Hearing Aids

Those who treat hearing loss with hearing aids have better overall health.

Hearing Aids in Albuquerque, NM

Around 48 million people in the U.S. have hearing loss to some degree, yet a large number of people don’t treat it. Hearing aids have shown to improve quality of life by providing the wearer with clearer communication, better mental clarity, and increased confidence. The hearing aids we carry at Albuquerque Speech Language Hearing Center are incredibly advanced and come in a variety of styles and colors.

Because we are a private hearing clinic, we have the ability to work with all the major hearing aid manufacturers. This means we can better recommend devices that can be custom tailored to you.

Hearing Aid Styles

We carry all styles of hearing aids for sale, including the following:

Hearing Aid Technology

Today’s hearing aids have incredible features, such as Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable batteries, and in some models, artificial intelligence. Hearing aids can help you hear better with more clarity, even in difficult situations, such as a crowded room or restaurant.

Many devices now have Bluetooth connectivity, so you can stream phone calls, music, and other audio directly to your hearing aids. Bluetooth hearing aids make it easier than ever to stay connected, and they can even be controlled through a corresponding app on your smartphone.

Rechargeable hearing aids are also growing in popularity. Instead of having to change small hearing aid batteries, you simply place your devices in their charging station at night while you sleep and in the morning, you’ll have fully charged aids. These are a great option for those who have trouble changing small batteries or for those who can’t have their batteries die unexpectedly.

No matter what kind of technology you are searching for in a hearing aid, we have an option for you.

Implantable Hearing Devices

Depending on the severity of your hearing loss and the condition of your cochlea, sometimes hearing aids are not enough. For patients who have severe to profound hearing loss with little to no speech awareness, an implantable device may be an option.

Implantable hearing devices are surgically implanted instruments designed to improve the transmission of sound vibrations. The most common types of implants are cochlear implants, bone anchored hearing aids, and auditory brainstem implants.

To determine if you are a candidate for an implantable hearing device, please contact us for an appointment. We can perform cochlear mapping, testing, and follow-up services for implantable devices. If you are a candidate, we will refer you to a specialist for the surgery aspect.

OTC Hearing Aids

As of August 2022, the FDA issued a final rule that establishes a new service delivery model and category of hearing aids. These are now known as over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids.

What Are OTC Hearing Aids?

OTC hearing aids are amplification devices that can be purchased without a prescription, over-the-counter. These devices are self-fit and designed for adults 18+ who have mild hearing loss in both ears. OTC hearing aids are not custom fit or programmed to your unique hearing loss, they are a one-size fits all option.

The first step to treating your hearing loss is always to see a hearing care professional. Schedule an appointment today.
