Hearing aid technology has greatly advanced, and because of the leaps in technology, there are many options for users. It can be overwhelming to choose the right hearing aid. So, it begs the question, are all hearing aids are the same?
No, they are not, as many things separate each hearing aid style. Sometimes the difference may be small, but they are important to consider. Let’s explore a few of the features you may or may not be interested in when shopping for hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Type
There are three main types of hearing aids, they include:
Behind-the-ear hearing aids loop around your ear. They are not overly bulky, but behind-the-ear hearing aids can be more noticeable. These devices are most often associated with older models of hearing aids we grew up seeing our grandparents wear.
In the Ear Devices
In-the-ear devices are placed just inside the opening of the ear, similar to an earplug. These devices are practically invisible to others but still accessible to charge and remove when not needed or wanted.

In-the-canal hearing aids are extremely small and just about invisible; some models can even stay in the ear for an extended period without charging or replacing batteries.
Besides advances in style, hearing aids come with several features. Hearing aids can have features like:
