Hearing Aid Ratings - Hearing Aid Reviews

Whilst trying to find a hearing aid instrument for our mother, we found a lot of interesting facts that could possibly help others get to know more about the world of hearing loss. Here we will show how we did the hearing aid comparisons and some hearing aid ratings. Join us in the quest of reviewing and comparing the best hearing aids.

Who Invented The Hearing Aid Device - Inventor

Exactly who invented the hearing aid first, that leads to today's modern small hearing aid devices. Who is the inventor of the hearing aid?

After doing much research, we found out that it could be Alfonzo Miltmore who first came up with Akoulathon, an electric hearing aid which reach production in 1898. In 1900, Hutchison and Kelley then helped improved on the existing patent hearing aid and made the hearing aid more reliable and smaller in scale.

And the rest is history. But on About.com, it is stated that Dr Miller Reese Hutchinson, is actually the first one to invent the electrical hearing aid in 1902. The Acousticon Hearing Aid was what he invented.

So it is hard to say who is the first. I say the one with the patent approved first.

Trendy Funky Hearing Aids

Some of our readers have been asking us to find some trendy and funky hearing aids that are available in the market now, so we went out to find a couple.

Siemens Vibe hearing aid has got bluetooth enabled function and it looks so unique that it does not even look like a hearing aid. Wearing it, your ear canal is left open, for greater comfort. It’s the first one that fits securely into the crest of the ear. And there’s nothing behind your ear. So Vibe won’t interfere with your eyeglasses or other devices. In fact, Vibe’s fit is so natural, you’ll forget it’s there.

Oticon Delta hearing aid is one of the few that allows users to pick the shells of the device. From zebra skin to mother of pearl colour, it is definitely one of the top choice to the adventurous wearers. I heard some people are actually choosing the colors according to their hair colors.

Widex Passion hearing aid is also offering many color range for customers to choose from. One main advantages of Widex Passion is, it is the world’s smallest Receiver-In-Canal (RIC) hearing instrument - it is so small and discreet that it seems virtually invisible. Choose a stylish color to match your character.

Hope this helps make your life a little more colorful!
