Different types of hearing aids
Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) Hearing Aid
These devices fit completely in the canal (CIC or IIC), and offer one of the best cosmetic solutions to your hearing problems, as they cannot be seen once inserted. Although IIC or CIC instruments offer aesthetic appeal, the structure of some individuals’ ears (e.g. those with a very narrow canal) or the severity of hearing loss may make this style unsuitable for them. Also their size does not allow for inclusion of certain technologies that are available in the slightly larger instruments.
In-the-canal (ITC) Hearing Aid
In-the-canal (ITC) instruments are small, featuring an earmould that fits down in to the ear canal and a small portion that faces out into the outer ear. They are discreet, yet partially visible within the outer ear and accommodate a mild to mildly severe hearing loss.
In-the-ear (ITE) Hearing Aid
In-the-ear instruments house their technology components in a custom-formed earmould that fits within the the ear. ITE’s are appropriate for wearers with most degrees of hearing loss even those with a severe impairment and feature easy-to-use controls which are ideal for those with limited manual dexterity. Their size allows for inclusion of all technologies required to provide hearing assistance in even the most demanding of environments.
Behind The Ear (BTE) Hearing Aid
BTE instruments rest behind the ear and house the device’s technology. The smaller and discreet BTE designs use a fine wire system that powers a very small speaker unit positioned in the canal. Larger BTE instruments require a clear plastic tube then directs amplified sound into an earmould inside the ear. Behind-the-ear instruments are often the most durable hearing devices and a few are even waterproof. Compared to smaller, in-the-ear instruments, they can hold more circuitry and offer greater amplification and can include all the sophisticated technologies available.
