Custom Made (ITC/CIC)

Custom devices are made to measure ear pieces that sit completely in the ear. They come in varying shapes and sizes with the smallest devices virtually invisible in the ear of the wearer. The trade-off of having such small devices can be some reduction in features but if discretion is your primary concern, these may be for you. Available with batteries or rechargeable.

Receiver In The Ear (RITE)

Receiver in the ear devices are probably the most popular style of modern hearing aids. The have a small ‘body’ that sits behind the ear with a tiny wire that leads to a loudspeaker that fits in the ear canal. They have the capability to use directional microphones and can often give you the best results in tricky listening situations. Available with batteries or rechargeable.

Behind the ear (BTE)

Behind The Ear devices are a more traditional style of hearing aid with a slightly larger ‘body’ sitting behind the ear containing all the working parts. A length of thin tubing then carries the amplified sound down to a tip in the ear canal. Although they are larger devices that can actually be an advantage if you have trouble with dexterity in your fingers and these larger aids can also provide more power for more significant hearing losses. Available with batteries or rechargeable.
