Level of Help
The first thing to remember is that none of the devices are as bulky as they once were, nor are they as unsightly. These devices have come a long way in being comfortable, easy to use, and inconspicuous. Even the behind-the-ear device is much smaller and much more comfortable than one would expect. Once you have removed the stigma associated with the old styles, you need to take a look at what you are most comfortable wearing. Like contacts for the eyes, inner ear aids are not for everyone. If someone has a problem with the thought of feeling an aid constantly in his or her ear, an over-the-ear product may be more suitable. However, people who prefer to have an aid that is not visible to the average person would prefer an aid that fits snugly in place. At this point, it is a matter of preference and should be treated as such. Since you will be benefiting from wearing your new hearing aid, it is important that you are comfortable all around.
