THESE ARE SOME OF THE MANUFACTURERS WE REPRESENT AND THEIR BEST FEATURES
Lyric® is the first and only "extended wear" (as opposed to "daily wear") hearing device and we are the only practice carrying it on Cape Cod. It is comfortably placed deeply in the ear canal (only by a certified professional) and is not taken out for an average of 3 months! Sleeping, showering, no battery changes! There is a way to put them "to sleep". Lyric uses your ear's natural anatomy to provide exceptional sound quality, so it is both extremely convenient and is great help to your hearing.
This is a good, solid, established company. My favorite feature of theirs is Connectivity. This is the feature that makes hearing aids connect directly to TV's, Phones, Music players, and now a microphone for the ultimate in listening directly to one person at a time regardless of the noise in the background. Although all manufacturers have this feature now, Oticon has been at it for a long time so have the bugs worked out
Phonak's latest release is The NANO, pictured here. It is a very small devise (provided your ear canals are wide enough) that is also wireless and sounds great. Phonak is also one of the manufacturers with "Sound Recover" (their name for it) which is for folks with a dead zone in their hearing.
This company has great feedback control, very few repairs due to terrific wax and moisture protection, and a great bold sound. Pictured here is their version of the "Receiver in the canal" style. Newest to the Alera line is the TS group, for those suffering with Tinnitus. Their wireless connectivity works without a devise worn around the neck, and also have the new Mini Microphone.
You can swim and shower with their Aquaris! It was new in 2011. They even have developed a pouch to carry your music player with you to listen to as you swim!
These aids can be controlled (volume etc) by most phones! They now have the SoundLens, which is a deeply inserted devise but removed daily. These aids speak to you in whatever language you choosea?? "Battery!", "Service!". They also have the ability to make dead zone sounds audible and just released their wireless connection line. Worth waiting for!
Hearing and Alerting: together at last. For people who live alone and have a severe loss in particular, Unitron has a new Alert system that works even at night when the hearing aids are out of the ears. When the telephone, doorbell or smoke detector sounds, alerts are instantly seen, felt and heard.
These aids are known for their bold sound and a different battery door that is easy to manipulate. Right now they have quite a few fun features like the Zen technology! It is optional low music played for relaxation and relief from Tinnitus. These aids also speak directions to you, including letting you know if one of your aids is missing! Their remote control is small enough to hang on your keychain.
