Audiologists at Dodero Hearing Center in Santa Barbara CA Analyze the Pros and Cons of Open-Fit Style Hearing Aids

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

In addition to introducing new models of existing hearing aid styles every year, hearing aid manufacturers sometime craft entirely new styles of hearing aids. The Open Fit hearing aid is a relatively new style that is gaining in popularity because is has several distinct advantages over other styles. To educate hearing aid users in Santa Barbara about this new option, the Audiologists at Dodero Hearing Center in have published a comparison article online at Open Fit Hearing Aids – Analyzing the Pros and Cons. Open fit hearing aids share many similarities with behind-the-ear (BTE) devices with a few key distinctions. Dr. David Dodero's analysis focuses on the following pluses and minuses.

1. The case and the tube on the open fit hearing aids are substantially smaller than on behind-the-ear hearing aids.
2. Open fit hearing aids is that it keeps the ear ventilated and allow low frequency sounds are able to enter the ear without being amplified.
3. Open fit hearing aids provide a more natural experience for people with mild to moderate hearing loss.
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. The levels of amplification needed for users with major hearing loss often lead to feedback noise due to the device’s openness.
6. People who have difficulty with fine motor skills may find it difficult to operate and maintain.

Local residents are encouraged to contact Dodero Hearing Center to ask further questions about open fit hearing aids in Santa Barbara and arrange for a demonstration or trial.
