Fitting someone with the right hearing aids requires patience and flexibility. What works for one patient won't necessarily have great results for someone else because every ear and every hearing loss is different. At Mid Island Audiology, we personalize your hearing healthcare and take the time to listen to what you need from your hearing aids. We also give you a comprehensive hearing evaluation that allows us to fully understand your hearing loss. From this, we're able to see the big picture of your hearing situation and start thinking of solutions that will help you.
There are so many reliable, effective hearing aids available today. But not every hearing aid will be right for you, no matter how powerful it is. When we determine what hearing aids to recommend for you, we consider:
We pride ourselves on working hard to understand what you truly need. We'll never recommend hearing aids to you just because they're more advanced and more expensive. All our recommendations are personalized to you. If we try something and it isn't working for you, we'll find something else. We aren't satisfied until you're satisfied.
Like any other technology, hearing aids have made significant advancements to offer a better listening experience. Some of the benefits are incredible! While hearing aids of the past would simply amplify sound, today's hearing aids do so much more. The Oticon Opn S is a groundbreaking hearing aid that has opened up a new world of options for the user and taken the Open Sound Experience to the next level.
The Opn S is different because according to the Juul Jenson 2018 Oticon Whitepaper, it is the first device to deliver speech understanding on par with normal hearing. This means you can take a more active part in difficult listening situations and understand more with less effort. You can feel at ease in any setting, whether it is a busy restaurant or an event with multiple speakers. Now, you can thrive in noisy environments, just like people with normal hearing! Additional features include:
Remember, better hearing allows you to connect with the world around you and enjoy communication with the ones you love. If you've never tried hearing aids before - or it's been a while - try the Oticon Opn S! You'd be surprised how much a tiny device can impact your life and well-being.
Introducing The World's Most Powerful Hearing Aids
Oticon has some of the most technologically advanced hearing aids on the market today. Along with BrainHearing technology and Own Voice Processing, Oticon has recently released three new hearing aids to provide you with a seamless listening experience.
The Oticon Xceed and the Xceed Play are the most powerful hearing aids for adults and children with severe-to-profound hearing loss. They both offer 360° access to speech without the interference of background noise. This allows for a better listening experience as well as improved learning for children. The Xceed and Xceed Play feature groundbreaking technology that reduces feedback, such as static or whistling, so you can hear clearer and with better attention. Adults and children can control these devices straight from their smartphones through an app, creating more control and improved usability. The Xceed for adults comes in a variety of colors to match your skin tone or hair color while the Xceed Play includes bright, fun colors in addition to the neutral tones for younger users.
Oticon CROS hearing aids offer a revolutionary 360° sound experience for those with single-sided deafness. CROS hearing aids include a transmitter with a microphone that wirelessly picks up sound and sends it from your poorer ear to your better ear with a hearing aid. This allows you to easily engage in conversations in different environments. Oticon CROS hearing aids feature OpenSoundNavigator and TwinLink dual-streaming technology so you can hear from all directions. This gives you the freedom to do what you love while enjoying a more natural listening experience.
To get the most out of your hearing aids, it's important to take good care of them on an ongoing basis. We will go over the treatment of your hearing aids when we first fit you with them, and we're available to answer your questions if you ever need a refresher. In general, you'll want to clean your hearing aids every day, change the batteries regularly, and replace the wax guard every week or every month.
