Hearing Aids

There are many different hearing aids available with different styles, features, and cosmetic solutions that can greatly enhance your daily life without hindering your individual lifestyle.

Different styles of hearing aids

In-The-Ear
​(ITE)

Custom In-the-Ear hearing instruments are used for mild to severe hearing loss. Custom instruments sit entirely within the ear and are fitted individually based on an impression of the wearer's ear.


Behind-The-Ear (BTE) Conventional

The earmould connects a BTE instrument to the ear and is individually shaped for each wearer. It is important because it fulfills multiple functions for acoustics and better hearing. One of the most important tasks of the earmould is to conduct the amplified sound to the eardrum.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)
Open Fitting

Open fittings use a thin tube in place of an earmould to connect the BTE instrument to the ear. Open fittings are more comfortable and avoid the collection of moisture in the ear. They are only suitable for certain hearing losses, but advantages include sound quality and comfort.

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

RIC open fittings look quite similar to the open fittings discussed above. But unlike most conventional Behind-The-Ear instruments, the receiver is placed within the ear cana.

Instant Fit

A variety of instant-fit or hearing amplifier products also exist. Some provide relatively little amplification and are a cheap, but not very satisfactory option for mild hearing losses.
