New technology provides discreet hearing aid option for SETX Seniors – Get Yours at Trinity Hearing and Balance Port Arthur

For Southeast Texas seniors suffering from hearing loss, there is help – right here in SETX from Trinity Hearing and Balance in Port Arthur.

If you are a Golden Triangle senior with hearing loss, you’re not alone. Nearly 20 percent of American adults suffer from hearing loss.

As you age, the possibility of hearing loss  for Southeast Texas seniors increases.

Despite the fact that many SETX seniors have hearing loss, they often wait years to get help. Only one in five people who would benefit from a hearing aid actually wear one. Many Golden Triangle seniors still think of hearing aids as the big, bulky models of the past. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

In fact, many of today’s top hearing aids are invisible to the naked eye.

If you’re an SETX senior with hearing loss and could benefit from wearing a hearing aid, here’s an overview of some of the latest discreet technology that can greatly improve the quality of your life.

AMPcfrom Starkey Hearing Technologies is designed specifically for first-time hearing aid users. About the size of a fingernail, AMP sits invisibly in a person’s ear canal and amplifies sound.

Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC). The IIC is the most advanced invisible technology on the market today. These aids – similar in size to a jelly bean – are custom fit to your ear canal and hearing loss. An IIC is placed deep in your ear, usually making it completely invisible to anyone else. The highest quality IICs are custom, digital and fully programmable.

Mini receiver-in-canal (RIC). People who want the benefits of an invisible hearing aid but can’t wear an aid that fits in their ear canal can choose a mini RIC. This aid resembles the shape of a more traditional hearing aid but it is nearly half the size. The mini RIC hides behind a person’s ear, making it nearly invisible. Despite its size, this hearing aid still offers the highest performance, power and features available.

The latest advancements in hearing aid technology for Southeast Texas seniors means you no longer have to be self-conscious about combating your hearing loss. To read more about each of these types of hearing aids and to learn how a hearing aid can improve your quality of life, visit
