Behind-the-EarBehind the Ear

This is the most traditional model: a small, curved case that fits behind the ear with a thin, transparent tube that runs into the ear canal. Newer models are far less visible than previous generation hearing aids. The BTE hearing aid is highly versatile, providing excellent treatment for most forms of hearing loss.

Open-CanalOpen Fit or Open Canal Mini-BTE

Smaller behind-the-ear hearing aids in which sound travels from the instrument through a small tube to the speaker in your ear canal, but it leaves the ear open -- so there isn't a 'plugged up' feeling some people experience with other hearing aids. Open Canal Mini-BTEs are best for mild to moderate high-frequency hearing loss where low-frequency hearing is still normal.

Receiver-in-the-canalReceiver in the Canal (RIC)

This is a discreet, comfortable design that is easy to fit. It sits inside the ear canal similar to the BTE. A great choice for those with mild to moderate hearing loss who are sensitive to having things in their ears.

Completely-in-the-canalCompletely in the Canal (CIC)

Molded to fit deeply within your ear canal, CICs are the smallest and least visible types of hearing aid. Because they're sheltered within the ear, it helps cut down on wind noise. CICs can help improve mild to moderate hearing loss in adults.

In-the-EarIn the Ear (ITE)

Fitting directly into the external part of your ear, their size makes them visible, but it also makes them easier to insert and adjust. ITEs are most helpful for people with mild to severe hearing loss. To ensure you get a solution that is right for you, we also offer an industry-leading risk-free 75–day trial* as part of a comprehensive follow–up program that also includes free office visits for the duration of your warranty. It's our way to make sure your hearing aids work exactly as you'd like them to.

In-the-CanalIn the Canal (ITC)

Fitting partially within your ear canal and barely visible, ITCs small size makes them nearly invisible, but adjusting them can be more difficult. Many of these models come with remote controls to make adjusting them easier. ITCs are used for adults with mild to moderately severe hearing loss.
