Hearing Aids

Providing Hearing Aids in Stamford, CT & Surrounding Areas

Our board certified audiologist has the training and expertise to recommend and implant hearing aids. Our audiologist will work with you to decide what hearing aid is right for you based on your level of hearing loss, the appearance of the aid, physical limitations and lifestyle. These factors and many others are important determinants in deciding the perfect fit for your hearing and ears.
Styles of Hearing Aids
In the ear and behind the ear styles provide for different levels of comfort, functionality, hearing loss level, visibility and much more.
In-the-Ear Styles

Invisible in The Canal (IIC): This style of hearing aid provides 100% invisibility deep in the ear canal. This is custom designed to fit inside your ear.

Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC)/Mini Canal: This style of hearing aid is not only the smallest but it can be discretely molded to fit perfectly inside of your ear. This can be used for most degrees of hearing loss.

In-the-Canal (ITC): This hearing aid fits partially within the ear. This is generally recommended for those who have mild to moderate hearing loss.

Full Shell or In-the-Ear (ITE): This style of hearing aid is larger than the other in the ear styles. This aid has a longer battery life as well as volume control

Behind-the-Ear Styles

Mini Behind the Ear (BTE):
This is the most discreet type of behind the ear hearing aid. A slim tube and tip are connected together into the ear to have the sound travel through.

Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)/Receiver in the ear (RITE):
Tiny wiring that connects tubing between the small case that sits behind the ear and the actual earpiece. Generally having good manual dexterity is required in order to manipulate the controls on the faceplate.

Open Fit:
A thin tube is attached to the hearing aid making it less visible. This is good for those who have mild to moderate hearing loss due to the ability of providing low to high frequency sounds to come into the ear canal.
