Tips in Selecting a Hearing Aid

It should go without saying that selecting a good hearing aid is an incredibly important healthcare decision. Coastal Hearing Care wants to make sure you make the most informed choices when you do so.

Please consider these tips for selecting a hearing aid that’s right for you.

Hearing Aid Selection Tips

Lifestyle Factors

Some hearing aids are more conducive to certain lifestyle conditions. Do you like to swim a lot? How much high-volume exposure do you experience (i.e., movie theaters, loud music, church services, restaurants, etc.)? Begin with notifying your audiologist of these considerations and proceed from there.

Hearing Aid Styles

Coastal Hearing Care offers several hearing aid types that accommodate a variety of conditions and lifestyle factors. They include behind-the-ear hearing aids, completely-in-the-canal, in-the-canal, in-the-ear, receiver-in-canal, single-sided-hearing, and more. With so many advancements in audiology technology, you have more variety than ever.

Other Styles: We also have the cutting-edge Livio Edge AI, which uses artificial intelligence to improve speech recognition capabilities. You can even get digital hearing aids as well as hearing aids that fit more comfortably with facemasks.

Hearing Aid Accessories

Hearing aids come with an array of convenient accessories that help their performance. It’s possible to configure your hearing aid with other electronic devices like your TV, phone, computer, microphone, and several other wireless accessories. Our hearing aids are compatible with several Apple and Android applications, allowing you to take advantage of cell phone technology frequently.

Don’t forget to invest in a solid hearing aid charger too. Nothing is worse than a good hearing aid that stops with a low battery.

Consult Your Audiologist for Suggestions

You should definitely get some good input from your ear doctor as well. Coastal Hearing Care commits its entire mission to help patients restore their hearing.
