Technology at Virtue Hearing Aid Center

Virtue Hearing carries hearing aids from all major manufacturers, including Signia, EarQ, Starkey, ReSound, Oticon, Widex, and Phonak. This enables us to pick the right hearing aid for your lifestyle and your hearing loss, rather than being limited to a particular brand.

Right now we are especially impressed with how Signia is leading the pack with new technology, like their Own Voice Processing, which reduces the sound of your speaking voice in your ears so you can focus better on what other people are saying. The other brands each have their own specialty and benefits.

New Hearing aid technology from Virtue Hearing

We believe it is important to stay ahead of the latest trends and technology in the hearing industry so we can continue to provide our patients with the expert care they deserve. We recently attended a two-day training event with EarQ and Signia in New Orleans, Louisiana, where we learned about how we can offer our patients an even better hearing healthcare experience.

We were also the first in our area to be trained on the newest Signia technology, including the Styletto. The Styletto is a unique new hearing aid that combines a stylish design with high-tech hearing power. This is a device that is transforming the image of hearing aids, and we are excited to be able to share it with you.

Finding the right hearing aid depends on your hearing loss and your lifestyle. There are so many different brands, styles, and level of technology out there that we're sure to find one that suits your needs as well as your budget.

The cost of hearing aids is largely dependent on the level of technology you need. These days, all hearing aids provide clear, crisp sound. If you tend to stay in quiet environments and want hearing aids to help you speak with friends and family, you probably only need a simpler level of technology.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, highly advanced hearing aids offer Bluetooth connectivity to your phone, your television, and other devices. Many of these technologically sophisticated hearing aids can be programmed on-the-fly with a phone app or from a distance by our office. These hearing aids are a good fit for people who stay very active, present in meetings at work, attend sporting events or concerts, or need a lot out of their hearing aids.

The style of your hearing aids won't have a major impact on the price, so you can pick the one that is most comfortable and works best for your particular hearing loss. We tend to find that the receiver-in-the-canal style is most comfortable for the largest number of people, but others may suit you for different reasons.

Hearing Aid Styles

Behind-the-ear (BTE) This hearing aid is hidden behind the ear and has a clear tube that hooks around the top. BTE hearing aid
Receiver-in-the-ear (RIC) Similar to the BTE, this sits behind the ear, but has a receiver that is inserted into the ear canal. Received in canal hearing aid
In-the-ear (ITE) This hearing aid sits on the outer portion of the inner ear. ITE hearing aid
In-the-canal (ITC) This hearing aid is fitted and sits inside of the ear canal. ITC hearing aid
Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) This is almost the smallest hearing device. It requires a custom fitting and is inserted deep into the ear canal. CIC hearing aid
Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) The absolutely smallest style aside from implantable options, this is fit so deep that it can't be seen. IIC hearing aid

Adjusting to Hearing Aids

With some styles of hearing aids, you may not have trouble at all adjusting. However, if you find that you're having a harder time, start by wearing them for an hour a day and slowly increase how long you wear them. The more you wear them, the more you're going to get used to them.

When you start wearing glasses, you can always feel them on your face, but then you eventually don't even know they're there; the same thing happens with the sensation of hearing aids in your ears. New hearing aids are very light, very slim, and much more comfortable than people might expect.

Taking Care of Your Hearing Aids

Be good to your hearing aids and they'll be good to you. Keep them clean and dry. We recommend cleaning them every day; we'll show you how to do that during your consultation. Never go swimming with your hearing aids in, and try to stay out of wet or humid situations.

If you do something such as accidentally step into the shower while wearing your hearing aids, they'll probably be all right; just remove them as soon as you realize you are still wearing them, and make sure to let them dry completely. Don't store them in your bathroom or other moist places overnight. Be careful when you handle your hearing aids — they are delicate machines. And don't leave them anywhere a pet might be able to reach them.

Secure Warranty at Virtue Hearing

Secure 4-Year Warranty

We carry EarQ hearing aids, which is another thing that makes us different than many other hearing aid providers in the area. Through EarQ, we are able to carry the Secure 4-Year Warranty on all EarQ hearing aids, which surpasses the standard 2- or 3-year warranty that most manufacturers would offer. By utilizing this warranty you are also able to have your hearing aids serviced by any other EarQ provider in the country, which is great news if you're ever planning a trip!

Changing hearing aid batteries

Changing the Batteries

Modern hearing aids will let you know when it's time to change your batteries through warning notifications. Actual battery life depends on how much you use your hearing aids and whether you use Bluetooth streaming, but in general you can expect to change batteries every 7-10 days. Some hearing aids feature rechargeable batteries, which is a great option if you would rather not fiddle with batteries yourself.

Make Your Appointment

We offer free hearing tests, free consultations, and a 14-day free hearing aid trial for all new patients!
