Finding hearing aids in Tucson AZ can be challenging to research because of the vast amount of new vocabulary and acronyms used to describe them. It is especially hard for the first time hearing aid shopper. To help consumers make sense of the various types and the meanings of all the abbreviations, Adobe Hearing Center just recently released a quick reference guide on their website at

The guide contains basic information on the most popular hearing aid styles including Invisible in Canal, Completely in Canal, In the Canal, In the Ear, Receiver In the Ear and Behind the Ear.

When all the hearing aid models are shown side by side, it's easy to understand why consumers have a hard time differentiating them. Many of the names and abbreviations are very similar. Despite the similar names, these hearing aid styles differ in crucial ways. It is the goal of the quick reference guide created by Adobe Hearing Center to highlight these fundamental differences. At the same time, the audiologists at Adobe Hearing Center encourage any person considering a hearing aid purchase not to depend upon internet research alone, but rather to make an appointment with a professional. The professional is able to suggest particular types and models in line with the results of your hearing test and some lifestyle questions about where you intend to use your hearing aid and the kinds of hobbies you regularly participate in.
