Hearing Aid 

Types of Hearing Aid

There is no single hearing aid that is suitable for all types of hearing loss. The type you need depends on your individual hearing loss and the nature of that loss. Call us now to discuss the right hearing aid style for you.


Receiver-In-The-Canal (RIC)

  • Ear canal is not entirely blocked with this open-fit design

  • In addition to amplified sound, you will be able to hear natural sound

  • Most popular option


Invisible-In-The-Canal (IIC) & Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC)

  • Smallest custom hearing aid

  • Completely and deeply fits in the ear canal and is almost invisible

  • Though small, this hearing aid is very powerful and fits a range of hearing loss

  • May not be suitable for people with significant hearing losses or hearing loss that fluctuates or deteriorates quickly


In-The-Canal (ITC)

  • Smaller than ITE

  • Most often chosen for cosmetic reasons as they are less visible than BTE and ITE hearing aids


In-The-Ear (ITE) 

  • Custom designed hearing aid that firmly sits in the user’s ear

  • Fits within the outer ear and extends into the ear canal

  • Accommodates a wide variety of hearing losses


Behind-The-Ear (BTE) 

  • A hearing instrument housed in a curved case that fits securely behind the ear.

  • It consists of an ear mould, a tubing, an ear hook and a hearing aid body

  • Sound is delivered from the hearing instrument through the ear mould and into the ear canal

  • Caters a wide range of hearing loss, including profound hearing loss
