Hearing aids are powerful miniature computers. They can be programmed, automatically adjust to hearing environments and perform wireless functions. It is all the more important today that patients know all the facts and choices for hearing aids. Port Credit Audiology specializes in the recommendation and use of these sophisticated instruments.
Hearing Aid Accessories
With the advances in wireless technology, we are able to extend the functionality of your hearing aids. With the addition of these accessories, you can optimize listening across all environments, including the television, telephone and restaurants.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Hearing aids and protective hearing devices can be worn completely inside the ear or partially outside it. A piece that fits the outer ear is called an earmold. It is made specifically for your ear; there are no generically fitted earmolds. Earplugs for protection can be molded to your ear canal or bought generically, but your hearing professional should always recommend the right earplugs for your needs, which can vary widely depending on loudness and duration of sounds.
