Types of Hearing Aids

Invisible In-the-Canal (IIC) hearing aids

Invisible In-the-Canal (IIC)

Invisible-in-Canal (IIC) hearing aids rest inside of the ear canal. They are often custom built to fit your ear and are usually smaller than other hearing aid styles. These devices are useful for people who want a discrete device and who have a relatively mild hearing loss, as the smaller size means somewhat limited power and capabilities.
Completely-in-Canal (CIC) hearing aids

Completely-in-Canal (CIC)

Completely-in-Canal (CIC) hearing aids are a bit bigger than invisible-in-canal hearing aids, but also sit inside the ear canal. These custom designed models often include features that allow volume control, memory settings, and other programming options.
In-the-Ear (ITE) hearing aids

In-the-Ear (ITE)

In-the-Ear (ITE) hearing aids fit in your ear bowl. These devices function well for those with moderate to severe hearing loss due to their larger batteries and power outputs. These devices often provide wireless connections, volume control wheels, directional microphones, and additional technologies.
Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids

Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids are made up of an earmold in the ear canal and a piece that sits behind your ear with a tube attaching the two. This style offers maximum power and features.
Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) hearing aids

Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)

Receiver in the ear (RITE) or receiver in the canal (RIC) is similar to a BTE. One difference is that the technology of RIC hearing aids is divided between two parts of the device: the portion behind the ear houses the microphone and sound amplifier. There is also a small bud that sits in the ear canal and is connected to the outer portion by a thin tube, which contains the hearing aid’s receiver. The separation of the microphone and receiver causes fewer issues with feedback and background sounds.
