Audiologist in St. George, UT – Hearing Aid Types 

If you are considering hearing aids to treat your hearing loss, you’ll probably want to understand the different types available on the market. While all hearing aids use the same basic parts to carry sounds from the environment to your ear and amplify them, they differ in design and features. Our audiologist in St. George, UT, explains more below.

How Do They Work?

Most hearing aids are digital, though they may have a traditional (replaceable) battery or a rechargeable battery. The devices contain small microphones that collect sounds from the environment, in which a computer chip converts into digital code. The chip analyzes and adjusts the sound based on your level and type of hearing loss, listening needs, and the loudness of the sounds in your environment. Amplified signals are then converted back into sound waves and delivered to your ears through receivers (small speakers).

Different Types

Some different types of hearing aids on the market include:

  • In-the-canal: these fit in the ear canal and are less visible than larger styles. They are a good choice for mild to moderate hearing loss.
  • Behind-the-ear: a larger hearing aid that hooks behind your ear. An ear mold fits inside your ear canal and connects to a tube to help all levels of hearing loss.
  • In-the-ear: a larger hearing aid that can help with mild to severe hearing loss and fills the bowl of your outer ear.
  • Completely in-canal: fit inside the ear canal and are the least visible hearing aid for mild to moderate hearing loss.
  • Receiver-in-ear: similar to behind-the-ear hearing aids but a wire is used instead of a tube to connect the earpiece to the speaker.

Other Features

Certain brands and types of hearing aids may feature rechargeable batteries, enhanced noise reduction, and directional microphones for improved sound pickup. Directional microphones help reduce sounds behind or beside you and some may focus in one direction to improve your hearing in environments with a lot of background noise.

"I've been with Dr. Manwarring for several years now. Having a good audiologist is very important to me. I've tried a couple of others, and they just don't seem to fit right with my needs and expectations.I would highly recommend Dr. Manwarring to anyone. Because of him, I have been given quality care, relate well with him, and I know I can depend on him to help me with my hearing aid and hearing loss needs."- Michelle B. 5 star
"They are always professional and friendly. They were able to assist my mother with getting hearing aids that work for her. They knew what type would suit her best. Service is excellent. I would recommend them to everyone who has hearing issues!"- Joan Y. 5 star
"Justin Bateman, the audiologist I worked with for my annual follow up and maintenance. He was so knowledgeable and thorough. He made a minor tweak to my hearing aids to adjust for a slight change in my hearing. It noticeably improved my hearing while wearing my hearing aids. Justin was very pleasant and efficient to deal with. I highly recommend this office."- Kerry W. 5 star
