Today's hearing aid options are wide open... literally. There are many instruments that leave the ear canal open to utilize all the biological hearing a patient has left. Our tiny, high-definition hearing aids give this remaining hearing a boost. This makes the experience much more natural for the user. Most of these hearing aids are undetectable and so comfortable you will forget you have them on!
Most modern instruments include Bluetooth or other wireless technologies that connect to your telephone, TV, music player, or computer. Many of them talk to you and let you know their status. Some have remote controls, and others are rechargeable and require no batteries.
Many hearing aids come in styles that fit deep down in the ear canal or atop your ear, and they can even match your hair color or skin tone. There is a discreet high-tech option for nearly everyone's hearing challenge, and we even have a few retro analog options available if that's your preference.
There is a wide range of hearing aid technology available. Some of the features include:
We are very proud to carry the following high-end hearing aid devices at EarTech:
The Oticon Opn™ provides the user with a clear and natural listening experience. This award-winning device has opened up a new world of sound for hearing aid wearers by allowing you to hear a variety of sounds in a busy environment. The Opn™ is available in a variety of technology levels and styles to better suit your lifestyle and hearing needs. (Ask us about the differences between the Oticon Opn™ 1, 2, and 3 series during your appointment.) Now, you can be more socially active with less listening effort. Additionally, the ease of use on the brain has been shown to improve memory in regard to what was heard!
We believe it is important to stay ahead of the latest trends and technology in the hearing industry so we can continue to provide our patients with the expert care they deserve. We recently attended a two-day training event with EarQ and Oticon in Denver, Colorado, where we learned about new ways we can offer you the best possible hearing healthcare experience.
We were also one of the first in our area to be trained on the newest Oticon technology, including the Opn S. The Opn S is different because it is the first device to deliver speech understanding on par with normal hearing. This means you can take a more active part in difficult listening situations and understand more with less effort.
Try the Opn S for yourself. Make an appointment today!
The open sound experience of the Oticon Opn™ now extends beyond BrainHearing and standard hearing loss treatment. Today, some styles of the device offer Tinnitus SoundSupport™, integrated to help users relieve ringing in the ears in additional to hearing difficulties. The Opn™ also boasts Speech Rescue™. This cutting edge and sophisticated technology is designed to detect and process speech better than any comparable hearing aids on the market. Additionally, the new Power options exist to help patients who may have severe or profound hearing loss. The BTE model, while larger, can provide treatment and amplification for all levels of hearing loss, even the most significant.
Another new and exciting addition to the Oticon Opn™ family are the rechargeable options, through which you can experience all-day power without ever needing to change hearing aid batteries! An easy-to-use charger will restore the power overnight so that the devices will be ready to go in the morning. This is a significant and environmentally-friendly improvement compared with the standard approach, through which patients may sometimes use over 150 disposable batteries per year!
At EarTech, we are experienced in fitting the Opn™. Our own Marja wears it herself and loves it!
EarTech is also proud to offer ConnectLine from Oticon. We will come to your house and connect the television, home phone, cell phone, and computers. When you receive a call or want to watch television, you can listen at your own private volume through your hearing aids! To coincide with this, we carry the Oticon ConnectClip, which is a wireless microphone and stereo headset all at the same time. The ConnectClip can serve as a remove control for your Oticon Opn hearing aids, adjust directionality so that you can hear someone speaking from a distance, and more. The ConnectClip also includes a noise reduction feature so that voices come through clearly.
People suffering with tinnitus have been told for so long that there is nothing that can be done about the ringing in their years. That is simply not true. At Eartech we feature the Starkey Xino to help our patients find relief from their tinnitus.
ReSound has done an excellent job of making hearing aids that can seamlessly adapt to your listening environment, allowing you to transition effortlessly from quiet to noisy settings, and much more. Their app and iPhone integration is also second to none.
