    There are many types of hearing loss. An audiologist is the best person to help you decide which is the best for your specific hearing deficits.

    However, what I would suggest is that you take a look at the other link posted, and some of the various reviews online, and then go into your audiologist with a list of questions.

    Patients always feel best, and have the best results when they make an informed decision. Always.

    I’m very glad that you are deciding to wear a hearing aid – so many people don’t for various reasons, and they don’t realize how negatively not wearing one effects them.

    Good Luck

    The best hearing aids are ones that are chosen based on your hearing loss, listening needs and lifestyle. Consulting with an audiologist following a full hearing evaluation is the best way to determine the best hearing aids for you.

    Each manufacturer offers wonderful hearing aid solutions. They differ slightly in the algorithms they use; however you will want to go with a manufacturer your audiologist is most comfortable with and has found success with. Their ability to accurately fit the hearing aids on you ensures a successful hearing aid fitting.

    It all depends on what you’re looking for.

    I like Siemens for their rechargable battery system
    I like Unitron for their wireless CROS system
    I like Oticon for their Blue tooth system
    I like Phonak for their frequency shifting
    I like Starkey for their feedback manager and power CIC aids
    I like GN Resound for their entry-level low-price product

    It’s best that you see an audiologist who works with several companies so that you’re not limited.

    Miracle Ear is owned by Siemens
    Beltone is owned by GN Resound
