There are several factors that are considered when recommending a particular brand, style, or level of technology for you. Your hearing loss, lifestyle, preferences, budget and dexterity are only a few factors that dictate a particular recommendation. Carolina Hearing Associates regularly works with Phonak, Oticon, and Unitron. By providing technology from multiple manufacturers we are able to give you the best recommendation for your particular needs and wants.
Each manufacturer aims to improve speech understanding for people with hearing loss. As with all electronics, technology is always changing and improving. As this occurs we will update you on new technology available that may improve your hearing and understanding abilities. There are multiple levels of technology provided by each manufacturer. As technology level increases, the features available increase as well.
At your hearing aid evaluation appointment we will discuss each level of technology with you and make a recommendation based on your needs and your hearing loss. Our goal is to work with you to provide the most beneficial technology to help you improve your communication.
