Hearing Aids in Birmingham

At Birmingham Speech & Hearing Associates, we believe every patient deserves personalized care based on their hearing loss and their individual needs. That's why we offer hearing devices from many major hearing aid manufacturers. Because we can choose from such a wide range of products, we're able to customize our recommendation to you, and you can be confident that any hearing device we suggest is the best fit.

Hearing aids offered at Birmingham Speech & Hearing Associates

We fit hearing aids from traditional manufacturers including Oticon, Starkey, Signia, ReSound, and Phonak. We also offer Lyric devices, which are a convenient and invisible option introduced in recent years. Every hearing aid brand has its own strengths, and the different manufacturers are always coming out with new technology that pushes the rest forward. We love how new evolutions from one company can lead to better products — and better experiences for patients like you — across the board.

We aren't a one-size-fits-all practice. Everything we do is personalized and customized to your needs. And that's true of our hearing aid recommendations, too. Before we can suggest what hearing aids we think will give you the best results, we consider things like what locations you spend time in, what listening environments you have trouble hearing in, how severe your hearing loss is, what kind of hearing loss you have, and your budget.

We gather this information from our conversations with you as well as the results of your hearing test. We'll go over your options and explain how each possibility will work in different listening environments. Selecting the right hearing aids is a collaborative effort between our team and you. Ultimately, the choice of whether to move forward with hearing aids or not is yours.

Types of Hearing Aids

Hearing aids generally can be categorized based on style (shape/size) and technology level. Style does not typically affect the price. Instead, cost is usually determined by the technology level you choose. We offer completely-in-canal (CIC), invisible-in-canal (IIC), in-the-canal (ITC), in-the-ear (ITE), behind-the-ear (BTE), and receiver-in-canal (RIC).

Our patients often choose the receiver-in-canal model because it's comfortable, powerful, and offers more features. RIC hearing aids come in rechargeable models and can frequently stream directly from phones or other Bluetooth-enabled devices. Custom-fit hearing aids may be more invisible, but generally speaking, you won't have these advanced features available.

Lyric Hearing Aids

Lyric hearing aids at Birmingham Speech & Hearing Associates

Lyric hearing aids are unlike any other hearing aid on the market. These are a completely invisible, hassle-free option that we place directly in your ear canal. For two months at a time, you can forget your Lyric hearing aids are even in your ears because you won't have to take them out to clean them or change a battery. At the end of that two months, you will come back to our office and we'll replace your hearing aids with another set. Birmingham Speech & Hearing Associates is the only Premiere Lyric provider in the Birmingham area. Lyric hearing aids aren't suitable for every hearing loss, but many people have found them to be a life-changer.

Technology Levels

Hearing aids can be purchased with different set levels of technology, depending on what you need your hearing aids to do. In general, more expensive hearing aids fare better in noisy environments, while less expensive hearing aids are most suited for calm, quiet environments. It's about where you spend your time and where you have the most trouble hearing.
