Styles of Hearing Aids
Absolute Audio has a variety of styles and sizes to choose from. Comfort is one of the many reasons patients should consider sizes. Style has more to do with confidence while wearing a hearing aid publicly. Brands will always have a variety of options with different models, so it all comes down to finding what works best.
- In the ear (ITE): Great option for blending in with the rest of the ear
- Behind the ear (BTE): Powerful and doesn’t block the ear canal
- Invisible in the canal (IIC): The tiniest hearing aid available
- Completely in the canal (CIC): Slightly larger than IIC and easier to take out
- In the canal (ITC): Almost invisible but with a longer battery life
SoundGear Hearing Protection
SoundGear hearing protection products also deliver 100% digital noise enhancement, so conversation is easy, and you won't miss a rustle, release or command.
Hearing Aid Batteries
The majority of hearing aids utilize the zinc-air technology. With this technology, batteries last a long amount of time before needing to be replaced. Yellow, brown, orange and blue are the four main types of hearing aid batteries.
- Yellow: Size 10 with a lifespan of 7-10 days
- Brown: Size 312 with a lifespan of 3-10 days
- Orange: Size 13 with a lifespan of 6-14 days
- Blue: Size 675 with a lifespan of 9-20 days
