Paris TN Audiologist, Audiology & Hearing Aid Clinic, Releases Quick Reference Guide to Hearing Aid Model Options

Paris, TN (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

Investigating hearing aids can be difficult for the novice buyer because there are numerous distinct types and numerous different abbreviations employed to refer to them. To help the public make sense of the numerous styles and the definitions of all the abbreviations, Audiology & Hearing Aid Clinic recently published a quick reference guide online at Differentiating Hearing Aid Styles, Types and Abbreviations.

The following major hearing aid styles are contained in the list, which is displayed ordered from smallest to largest:

Invisible in Canal (IIC)
Completely in Canal (CIC)
In the Canal (ITC)
In the Ear (ITE)
Receiver In the Ear (RIE or RITE)
Open Ear / Open Fit
Behind the Ear (BTE)

When all the hearing aid styles are listed side by side, it's easy to understand why buyers have a hard time distinguishing them. Many of the names and acronyms are extremely similar. Audiology & Hearing Aid Clinic hopes that the quick reference guide will help clarify a number of of the important differences between the various types of hearing aids. While noting that independent research is an important part in selecting the ideal hearing aid, Audiologists would caution consumers that there is a lot of additional information to be obtained by consulting with a hearing care specialist. The audiologists help consumers trim the list of options by inquiring about lifestyle, activities and the surroundings in which the hearing aid will be worn. These are all important factors in selecting the right hearing aid.
