When people have hearing problems, one of the first things they consider is the possibility that they need a hearing aid. Hearing aids are the most recommended treatment for hearing loss, as they have improved and evolved into very intuitive devices.
Today’s hearing instruments are true marvels of technology. There are many choices in hearing aids and many have advanced capabilities.

When audiologists test for hearing impairment and make a diagnosis, part of the plan for each patient may include the possibility of needing amplification. The audiologist wants to make sure that an instrument is effective and comfortable.

Selecting your hearing aid
When selecting your hearing aids, it’s important to consider multiple factors, including your lifestyle, level of hearing loss and features most important to you. Hearing aids offer a variety of different features, from Bluetooth technology to multiple settings making it easier to switch between different sound environments.
Because there are multiple hearing aid technologies available, we consider numerous factors when recommending devices for each individual, including:
- The degree of hearing loss
- The appropriate level of technology for the individual’s listening needs
- The dexterity of the wearer to use and care for the device
- The look and feel of the hearing aid
Hearing aid connectivity
Hearing aids today have remarkable abilities. They connect with cell phones through Bluetooth technology. They are multi-directional or omni-directional, helping wearers get the exact help they need in many situations. They have built-in noise reduction capabilities as well, making it easier to hear in group settings.
Kalady Audiology wants every hearing aid wearer to experience the freedom of hearing clearly in every possible situation. Let our professionals fit you for the exact device you need.
