Styles of Hearing Aids

  • In-The-Ear
    • With today’s technology, even people with severe losses can be properly fitted with an In-The-Ear (ITE) style of aid. Many consider this style to be more discreet than the style of hearing aids that are worn behind the ear.

  • In-The-Canal
    • In-The-Canal (ITC) hearing aid can be even more discreet than the In-The-Ear model. However, there are other factors that influence a person’s ability to wear a ITC hearing aid, such as degree of hearing loss, ear canal size, and manual dexterity.

  • Completely In-The-Canal
    • This is the smallest hearing aid available. As with the In-The-Canal style of aid, there are many factors that must be considered when deciding if a Completely In-The-Canal (CIC) is right for the wearer. These include the size and shape of the ear canal, degree of hearing loss, and manual dexterity.
