No two people are the same when it comes to need and preference. The same goes for when selecting the right hearing aid.
For many hearing aid users, visibility is an important factor. No matter if you choose a hearing aid that sits behind the ear or one that sits in the ear, modern hearing aids looks very different from the big, beige and whistling bananas you might remember your grandfather wearing. They are tiny sophisticated computers in an elegant and discreet casing.
Your hearing care professional will help you to make the right choice for you. After the hearing test, your hearing care professional will interview you about your needs, preferences and requirements when it comes to your hearing and your hearing aid. The purpose is to find the right hearing aid solution to match your lifestyle and what is most important to you. All this to give you the best possible hearing in all the many situations you face in your daily life.
