Hearing Aid

Are you interested in hearing instruments?

As the kind and degree of hearing loss varies from person to person, there are different hearing instrument models which are tailored to specific hearing losses and which take into account personal needs.

Hearing instruments improve speech understanding in various situations and support the many functions of the human hearing (location of sounds, enjoyment of music, …).

As the kind and degree of hearing loss varies from person to person and even sometimes from ear to ear, there are different hearing instrument models which are tailored to specific hearing losses and which take into account personal needs.

Hearing instruments are distinguished by design and technology.

Design

 
Hearing Aid In-The-Ear model (ITE): The unobtrusive hearing instruments that are worn in the ear. Aesthetically pleasing, they cover hearing losses from mild to medium. The smallest ITE-models are called CIC (Completely-in-Canal), they can be worn completely in the canal and are therefore hardly visible.
 

In-the-Ear Models (Example: Valeo)

Half Shell (ITC)
Hearing Aid
Full Shell (ITE)
 
 
 
 
Hearing Aid Behind-The-Ear model (BTE): The versatile and powerful hearing instruments that are worn behind the ear. They can be employed for all degrees of hearing losses and are particularly beneficial for severe hearing losses and special requirements regarding hearing in difficult listening situations (FM systems etc.)
 
 
Technology

Digital
: Microprocessors (digital signal processing) guarantee highest signal processing and fitting flexibility in addition to providing maximum speech understanding. Individual preferences and needs can be taken into account. Individual and sophisticated.

Digitally programmable
: Analog technology, which is programmed via Software (PC) for the best possible adaptation of the conventional signal processing to the hearing loss. Economic and effective.

Analog
: Conventional technology for all degrees of hearing loss. The fitting is performed with control elements directly on the hearing instrument. Well-priced and proven technology.
