What's The Best Hearing Aid on The Market?

The answer to this question depends on you. What is your hearing loss like? What kind of environments do you spend your time in? How much do you enjoy keeping up with new technology?

Your hearing situation is just as unique as you are, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to fitting you with hearing aids. When you come to a team of experienced clinicians, like the team at Tobias & Battite, you’re gaining access to a wealth of knowledge about what hearing aids are available today and how the different options suit different patients.

Selecting the Best Hearing Aids for You Is a Team Effort

Before we can suggest specific hearing aids to patients, we ask a few questions. Click each question below to reveal more detail.

What kind of listening environments do you have trouble in?

  • Is your hearing good in quiet environments but you struggle to understand people once there’s background noise?
  • Do you spend most of your time at home, or do you often go out into noisier environments (such as restaurants, concerts, or sporting events)?
  • Are you often in classrooms or work meetings where it’s important to listen to one particular speaker?

How comfortable are you with advanced technology?

  • Do you want to be able to control your hearing aid with an app on your phone?
  • Do you want to connect your hearing aid to devices like your television?

What are your aesthetic preferences for hearing aids?

  • Do you want them to be as small as possible?
  • Do you mind what they look like placed behind your ear?
  • Do you want them to be a fashion statement, visible like any other bluetooth device?

Are you comfortable handling very small devices and pressing their buttons?
  • Some hearing aids are small in size and require dexterity to handle.

We also have to consider the results of your hearing test and what we learn about your ears. These are the questions we have to answer for ourselves. Click each question below to reveal more detail.

How severe is your hearing loss?

  • Will it require more powerful technology (and a bigger device) to treat?
  • Is it mild enough to be treated by any size of hearing aid?

What is the size and shape of your ear?

  • Is it large or small?
  • What’s the shape of your inner ear?
  • What will be most comfortable for you?

Do you have tinnitus?

  • How bothersome is your tinnitus, and when is it bothersome?

Do you have any complicated hearing situations?

  • Do you have a difference in hearing between your ears?
  • Do you have any other complex hearing-related situations?

If there’s a particular brand you have had good luck with in the past, we’ll take that into consideration when suggesting a possible fit for you.
