Are you looking for the ideal hearing aid? With thousands of hearing aids out there, it may be a bit overwhelming and tiring to find the perfect one. So, how do you come up with the right hearing aid for you?
Start from yourself. What are your requirements? By this, we mean, medical-wise and fashion-wise. Is your hearing loss problem mild, moderate, or severe? Are you worried about how a certain hearing aid will look on you?
There are different types of hearing aids to choose from. You can have BTE (behind-the-ear), ITE (in-the-canal), completely-in-the-canal (CIC), etc. Each type of hearing aid comes with different functions and style.
Below is a short list of hearing aids that we recommend. Of course, it is still best to consult your doctor before trying any hearing aid.
The Bionic Hearing Aid
The Lee Major’s Rechargeable Bionic Hearing Aid is an in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid that is popularized by the actor Lee Majors. Most probably, you have seen its commercial on TV.
The great feature of this hearing aid device is the fact that it is a small and discreet ITE type of hearing aid. This means that it is almost invisible to an ordinary bystander which is good news for those who are fashion conscious or those who avoid the embarrassment of having a physical deficiency. Its less than $500 price range is also very achievable most especially for those who don’t have medical insurance.
Technical-wise, the Bionic Hearing Aid is an ideal hearing aid. Its rechargeable capacity is perfect for frequent travelers. It comes with a recharging case which you can plug anywhere. If you don’t have a socket, you can charge your hearing aid using size AAA batteries.
The Acoustitone PRO by MDHearing Aid
The MDHearingAid Acoustitone PRO Hearing Aid is one of the brand’s lines of BTE hearing aids. With less than $400, you can have a doctor-designed professional hearing aid that is comparable to those hearing aids costing $600 or more.
With up to 45db of gain, the Acoustitone PRO more than satisfies your needs for better sound quality. This audiologist-tested and doctor-recommended aid is designed for mild, moderate and severe hearing loss. Its best feature is its 2-channel tone control toggle switch which edits the sound transmitted and customizes it to the level of hearing loss of the wearer. Users will love its discreet and modern appearance which is almost invisible when worn.
The MDHearing Aid Acoustitone PRO comes with various sized clear ear domes/tips to fit most adult ears. It uses size 13 batteries which are sold in most drug stores.
