Prominent San Antonio TX Hearing Aid Dispenser, San Antonio Hearing Centers, Posts User-Friendly Guide to Hearing Aid Model Options

Share Article

The new guide to hearing aid options will help to make it more convenient for San Antonio-area residents to learn the vocabulary and abbreviations frequently used to talk about different hearing aid types.

The many distinct types of hearing aids and the many different acronyms used to refer to them make it hard for novice buyers to perform research. To help the public make sense of the numerous types and the definitions of all the acronyms, San Antonio Hearing Centers recently posted a user-friendly list on their site at Hearing Aid Type and Style List – What Do All Those Acronyms Mean?

The guide is organized alphabetically and consists of the following major hearing aid types:

Behind the Ear (BTE)
Completely in Canal (CIC)
Half Shell (HS)
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 list of all the major hearing aid styles quickly demonstrates why shoppers often have difficulty making sense of the similar names and acronyms. The quick reference guide written by San Antonio Hearing Centers is a first step in clearing up some of that confusion. At the same time, the Hearing Aid Dispensers at San Antonio Hearing Centers encourage any person considering a hearing aid purchase not to depend upon online research alone, but rather to schedule an appointment with a specialist. The Hearing Instrument Specialists help consumers trim the list of options by inquiring about activities, lifestyle and the surroundings in which the hearing aid will be used. These are all important aspects in choosing the best hearing aid.
