Hearing aid or personal sound amplifier?

The differences and how to decide.

If you have a specific type of hearing loss or trouble hearing certain frequencies, a hearing aid might be right for you. Here are just a few of the features a hearing aid can offer:

  • Often tailored to the frequencies associated with specific hearing loss
  • Typically allow for more advanced control based on environmental noise
  • Personalized settings allow you to find the perfect solution
  • More products offer direct audio connectivity for music and phone calls

While PSAPs will usually not be tailored to your personal hearing needs or fitted to your ear, there are benefits to consider, such as:

  • Many models feature noise-cancelling technology
  • Some products let you personalize TV volume levels
  • PSAPs can be a cost-effective choice

Understanding hearing loss.

Hearing loss can affect us in a number of ways. Our communication can become challenged, we can withdraw socially, and we can even miss out on educational or job opportunities. The technology at Best Buy can help.

Consider a few questions before deciding on your options:

  • Do you often think people are mumbling?
  • Are you nodding along during conversations even when you haven’t heard clearly?
  • Do you have trouble hearing in crowded spaces?
  • Have you frequently been exposed to loud environments (concerts, sports venues, etc.)?

Fit types: Behind-the-ear or in-the-ear?

Find out which fit is right for you.

Behind-the-ear hearing devices.

Behind-the-ear hearing devices are the most common fit design.
They’re easy to use and care for and can help in many everyday
situations. You’ll find models that feature:

  • Speakers that rest in the ear while the receiver fits behind
  • Longer battery life than some in-ear models
  • Easy handling due to their larger size

In-ear hearing devices.

Advances in the technology built into these types of hearing
devices — as well as their improved look — have led to growing
popularity of in-ear models. Here are some of the features you can find:

  • Discreet (almost invisible) designs
  • Personalized frequency and volume settings
  • Open fit designs that allow for natural sound
  • Incredible audio fidelity

Hearing device technology.

Some features to consider.

Wireless connectivity.

More and more devices these days feature smart technology that allows them to be controlled via an app on your smartphone. This makes it easy to adjust settings like noise cancellation or volume.

Background noise cancellation.

One of the biggest obstacles with hearing loss is background noise. Devices with noise-cancelling technology can detect and reduce this noise to help improve your experience.

 

Moisture protection.

Any device that’s worn on or near your body during everyday use can be susceptible to moisture intrusion. Look for designs featuring moisture protection to help protect your product.

Battery life and technology.

Before you purchase, decide whether you’d like a product that you can recharge at night or one with batteries you’ll need to replace from time to time.

Direct audio connection.

This feature connects your hearing aid or amplifier directly to your compatible smartphone or speakers, so you can listen to music directly through your hearing device.
