Hearing aid Styles
There are now a variety of different hearing aid styles and technologies available. During your hearing assessment you will be given open and independent advice on the most suitable solution for you taking into account your lifestyle and budget. Call 01932 344004 for our next available appointment.
Here is a brief introduction to the different hearing aid styles on offer:
This is our most discreet style available. The hearing aid is custom built to sit deep in the ear canal out of sight and out of mind. As the hearing aid sits in the ear canal, the benefits of the natural acoustics of the outer ear are retained. The hearing aid sits out of the way of face masks, glasses etc.
A CIC hearing aid sits in the entrance of the ear canal offering a very discreet solution with the potential for an additional programme button for user control.
with the potential for an additional programme button for user control.
An ITC hearing aid is customised to sit in the canal and “bowl” part of the ear. Whilst being relatively small, it is large enough to house a rechargeable battery and dual microphones as well as being capable of connecting directly to a smart device. An ITC can be colour matched to the user’s skin tone or come in a stylish black finish giving a modern aesthetic similar to a music earbud.
An ITE hearing aid is the largest custom style and an excellent choice for those with poor hand dexterity. Like the ITC it can be rechargeable, have dual microphones to improve listening in noise and can connect directly to a smart device. It’s larger size shell has the ability to house a telecoil to enable access to loop systems.
Some individuals prefer the more traditional approach of having the bulk of their hearing aid behind their ear rather than in their ear. The RIC achieves this whilst providing a small, discreet but powerful solution. It can be rechargeable, features dual microphones and has full wireless capabilities as well as telecoil options.
