Hearing Aids in Niles, IL
At Hearing Professionals of Illinois, we understand that the prospect of having hearing loss and getting hearing aids can be overwhelming. Please remember that the decision to pursue hearing instruments is completely elective. It is a decision that should be made, based in large part, on how you are functioning and not solely on test results. In order to be a good candidate for hearing aids, you have to recognize that you are having a communication problem and want help. A person who is not motivated, or who is being pressured into this decision against their will, has little chance of being a successful hearing aid user.
In addition to motivation, there are many factors that help make a patient a successful hearing aid user. First, the patient should be thoroughly educated about hearing instrument technology and what features are the most appropriate for their hearing loss, listening environments and budget. Next, the patient needs to have realistic expectations as to what type of benefit they can expect from their hearing aids. Finally, the patient needs to understand that the process of adapting to hearing instruments can take a few weeks and generally requires several follow-up appointments. A successful hearing aid fitting is more likely when the patient has a good relationship with their audiologist, follows the audiologist’s instructions, and keeps the audiologist informed when any changes occur.

Hearing Aid Styles & Technology
The cost of hearing aids depends on the features and technology offered and not the size of the instrument. Hearing Professionals of Illinois offers the most popular hearing aid styles:
- Behind the ear (BTE) hearing aids consist of a hard case worn behind the ear and a receiver or earmold worn in the ear. The two components are connected by a slender tube.
- In the ear (ITE) or full shell hearing aids are made from a mold of your ear and are worn in the outer ear bowl.
- In the canal (ITC) hearing aids are worn inside the ear canal, and only a small portion of the device can be seen at the top of the canal. Like ITE devices, they are made from a mold of your ear canal.
- Invisible in canal (IIC) hearing aids are worn deeper in the ear canal, which is why they are referred to as invisible devices.
- Completely in canal (CIC) hearing aids are the smallest devices made. They are worn deep in the ear canal and are fitted with a small handle to aid in insertion and removal.
Advances in digital technology are applied to hearing aid technology for increasingly sophisticated devices. Multidirectional microphones and advanced processors can reduce the sounds behind you while amplifying the sounds before you, enabling you to hear conversation better in a noisy restaurant. Bluetooth-enabled devices allow you to stream the audio channel from other digital devices directly to your hearing aids.
Feedback suppression technology makes sure you hear clearly.
