Connect Hearing is the official hearing health partner of the Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
Do you think you might be suffering from hearing loss? Then act now! The first step towards a better quality of life is to visit your hearing care professional. A hearing test will show if you are actually suffering from hearing loss. If you are, your hearing care professional will explain the available options. Our online hearing screening will give you an initial indication of your hearing ability.
Connect Hearing is the the exclusive national hearing health partner of Diabetes Canada. Studies show that hearing loss is twice as common in people who have diabetes than in those who don’t. Through this partnership we have the opportunity, with Diabetes Canada, to bring awareness to the relationship between hearing loss and diabetes, ensuring that all Canadians are proactive in their health while actively aging.
Connect Hearing is proud to partner with national organizations like Canadian Automobile Association (CAA). From member discounts to battery deals; from exclusive screening events to partnering in health shows; we work together to proactively educate as many Canadians as possible about hearing loss.
Technology and performance options
Modern hearing aid technology may surprise you. Small and sleek, modern digital hearing aids have a built-in microchip. Using software, they are programmed to your individual hearing needs. It can be confusing, however, what exactly is meant when your hearing care professional recommends a hearing solution for you at the "standard performance level". Here, we explore the different levels of hearing technology at Connect Hearing and provide context for you in order to make an informed decision on your hearing care solutions.
At Connect Hearing there’s a reason we bring together the best hearing professionals in Canada with the most advanced hearing technology. Simply put, we believe every sound connects us to our world.
Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aids like the Lyric are worn deep in the ear canal. IICs are inserted directly into the ear canal and can be easily removed with a string. These hearing aids are a good choice if you lead a moderately to heavily active lifestyle—or if you do not want your hearing aids to be visible to others. While they are popular among hearing aid wearers, IICs may not be the best choice for users with more severe or profound hearing loss, since these hearing aids do not provide the same amount of power that other, larger models do.
Hearing aid brands
All hearing aids work according to the same principle: They pick up ambient noise, the sound is converted into electrical impulses and then forwarded, in a modulated form, to the ear. However, depending on the severity of the hearing loss and personal requirements, hearing aids can differ considerably. Not just in terms of shape and size, but also in terms of their properties and functions. Which is the best hearing aid for me? Take a look at what’s available!
