Choosing a hearing aid can feel like an overwhelming process for many people, especially when you look at the multitude of brand, style, and technology options available in today’s market. Our goal at New Leaf Hearing Clinic is to help guide you through the process of selecting the right hearing aid for your hearing loss, lifestyle, and budget. We are proud to be independently owned and operated because this allows us to recommend the best hearing aid option for each individual from the industry’s top manufacturers. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to hearing aids and we look forward to helping you find your unique hearing loss solution.
We work with a variety of the industry’s leading manufactures including: Phonak, Resound, Widex, Unitron, Siemens, Starkey, and Oticon.
Hearing aids come in a variety of style options, which will affect what the hearing aid looks like and what it feels like in your ear. The style can also have an influence on what the hearing aid sounds like because some hearing aid styles provide more amplification power than others. Also, some styles are more “open” feeling, meaning that they do not make the ear feel plugged up physically or acoustically.
Other factors that can also influence the best hearing aid style for an individual include: dexterity, wax production, occupation,perspiration, and battery life. We also carry several water resistant styles as well as options for people with a “dead” ear.
A hearing aid’s technology level will affect its sound quality and noise reduction capability. Any hearing aid style can be fit with any technology level. When choosing the right technology level for an individual the most important factor we consider is their degree of hearing loss. A person with a more severe hearing loss will usually benefit from more sophisticated technology, because the hearing aid has to make up for what their ear is no longer capable of doing—such as separating speech from background noise.
Our service and warranty packages are among the best in the industry.
