Question: There are so many hearing aids to choose from, I need help. I think it would make more sense to me if I knew what all the hearing aids had in common. What pieces do all hearing aids share?

Answer: Great question. It is a great idea to know the similarities of all hearing aids before trying to judge the differences. There are four primary similarities with all hearing aids: A speaker, a microphone, a battery and an amplifier. No discredit to all of the hearing aid companies out there but at the end of the day, their product is simply some combination of these four things.

Question: There seems to be a number of different styles of hearing aids to choose from. Can you outline for me the basic styles that exist?

Answer: You got it. There are five principle styles that all hearing aids are designed around.

  • Open fit – these leave the ear canal open and are really best for people with light to medium hearing loss.

  • In the ear – the most common fit – these fill the ear canal and are good for those with sever hearing loss.
  • Behind the ear – these hearing aids provide the most power and are almost a necessity for people with severe hearing loss.

  • In the canal – good for mild to severe but not ideal for people who are not very good with small knobs and buttons.
  • Completely in the canal – these are perfect for medium to mild hearing loss. They are small so they don’t get wind disturbance at all but the smaller batteries lead to more frequent changing.

    The five main hearing aid styles are interesting to consider. From afar hearing aids can all seem similar. Far from it. There are many distinctions.
