At Hearing Excellence, we understand the importance of hearing and how it can affect a person’s quality of life. Choosing a hearing device can be daunting. We have over 5000 hearing devices in our portfolio. Our professionals work with you to navigate this maze and make it easier for you to choose the right device that is ideal for you.

What is a Hearing Aid?

A hearing aid is a small electronic device that can help people with hearing loss hear better. The device consists of three main parts: a microphone, an amplifier, and a speaker. The microphone picks up sound waves and converts them into electrical signals, which are then sent to the amplifier. The amplifier then boosts the strength of the electrical signals and sends them to the speaker, which converts them back into sound waves and sends them into the ear.

Hearing aids are available in a variety of styles and sizes, including behind-the-ear (BTE), in-the-ear (ITE), and completely-in-canal (CIC) models. BTE hearing aids are the most common type and are worn behind the ear with a small tube that goes into the ear canal. ITE hearing aids are custom-made to fit inside the ear, while CIC hearing aids are even smaller and fit completely inside the ear canal.

Why Does a Hearing Aid Need to be Prescribed?

A hearing aid is a medical device that requires a prescription from a licensed professional, such as an audiologist or hearing aid specialist. There are several reasons why a hearing aid needs to be prescribed:

  1. Determining the Cause and Severity of Hearing Loss: Before a hearing aid can be prescribed, it is important to determine the cause and severity of the hearing loss. An audiologist can perform a comprehensive hearing evaluation to determine the type and degree of hearing loss a person has. Based on the results of the evaluation, the audiologist can then recommend the most appropriate hearing aid for the individual’s needs.
  2. Programming and Adjusting the Device: Each person’s hearing loss is unique, and a hearing aid that works well for one person may not work well for another. A hearing aid prescription ensures that the device is programmed and adjusted to the individual’s specific hearing needs, which can help to maximize its effectiveness.
  3. Ongoing Care and Support: Hearing aids require regular maintenance and adjustments, and an audiologist can provide ongoing care and support to ensure that the device continues to meet the individual’s hearing needs over time. In addition, a hearing aid prescription may also provide access to warranties and repair services, which can help to protect the investment in the device.

At Hearing Excellence, we believe that a hearing aid prescription is essential to providing the best possible care and support to people with hearing loss. Our team of licensed professionals is dedicated to helping individuals with hearing loss find the most appropriate hearing aid for their needs, programming and adjusting the device to their specific hearing needs, and providing ongoing care and support to ensure that the device continues to meet their hearing needs over time.

If you or a loved one is experiencing hearing loss, it is important to seek the help of a licensed professional to determine the cause and severity of the hearing loss and to obtain a hearing aid prescription for the most appropriate device. At Hearing Excellence, we are committed to providing the best possible care and support to help people with hearing loss hear better and live a more fulfilling life.
