Electronic Shooters Protection

While it seems improbable that a hearing protector can close before the sound of a gunshot reaches the ear canal, that is exactly what electronic shooting protectors do. Sound takes time, albeit a fraction of second, to travel to the ear. The electronic sensor closes and opens a valve during shooting outings.

Hearing Protection

To best protect hearing today, using protection is recommended for everyone from the smallest child on up. Sound pollution has increased many times in the last century, so protection is needed more than ever. The two main types of hearing protection are earphones and earplugs. They offer protection against loud, sustained and concussive noise encountered daily or in special circumstances.

Hearing Aid Styles

The best hearing aid for you depends on several factors: the degree of hearing loss, size vs. power specifications, and your ability to handle small items on a daily basis. Here is an overview of styles:
  • In the ear (ITE): ITE hearing aids are powerful and offer many features. The ITE is an electric amplifier that fits in the outer ear.
  • Invisible in canal (IIC): IIC hearing devices are the smallest and lightest available. They are recommended for mild hearing loss.
  • Completely in canal (CIC): CIC aids are slightly larger than IIC but remain small and
  • powerful, and nearly invisible.
  • In the canal (ITC): This small hearing aid is recommended for mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
  • In the ear (ITE): A full shell is an earmold custom made to fit the outer ear. The electronics and battery are inserted in the shell and fit to the patient.
  • Behind the ear (BTE): Sometimes, it is necessary to put the electronics and battery in a compartment that sits behind the ear. A tube runs to the amplifier in the ear canal. The controls and battery are easier to use than smaller devices.
  • Mini BTE with slim tube and tip: This version of the BTE is smaller and lighter than the standard BTE. It is recommended for mild-to-profound hearing loss.
  • Receiver in the ear (RITE): RITE hearing aids offer a smaller behind the ear electronics package because the sound receiver is in the ear canal. These devices are recommended for mild to severe hearing loss.

rechargeable

Rechargeable Hearing Aids

The hearing device joined many other small devices in recent years that use rechargeable batteries. This is a very convenient way to use hearing aids since the batteries in non-rechargeable devices are small and some people have difficulty changing them. Rechargeable hearing aids are not available in the smaller sizes, so call Sandia Hearing Aids for answers to device questions.
