Hearing Aids at Lawson’s Hearing Center

We specialize in the most advanced hearing technology the industry has to offer. We believe in educating our patients about their hearing health, and we are dedicated to helping them find a solution that will improve their quality of life and keep people connected to what matters.

We work with many hearing aid manufacturers, including EarQ, Oticon, Signia, Siemens, and Starkey.

Choosing the Right Hearing Aid

There are many styles and options of hearing aids to choose from, and without the right professional it can seem overwhelming to know what kind of hearing aid you should choose. At Lawson’s Hearing Center, we are knowledgeable about every make and model of hearing aid available. We will help you find a hearing aid that will allow you to connect with the ones you love and to hear all the sounds that are important to you.

When recommending a hearing aid, there are FIVE factors we consider: 

Some hearing aids are better suited for more severe cases of hearing loss than others. When recommending a hearing aid, it’s important we consider the severity of your hearing loss and what your hearing needs are.

The second factor we consider is your lifestyle. If you live an active and busy lifestyle where you are around people often, in and out of complicated listening environments, then we often recommend a more advanced level of hearing aid technology to meet those lifestyle demands.

Many hearing aids can be custom fit to your unique ear shape, but some models cannot be customized. We will go over what is most comfortable for you depending on the size of your ear.

If you have a difficult time seeing and pressing small buttons, then certain models of hearing aids may not be a good fit for you.

Our desire is to help people the best way possible, and there are many technology levels at a variety of cost points that we may recommend. We will never recommend anything outside of your budget, or a hearing aid that won’t help you. You won’t be pressured to make a decision you don’t want to, because we believe the choice is yours.

Other Technology at Lawson's Hearing Center

Oticon Opn S™
Oticon OPN S Hearing Aids at Lawsons Hearing Center in Johnson City, NY
Oticon Opn S™ hearing aids help you break free of restrictions and join the conversation in difficult listening environments. Previous hearing aids dealt with noisy environments by focusing on one speaker, such as a person right in front of you, while suppressing all other sounds.  The technology in Oticon Opn S™ gives you access to the relevant sounds around you, including speech, and puts you in charge of which sounds you want to focus on. The result of this life-changing technology is that you will understand speech even better, with less effort. Now, you can join in and keep up with conversations – even in challenging listening environments, like a family dinner or visiting a restaurant.
