Types of Hearing Aids

There are five main types of hearing aids available, each with its unique features and benefits. Receiver in Canal (RIC) hearing aids feature a slim plastic tube that extends from the device’s body, which is located behind the ear. Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids rest comfortably behind the ear and amplify sound that travels down a tube and into a customized earmold. In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids are custom-made and considered the most discreet hearing aid style, lacking any visible external wires or tubes. In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids sit in the lower third of the external ear and offer longer battery life and directional microphones to balance out background noise. Completely-In-Canal (CIC) hearing aids are small and fit inside the ear canal, eliminating the need for controllers and offering a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
