There are many different types of hearing aids to fit your budget and lifestyle. The five types of hearing aids we provide are:
Receiver-in-Canal Hearing Aids (RICs)
More discreet than standard BTE models, the Receiver-In- Canal hearing aids consist of three smaller components: the housing or processor (located behind the ear), fine wire and the receiver, which fits inside your ear. This hearing aid style is suitable for mild to severe hearing loss.
Completely-in-Canal Hearing Aids (CICs)
Fits inside the ear and is practically invisible. These are a bit smaller than the In-the-Canal Hearing Aids (ITCs), but still meet all your hearing needs.
In-the-Canal Hearing Aids (ITCs)
These hearing aids are custom fitted to your canal shape and blends with your skin complexion. ITCs are in between the sizes of CICs and ITEs, but are still suitable for mild to moderate hearing losses.
In-the-Ear Hearing Aids (ITEs)
Compared to CICs and ITCs, ITEs are larger and fill in the entire ear space. However, they are still small enough if you are self conscious about having your hearing aid be visible. These hearing aids are suitable for mild to severe hearing loss. They would be best if you have problems with dexterity or are nervous about handling a smaller device.
Conventional Behind-the-Ear Hearing Aids (BTEs)
BTEs are most associated with the traditional thinking of hearing aids. Conventional BTEs are ideal for wearers with limited dexterity and moderate to severe hearing loss. These types of hearing aids can blend with either your hair color or skin tone.
