Behind-the-ear, In-the-ear or In-the-drawer?

Which digital hearing aid is right for me?

There’s a big choice when it comes to hearing aids

Today’s digital hearing aids are smaller, lighter and neater than those of even just a few years ago. They are also more powerful and some are so discreet they are virtually invisible.

Digital hearing aids vary in design, from those that sit behind the ear to those which are placed deep into the ear canal.

You should consider these points before deciding on which type to choose.

Smallest not always best

These include the level of hearing loss and the dexterity of the wearer. The idea of a very inconspicuous hearing aid worn in the ear or in the ear canal may be appealing, but the smallest hearing aid is not always the best.
