Styles of Hearing Aids
The number of hearing aid styles can be overwhelming. Let us break it down for you in easy-to-understand terms. Hearing aids can be worn in the ear, behind the ear or in the canal. The different styles are as follows:
In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids fill the entire ear bowl. This is the largest in the ear style of hearing aid. The increased size means they offer more controls and features than are possible with smaller devices. Because the battery is larger, it lasts longer. They are worn by people with mild-to-severe hearing loss.
In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids sit at the top of the ear canal, in the lower portion of the ear bowl. Their size makes them easy to insert and remove for people with dexterity issues. The size also accommodates features like directional microphones as well as a larger battery. They are worn by people with mild and moderate hearing losses.
Completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids are worn deep in the ear canal and are hardly visible. Their smaller size uses a smaller battery, so battery changes or recharges are required more frequently. Still, they are powerful enough for mild to moderate hearing loss.
Invisible-in-canal (IIC) devices are the smallest hearing aids available today. They are completely invisible, so they are perfect for those wanting an invisible device. They are worn deep in the ear canal and are fitted with a small handle to make insertion and removal easy. They are worn by those with mild to moderate hearing loss.
Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are worn on top of the outer ear. Tubing/wiring channels sounds down into the ear where an ear tip or earmold delivers the amplified sound. BTE hearing aids are made for individuals with mild-to-profound hearing loss.
Don’t let exposure to noise damage your hearing. Custom hearing protection is more comfortable to wear and provides greater protection than off the shelf devices. The hearing specialist at New Hartford Hearing Center is an expert at fitting hearing protection devices with your hearing protection needs.
