Hearing Aid Style Guide from Audiology Associates of Deerfield of Deerfield IL

Hearing aids can be hard to research because of the extensive amount of new vocabulary and abbreviations used to refer to them. It is especially tough for the first time hearing aid buyer. Audiology Associates of Deerfield hopes that the quick reference list of standard hearing aid styles and terminology recently added to their internet site will help Deerfield residents better appreciate their hearing aid options.

The list contains fundamental information on the most common hearing aid types among them:

Invisible in Canal (IIC)
Completely in Canal (CIC)
In the Canal (ITC)
In the Ear (ITE)
Behind the Ear (BTE)
Open Ear / Open Fit
Receiver In the Ear (RIE or RITE)

When all the hearing aid models are written side by side, it really is easy to see the reason why buyers have a hard time differentiating them. Many of the names and acronyms are very similar. Audiology Associates of Deerfield hopes that the quick reference guide will help clarify some of the essential differences between the many styles of hearing aids. While noting that online research is an important step in selecting the ideal hearing aid, Audiologists would caution potential buyers that there is a lot of additional information to be obtained by consulting with a hearing care expert. A hearing care specialist can deliver advice about which hearing aid styles are suitable for an individual after learning more about each person's activities and lifestyle and where the hearing aid will be worn most frequently.
