have many options, whatever suits your hearing needs and best interests.

 

These eight brands are considered the top Manufacturers in the hearing industry:

  • Oticon
  • Unitron
  • Resound
  • Signia
  • Widex
  • Starkey
  • Phonak
  • Bernafon

Taking care of your hearing aids is essential to ensure they work effectively and last a long time.

It begins with following the manufacturer's instructions on how to use and maintain them. It is recommended that you learn how to clean them properly yourself, while also seeking routine maintenance from a trusted hearing care professional.

With careful attention and proper care, your hearing aids will continue to provide you with the best possible listening experience.

What is at stake is your quality of life; therefore, you’ll want a hearing device that:

  • helps with your specific type of hearing loss
  • fits your lifestyle
  • matches your budget
  • is comfortable to wear

In any case, always consider the advice of hearing care professionals at Hear Right first. We can help you choose the right hearing aid by:

  • Having a hearing test first
  • Finding the right type of hearing aid and price ranges

Inform you about special features you may need or not, like background noise filtering, smartphone connectivity, battery rechargeability, comfort, among others.

Most hearing aids on the market are moisture-resistant but not waterproof. As a result, they are not designed to be worn in the shower or swimming pool and shouldn’t be submerged in water.

Therefore, while swimming or showering, it is advisable to remove your hearing aids and store them in a safe, dry place or waterproof container.

We can help you determine if your hearing aids are covered under your private insurance plan.

However, there are programs available that have coverage for hearing aids. At Hear Right Canada, we can help you identify these programs to ensure you can get some help to cover the cost of the initial purchase and replacement hearing aids.
