Bryce Hearing Services offers a wide range of different hearing aid types, and with a choice of styles and colours – we can help find the ideal one for you.
Our hearing assessments ensure that we provide the hearing solution that is perfectly suited to you and your lifestyle.
We work with industry-leading provider Phonak to offer the only extended wear hearing aid currently available: the Lyric. This device stays within the ear canal for long periods of time. (It does not need to be removed for sleeping or changing batteries). Find out more here.
You might be better suited to a ‘daily wear’ hearing aid, which is removed for bed and to change the batteries.
A wide range of daily wear models are available from Bryce Hearing Services in types that go ‘in the ear’ (ITE hearing aids), ‘behind the ear’ (BTE hearing aids) or have a ‘receiver in the canal’ (RIC hearing aids).
We can help find the perfect model for you, based on your hearing needs and your style preferences.
We’ll be happy to discuss all the options available to you, following an assessment by one of our hearing care professionals. Book an appointment today.
This is the world’s first hearing aid that is invisible when worn. Users are able to sleep, shower, exercise and talk on the phone with this type of hearing aid without having to make adjustments or use accessories. Lyric can be worn constantly for several weeks without having to change batteries. The placement of the equipment allows you to use the natural properties of your outer ear to improve localisation, feedback and occlusion.
This is the smallest model of hearing aid which is especially suitable if you have a mild to moderately severe hearing loss. It has a custom made shell and all vital electronics are placed individually in the shell, providing an optimum and small fit. The IIC is small enough to be placed very deep inside the ear canal, making it virtually invisible. Its placement furthermore allows users to still benefit from the natural shape of the ear for better localisation of sounds. An IIC therefore also has a big aesthetic advantage: No one can actually see that you are wearing a hearing aid.
For easy everyday removal, the IIC has a small extension cord attached to the outside. The IIC model works fully automatically.
The CIC is one of the smallest hearing aid models and is especially suitable if you have a mild to moderate hearing loss. It is a custom made shell that contains all the electronic components. The shell is placed deeply in the ear canal, making the hearing aid almost invisible. A CIC therefore has a big aestheic advantage: No one can actually see that you are wearing a hearing aid. For easy everyday remova, the CIC has a small extension cord attacted to the outside. A CIC model works fully automatically.
This hearing aid is suited to those with mild to mildly severe hearing loss. ITC hearing aids are available in four different technology types including – 3 Series, WiSeries, X Series & Ignite. Each type of technology provides slightly different features; this means that the correct technology can be chosen to suit each individual.
The receiver-in-canal (RIC) model is a newer development in hearing aids and is suitable for mild to severe hearing loss. Compared to a classic behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid, the receiver of the RIC (the loudspeaker) is placed in the ear-tip instead of in the housing, thereby reducing its size. The RIC model consists of three parts: The housing, which sits behind the ear, and a thin earwire connecting the housing to the receiver. The receiver goes directly into the ear canal. The RIC model is a very discreet, yet powerful hearing aid, which works fully automatically.
The classic behind-the-ear model is the choice if you have a severe hearing loss or if you have very small ear canals, which makes it difficult to fit an entire hearing aid into your ear. All the electronic components of a classic BTE model are located in a housing placed behind your ear. A slim plastic tube with an earmould in the end directs the amplified sound fromk the hearing aid into your ear. Manual controls for volume and program change are placed on the top side of the hearing aid for easy user access. Depending on the model, BTE hearing aids can moreover often be fitted with an open fit solution. This means that the ear-tip is made with compensatory measures so as to optimise the sound processing.
