Invisible Hearing Aids in Salem
These hearing aids are known by many names, invisible in canal, invisible hearing aids, hidden hearing aids and probably a few more. They are also exceptionally popular in the mind of consumers, Many people really want an invisible hearing aid. But, what is available and from who, more than that, what do you need to know about the devices to make an educated choice when buying them? Firstly and generally, they are really only of use to people with mild to moderate hearing losses.
What are invisible hearing aids?
Invisible hearing aids are deep fitting custom made hearing devices that sit deep within the ear canal. More often than not, the faceplate of the hearing aid cannot be seen. For this reason, they have been given the name invisible. The first manufacturer to introduce modern invisible hearing aids was Starkey, they introduced the SoundLens and it began the race across all hearing device manufacturers to introduce an invisible device. Each and every manufacturer has now introduced an invisible hearing aid option.
These hearing instruments are called by different names by the different hearing aid manufacturers, SoundLens by Starkey, nano by Phonak, IIC by Widex and invisible in canal or just plain invisible hearing aids by Oticon. No matter what the name is, they are all the same thing, deep canal hearing aids. In recent years, some of the hearing device manufacturers have introduced wireless invisible hearing devices. Something which had been technically difficult.
Are invisible hearing devices suitable for everyone?
The short answer is no, not at this time, while your hearing loss obviously needs to be taken into account, the major stumbling block to suitability is normally the size and shape of your ear canal. If your ear canal is either too small, too narrow or too awkward, you won't be suitable for these devices, It is as simple as that. Even with advancements in technology, that will probably remain the case for a few years to come. The manufacturers simply need a finite amount of space to fit all of the components in, if your canal does not offer that space, you are out of luck.

Rechargeable Hearing Aids in Salem
Modern rechargeable hearing aids have proven hugely popular with hearing aid users. All of the big hearing aid brands have by now introduced their own. Phonak was the first brand to introduce the modern range of rechargeable hearing aids but they were quickly followed by Signia. The two market leaders introduced Lithium-Ion powered rechargeable hearing aids. The rest of the brands initially went for Silver-Zinc powered rechargeable hearing aids powered by the Z-Power system. However, they are all now switching to Lithium-ion as their preferred powerpack system
Two Types of Rechargeable Systems
Rechargeable hearing aids come in two modern rechargeable hearing aid system types, each having their strengths and weaknesses. While Z-Power systems initially looked like they were perhaps the best of both worlds, there have been many problems since their introduction. Most Professionals now prefer to use Lithium-ion powered rechargeable hearing aids where possible. Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries last up to 30 hours on one charge and they have a lifespan of up to six years.
