Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids
With this hearing aid style, all parts of the hearing aid are contained in a small plastic case that rests behind your ear. This small case is then connected to an ear-mold by a piece of clear tubing. This style is a great option for young children who are still growing or for temporary hearing loss.
Behind-the-Ear Aid: Open Fitting
The Open Fitting hearing style aid is made up of a small plastic case that rests behind your ear, and a very thin clear tube that runs into the ear canal. Inside the ear canal, a small, soft silicone dome or a molded acrylic tip holds the tube in place. If you would like to discuss the listening advantages of this type of hearing aid, contact us today.
In-the-Canal (ITC) and Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC) Hearing Aids
These types of hearing aids are contained in a tiny case that fits partly or completely into the ear canal. They are the smallest of the hearing aid styles and offer cosmetic and listening advantages. If you would like to discuss a fitting or how an In-the-Canal (ITC) or Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC) hearing aid might benefit you, contact us today.
