Types of Hearing Aids

Types of Hearing Aids


Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)
The receiver-in-canal device is small, discreet, and incredibly quick to fit; perfect for many first-time wearers.



 

Receiver-In-Canal Absolute Power (RIC AP)
The receiver-in-canal Absolute Power instrument combines a custom-formed earmold with the sleek, sophisticated receiver-in-canal instrument allowing people with even the most severe hearing loss to enjoy style without sacrificing power and performance.

 


 


Behind the Ear
BTE instruments' technology is housed in a casing that rests behind the ear. A clear plastic tube then directs amplified sound into an earmold inside the ear canal.

Completely-In-Canal (CIC)
These devices fit completely in the canal. Only the head of a tiny plastic line—with which you insert or remove the instrument—shows above the canal.

 


 


In-The-Canal (ITC)
In-the-canal instruments feature an earmold that fits down into the ear canal and a smaller portion that faces out into the outer ear.

In-The-Ear (ITE)
In-the-ear instruments house the technology components in a custom-formed earmold that fits within the outer portion of the ear.
