Duncan Hearing Healthcare has so many options available that choosing the perfect prescription hearing aid can be overwhelming. Our trustworthy team has top-level technical knowledge to help make it easier.

Thanks to our comprehensive assessment, professional guidance, fitting programming, and consistent follow-up care, we make a big difference in how you view your hearing aid investment.

The Different Types of Prescription Hearing Aids

Today’s modern hearing aids are streamlined, user-friendly, and so discrete that only those who know you wear a hearing aid will be able to see it. Micro-digital technology improves hearing aid performance and allows for placing that technology in a smaller package.

Advancements in material technology also contribute to the comfort and discreet wearing of prescription hearing aids, adding the capability for your hearing aid to match your skin tone or make a fashion statement, if that’s the way you choose to go.

Along with your choice of style and color, some of our hearing aids also include a variety of connectivity options and a broad range of apps.

These innovations make it possible to use your smartphone to adjust your hearing aid or make it easier to enjoy phone conversations direct to your hearing device. These advanced technologies are making hearing aids cool, eliminating any remaining stigmas associated with them.

Our hearing aid specialists in Fall River, Hyannis, and Dartmouth provide expert fitting, programming and adjustments, tech support, and ongoing follow-up care while providing guidance in choosing from our broad selection of brand name devices, including Widex, Oticon, Phonak, ReSound, Signia, Starkey, and more.
