Various Hearing Aid Kinds
BTE hearing Aid

Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

Although one of the larger styles you'll see on the market, BTE hearing aids more than make up for it with access to more features and a longer battery life than any other style. The sound is guided directly to the ear canal using a specially formed earmold at the end of a tube.

RIC Hearing Aid

Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)

This is a kind of open-fit style of hearing aid with a thin plastic tube that runs across the outside ear and into the ear canal from the body of the hearing aid. A small soft tip site inside the ear canal but doesn't seal it. These are smaller than traditional BTE models but easy to operate and still have a range of features available.

CIC Hearing Aids

Completely-In-Canal (CIC)

This style fits inside the ear canal. Only the top of the hearing aid or a small clear plastic tail will be shown. Many people who choose CIC hearing aids say that people usually aren't aware that they are even wearing hearing aids. CIC hearing aids are also best suited for those with mild to moderate hearing loss.

IIC Hearing Aids

Invisible-In-Canal (IIC)

The IIC style is by far the least visible of all hearing aids. These hearing aids are made to fit your ear anatomy and fit deeper into your ear canal more than any other type of hearing aid–which makes it hard for anyone to notice you are wearing them. Such hearing aids can be used for people with mild to moderate loss of hearing.
