Quick Reference Guide to Hearing Aid Style and Design Choices Created by the Audiologists at Silver State Hearing & Balance in Reno, NV

Reno, NV (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

The many different types of hearing aids and the numerous different abbreviations employed to refer to them make it hard for novice buyers to conduct their own research. Silver State Hearing & Balance hopes that the list of common hearing aid types and terminology recently added to their internet site will help Reno residents better understand their hearing aid options. The post is called Learning the Wide Range of Acronyms Commonly Used to Distinguish Hearing Aids Styles and contains fundamental information on the most popular hearing aid styles among them:

Invisible in Canal (IIC)
Extended Wear Hearing Aids
Deep Canal (DC)
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)

A side-by-side listing of all the major hearing aid styles quickly reveals why shoppers often have difficulty making sense of the similar names and acronyms. Despite the similar names, these hearing aid designs differ in crucial ways. It is the purpose of the quick reference guide written by Silver State Hearing & Balance to point out these fundamental differences. At the same time, the Audiologists at Silver State Hearing & Balance encourage any individual considering a hearing aid purchase not to rely on independent research alone, but rather to make an appointment with a specialist. A hearing care expert can provide advice about which hearing aid models are best suited for an individual after learning more about each person's lifestyle and activities and where the hearing aid will be used most frequently.
