Behind-The-Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids
Behind-the-ear hearing aids are a versatile and often cost-effective solution for mild to profound hearing loss. BTEs have a case that fits behind the ear and a clear tube connecting to an earpiece that is molded to fit inside the ear canal. Sound is collected via the microphones in the case behind the ear, travels through the tube to the earpiece and into the ear. Because the position of the speaker is fixed within the case, behind-the-ear hearing aids generally have more powerful amplification capabilities. In addition, they're sturdy, easy to clean and suitable for all ages.
Although behind-the-ear hearing aids can be more visible than some other styles, they have several benefits, including Bluetooth capability, longer battery life, strong amplification and wireless connectivity. Most BTEs have directional microphones that are especially useful in noisy situations.
