The Right Hearing Aids

Hearing aids aren't one-size-fits-all. They need to be personalized to your needs. You might experience the same hearing loss as other people but still need different hearing aids because it's not just about what your hearing loss looks like. We also consider:

  • Age — How long have you waited to get hearing aids? Has your speech comprehension been affected? Are you comfortable handling delicate hearing devices?
  • Lifestyle — Do you stay home and in quiet environments, or are you often out and about? How much do you encounter background noise?
  • Expectations — How comfortable are you with advanced technology? How particular are you about sound quality and noise filtering?
  • Finances —What is your budget?

Introducing The World’s Most Powerful Hearing Aids

Oticon Xceed hearing aid

Oticon has some of the most technologically advanced hearing aids on the market today. Along with BrainHearing technology and Own Voice Processing, Oticon has recently released three new hearing aids to provide you with a seamless listening experience.

The Oticon Xceed and the Xceed Play are the most powerful hearing aids for adults and children with severe-to-profound hearing loss. They both offer 360⁰ access to speech without the interference of background noise. This allows for a better listening experience as well as improved learning for children. The Xceed and Xceed Play feature groundbreaking technology that reduces feedback, such as static or whistling, so you can hear clearer and with better attention. Adults and children can control these devices straight from their smartphones through an app, creating more control and improved usability. The Xceed for adults comes in a variety of colors to match your skin tone or hair color while the Xceed Play includes bright, fun colors in addition to the neutral tones for younger users.

Oticon CROS hearing aids offer a revolutionary 360⁰ sound experience for those with single-sided deafness. CROS hearing aids include a transmitter with a microphone that wirelessly picks up sound and sends it from your poorer ear to your better ear with a hearing aid. This allows you to easily engage in conversations in different environments. Oticon CROS hearing aids feature OpenSoundNavigator and TwinLink dual-streaming technology so you can hear from all directions. This gives you the freedom to do what you love while enjoying a more natural listening experience.

Hearing Aid Brands

We focus on a few manufacturers in particular because we've had the best results with them. It's impossible to know every hearing aid equally well, so having a narrower focus lets us know the ins and outs of our preferred manufacturers.

  • Through years of using these products, we've seen what gives our patients the best experiences.
  • Our loyalty is to our patients, and we choose which hearing aids to recommend based on what our patients need.
  • We are able to select from a wider range of hearing devices because we're not limited to the product line of a single hearing aid brand.

Technological Breakthroughs

Working in the hearing industry is exciting because hearing technology is always improving. We're able to help patients with more severe hearing loss or complicated hearing situations than we could in the past, and there's always something new on the horizon.

A recent game-changer is the introduction of reliable rechargeable hearing aids. For patients who have difficulty with small hearing aid batteries, these rechargeable units are convenient and comfortable. In addition to advancements that make the hearing experience itself better, there have been other quality-of-life improvements such as Bluetooth streaming and connectivity to telephones and televisions. Even telecoils, for use in public venues such as theatres, museums and airports, can better help you get the most enjoyment out of life.
