Our Mission: Coastal Audiology is dedicated to offering families improved quality of life through comprehensive and individualized hearing healthcare

 

Hearing Aids

Flex:trial


Flex: trial puts you directly in the driver's seat by letting you try the technology level recommended in your hearing evaluation for your own life, no strings attached. Flex:trial devices are programmed with your prescription and settings. After a length of time decided by you in conjunction with your Audiologist (typically 2-4 weeks), you can decide if amplification is right for you, if you wish to change to a different technology level, as well as what technology level is right for you based on details discovered during your trial.  Contact us for more information to determine if Flex:trial is right for you!


Flex:upgrade


With Flex: upgrade, you will never feel locked into any decision, knowing you can upgrade your hearing instruments to another technology level at any time. Changing needs don’t need to be a source of  anxiety for you. This has proven to be a great plan for individuals who ultimately want a higher technology but need to pay for it over time without financing through a third party such as CitiHealth.

Flex Trial & Flex Upgrade by Unitron

Hearing Aids tell people that what they say is important to you.

At Coastal Audiology, we continually strive to bring you the best products for your specific communication difficulties. Our Audiologist frequently participates in continuing education activities to stay up-to-date on current hearing instrument technology. We routinely fit products from eight well-known manufacturers to offer our patients a variety of solutions based on their hearing loss, lifestyle, budget, and communication needs.

Below you will find a brief overview of a few of the products we offer. Not all of the products featured may be appropriate for your degree of hearing loss. Please call our office at (912) 748-9494  to schedule an appointment so we may test your hearing and discuss what may be best for your individual situation.

Hearing Aid Demonstrations

If it is determined after your comprehensive hearing test that hearing aids are needed, we have demonstrations units appropriate for most hearing losses that we can customize for you, allowing you to actually hear what hearing aids can do for you.

Hear better, remember more, with less effort

Oticon Opn™ improves your ability to understand speech even in challenging environments by 30%, compared to the previous generation of hearing instruments. That means less listening effort for you. You don’t have to work as hard to understand, leaving more mental energy to remember what you hear. E
xceptionally fast processing speed makes it possible. Fifty (50) times faster than the previous generation. Scans your environment more than 100 times per second to distinguish speech from noise. Helps your hearing aids work together to identify where sounds are coming from. All to enable your brain to make sense of sound with less effort. So you enjoy a fuller, more natural soundscape. Watch the video below to learn more!















Special Considerations when Selecting Hearing Aids:

There are many factors to consider when selecting the right hearing aids for you. The information provided above is not a substitute for a comprehensive hearing evaluation and consultation.  At Coastal Audiology, we spend time discussing things such as:

            -How often are you in background noise, such as in a
             restaurant?
            -Are you frequently in environments where you perspire?
            -Are you self-conscious about the cosmetic aspect of hearing
             devices?

These are just a few of the imporant questions that come up during a hearing evaluation at Coastal Audiology that other facilities never bother to ask you. We are committed to finding the solution that best suits you, first based upon your hearing loss, then considering lifestyle, budget, and your listening needs.
