Discreet and Smart Design
This is our most popular style for our clientele. They have been designed specifically for people who are still able to hear fairly well but have trouble hearing clearly certain people or when there’s background noise. They’re a perfect match for the type of hearing loss we specialize in.
They are very comfortable and discreet.
The speaker (receiver) of the hearing aid is held in position in your ear canal by a soft, durable silicone tip. A thin wire runs discreetly up and out of your ear to the tiny hearing aid hidden behind your ear.
Open fit hearing aids fit comfortably in your ear and leave the canal open to the air so your ears don’t feel plugged. If you want to experience this plugged sound for yourself, then place your fingers in your ears and start talking… doesn’t sound too good, does it?
When we leave the ear canal open, this sound is eliminated. In fact, the only sounds you will hear are the frequencies that are normally hard to hear, allowing for a natural and clear sound.
Most fittings can take place on the same day as you are tested and there is no need for impressions or lengthy waiting period to endure.
Your ear canal is a warm, humid, and sticky environment. And, that can be hard on a delicate electronic instrument like a hearing aid.
A custom hearing aid in your ear is exposed to these elements day in and day out. When wax gets inside the hearing aid the function of the aid is severely impaired. Over a long period of time if the wax is not removed it can cause costly repair or even the need to replace the unit completely.
The difference with the Open Fit Hearing Aid system is that the instrument is fitted outside of the ear, in fact right behind it, well away from any wax.
This method means that no wax or moisture can get anywhere near the body of the hearing aid. Servicing and repairs of the Open Fit Hearing Aid will only need to done on very rare occasions. Most repairs that are needed can be done easily and quickly right in the office and it will be far less expensive than the cost of repairing traditional hearing aid devices.
