Hearing Aid Styles
We understand that when you hear better, you live better.
That’s why we carry hearing aids in all shapes and sizes; our provider will help you select the style that fits you properly and will work best for your hearing needs. We carry hearing aids from the leading manufacturers in various styles, colors and functionalities, including Smartphone connectivity through apps and Bluetooth® compatible devices.
The Styles We Carry
Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids fit behind the ear and hook into the ear canal. This style features a small plastic case that houses the hearing aid components and attaches to a custom ear mold with clear plastic tubing. These sturdy hearing aids are easy to handle and clean, and the ear molds can be replaced as needed. For those reasons, BTEs are often used for children who may outgrow their ear molds. They are available in a wide range of colors to match an individual’s hair or skin.
Receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) devices represent a new development in hearing aids. Compared to the BTE, the receiver is placed in the ear-tip, reducing its size as compared to being placed in the housing.
Mini RITE hearing aids offer revolutionary sound quality! Speech comes through so clearly that conversing becomes less strenuous. With noisy sounds kept under control and whistling sounds minimized, you and your loved ones can communicate easily.
Design RITE hearing aids are smaller and more stylish than ever. Their comfortability and natural feel will make you forget you are even wearing them. Design RITE hearing aids provide the perfect balance of performance, discretion and style that cannot be matched.
In-the-ear or half shell (ITE/HS) hearing aids are somewhat larger than other styles as the components are contained in a shell that fits into the outer ear. Their larger size makes them easier to adjust than other hearing aid styles and more useful for people with mild to severe hearing loss.
Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids are custom-molded to fit in the user’s ear canal, making them nearly invisible. They are useful for mild hearing loss in adults and offer the cosmetic benefit of fitting in the ear canal. The small size, however, may make CICs more difficult for some people to adjust.
Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aids showcase the latest in digital technology. The tiny IIC is custom-fitted to sit deep inside the ear canal so it is virtually invisible. It is fully automatic and removable by a small cord. The IIC is most useful for those with mild to moderate hearing loss.
