Invisible hearing aids are a popular option for people with hearing loss because they are discreet and comfortable. They are also easy to use, which makes them a great choice for people who have difficulty using traditional hearing aids.
Invisible hearing aids are perfect for people who want to keep their hearing loss private, and they come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit any budget.
Should You Get an Invisible Hearing Aid?
The Shape of Your Ear
Invisible hearing aids are supposed to sit comfortably and deep within the ear canal. Before you choose your style, it’s important to speak with a highly trained professional like Paul here at The Hearing Space. If your ear canal is narrow, small, or has an unusual shape, then invisible hearing aids may not work for you.
The Severity of Hearing Loss
Make sure you have your hearing tested by an Audiologist like Paul. The invisible hearing aid is meant for people with mild to moderate hearing loss. You wouldn’t want to find out after purchasing your invisible hearing aid that it won’t work for you because your hearing loss is worse than you thought. This is why it is so important to see a professional who will take your lifestyle and personal needs into account as well as your hearing loss.
Allergies to Traditional Hearing Aids
Some patients may have allergies or skin sensitivities that make it difficult to wear certain types of hearing aids. If you’ve had trouble in the past with allergies, you may want to ask about alternative materials for your hearing aid.
Know Your Hearing Aid Budget
Invisible hearing aids are not readily available through the NHS. You can buy them privately, but you’ll want to plan ahead and budget for any advanced features. These could include Bluetooth connectivity, feedback cancellation, and automatic adjustments. This can all be discussed with your hearing healthcare professional or Audiologist.
Maintenance for Invisible Hearing Aids
Invisible hearing aids should be cleaned and dried every day to prevent bacteria from building up. You’ll want to store them in a dry place when not in use. If you experience any problems with your invisible hearing aids, be sure to contact your Audiologist for help.
If you do not buy the rechargeable version, you will need to change the battery. If you have arthritis or have trouble manipulating small objects, you’ll want to invest in the rechargeable option.
Making the Right Call for Your Hearing Health
Hearing loss is a fact of life for many, not something to be embarrassed or ashamed about. But many still feel self-conscious about needing hearing aids. If you feel this way too, talk to our team who will reassure you that getting hearing aids actually gives you a better chance of hearing well in the future.
