Hearing aids: the solution to hearing loss
Hearing loss can affect people of all ages, which can vary from mild to severe. In adults, the most common causes of hearing loss are noise and aging. Sometimes, we don’t even notice that our hearing has gotten worse until someone else notices it. If hearing loss is severe, it can become dangerous after the age of 50 if left untreated, because it can potentially lead to dementia and/or brain shrinkage. However, wearing hearing aids as soon as you notice the signs of a hearing difficulty can significantly slow down the progression of hearing loss and improve your overall quality of life. Therefore, it is important to speak to a hearing care professional and take action against hearing loss early on to avoid missing out on all that life has to offer.

Hearing aid design
Despite all the different styles and colors, you can choose between two main types of hearing aids: Behind-the-ear (BTE) and in-the-ear (ITE) hearing systems. In India, BTE hearing systems are more common.
ITE hearing aids: Invisible hearing relief
This type of device is one of the most discreet models available: Its position within the ear makes it almost invisible. These miniature hearing aids are best suited for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. Whether you can use an in-the-ear device or not depends on the amount of room in your auditory canal; it has to be large enough for the hearing aid to fit comfortably. Our Partner Provider will conduct a comprehensive hearing evaluation and go over the results with you in order to find the right hearing system.
BTE hearing aids: High-Performance and discreet
In their smallest form, they are about the size of a coffee bean and sit behind the ear. They feature a sound tube with a customized ear mold or external receiver (RIC) placed in the ear canal. BTEs are suitable for just about any kind of hearing loss – from mild to profound. Their impressive performance also features a discreet design and aesthetic appeal. BTE devices are available in various sizes and styles. Depending on the required battery strength, you can choose a mini or super-powered hearing aid.

Hearing aids help you recover sounds and voices that are almost completely inaudible, such as birds chirping, music playing, or children laughing. You will be able to enjoy conversations without having to ask people to repeat themselves. If you’re a big movie watcher, hearing aids eliminate the need for subtitles. In a nutshell: Hearing aids let you rediscover the world of sound. The large and highly visible sound amplifiers of the past are nothing like today’s devices.
