Hearing Aids Q & A

How do I choose the best hearing aid?

You have many hearing aid options at Colorado West Otolaryngologists, so your provider guides you through each step. After your hearing aid evaluation and hearing test, they can help you narrow down your choices. 

Your provider recommends the best options based on your degree of hearing loss, manual dexterity, anatomical considerations, budget, and lifestyle needs. Then you can examine the different types of hearing aids to choose the one that’s best for you. 

What are the different types of hearing aids?

The audiology team at Colorado West Otolaryngologists offers eight different styles of hearing aids. Your options range from the smallest style available, which is virtually invisible, to the larger and more traditional style that tucks behind your ears.

In addition to a range of styles, the Colorado West Otolaryngologists team offers hearing aids from the top manufacturers, including:

  • Phonak
  • ReSound
  • Starkey
  • Signia
  • Unitron™
  • WidexⓇ
  • Oticon Ponto™ System


This diverse selection encompasses an array of hearing aid solutions for every age and lifestyle, as well as mild to profound hearing loss. 

What specialized features are available in hearing aids?

Today’s hearing aids come equipped with many special features, such as speech enhancement and automatic directionality. But BluetoothⓇ technology is one of the most popular features. 

With wireless connectivity through Bluetooth, you can use your hearing aid like a headset and stream audio from your television, smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Beyond the convenience of streaming, Bluetooth also improves the sound quality.

You can choose wireless control, using an app to change the volume or check the battery. Some apps also allow you to change the programming in your hearing aid, adjusting it on the run to fit your environment. 

Can I get hearing aids for children?

The Colorado West Otolaryngologists team offers a large choice of customized hearing aids for children. Children’s hearing aids have wireless technology that makes it easier for them in the classroom and connects with the FM systems most schools use for children with hearing loss.

Your child’s hearing aid can have changeable earmolds to accommodate their growth as well as safety features that prevent them from removing the batteries. Children can also have fun choosing from a variety of colors for behind-the-ear hearing aids.
