Hearing Aid Styles
There is a number of hearing aid styles available to give you both hearing clarity and comfort. Each of these styles compiles a host of special features and a wide range of technology. Generally, the cost of hearing aids rely largely upon the number of features as well as the technology available in the instrument and not necessarily in the style chosen.
Considering the degree of your hearing loss, your needs, lifestyle and budget, we can always prescribe the style that will suit you perfectly well.
Here are some of the top hearing aid styles.
In-the-ear aids (ITE) devices have all parts concealed in a shell which fills in the outer part of the ear (Concha). Being a bit large, they may be visible when standing face-to-face with someone. However, they are capable of holding additional features and are also quite easy to insert due to the size.
These are also referred to as “receiver-in-the-end” or RITA devices. Generally, they possess both a microphone part (which fits behind the ear) and an ear piece (which fits inside the ear). Behind-the-ear aids are particularly helpful to individuals suffering from moderate to severe hearing loss and as a result, needs major amplifications across several frequencies.
'Mini' Behind-the-Ear Aids
These are also known as “on-the-ear” or mini BTE devices. This hearing aid style is specially designed to hide behind the outer ear with an almost invisible tubing which connects to a soft tip present in the ear canal without any form of obstruction. This allows for a natural feeling as sound and airflow enters the ear close to the tip.
