“There are many different types of styles, but you can group them loosely into two categories: in-the-ear and behind-the-ear hearing aids. Behind-the-ear hearing aids offer certain advantages such as not plugging up the ear and they are more sturdy in the face of ear canal moisture or earwax that often damage or clog in-the-ear hearing aids.
Now with today’s technology, behind-the-ear hearing aids are almost as discreet or more discreet than certain in-the-ear hearing aid models and that’s the type of hearing aids MDHearingAid offers.
One of the major shortcomings of in-the-ear hearing aids is that everybody’s ear canal is a different shape. That makes it difficult to buy an in-the-ear hearing aid that’s not custom fit for you because it will have a lot of problems with fit, feedback, and discomfort. All of these problems are not there with behind-the-ear hearing aids.”
