We carry hearing aids from the leading manufacturers.

Hearing Aids at Hometown Hearing

The technology inside of hearing aids has advanced immensely over the years. Now, hearing aids are incredibly smart and have features such as Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeability, and automatic functioning. Many of today’s hearing aids are also incredibly small in size and some are even considered to be “invisible.”

At Hometown Hearing, we are knowledgeable about every make and model of hearing aid. Our hearing instrument specialist stays up-to-date with the latest technology and programs so he can provide you with the expert hearing care you deserve. From hearing aids you can control with an app on your smartphone to devices with a tinnitus masking feature, we have hearing solution for everyone.

Because we are a completely independent practice, we are able to carry hearing aids from the leading manufacturers; including EarQ, Oticon, ReSound, Signia, Starkey, and Widex.

Hearing Aid Technology

Today’s hearing aids are minicomputers, designed to provide you with the sounds you need to keep your brain active and healthy. At Hometown Hearing, we carry a wide range of hearing aids in different styles and models. Some of the hearing aids we carry have advanced technology that makes them “smart hearing aids.” The smart hearing aids we carry range from Bluetooth connective to rechargeable.

Hearing aids with Bluetooth connectivity allow you to connect your hearing aids to your favorite devices, such as your smartphone or TV. With Bluetooth connectivity, you can stream phone calls, music, and TV audio directly to your hearing aids without the use of an intermediary device. Bluetooth hearing aids are a great option for those who like to listen to music or spend a lot of time talking on the phone.

We also carry a variety of rechargeable hearing aids. With rechargeable hearing aids you no longer have to worry about changing your hearing aid batteries every few days or be afraid that your battery is going to die at an unexpected time. With rechargeable hearing aids you simply place them on their charging station at night, similar to how you charge your phone, and the next morning when you wake up, you’ll have fully charged devices!

Hearing aid technology is constantly changing. We keep up with the latest advancements in hearing aid technology so we can expertly help our patients. If you are interested in some of the hearing aid technology we carry, or you would like to make an appointment to try hearing aids for yourself, call us today.

How We Choose the Right Hearing Aid for You

There are many types and styles of hearing aids available on the market today. Without the right professional to guide you, it can be confusing trying to choose the right hearing aid. At Hometown Hearing, we will be with you through your entire hearing journey. We are experts in hearing aid technology and are familiar with every make and model of hearing aids. We will help you choose a device that will allow you to hear all of the sounds you want and will improve your communication and cognitive abilities.

When recommending hearing aids, there are a few factors we consider. First, we will look at the degree of your hearing loss. Hearing loss varies from mild to severe. Your degree of hearing loss is an important factor in determining what type of hearing aid will best help you hear better. Then we will discuss with you what your hearing needs are. If you live an active and busy lifestyle and it is important to you to be able to hear in a meeting or in a crowded environment, then we will recommend a hearing aid with a higher level of technology. More powerful hearing aids are needed for more severe cases of hearing loss as well as for people who spend their time in noisy environments.

After determining your degree of hearing loss and your needs, then we will look at your cognitive abilities. When left untreated, hearing loss can have a negative affect on your cognitive functioning. After a conversation with you we will determine together if you need a more powerful hearing aid to help with your cognitive processing. Finally, we will go over your individual needs. Your dexterity, mobility, and eyesight are all important factors when considering what type of hearing aid will work best for you. We will help you choose the right hearing aid that will allow you to not only hear better, but that helps you feel your best again.
