A Solution for Single Sided Hearing Loss

CROS will transmit sound and voices to let your better hearing ear hear for both of your ears. If you have hearing in one ear and poor hearing in the other, then CROS will work for you.

The CROS transmitter with a microphone to pick up sounds and voices from the poorer hearing ear and wirelessly transmits them to the hearing aid on the better hearing ear.

The hearing aid receives the signal from the poorer hearing ear and delivers it to your better hearing ear.

Hearing Aid Styles

Hearing aids come in multiple technology levels and styles, which range from “Entry-level” to “Premium”. Choosing the right hearing aid depends on your specific requirements, such as your lifestyle or your need for a “Power” instrument. Dr. Harvey is an expert in each level and type of hearing aid, and she can assist you in making the right choice.

Things to Consider

  • The degree of hearing loss
  • The type of hearing loss
  • Dexterity
  • Budget
  •  Lifestyle
  • Cosmetics
  • Skin Sensitivities
  • Medical Considerations

In-the-Ear (ITE) or Full Shell
Full shell instruments fill the entire outer ear bowl. Due to their larger size, they allow for more features and functions. These include a larger battery, directional microphones, volume controls, and can fit larger receivers for more severe hearing losses. They are designed for mild to severe hearing losses.

Behind-the-ear (BTE) Mini BTE
Mini BTE styles are designed to hide behind the outer ear and have ultra-thin tubing to discreetly route sound into the ear. The tubing typically connects to a soft tip that sits in the ear canal but doesn’t occlude it. The result is a natural, open feeling as airflow and sound enter the ear naturally around the tip, while amplified sound enters through the tip. This is as “open fitting” and is recommended for mild to moderate hearing loss.

Receiver-in-the-Ear (RITE) or Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)
RITE hearing aid styles are BTEs that feature built-in speakers within the ear tip instead of the body of the hearing aid. Though it is slightly larger than the Mini BTE, it is still relatively unnoticeable. These types are designed for mild to severe hearing loss.

Behind-the-Ear (BTE) with Earmold
BTEs with earmolds have a longer shape that follows the curve behind the out er ear. These larger models allow for a programmable button and volume control. The earmold’s color and style can match the wearer’s hairstyle if preferred. These are designed for mild to profound hearing loss.
