We work with Industry leaders offering you the latest technology and a clear hearing experience.
Types of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids come in six major types, depending on where on the ear they are worn.
Behind the Ear
Shapes of Hearing Aids
BTE instruments’ technology is housed in a casing that rests behind the ear. A clear plastic tube then directs amplified sound into an earmold inside the ear canal.
Mini Behind-The-Ear (BTE)
The mini BTE rests behind the ear. The case at the back of the ear houses the technology, while a clear tube then directs amplified sound into the ear canal via an earmold or earbud.
The receiver-in-canal device is small, discreet, and incredibly quick to fit; perfect for many first-time wearers. As the name suggests, it is inserted into the canal.
Receiver-In-Canal -AP (RIC AP)
The RIC Absolute Power instrument combines a custom-formed earmold with a sleek RIC instrument allowing people to enjoy style without sacrificing performance.
Our newest custom fit style is truly 100% invisible when worn. Living in the second bend of the year, the IIC comes complete with industry-leading technology.
These devices fit completely in the canal. Only the head of a tiny plastic line — with which you insert or remove the instrument — shows above the canal.
In-the-canal instruments feature an earmold that fits down into the ear canal and a smaller portion that faces out into the outer ear.
In-the-ear instruments house the technology components in a custom-formed earmold that fits within the outer portion of the ear.
