Date:12/31/2013

Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Hearing aid technology advances at a very rapid rate. Manufacturers introduce new models every year and sometimes introduce entirely new styles of hearing aids. The Open Fit hearing aid is a relatively new style that is gaining in popularity. To educate hearing aid users in Tucson AZ about this new option, the Audiologists at Adobe Hearing Center in have published a comparison article online at Exactly What Are Open Fit Type Hearing Aids and How Do They Compare with Other Types? Dr. Lou Cheek's article makes the following key points.

1. Open fit hearing aids share many similarities with behind-the-ear devices.
2. Open fit hearing aids consist of a plastic case that rests behind the ear and a small tube that connects the case to the ear canal.
3. Open fit hearing aids keep the ear to stay ventilated and allow low frequency sounds to enter the ear without additional amplification.
4. The smaller size of the open fit hearing aid makes them easier to disguise as compared to Behind-the-Ear devices.
5. Individuals with severe hearing loss are not good candidates for the open fit hearing aids.
6. Individuals with poor dexterity or fine motor skills may find it difficult to change the small batteries of an open fit hearing aid.
