Hearing Aid Styles
The hearing care professional will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have, as well as taking the time to discuss all the various options with you.
It is important to choose a hearing aid that fits your lifestyle, your hearing needs and meet your aesthetic requirements. We offer a variety of hearing aid styles including:
Behind the Ear (BTE)
Sit behind the ear with a tube that is directed into an ear mold that sits inside the ear canal. These types of aids are quite discreet and are generally more durable due to the fact that the electrical components are housed outside of the ear.
Receiver in the Canal (RIC)
Similar in look to the Behind the Ear models, Receiver in the Canal hearing aids are smaller and more discreet. They also utilize open fit technology that requires only a small speaker to deliver sound.
Completely in the Canal (CIC)
Are discreet, with the device fitting completely into the ear canal.
Invisible in the Canal (IIC)
Sits in the canal, making it completely unnoticeable.
In the Canal/ Half Shell (ITC/HS)
Utilizes an ear mold that rests in the canal and fills the lower half of the outer ear.
Full Shell (FS)
Sit in the outer portion of the ear and feature easy to use controls.
