Styles of hearing devices

Your audiologist will work with you to determine which style of hearing aid is most appropriate for your hearing loss and listening and cosmetic needs. Each style of hearing aid is available in multiple levels of technology and will be programmed specifically for your hearing loss.

Lyric hearing devices

We are proud to be one of the select offices in the United States to offer Lyric Hearing to its patients. Lyric is an extended wear hearing device and is 100% invisible.  It  can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for up to 4 months at a time.

BTE - Behind The Ear hearing devices

Behind the ear instruments sit comfortably behind the ear and send sound into the ear canal through a tube or receiver (speaker). Some behind the ear instruments are “open fit” while others require a custom earmold.  Today's instruments are very discrete, come in a wide range of colors and the majority allow you to link wirelessly to your favorite devices (phone, tv, tablet, etc).

ITE - In the Ear hearing devices

In the ear (ITE) hearing devices are custom made to fit each patient’s ear by taking an impression of the ear canal and outer ear. The smallest in-the-ear devices can fit completely in the ear canal. Today's ITE devices come in all levels of technology and are digitally programmable allowing a completely custom solution to your hearing loss.

Single Sided deafness (SSD)

If you have lost all usable hearing in one ear, this may be referred to as single-sided deafness (SSD). One of the device systems available from The Hearing Center could be an appropriate solution. Having no usable hearing on one side reduces not only your ability to locate sounds, but also your ability to follow conversations in noisy environments. This combination can make everyday life quite challenging.

Our SSD systems are able to take sounds from your poorer side and send them to your better hearing ear. This helps you hear all the sounds around you and allows you to hear sounds from your poorer side without turning your head. You can enjoy and participate in conversations more easily with an SSD device, regardless of on which side the speaker is located. There are currently two ways we are able to send auditory information from the poorer side to the better hearing ear: wireless transmission and bone conduction. These options are described below.

The CROS/BICROS System

The CROS/BICROS system consists of two devices. The microphone/transmitter device is placed behind or inside your poorer ear and picks up sound. This device then transmits the sound wirelessly to the receiver on the normal or better hearing ear. If there is a hearing loss in your better ear, the receiver device may also be used as a hearing aid to improve your hearing while receiving the signal from your poorer ear. No surgery is required. The devices come in multiple colors and are very small and discrete.

Osseointegrated Device (Baha)

An Osseointegrated Device (commonly referred to as Baha) picks up sound waves in much the same way as a conventional hearing aid. However, instead of sending sounds through your ear canal, the device transforms them into sound vibrations and sends them, via the abutment and implant, through your skull directly to the better hearing ear. This is known as bone conduction. In order to use this device, an implant must be surgically placed. The procedure is a day-surgery, with no overnight stay. The implant and abutment are placed into the skull and, with time, will integrate into the bone. The implant is a permanent piece that allows the device to attach and transmit sound efficiently to your better ear. For more information visit: Implantable hearing devices
