We carry all styles of hearing aids, but most of our patients are fit with behind-the-ear and open fit. We work with the leading hearing aid manufacturers in the industry to give our patients more options, including a wide selection from Oticon, EarQ, Starkey, Phonak, Resound, Signia, Widex and Unitron.
The brand and style of hearing aid we recommend will depend on a few different things like your lifestyle and what you’re looking for. For example, if you like to use your Bluetooth, there are hearing aids that are more compatible with that than others. Everyone has different preferences. Some people prefer to have a hearing aid with an automatic fit, while others want to be able to customize their listening preferences on the go. Whatever your needs are, we will be sure to find the right hearing aid for you.
Today’s hearing aids are much different than those of the past and come with a variety of features. At North Austin Hearing Center, we offer options for noise management, tinnitus management, and automatic processing.
The differences between different hearing aids and/or brands typically affect the user interface, available apps, connectivity options, and accessories.
Don’t worry if your hearing aids feel a little unnatural or too loud at first. Like everything else, it is an adjustment process that will take a little bit of time. Your brain will eventually get used to the transition.
In some cases, it can even take over a month to feel totally comfortable with the devices. Don’t get discouraged and know that we will be there with you every step of the way. When programming the hearing aids, we typically don’t start at the full capacity you need. We will start slow and work out way up over time.
Earmolds can be made for a variety of purposes, including: noise protection, swimming, music, and hunting. To start, earplugs are a necessity for any excessively noisy situation. Custom-tailored to fit your ears and made of soft silicone, earplugs provide a comfortable solution to take the edge off and keep your ears protected. If you are going to a concert at the Frank Erwin Center, taking a trip to the F1 racetracks, or even just going to a Longhorn football game, make sure you protect your hearing!
Swimming plugs can be used in a pool or during bath time for kids. They are especially helpful for those who have a hole in the eardrum or PE tubes. They can also be used to protect your ear from forming ear osteomas caused by exposure to cold water. Protect your child’s ears by making an appointment for customized swimming plugs today.
These earplugs are designed to give you a hearing boost on the hunt while also providing excellent hearing protection when needed. With specialized amplification and fast-acting attenuation giving you all the benefits of a conventional earplug, these digital hunter’s earplugs are the perfect companion for your next outdoor adventure.
Musicians and music lovers must hear the nuances of melody and bass while also protecting their ears from hazardous noise levels. To maintain the perfect balance, musician’s earplugs are customized to fit your ear and include three interchangeable filters (9 dB, 15 dB, 25 dB) to fit any music scene.
Musicians can easily overstimulate the auditory system, which can lead to tinnitus and hearing loss over time. In-ear monitors can help you hear yourself and your bandmates on stage and in practice, while still giving you the protection needed to keep your ears safe. Protect your most precious asset, your hearing, and give yourself the tools to jam out for hours on end, safely!
