Ongoing advancements in hearing aid technology provide a range of choices to improve your hearing and meet the demands of a new generation of hearing aid users. The current styles differ by size, their placement on or inside the ear and the degree to which they amplify sound.
|Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE) hearing devices are the most unobtrusive type of hearing instrument currently available. This style keeps the ear canal open to reduce any plugged-up sensation. The appropriateness of these hearing devices is limited based on the degree of hearing loss.|
|The Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC) hearing instrument is almost invisible. If cosmetic appeal is important, many have found this to be the best device for them. The appropriateness of this style hearing instrument is limited based on a persons degree of hearing loss and manual dexterity.|
|The In-The-Canal (ITC) style hearing instrument is a smaller model than the full-shell ITE and is appropriate for hearing losses from mild to moderately severe. Options are limited due to size restrictions. Good manual dexterity is more important for this style.|
|A custom In-The-Ear (ITE) hearing instrument fills the outer portion of the ear. This style is appropriate for mild to severe hearing losses and may include features such as directional microphones, multiple listening programs, and a tele-coil.|
|Behind-The-Ear (BTE) instruments are appropriate for hearing losses from mild to profound. Directional microphones, multiple listening programs and a tele-coil for compatibility are available for these models. This style is best suited for pediatric patients and individuals with excessive moisture and accumulative cerumen (earwax).|
