If you are interested in any of the following hearing aids, contact Akamai Hearing Aids at (808) 201-4096 to schedule a consultation.
Completely in Canal (CIC)
Most people who want their hearing aid to be invisible choose our CIC. This is because, for most patients, it is invisible or very difficult to see. However, another model may be right for patients who have very small ear canals, as this model may not fit comfortably for those who do. The quality and range of fitting is exceptional. We can fit these models to treat mild to very severe hearing loss with virtually no feedback. The comfort and added ease of inserting and taking out these hearing aids are great features. In addition, using these hearing aids for a variety of activities, such as speaking on the phone, now makes it practically effortless to do so.
In The Canal (ITC)
This model of hearing aid is perfect for patients who have difficulty with smaller models. It is a little larger than a CIC and we can often add features such as manual push buttons that a smaller instrument just doesn’t have the room for. This model is completely automatic and easy to insert and remove, thereby making it one of our most popular in stock.
In The Ear (ITE)
The advantage of this custom-made product is that a large size battery can be used. Therefore, you can hear better for much longer without having to replace the batteries. Also, because of its size, many manual push buttons and even volume wheels are easily added. This allows you to have more control over your hearing abilities and you can customize the hearing aids to your preferences. Though most hearing aids are automatic, some patients like having those manual options available in order to achieve optimum quality and comfort.
Behind The Ear (BTE)
This is our most popular instrument for our patients. It comes in very small sizes and is incredibly comfortable to wear. Most people forget they’re even wearing hearing aids due to this model’s small size and maximum comfort. An added feature is that it is almost invisible to the eye, tucking behind most ears with ease. You can go about your daily activities with significantly improved hearing and have nobody even notice your hearing aids! This instrument is fitted for patients with mild to severe hearing loss and is great for activities such as using the telephone or watching television.
