The guide to hearing aid alternatives will help to make it more convenient for Kennett Square-area consumers to grasp the vocabulary and acronyms commonly used to talk about various hearing aid types.

Hearing aids can be difficult to research because of the extensive amount of new vocabulary and acronyms used to identify them. It is particularly tough for the first time hearing aid buyer.To clear up some of the frustration, Hearing Aid Associates published a user-friendly list of popular hearing aid types and terminology on their website titled Hearing Aid Abbreviations, Styles and Varieties.

The subsequent major hearing aid styles are contained in the list, which is presented in order from smallest to largest:

Invisible in Canal (IIC)
Extended Wear Hearing Aids
Deep Canal (DC)
Completely in Canal (CIC)
In the Canal (ITC)
In the Ear (ITE)
Receiver In the Ear (RIE or RITE)
Open Ear / Open Fit

It becomes immediately apparent how similar many of the hearing aid names and abbreviations are when viewed alongside each other. Despite the very similar names, these hearing aid styles differ in crucial ways. It's the purpose of the quick reference guide created by Hearing Aid Associates to point out these essential differences. At the same time, the Hearing Aid Dispensers at Hearing Aid Associates encourage any individual considering a hearing aid purchase not to depend upon independent research alone, but rather to make an appointment with a specialist. A hearing care professional can deliver advice about which hearing aid styles are suitable for an individual after learning more about each person's lifestyle and activities and where the hearing aid will be used most often.
