Myths About Hearing Devices

When you think of hearing aids, what comes to mind? Some may think of a large bulky contraption attached to the ear. Others think of something that costs a lot of money and yet is difficult to use and provides little benefit. But is this really the case? Let’s look at the facts.

Myth: Hearing aids are bulky and awkward, everyone will see it!

Fact: Hearing aids now are incredibly small and discreet. There are many different options for hearing aids available. Some styles sit completely in the ear canal, others sit neatly behind the ear with a thin nearly invisible wire going into the ear canal.

To learn more about the different styles of hearing aids take a look at our Types and Styles of Hearing Aids page.
