Houston Hearing Aids
If you suffer from a hearing impairment, you’re not alone. Nearly 38 million Americans have some form of hearing loss. Hearing aids offer the opportunity for such patients to restore their hearing ability while causing minimal inconveniences to their daily routines.
Thanks to advancements in technology and in the health sector, hearing aids are now convenient to wear, affordably priced, and flexible to the needs of patients.
Memorial Hearing in Houston, Texas has been at the forefront of offering high-quality audiology products since 2009. We have assisted hundreds of patients in fine-tuning their hearing while offering great care and precision.
Benefits of Hearing Aids
Many people suffering from hearing loss will try to put off hearing aids because they feel like they will be a burden. This could not be further from the truth. These technological marvels can have a huge positive impact on the life of anyone who is suffering from even a small level of hearing loss. You should never let deficiencies in your hearing stand in the way of your relationships at work or when you are out with friends and family. The right hearing aid will fit seamlessly with both your lifestyle and your body allowing you to drastically improve your listening ability.
Adjusting to Hearing Aids
While Memorial Hearing will always strive to provide you with hearing aids that are easy to use, there will be an acclimation period if you are using them for the first time. New users of hearing aids will often be surprised by the different sounds which they have not heard in so long! Usually this is a welcome experience but new patients may also be startled by less desirable sounds such as the honking of car horns or the hum of electrical equipment. However, after a short period of time to get adjusted (usually one to four weeks), these sounds should no longer be a surprise as the body learns to recognize a heightened sense of hearing.
Hearing Aids Available at Our Houston Office
At Memorial Hearing, we design our products to suit the hearing needs of our patients. Towards this end, we have 2 main types of hearing aids available:
Behind the Ear Hearing Aids
Behind The Ear (BTE) hearing aids are designed with comfort in mind. They clog the ear much less and allow for a more natural hearing experience. At Memorial Hearing, we offer the following BTE products:
Receiver in The Ear (RITE) / Receiver in the Canal (RIC)
RITE/RIC models are designed with the receiver being placed inside the ear and the rest of the aid discreetly lying behind the ear itself. The receiver is attached to a thin wire that runs from the ear to the outside. When matched with hair or skin color, the receiver becomes quite discreet.
Mini BTE with Slim Tube
The Mini BTE has the entire hearing aid placed behind the air, with only a tube that amplifies the sound leading into the ear canal. They offer both a comfortable experience and a relief to issues such as chronic outer ear infections.
BTE with Ear Mold
For our patients who require more hearing aid power, the BTE with ear mold provides just that. The hearing aid attaches conveniently behind the ear and thick tubing runs from the hearing aid to the inside of the ear.
In the Ear Hearing Aids
For Houston patients who need hearing aids that are wholly placed-inside the ear, Memorial Hearing offers 4 different In The Ear (ITE) hearing aid products:
- Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC)
- In-the-Canal (ITC)
- Half-Shell in-The-Ear (HS ITE)
- Full-Shell in-the-Ear (ITE)
Some people prefer in-ear hearing aids because they are a bit more discreet versus the more conventional behind-the-ear hearing aids. Your audiologist will ensure that your hearing aids are custom made to exactly match the contours of your ears so that your hearing aids never bring more inconveniences to your life.
Adding a Touch of Technology
Hearing aids now incorporate technology in the form of smartphone integration. You can now connect your hearing aids to mobile applications that allow you to stream phone calls, listen to music, and enjoy conversations with more clarity, even in noisy areas. At Memorial Hearing, this advanced integration is available for both ITE and BTE hearing aids.
