Prominent Santa Barbara, CA Audiologist, Dodero Hearing Center Creates Easy Reference Guide to Hearing Aid Style and Design Choices
Date:10/20/2013

Santa Barbara, California (PRWEB) October 20, 2013

Researching hearing aids can be difficult for the first time shopper because there are numerous different types and numerous different acronyms used to refer to them. To help buyers make sense of the many types and the meanings of all the abbreviations, Dodero Hearing Center recently released a quick reference guide on their site at Hearing Aid Abbreviations, Types and Designs.

The guide contains basic information on the most widespread Santa Barbara hearing aid types including Behind the Ear (BTE), Completely in Canal (CIC), Half Shell (HS), In the Ear (ITE), In the Canal (ITC), Invisible in Canal (IIC), Open Ear/Open Fit, Receiver In the Ear (RITE) or (RIE) and Power.

A side-by-side listing of all the primary hearing aid styles quickly reveals why buyers often have trouble making sense of the similar names and abbreviations. Despite the similar names, these hearing aid styles differ in crucial ways. It's the goal of the quick reference guide written by Dodero Hearing Center to point out these essential differences. Having said that, the Audiologists at Dodero Hearing Center encourage any individual considering a hearing aid purchase not to rely on independent research alone, but rather to make an appointment with an expert. A hearing care specialist can deliver advice about which hearing aid styles are best suited for an individual after discovering more about each person's activities and lifestyle and where the hearing aid will be worn most often.
