Let us help you find the right hearing aid for your lifestyle.

Hearing aids can greatly improve the quality of life for those with hearing loss as well as their family, friends, and associates. Once corrected, patients with hearing loss can more effectively engage in conversations both professionally and socially. This greatly reduces the stresses a hearing loss causes. Research has shown that an untreated hearing impairment can result in withdrawal from social activities and cognitive decline. Use of a hearing aid also reduces the stress family, friends and coworkers experience.

Variety Is the Spice of Life

Traditional behind-the-ear (BTE)The traditional BTE packs more power and reach than smaller devices and can offer both manual flexibility for control and automation for individuals with mild to severe hearing loss.

Mini receiver-in-the-canal BTE (RIC)The Mini receiver-in-the-canal BTE (RIC) is the smallest RIC ever designed and is virtually unseen when worn. The Mini RIC might be tiny but it packs a punch when it comes to performance, style and one of a kind features.

Behind-the-ear (BTE)The BTE is a popular style worn behind the ear that connects to an ear mold that rests inside the outer ear. Sound is conducted from the hearing aid into the ear mold. Although this can be the largest type of hearing aid, it is also the most powerful and often the easiest to adjust. BTE hearing aids are appropriate for the treatment of almost all types of hearing loss.

Made for iPhone TechnologyMFI instruments are co-developed with Apple Inc. to provide the hearing device user discrete wireless connectivity to sounds that matter most. These newer instruments provide optimal listening.

In-the-ear (ITE)In-the-ear (ITE) In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids are also known as custom hearing aids because they are individually manufactured to fit a person’s ear. They range from the so-called Micro-CIC instrument, which fits completely in the ear canal, to the full-shell hearing aid, which completely fills the bowl of the ear.

Custom-in-the-canal (ITC)Custom-in-the-canal (ITC) ITC instruments are custom built for your ear, so they fit snugly and comfortably. Only the face of the device extends into the outer ear, while the body extends into your ear canal. The slightly larger design offers extra power, making the ITC a great selection for mild to mildly severe hearing loss.

Completely in-the-canal (CIC)Completely in-the-canal (CIC) This hearing aid model is molded to fit completely inside your ear canal. The outer faceplate of the shell is barely visible in the ear canal. The CIC is a very discreet option that can fit a mild to moderate hearing loss.

Hearing Aid Levels

Hearing aids can greatly improve the quality of life for those with hearing loss as well as their family, friends, and associates. Once corrected, patients with hearing loss can more effectively engage in conversations both professionally and socially. This greatly reduces the stresses a hearing loss causes. Research has shown that an untreated hearing impairment can result in withdrawal from social activities and cognitive decline. Use of a hearing aid also reduces the stress family, friends and coworkers experience.

Hearing aids come in four general technology levels: Premium, Advanced, Intermediate, and Essential. Selecting the proper hearing aid greatly depends on your lifestyle and, to a lesser degree, the actual loss. Are you active professionally and socially? What activities do you enjoy? Are you in challenging environments? We take this information along with evaluation results to guide you through the selection process to insure you get the hearing aid that best matches your needs and budget.

Greentree Hearing & Audiology will recommend the right level of hearing aid based on your hearing loss, listening environment and budget.
