In The Ear (ITE)

Nothing over your ear and generally fully automatic so you put them in and leave them.

The CIC has more functionality than the IIC plus is more robust especially when you can get them in Titanium!
Very discrete once in your ear they generally can be classed as invisible hearing aids.
Receiver in the Canal (RIC)
Without question the most popular hearing aid on the market.
This hearing aid is not only invisible if fitted right it also has the most functionality so it is able to cope with challenging situation better than any hearing aid.
These types of aids also offer superior comfort over standard hearing aids due to the fitting being what we called open.
Customer feedback on these hearing aids are always at the top.
Behind the Ear (BTE)
The hearing aid that most people associate with.
People who don’t wear hearing aids think they all look like this, why? Because people can generally see them so they just think they all look like this!
Technology today states that fewer people will wear this type of aid.
Generally only the very hard of hearing or clients needing a robust hearing aid will opt for this type of hearing aid.
Rechargeable Hearing Aids
Sick and tired of changing hearing aids batteries? Poor dexterity means changing hearing aid batteries is too difficult? Re chargeable hearing aids may be the solution. These come in the RIC format discussed above. Very popular and discreet come and experience the rechargeable hearing aids.
Do you answer lots of phone calls? Do you watch lots of movies or TV?

Couple this with streaming your TVdirect to your hearing aids so that you and your partner or family can have independent volumes!
