At Sonik Hearing Care Services, we aim to be the one-stop-shop for our patients who have hearing loss and benefit from hearing aids. With technology advancing at an ever-increasing pace, we work to stay up to date with the latest gadgets, accessories and products that can plug and play with hearing aids and make life for those with hearing loss fuller and more enjoyable.
Styles of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids are available in many different sizes and styles thanks to advancements in digital technology and miniaturization of the internal components. Many of today's hearing aids are considered sleek, compact, and innovative - offering solutions to a wide range of hearing aid wearers. We understand that hearing aids aren’t one-size-fits-all solutions.
Various hearing aid styles we offer:
- In-the-ear (ITE): These devices are discreet and worn in the ear, but are still larger than those worn in the canal and easier to handle for individuals with dexterity issues.
- Invisible-in-canal (IIC): These are the most private hearing aids and sit in the canal. They are smaller and are not recommended for individuals with dexterity issues.
- Completely-in-canal (CIC): Another discreet option, these hearing aids are worn completely in the canal and are small in size.
- In-the-canal (ITC): Worn in the canal but slightly larger than the other canal counterparts, these hearing aids offer privacy, but are easier to handle.
- Behind-the-ear (BTE): These come in a variety of different style options and are larger than ITE or ITC hearing aids. They are powerful and recommended for people with issues handling smaller devices.
While hearing loss often occurs with age, protecting one’s hearing is the best and most effective way to prevent hearing loss. We provide many types of devices that help individuals protect their ears in especially noisy or harsh environments.
- Earplugs and Earmolds for Hunting: This protection is ideal for individuals who partake in hunting and shooting.
- Earplugs and Earmolds for Music: This hearing protection will allow individuals to still hear the music they need and want, but will block out dangerous levels.
- Earplugs and Earmolds for Swimming: This protection is made for people who swim and are designed to keep water from entering the ear canal.
- iCustom: This is custom protection made specifically for your ear to keep damaging sounds out from a number of sources.
- DefendEar 1: This is another customized option to keep loud sounds out while protecting hearing.
- DefendEar 2: This option can be used by hunters and shooters alike and provides full hearing protection.
- DefendEar Hunter: This protection is designed specifically for hunters and gun enthusiasts and will keep damaging noises from entering the ear canal.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids
We know our patients like to stay up-to-date with technology, which is why we offer hearing aids that are Bluetooth-capable, enabling users to easily talk on the phone, listen to music and more.
Captioned telephones work like any other telephones, enabling a person talking on it to hold a regular conversation with the individual on the other end. Captel, or captioned telephones, are better, however, as they display every word the caller says throughout the conversation. CapTel phone users can listen to the caller or may read the written captions in the Captel’s bright window display.
