STYLES for every need

      • Completely in the canal (CIC) or mini CIC- A completely-in-the-canal hearing aid is molded to fit inside your ear canal. It improves mild to moderate hearing loss in adults.

        • Is the smallest and least visible type

        • Is less likely to pick up wind noise

        • Uses very small batteries, which have shorter life and can be difficult to handle

        • Doesn’t contain extra features, such as volume control or a directional microphone

        • Is susceptible to earwax clogging.

      • In-the-canal (ITC) An in-the-canal (ITC) hearing aid is custom molded and fits partly in the ear canal. This style can improve mild to moderate hearing loss in adults.

        • Is less visible in the ear than larger styles

        • Includes features that won’t fit on completely-in-the-canal aids, but may be difficult to adjust due to its small size

        • Is susceptible to earwax clogging

      • In the ear (ITE) An ITE hearing aid is custom made in two styles — one that fills most of the bowl-shaped area of your outer ear (full shell) and one that fills only the lower part (half shell). Both are helpful for people with mild to severe hearing loss.

        • Includes features such as volume control and directional microphones that are easier to adjust

        • Is generally easier to insert

        • Uses larger batteries, which are easier to handle and last longer

        • Is susceptible to earwax clogging

        • May pick up more wind noise than smaller devices

        • Is more visible in the ear than smaller devices

      • Behind the ear: A behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid hooks over the top of your ear and rests behind the ear. A tube connects the hearing aid to a custom earpiece called an earmold that fits in your ear canal. This type is appropriate for people of all ages and those with almost any type of hearing loss.

        • Traditionally has been the largest type of hearing aid, though some newer mini designs are streamlined and barely visible

        • Is capable of more amplification than are other styles

        • May pick up more wind noise than other styles

      • Receiver in canal or receiver in the ear: The receiver-in-canal (RIC) and receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) styles are similar to a behind-the-ear hearing aid with the speaker or receiver in the canal or in the ear. A tiny wire, rather than tubing, connects the pieces.

        • Has a less visible behind-the-ear portion

        • Is susceptible to earwax clogging

      • Open fit: An open-fit hearing aid is a variation of the behind-the-ear hearing aid. This style keeps the ear canal very open, allowing for low-frequency sounds to enter the ear naturally and for high-frequency sounds to be amplified through the hearing aid. This makes the style a good choice for people with mild to profound hearing loss.

        • Is less visible

        • Doesn’t plug the ear like the small in-the-canal hearing aids do, making your own speech sound better to you

        • Is difficult to handle due to small parts and batteries

        • Often lacks manual adjustments due to its small size
