Which is the best hearing aid?

Hearing aids come in a large range of shapes and sizes, with lots of different features and functions. Figuring out what devices are best for you can be a challenge, which is where a hearing healthcare professional can help. They will make recommendations based on your personal requirements and their clinical expertise.
When considering hearing aids, you should consider the shape and size as well as the specific features. Larger hearing aids may be easier to handle for people with dexterity concerns, and rechargeable hearing aids may be less difficult to manage than needing to replace a small battery every week.
Some hearing aid styles are less suitable for people with small ear canals or who produce a lot of ear wax, while very small hearing aids may be preferable for people who prefer to keep their hearing loss undercover.
When looking at the features a particular hearing aid can offer, you should consider the different listening environments you are in, and how important better hearing in for each situation.
Your hearing healthcare professional will to take you through a range of options and will make recommendations about the style, the performance and the price. But ultimately the best hearing aid is the one that you find most comfortable, and that helps you enjoy the world you love.

Tinnitus is a subjective, involuntary sensation of sound which is not present in the external environment. It can be heard as a ringing, buzzing, hissing, whistling, throbbing, booming, clicking, roaring or cicada-like noise.  Tinnitus can be a single sound or a number of different sounds.  It can be present all the time or only occasionally, and can vary in intensity.
Tinnitus affects 10-15% of people. Some people experience tinnitus which goes away by itself. Other people have symptoms that stay with them. In about 3% of the people with tinnitus, quality of life is affected, and interventions are needed.
You do not have to put up with ringing in the ears or ‘just learn to live with tinnitus’. Triton Hearing offers products and advice to help you manage the symptoms of tinnitus, so you can reconnect with the world you love.
