HEARING AIDS

TYPES OF HEARING AIDS.

We have a range of hearing aids to suit all budgets and lifestyles, from the latest smart device enabled technology to our standard and entry level hearing aids.

At Dilworth Hearing we aren’t tied to one hearing aid manufacturer, so our audiologists will help you choose the device that is right for you, considering your lifestyle, budget, and level of hearing loss.

Below is some information on the different types of hearing aids available to help you make an informed decision.

Behind-the-Ear - Dilworth Hearing

OUTSIDE THE EAR

Behind-the-ear

This style is versatile, comfortable and easy to use.  Behind-the-ear models are curved to fit behind your ear, delivering sound through a plastic tube and dome, or a custom-made ear piece.

This option suits most types of hearing loss and lifestyles with rechargeable hearing aids available within this range making it easier to charge on the go.

Behind-the-Ear - RIC - Dilworth Hearing

OUTSIDE THE EAR

Receiver in the ear

These hearing aids are the most popular of the Behind-the-ear styles.  They offer excellent sound quality with the inclusion of a small speaker, which sits inside the ear canal.

This type is less suitable for those with a tendency towards ear wax build-up.

Inside-the-ear - Invisible - Dilworth Hearing

INSIDE THE EAR

Invisible in canal

Easy and comfortable to wear, these devices are custom-made to fit your ear canal. It sits deep inside the ear canal, so it’s almost invisible.

It’s the perfect solution for those who want a discreet hearing aid and have a mild to moderate hearing loss.

Inside-the-ear - In the ear - Dilworth Hearing

INSIDE THE EAR

In the ear

If you have problems with dexterity, in-the-ear hearing aids could be a good option.

The electronics are housed in a custom-made shell, which sits in your outer ear making them easier to use.

Inside-the-ear - CIC- Dilworth Hearing

INSIDE THE EAR

Completely-in-canal

With their custom-made shell this hearing aid fits entirely in your ear canal making the device very discreet.

However, being smaller means that this style is less powerful, so it’s only suitable for some forms of hearing loss, and often some features are unable to be included due to its size.
