The guide to hearing aid alternatives will help to make it more convenient for Columbus-area residents to understand the terminology and acronyms commonly used to refer to different hearing aid styles.

Investigating hearing aids can be challenging for the novice shopper because there are so many different styles and numerous different abbreviations used to refer to them. Hearing Health Solutions hopes that the quick reference list of popular hearing aid designs and terminology recently added to their website will help Columbus residents better appreciate their hearing aid choices.

The guide to hearing aid styles contains basic information on the most popular hearing aid types including:
Behind the Ear (BTE)
Completely in Canal (CIC)
Deep Canal (DC)
Extended Wear Hearing Aids
In the Ear (ITE)
In the Canal (ITC)
Invisible in Canal (IIC)
Open Ear / Open Fit
Receiver In the Ear (RIE or RITE)

A side-by-side listing of all the major hearing aid variations quickly demonstrates why buyers often have trouble making sense of the similar names and acronyms. The quick reference guide created by Hearing Health Solutions is one step in the right direction toward clearing up some of that confusion. While noting that independent research is an important part in selecting the best hearing aid, Hearing Aid Dispensers would caution potential buyers that there is a lot of additional information to be obtained by seeing a hearing care expert. The expert is able to recommend particular types and models based on the results of your hearing test and a set of lifestyle questions about where you intend to use your hearing aid and the kinds of hobbies you regularly take part in.
