Types of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids come in various styles and shapes, and they are categorized by the way they are worn. Issues of fit, placement, technology level, and power are very important to consider as you begin the search for the perfect hearing aid. Some hearing aids are small and discreet, designed to treat milder degrees of hearing loss. On the other hand, larger hearing aids are designed to treat more severe forms of hearing loss, as they require more power to function properly.

Additional Types of Hearing Aids
Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids
BTE hearing aids consist of two main parts: a plastic component that sits behind your ear and a thin, clear tube that connects to a small earbud that sits comfortably in your ear canal. This earbud does not seal out sound, however. Its “open fitting” style allows for natural airflow and sound to also enter your ear—making for very natural hearing conditions. BTE hearing aids are extremely popular because they provide flexibility across different degrees of hearing loss, rechargeable battery options, and discretion in their profile. Like many of the larger hearing aid styles, BTE devices are often equipped with advanced technologies and microphone capabilities that enhance your hearing.
Similar to BTE hearing aids, RIC hearing aids comprise of two parts: a plastic component that rests behind the ear and contains a microphone and sound amplifier, and a receiver that fits into your ear canal. The microphone and receiver are separate, which means that RIC hearing aids have very little feedback and fewer problems with occlusion.
