Hearing aids come in several different styles. The various styles are typically divided into two categories: custom fit and standard fit.
As the name implies, custom fit hearing aids are custom molded to your ear. Ears are are even more unique than finger prints so every custom hearing aid is truly one-of-a-kind. As you can see in the pictures below, custom hearing aids fit entirely into the ear. Standard fit hearing aids, on the other hand, are typically worn over the ear and have thin, clear tubing with small rubber or silicone buds that fit into the ear rather than a custom shell. Some hearing aids are a mix of both categories. For example, many hearing aids worn behind the ear can have custom ear molds attached to them.
So, you're probably wondering... which style is right for me? Great question! To determine which style would work best, you need to have a complete hearing evaluation. Degree and type of hearing loss, physical shape and size of your ear, personal preference, and other factors should all be taken into account.
