Styles of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. We carry the following styles of hearing aids at all four of our offices:
Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) hearing aids are reliable and convenient. These have a lightweight feel to them and a flexible fit.
Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids put you in control with customizable fit options, wireless connectivity, and easy volume control.
Completely-in-Canal (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.
In-the-Canal (ITC) hearing aids are discreet and have a glasses-friendly fit with external controls.
In-the-Ear (ITE) hearing aids are custom molded for you. They are powerful and comfortable, allowing for all-day use.
Invisible-In-the-Canal (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.
Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids
For severe hearing losses, sometimes hearing aids aren’t enough. That’s why we offer bone-anchored hearing systems, which may be a more suitable option depending on your hearing needs. Bone-anchored hearing aids are surgically implanted and designed to help people who have outer or middle are problems, but a functioning cochlea.
If you think a bone-anchored hearing aid could benefit you, please contact us.
Finding the Right Hearing Aids
Hearing aids are not a one size fits all solution. Just as every hearing loss is different, there are many types of hearing aids that are better suited for different needs. During your audiological examination, we will work with you to determine what kind of hearing aid will best suit you and your hearing needs.
Today’s hearing aids are incredibly advanced and come with a range of features. From Bluetooth hearing aids to rechargeable devices, there are new advancements in the technology that make hearing aids smarter and more efficient than ever. Depending on your hearing needs and activity level, we will recommend a device that will match all your needs.

Your Hearing Matters
Sounds like laughing, a cheering crowd, or even a simple conversation with a loved one helps shape our lives, adding richness to all our experiences. They keep us connected to each other, and aware of what’s going on around us.

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.
