Audiologists at Progressive Hearing in North Miami Share Pros and Cons of Open-Fit Style Hearing Aids
Date:12/31/2013

North Miami, FL (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 North Miami about this new option, the Audiologists at Progressive Hearing have published a comparison article online at What You Should Know If You’re Considering Open Fit Style Hearing Aids. Dr. Susan Roth'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.

Local residents are encouraged to contact Progressive Hearing to ask further questions about open fit hearing aids in North Miami and arrange for a demonstration or trial.
