Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids

Behind-the-Ear hearing aids are versatile and suitable for a wide range of hearing losses. They sit comfortably behind or on top of the ear and are connected to a custom earpiece or earmold via a tube. BTE hearing aids are known for their durability, ease of use, and the option to include advanced features.

In-the-Ear (ITE) Hearing Aids

In-the-Ear hearing aids are custom-molded to fit directly into the ear canal. They are less noticeable than BTE models and provide a discreet hearing solution. ITE hearing aids are suitable for various degrees of hearing loss and offer easy adjustment.

In-the-Canal (ITC) Hearing Aids

In-the-Canal hearing aids are smaller than ITE models and fit partly in the ear canal. They are less visible than larger hearing aids and provide a good balance between discretion and functionality. ITC hearing aids are appropriate for mild to moderate hearing loss.

Completely-in-Canal (CIC) Hearing Aids

Completely-in-Canal hearing aids are the most discreet option available. They are custom-made to fit deep within the ear canal, making them nearly invisible. CIC hearing aids are designed for mild to moderate hearing loss and offer enhanced cosmetic appeal.

Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) Hearing Aids

Receiver-in-Canal hearing aids are similar to BTE models but with a smaller and more discreet receiver or speaker placed directly in the ear canal. RIC hearing aids provide excellent sound quality and are suitable for various hearing loss levels.

Open-Fit Hearing Aids

Open-Fit hearing aids are similar to RIC models but leave the ear canal more open. They are ideal for individuals who want a comfortable and discreet option that allows natural sound to enter the ear. Open-Fit hearing aids are suitable for mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss.

Invisible-in-Canal (IIC) Hearing Aids

Invisible-in-Canal hearing aids are the smallest and most discreet option available. They fit deep in the ear canal, making them virtually invisible. IIC hearing aids are custom-made for each individual and suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss.
