Hearing Aids

Customized Hearing Aid Solutions in Charlotte

A customized hearing loss solution will give you superior hearing and satisfaction.

Before discussing hearing aid technology, our comprehensive hearing evaluations must first accurately assess your ability to hear and understand speech. With compassion, we invest all the time necessary to learn about your medical history, hearing status and quality of life concerns. Each of our thorough diagnostic evaluations is performed in a carefully calibrated sound booth by our skilled audiologists.

To provide you the highest quality care, you can expect us to:

  • Complete a thorough medical case history
  • Examine your ears (otoscopy) to ensure clear canals and healthy ear drums.
  • Conduct pure tone testing (air and bone) – to determine the softest sounds you can detect
  • Conduct speech testing – to assess your word understanding
  • Administer tympanometry, acoustic reflex testing and otoacoustic emissions testing as needed
  • Review detailed results and answer all your important questions
  • Discuss personalized recommendations and next healthy steps on your pathway to better hearing
  • As medically necessary and with whole person care essential, we will refer you to another specialist (ex: ENT, Neurologist) if needed

New Hearing Aid Models

Despite the great advances in hearing aid technology that have emerged in recent years, hearing aids do not come out of the box ready for use. Hearing aids need to be programmed and verified for patients to hear their best. Even top-of-the-line hearing aids can be rendered useless if best practice standards are not used.

Each type performs somewhat differently, with a range of applications and customization options to help improve hearing impairment. All hearing aids must be carefully fitted to the individual’s ear and programmed to optimal settings.

Proven Research-Based Methods Make the Difference!

Real Ear Verification

Using a sophisticated microphone measure called Real Ear Verification, our audiologists at Audiology & Hearing Services of Charlotte can obtain sound recordings from inside your ear canal!

With this clinically prescribed way, our audiologist can now “see” exactly what you hear. With this unique perspective, we then
adjust the hearing aid programming to ensure that speech is most audible and comfortable. This is the gold standard for hearing aid fitting. Real Ear Verification results in hearing aids that are safe and effective.

Anything less is guesswork. Why take the chance?

Hearing Aids Options

With a growing number of hearing aid sizes, styles and features to choose from we become an essential resource, connecting you with the best hearing aid design and technology for your hearing goals. Here’s a sampling of some of the technology available to you:

Bluetooth hearing aids

Bluetooth hearing aids allow you to stream audio from any Bluetooth devices, including smartphones. You can stream phone conversations, music, television, and more for a personalized listening experience.

CIC hearing aids

Nano hearing aids have become extremely popular due to their tiny size. They fit comfortably inside the ear canal (CIC = completely-in-canal) and are more discreet than standard hearing aids.

Invisible hearing aids

Invisible hearing aids, also known as IIC heading aids (invisible-in-canal), are designed to sit deep in the ear canal so that they cannot be seen. They are very similar to nano hearing aids.

Rechargeable hearing aids

Rechargeable hearing aids can be plugged in and powered up at night, giving you a full day of usage without the need for disposable batteries.

BAHA hearing aids

BAHA hearing aids, or bone-anchored hearing aids, are implanted through minor surgery. They transform sound that is picked up through the bone instead of through the ear canal like traditional hearing aids. BAHA hearing aids are a solution for people with infections or malformations of their ear canal or middle ear.

Assistive Listening Devices

Individuals with hearing loss can also benefit from specialized products that make phone calls, watching television, enjoying live performances and communicating with others so much easier. Options include:

Amplified telephones
Flashing and vibrating alerting devices
Hearing aid compatible cell phones
FM sound transmission systems
Cell phone and mobile device apps
Hearing loop-compatible telecoil components
