Hearing Aid Styles

From larger devices that are easier to handle, to tiny, invisible, or nearly invisible devices that are concealed within the ear canal, Jorgensen Hearing Center has options sure to meet your hearing or cosmetic needs.

Today’s hearing aids come in a variety of shapes and styles — and are now more comfortable and easy to use than ever before. Most all of our hearing aids are available in the full range of fitting styles you’ll see below.

All hearing aids consist of three basic components: a microphone, an amplifier, and a speaker (also called the “receiver”). Where these are placed on the device varies by style, as does the internal circuitry that determines the sound quality and critical sound-processing features — like background noise reduction.
