Introducing The World’s Most Powerful Hearing Aids

Oticon Xceed hearing aid

Oticon has some of the most technologically advanced hearing aids on the market today. Along with BrainHearing technology and Own Voice Processing, Oticon has recently released three new hearing aids to provide you with a seamless listening experience.

The Oticon Xceed and the Xceed Play are the most powerful hearing aids for adults and children with severe-to-profound hearing loss. They both offer 360⁰ access to speech without the interference of background noise. This allows for a better listening experience as well as improved learning for children. The Xceed and Xceed Play feature groundbreaking technology that reduces feedback, such as static or whistling, so you can hear clearer and with better attention. Adults and children can control these devices straight from their smartphones through an app, creating more control and improved usability. The Xceed for adults comes in a variety of colors to match your skin tone or hair color while the Xceed Play includes bright, fun colors in addition to the neutral tones for younger users.

Oticon CROS hearing aids offer a revolutionary 360⁰ sound experience for those with single-sided deafness. CROS hearing aids include a transmitter with a microphone that wirelessly picks up sound and sends it from your poorer ear to your better ear with a hearing aid. This allows you to easily engage in conversations in different environments. Oticon CROS hearing aids feature OpenSoundNavigator and TwinLink dual-streaming technology so you can hear from all directions. This gives you the freedom to do what you love while enjoying a more natural listening experience.

Hearing Aid Styles

We carry all styles of hearing aids, including custom-fit hearing aids such as the small invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) style, as well as behind-the-ear (BTE) and receiver-in-the-canal (RIC). Which hearing aid style is right depends on the patient. Some styles are better suited for more severe hearing loss, more active lifestyles, and different aesthetic preferences. We are happy to demonstrate what each hearing aid style looks like on our own ears so patients can make a decision — and they are usually pleasantly surprised by how subtle modern hearing aids can be.

While we are willing to fit any style, most patients choose the receiver-in-canal style because people tend to find it more comfortable, it gives options such as rechargeability, and typically one's own voice sounds more natural.

It's important to note that hearing aid styles are all virtually the same price, so we'll work with you to make a decision based on your lifestyle. (Cost is dependent on how sophisticated the technology inside the hearing aid is, rather than the shape of the hearing aid itself.) We offer a 30-day trial period for all hearing aids so you can be confident in your choice to wear hearing aids.

Hearing Aid Maintenance

Working on hearing aid maintenance

Wearing hearing aids for the first time is an adjustment, so we follow you closely with 2–3 follow-up visits within the first month of your hearing aid fitting. Once you have adjusted and are thrilled with your hearing aids, we recommend six-month visits so we can clean and check your hearing aids, similar to a six-month dental cleaning. We'll also check your hearing once a year and adjust your hearing aids if necessary. Depending on the service plan included with your hearing aid purchase, your follow-up hearing aid care is included at no additional charge for 1–3 years.

Hearing Aid Care

When you first get your hearing aids, we will cover everything you need to know to be comfortable with the maintenance of your hearing aids. The most essential things to know are that you should keep your hearing aid clean and dry. Some people need to clean their hearing aids every day, while others may only need to do so every other day. Avoid getting your hearing aid wet. Try to remember not to wear hearing aids into the shower. Don't store them in a humid space like your bathroom, and keep hearing aids out of reach of any pets. We'll go over all of this and more at your hearing aid orientation, and we are always available to answer any questions you may have during the process.
