Hearing Aid Technology
Hearing aid technology has advanced immensely in recent years. Hearing aids are now digital and fully automatic. There are even Bluetooth hearing aids that can be connected directly to your smartphone. At our family hearing aid center, we carry the latest hearing aids in any level of technology. From hearing aids with a tinnitus masking feature to rechargeable devices, we have a hearing aid for everyone.
Just as every person is different, so is every hearing loss. Our hearing specialists have experience in the different programming for each hearing aid manufacturer and can recommend a device that will meet your unique needs. Finding the right hearing aid for your needs depends on two main factors: your degree of hearing loss and your lifestyle. Some hearing aids are better suited for milder hearing losses while others are designed for severe losses. Your lifestyle is also important to consider. If you live an active and busy lifestyle, then you will need a hearing aid that will provide you with better hearing in a number of complex listening environments.
No matter what your hearing needs are, the team at Palmetto Family Hearing Center can help you.
Styles of Hearing Aids
We carry all styles of hearing aids, including the following:
RIC hearing aids are reliable and convenient. These have a lightweight feel to them and a flexible fit.
BTE hearing aids put you in control with customizable fit options, wireless connectivity, and easy volume control.
CIC hearing aids are sleek and subtle. This technology is molded to the unique contours of your ear for a superior fit that offers a natural look and hearing experience.
ITC hearing aids are discreet and have a glasses-friendly fit with external controls.
ITE hearing aids are custom molded for you. They are powerful and comfortable, allowing for all-day use.
IIC hearing aids are the smallest hearing instrument available. These are for people who want ultimate discretion while benefiting from the natural acoustics of the external ear.
Open BTE are behind-the-ear devices that have an open fit. This type of hearing aid provides amplification via a small tube inserted into the ear canal.
Remote hearing aids feature Bluetooth capabilities and can be connected directly to your smartphone. With remote hearing aids we can provide adjustments to your hearing prescription remotely, so you don’t have to leave your home.
Our Hearing Aids vs OTC
Over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids can now be found at big box stores. OTC hearing aids are not the same as prescription hearing aids. OTC hearing aids are simple amplification devices, designed to make everything louder. Similar to reading glasses, OTC hearing aids are not programmed or fit to your specific needs, they are a one-size fits all option.
At Palmetto Family Hearing Center, our medical training, use of real ear verification, and advanced technology sets us apart from big box stores. When you visit us, you will receive personalized care and follow-up appointments. The hearing aids we carry are FDA approved and feature the latest advancements. We offer hearing aids at every price point, and we are confident we have a device that can help you. The hearing aids we carry are only available through a qualified hearing healthcare provider. Our devices cannot be purchased at a retailer or drug store.
If you are experiencing difficulty with your hearing, please contact us. We can evaluate your hearing, help you understand your hearing loss, and work with you to find a device that will allow you to reconnect with your loved ones again.
Lyric hearing aids are unlike any other hearing aid on the market. These are a completely invisible, hassle-free option that we place directly in your ear canal. For two months at a time, you can forget your Lyric hearing aids are even in your ears because you won’t have to take them out to clean them or change a battery. At the end of that two months, you will come back to our office and we’ll replace your hearing aids with another set. Lyric hearing aids aren’t suitable for every hearing loss, but many people have found them to be a life-changer.
