    As you shop for a hearing aid, you will see several styles that may appeal to you, but will probably wonder what the differences are between them all. Before you buy any particular product, you should get to know what separates each style from the others. This should help you choose the best option for your situation.

    A behind-the-ear hearing aid rests behind the ears, and the piece that is highly visible to others can amplify sounds. These sounds are then sent to a plastic piece that sits within the ear, allowing you to hear the amplified sounds. The drawback of this style is that it is clearly visible to other people, but it is a reliable model for most people with auditory issues.

    Another style sits completely in the ear, and ranges in size. The full shell kind is obvious to others, and it is best for people with anywhere from mild to severe deafness. The benefit of this option is that the batteries are larger, and will therefore last longer than many other styles. Also, this option has a volume control. However, you may hear noise from the wind when you wear this device.

    You can also get a hearing aid that sits within the ear canal. This is an excellent choice for those who wish their device to be as discrete as possible. Because it is small and mostly hidden inside the ear, the unit will not be very visible to other people. In addition, it is good for when you talk on the phone, and it will not usually pick up wind noise. However, there is no volume control with it, and this type of device is often hard to handle and easy to lose because of it's small size. Fortunately, there are a few varieties available when it comes to size, depending on how hidden you want it to be.

    These are just the most common options when it comes to getting a hearing aid. Your doctor can tell you which one would be best for you. In addition, you can often choose one that is custom made, sized specifically for your ears, and often combining a mix of the benefits of each of these devices. You should do some research ahead of time, and also think about how apparent you want your hearing aid to be. You can then tell your doctor your preferences, and find out the best option for you.
