Date:11/14/2013

Lake Charles, LA (PRWEB) November 14, 2013

Researching hearing aids can be difficult for the novice buyer because there are numerous distinct types and numerous different abbreviations used to refer to them.To clear up some of the frustration, The Hearing Center of Lake Charles released a quick reference guide to popular hearing aid designs and terminology on their site titled Understanding the Large Number of Abbreviations Commonly Used to Identify Hearing Aids Models and Styles.

The guide is organized from smallest to largest and includes the following major hearing aid styles:

Invisible in Canal (IIC)
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 types immediately demonstrates why consumers often have trouble making sense of the similar names and abbreviations. The Hearing Center of Lake Charles hopes that the quick reference guide will help shed light on some of the important differences between the various styles of hearing aids. Having said that, the Audiologists at The Hearing Center of Lake Charles encourage any person considering a hearing aid purchase not to depend on online research alone, but rather to schedule an appointment with a specialist. The expert can suggest specific types and models in line with the results of your hearing test and a set of lifestyle questions about where you intend to wear your hearing aid and the sorts of hobbies you routinely take part in.
