Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

Their longer shape, following the contour behind the outer ear, generally provide the most power. The ear mold is made specific for the shape of the user's ears. These are durable, comfortable, more flexible and powerful. BTEs fit mild through profound hearing losses.

Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)/Mini BTE

Currently the most popular and versatile style, the receiver is placed inside a small dome in the ear canal with a small ear component placed behind the ear. There is more power, less distortion and a comfortable fit. They fit mild to severe hearing losses.

In-The-Ear (ITE)

These hearing aids are custom made for the patient's ear and are a larger version of the ITC. The size makes them easier to manage and a longer battery life. These are used to fit mild, moderate and severe hearing losses.

In-The-Canal (ITC)

ITC instruments sit in the lower portion of the ear rather than filling the entire ear cavity. This makes them more comfortable, and less noticeable. They fit mild and moderate hearing losses.

Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC)

CIC instruments fit deeply and completely within the ear canal. They fit mild to moderate hearing losses and are nearly invisible when worn. Due to the size, only limited technology and power can be included. They may also be more difficult to manage and manipulate.

Music teachers, musicians, dentists, and concert fans are just a few examples of people in high noise environments where these earplugs could be beneficial. They are virtually unnoticeable when the canal-style earplug is worn and are great for performing musicians or when used by concert attendees.
