Custom Noise Plugs

Too often non-custom (e.g. foam) noise plugs are not properly inserted. This results in poor noise protection. Also, many find that non-custom solutions don’t fit comfortably. Custom noise plugs are designed for comfort and maximum effectiveness.

 

Custom Sleep plugs

These custom plugs are similar to custom noise plugs however, they are specially sculpted to ensure comfort when lying on your side.

 

Custom Musician Plugs

The issue with most noise plugs is that there is an unequal decrease of sound across the frequency spectrum. This leads to sound being softer but muffled. Musician plugs are filtered to achieve a flat or equal reduction of sound across the spectrum. This results in softer but also natural sound that is important when playing or listening to music.

 

Custom Swim Plugs

These custom plugs are designed with materials to best keep water out of the ear canal. Often these products are made to float.

There are hundreds of hearing aids to choose from today. However, there are only a handful of devices that are the most suitable for your unique hearing loss and needs. In order to help find the hearing aid that you will be most satisfied with, we begin with a discussion followed by a hearing test. The hearing test helps to define your hearing loss. The discussion helps to gather other important details necessary in the hearing aid selection.

Hearing Aid Style

There are 5 main styles of hearing aids: Receiver in the canal (RIC), completely in the canal (CIC), in the canal (ITC), in the ear (ITE), and behind the ear (BTE). There are often pros and cons to each style. It is critical that the style satisfy the hearing loss requirements (e.g. it is powerful enough), is acceptable from a cosmetic perspective, is manageable in terms of dexterity, has the necessary features, and has reasonable battery life. The knowledge and experience of the audiologist is critical in helping guide you towards the most suitable hearing aid style.

Hearing Aid Brand

East Coast Hearing is locally owned and truly independent. This means that we work with most hearing aid brands. This is rare these days. There are definite differences between brands in terms of sound processing and quality, physical design, controls, and features such as wireless connections with other devices including phones and TV. The following list includes the most common brands used at East Coast Hearing: Oticon, Phonak, Resound, Signia and Widex. The benefit of working with so many brands is that the patient is more likely to get the most suitable hearing aid and therefore the best possible outcome and satisfaction. Together the patient with the guidance of the audiologist select the hearing aid brand.
