Behind-the-ear hearing aids are the most common type that people picture when thinking about hearing aids and for good reason. This style of hearing aid is powerful which allows anyone with any amount of hearing loss to get their hearing back. If you want the best possible technology in a behind-the-ear hearing aid, then you want to ask for Audibel’s A4 iQ technology.

Here are some of the features of these best behind-the-ear hearing aids:

Easy Transition to Hearing Aids

For many people, making the transition to hearing aids can be a difficult one. Sounds don’t sound the same way they remember them, and there’s a reason for that. The brain is what translates the sound waves into sounds, but when you’ve had hearing loss for a long period of time, the brain “forgets” how to hear certain sounds. That means when the sound is heard again, it doesn’t sound right.

This technology helps make the transition to hearing again easy by providing you with gradual adjustments to your hearing aids, giving your brain time to re-learn sounds as they’re reintroduced. These best behind-the-ear hearing aids also give you extreme clarity when it comes to quiet sounds so they’ll be exactly as your brain remembered them.

Hear Even in Challenging Environments

Challenging environments are those where there is a lot of background noise. Many hearing aids simply amplify all the sounds that are coming in, which makes it difficult to focus on the conversation that you want to hear. However, with these best-in-class behind-the-ear hearing aids, you get Acuity Immersion Directionality which helps you hear what you want to hear while tuning out background noise.

Wireless Streaming

As long as it has Bluetooth technology, you can connect it with your hearing aids and stream the sound directly to your ears. This goes for phone calls, music devices, and even televisions. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the things you love without having to crank up the volume. All you need is one of several SurfLink devices so you can quickly and easily stream anything.

In addition to being able to hear your favorite music well, you’ll be able to enjoy it without the distortion that many other hearing aid wearers experience. This is because the Audibel A4 iQ technology does not just allow you to hear voices more clearly. It also provides a crystal-clear music-listening experience that you simply don’t get with most hearing aids.


There’s no getting around the fact that hearing aids are expensive, which is why you should look for ones that will last. With these behind-the-ear hearing aids, you get just that because they come with Surface NanoShield. This innovative technology repels wax, water, and moisture, the three things that break down hearing aids, so that they last longer and provide you with more value.

No Feedback

Although most behind-the-ear hearing aids don’t have a huge problem with feedback because the receiver and the amplifier are kept separate, there’s still a chance that you would experience a whistling or buzzing noise, especially when encountering wind. With this technology, however, you don’t have to worry about feedback so you can simply enjoy hearing well again.

Tinnitus-Treating Technology

If you’re like many hearing loss sufferers, you experience tinnitus in addition to hearing loss. This ringing in the ears is annoying and distracting. However, through the right hearing aid technology, you can get relief from tinnitus. These hearing aids contain Advanced Multiflex Tinnitus Technology which allows you to get the customizable relief that you need in any situation.
