Hearing Aid Styles
At the Hearing Aid Company, we understand that one size does NOT fit all when it comes to assisted listening devices. Our hearing care specialists are ready with hearing devices for mild hearing loss, moderate hearing loss, and even severe hearing loss...and one of them will be perfect for you.
Receiver in the Canal (RIC) Hearing AidsAll RIC solutions have their electronics, battery and microphone inside a casing worn behind the ear. An ultra thin, sculpted wire carries the amplified sound to a speaker that fits in the ear canal. Receiver-in-the-Canal technology works well for hearing losses ranging from mild to severe.
Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Hearing AidsBTE hearing aids consist of a hard plastic case worn behind the ear and connected to a custom fitted mold that fits inside the outer ear. Sound travels from the hearing aid through the earmold and into the ear. BTE aids are used by people of all ages for mild to profound hearing loss.
In-the-Ear (ITE) Hearing AidsITE hearing aids fit completely inside the outer ear and are used for mild to severe hearing loss. The case holding the electronic components is made of hard plastic. Some ITE aids may have certain added features installed, such as a telecoil.
In the CanalAs the name suggests, canal aids fit into the ear canal and are available in three styles. The in-the-canal (ITC) hearing aid is made to fit the size and shape of a person's ear canal. A completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aid is nearly hidden in the ear canal and Invisible in the Canal (IIC). All three types are used for mild to moderately severe hearing loss.
