Types of Hearing Aids

There are six main types of hearing aids, which are all suitable for several different types of hearing loss. The different options available ensure that your hearing aids are fully customisable to you and your needs.

RIC (Receiver In Canal)

RIC, or Receiver In Canal hearing aids transmit the sound down a slim tube or mould into the ear. They come in a range of styles and colours so they can disappear discreetly or stand out if you prefer.

BTE (Behind The Ear)

BTE, or Behind The Ear hearing aids provide the most power and handle moderate to severe hearing losses with ease. They are even suitable for people with a profound hearing loss.

ITC (In The Canal)

ITC, or In The Canal hearing aids sit inside the ear canal, making them all but invisible. They use custom-made moulds of the inside of your ear, so they are extremely comfortable and secure.

ITE (In The Ear)

These custom made ITE, or In The Ear hearing aids sit in the shell of the ear. They are comfortable, discreet, and powerful enough to handle a wide range of hearing losses.

CIC (Completely In Canal)

CIC, or Completely In Canal hearing aids are very discreet and very little can be seen outside of the ear canal. They sit in the canal with only the transparent extract cord visible. They are suitable for a range of hearing losses, from mild to severe.

OTE (On The Ear)

One of the most popular style available, OTE, or On The Ear hearing aids are small, discreet and come in a range of designs and colours. They are an ideal choice for the first time wearer as this style gives a more natural sound.
