Hearing Aids by Style

Hearing aids contain a microphone that collects the sound, a micro sound processing computer to help filter and amplify the sounds, and a speaker that plays the sound to the ear. Each style of hearing aid contains these components in a different configuration. Choosing a hearing aid style depends on a combination of both your individual hearing loss as well as your cosmetic preferences.

Explore each style below.

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

RICs are worn behind the ear and have a wire bringing the sound to a speaker which sits inside the ear canal.  RICs tend to be smaller and more cosmetically appealing than a standard behind the ear (BTE) hearing aid.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

BTEs also sit behind the ear and collect sound.  The difference between a RIC and a BTE is the speaker for a BTE is in the case behind the ear, and the sound travels down a clear tube into the ear canal.

In-The-Ear (ITE)

In-The-Ear (ITE)

Custom hearing aids are made to the exact dimensions of your ear using impressions and digital scanning technology to create a custom fit.  The components are then placed into the custom shell that fits precisely into your ear.  They come in a variety of sizes.
