What are hearing aids?
A hearing aid is a battery powered electronic device which helps people with hearing loss to improve their hearing. These devices are worn at ear level, very small, discreet and programmable. They can be worn throughout the day and can be fine-tuned for your specific hearing loss and lifestyle to provide a custom ‘sound fit’ that suits your needs.
Modern hearing aids have features designed to protect your ears from sudden loud noises and classifiers which adjust the hearing aid to the sounds around you. Hearing aids also have wireless connectivity and Bluetooth connectivity options that enables you to connect your hearing aids directly to audio devices like a TV, mobile phone and MP3 player.
Styles of hearing aids:
As shown in the diagram below hearing aids come in a range of different styles. They can be fitted behind the ear or in the ear and there is a number of different aesthetic styles availableand how the particular hearing aid has been selected for your needs. Our hearing aids are priced in line with our service delivery and expertise.
The style of hearing aid best suited for you is mainly based on your hearing level and your environment. If you have a very significant hearing loss, traditionally the larger behind the ear hearing aids are needed to provide you the best hearing clarity possible. However with improving technology, the smaller devices are becoming increasingly powerful and can be suitable for many different levels of hearing loss.
The hearing aid style best suited to you will also be dependent on the environments you visit. If you need to wear headphones or a stethoscope for work, devices that fit deep in the ear canal are the most appropriate. If you work in dusty or humid environments you would benefit the most from hearing aids that have water and dust resistant features. Please note that in some cases your environment and hearing level will not exclude devices and you can choose the hearing aid style that you prefer.
At Lions Hearing Clinics we are dedicated to working with you to select the style of hearing aid best suited to your needs. Whether you require your hearing aid at work, for sport or to hear in quiet one on one situations, we will help find the best hearing aid for you.

Hearing aid technology:
The hearing aid technology best suited to you is dependent on your unique lifestyle and hearing loss. As different people have different lifestyles, they require different hearing aid technology. This is because the technology in hearing aids affects the hearing aids ability to work in different listening situations. If you have a lifestyle that requires hearing in a range of different situations like with the family, at work or on a sporting field you will need a different hearing aid to a person who does not need to hear in these complex listening environments. At Lions Hearing Clinics our expert clinicians listen to you and answer all your questions to make sure that the hearing aid we recommend you has the technology that best suits your lifestyle.
There are many devices that work together with hearing aids to improve your hearing. These devices are called Assistive Listening Devices. Click here to learn more about Assistive Listening Devices.
