Types of Hearing            aids

Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids

As the name suggests, BTE hearing aids are worn behind the ear. They consist of a plastic case that houses the electronic components and a custom-molded earmold that fits inside the ear canal.

In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids

ITE hearing aids are custom-made to fit in the outer ear. They are less visible than BTEs and offer better sound quality than smaller hearing aids like in-the-canal (ITC).

ITC hearing aids are smaller than ITEs and fit partially in the ear canal. They are less visible than larger hearing aids but may not be suitable for people with severe hearing loss.

In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids

CIC hearing aids are the smallest type of hearing aid and fit entirely in the ear canal. They are virtually invisible and offer good sound quality.

Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids

There are many types of hearing aids available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. When selecting a hearing aid, it is essential to consider your hearing needs, lifestyle, and preferences.
