Hearing Aids Style

With hundreds of different hearing aids available, choosing the right model for your personal circumstances can seem overwhelming.  Fortunately, our audiologists make this process much easier for you by considering factors such as your level of hearing loss, aesthetic preferences, lifestyle needs and budget to determine the best fit for you. 

The most popular hearing aids we provide fall into the following styles:

Behind the Ear (BTE)

With Behind the Ear hearing aids most components are contained in a small plastic case that rests behind the ear. A clear plastic acoustical tube directs amplified sound into an earbud or a customized earmold that is fitted inside the ear canal.

In the Ear (ITE)

ITE hearing instruments are custom-made to fit within the outer portion of the ear. The ITE aids are larger than the in-the-canal and completely-in-the-canal aids , and for some people may be easier to handle than smaller aids.

In the Canal (ITC)

ITC hearing instruments are custom-made to fit in the ear canal with a smaller portion of the hearing aid showing in the outer ear.

Invisible Hearing Aids (IIC)

This custom-fitted style is inserted farther into the ear canal than other styles, so it’s completely invisible* when worn. IIC hearing aids are designed to be removed daily to promote good ear health. For mild to moderate hearing loss.
