Hearing Aid Styles

In recent years, there has been significant advancement in hearing aid technology. Best Hearing Aid Solutions is committed to establishing exclusive partnerships with leading brands in the industry, ensuring access to high-quality, comfortable, and cost-effective devices. It’s important to note that the hearing aid industry now offers a wider range of options than ever before. These options typically fall into two main categories: Behind-the-ear (BTE) and In-the-ear (ITE).

Behind-the-ear (BTE) Hearing Aids

Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are crafted to sit behind or above the outer ear. They utilize a tube that connects to an ear mold or tip placed inside the ear canal. BTE hearing aids offer extensive customization options, such as colors, sizes, features, power levels, and battery types. Despite their compact size, these BTE devices are often discreet, making them a subtle choice. Now, let’s delve into the various styles of BTE hearing aids available.

Mini BTE

The Mini Behind-the-Ear (BTE) device stands out as the smallest option on the market. Its innovative design features a flexible tip and tube, facilitating airflow and allowing amplified sounds to reach the ear. This unique combination ensures unparalleled audio clarity and maximum comfort for the wearer.

Receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) or Receiver-in-canal (RIC)

RITE hearing aids distinguish themselves with their distinctive design. Unlike traditional models, RITE devices place the speaker in the ear tip rather than the main body of the device. This innovative approach not only provides a more discreet appearance but also renders them nearly invisible to others. Comparable in size to Mini BTE hearing aids, RITE style offers a compact and inconspicuous option for individuals seeking exceptional comfort and functionality.

BTE with Earmold

The BTE with Earmold provides users with a variety of premium features and extended battery life. This exceptional device incorporates a customized earmold positioned at the tip of the tubing, guaranteeing accurate sound transmission directly into the ear canal. Its slightly larger design, crafted to replicate the natural shape of the ear, enhances both comfort and functionality. With the BTE with Earmold, users can enjoy an unparalleled level of auditory satisfaction.

In-the-Ear (ITE) Hearing Aids

At our facility, we offer a range of In-the-Ear (ITE) hearing aids designed to fit snugly within the ear canal. Each device is customized to fit an individual’s ear impression, ensuring a personalized and comfortable fit. Unlike behind-the-ear models, ITE hearing aids provide a discreet and convenient option for those in need of auditory assistance. We provide a wide selection of ITE styles to cater to different preferences and specific needs.

Invisible In-the-Canal (IIC)

Invisible-in-Canal (IIC) devices are specially crafted to sit deep inside the ear canal, making them the smallest hearing aids currently available. Despite their remarkably compact size, these devices deliver exceptional performance, significantly improving sound quality and accuracy for individuals with hearing difficulties. The discreet design of IIC devices offers a covert and effective solution to enhance one's listening experience.

Completely In-the-Canal (CIC)

Although Slightly larger than Invisible-in-Canal (IIC) devices, Completely-in-Canal (CIC) hearing aids maintain a discreet and inconspicuous design. They are intricately designed to fit snugly within your ear canal, offering a nearly invisible solution for discreet auditory assistance.

In-the-Canal (ITC) or Half Shell

The In-the-Canal (ITC) device offers advanced features such as volume control, directional microphones, and longer battery life, making it an excellent choice for individuals seeking enhanced functionality. Designed to fit comfortably in the lower part of the outer ear bowl, these discreet devices ensure a seamless user experience. Despite being slightly larger than Completely-in-Canal (CIC) devices, ITC devices cater to those who prioritize functionality without sacrificing discretion.

In-the-Ear (ITE) or Full Shell

For individuals facing significant hearing impairment, an In-The-Ear (ITE) device is frequently recommended. Occupying the entire outer bowl of the ear, this device offers a comfortable fit. Despite its larger size, the ITE device includes advanced features such as volume control and extended battery life. These functionalities contribute to a user-friendly and personalized experience, ideal for those seeking effective auditory solutions.
