Every hearing loss is as unique as the individual it's connected to. When it comes to something as important as your hearing, you deserve care from someone who takes a personal approach to treating your hearing loss. At Cumberland Hearing Aid Center, we are determined to find the hearing solution that's right for you.
We want to hear about your experiences and what you think about your hearing situation. Our role is to support you and help you make a decision about how to treat your hearing loss.
Choosing the right hearing aids starts with a conversation. In order to know what you need out of hearing aids, we have to understand where you're coming from. Hearing aids are personal, and they need to be the perfect fit for your lifestyle and the severity of your hearing loss. To narrow down what hearing aids we're going to recommend for you, we talk about:
We take a look at all the pieces of your life to decide which hearing aid would best fit you. We won't pressure you to spend more than you can afford, and we won't press more expensive technology on you than you need. We'll be honest with you if we think you would truly benefit from more advanced technology so you can decide what to do.
Cumberland Hearing Aid Center is an independent hearing aid practice. We carry the brands we believe will best serve our clients. Although we can fit and clean just about any major hearing aid manufacturer, we’ve changed which brands we focus on based on technological improvements. We work primarily with Signia because we love that they have two processors, one to manage your own voice and one to manage what you hear in the world around you. We also work with brands such as Starkey, who offers outstanding noise reduction.
The cost of hearing aids depends not on how large or small they are but on the level of technology inside them. More sophisticated technology comes with a higher price tag but works better in noisy environments, so it's perfect for people who are still active at work and socially engaged. We can go over the relative cost and power of each hearing aid to help you make a decision.
Hearing aid style is a matter of personal preference as well as what's best for your hearing loss. We tend to recommend receiver-in-canal (RIC) styles because they are comfortable, deliver excellent sound quality, and are more versatile. One big advantage of the RIC hearing aids is that we can upgrade the receiver if your hearing loss advances, so your hearing aids will grow with you and you won't need to buy a new pair as soon.
Introducing The World’s Most Powerful Hearing Aids
Oticon has some of the most technologically advanced hearing aids on the market today. Along with BrainHearing technology and Own Voice Processing, Oticon has recently released three new hearing aids to provide you with a seamless listening experience.
The Oticon Xceed and the Xceed Play are the most powerful hearing aids for adults and children with severe-to-profound hearing loss. They both offer 360⁰ access to speech without the interference of background noise. This allows for a better listening experience as well as improved learning for children. The Xceed and Xceed Play feature groundbreaking technology that reduces feedback, such as static or whistling, so you can hear clearer and with better attention. Adults and children can control these devices straight from their smartphones through an app, creating more control and improved usability. The Xceed for adults comes in a variety of colors to match your skin tone or hair color while the Xceed Play includes bright, fun colors in addition to the neutral tones for younger users.
Oticon CROS hearing aids offer a revolutionary 360⁰ sound experience for those with single-sided deafness. CROS hearing aids include a transmitter with a microphone that wirelessly picks up sound and sends it from your poorer ear to your better ear with a hearing aid. This allows you to easily engage in conversations in different environments. Oticon CROS hearing aids feature OpenSoundNavigator and TwinLink dual-streaming technology so you can hear from all directions. This gives you the freedom to do what you love while enjoying a more natural listening experience.
