Open-Fit RIC

These are by far the most popular hearing aid style. These hearing aids sit behind the ear with a wire leading to a receiver placed in the ear canal. As such, they do not require an ear mold, and benefit from improved functionality and customization compared to the Custom Fit models above while still remaining quite discreet, hidden behind the ear. Our patients often remark that they're so comfortable, they forget they're wearing them!

Suitable for Mild to Moderately Severe hearing loss
Best suited for High-frequency Hearing Losses, such as age-related or noise-induced
Advantages: Discreet, most comfortable, longer battery (5-7 days), wireless, directional microphones, rechargeable models available
Disadvantages: Not best suited for Severe hearing loss

 

Behind the Ear (BTE)

This is a Behind-the-Ear hearing aid with custom ear mold. They combine the technologies of the Custom Fit and Open-Fit styles and are the most powerful hearing aids available. 

Suitable for Severe to Profound hearing loss
Advantages: Largest battery (7-18 days), excellent for patients with reduced dexterity, wireless, directional microphones, rechargeable models available
Disadvantages: Less discreet
