Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

The BTE can be used to fit a wide range of hearing losses, but is mainly reserved for more severe hearing losses. It can also be useful for extreme high frequency hearing losses or draining ears where special air ventilation is required.

Open Fitting

This style of hearing aid uses a thin tube or a speaker inside the canal. These types of instruments tend to be very discreet in appearance and can fit mild to severe hearing losses. The nicest feature of an open fit is that it does not require an earmold nor does it plug up the ear.

In-the-Ear (ITE)

This style is custom crafted to sit more in the exterior portion of the ear. An ITE fits a wider range of losses, it can cover mild to severe impairments. The ITE is easier to manipulate for those with dexterity issues.

In-the-Canal (ITC)

This style is custom crafted to sit into the ear canal, offering more concealment and, often, a more comfortable fit than BTE or ITE types. Advances in technology have allowed us to fit this smaller hearing aid on a variety of hearing losses, ranging from mild to moderate impairments.

Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC)

This style is the least likely to be seen because the CIC sits in the canal, there’s less chance of feedback due to the deeper fit. Today’s CICs can fit many hearing losses – from mild to severe – with excellent results in a variety of listening situations.

Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC)

The IIC and CIC are very similar, the difference is the IIC actually rests in the second bend of the canal. Because of it’s location in the canal, it virtually cannot be seen. This style fits mild to moderately severe hearing losses.
