Finding the Perfect Fit

Selecting hearing aids involves picking the casing that offers the most comfortable and most appropriate fit, and selecting the technology means finding the sound that best suits your lifestyle.

Hearing Device Styles include:

Receiver-In-Canal/Receiver-In-The-Ear (RIC/RITE) Technology:

With these devices, the speaker/receiver is placed inside the user’s ear canal, therefore reducing the size of the housing behind the ear. RICs/RITEs are now considered the most discreet and aesthetically pleasing of all hearing devices.

Open-Ear/Open-Fit Technology:

These hearing devices typically consist of small housing that sits behind the ear, with a very fine, clear tube running over the top of the ear, into the ear. This results in an open design without a "plugging" of the ear. Although similar to behind-the-ear (BTE) devices, these are smaller and more discreet than traditional BTEs.

Completely-In-Canal (CIC) Technology:

These devices are designed to fit entirely within the ear canal, and are custom-made to fit the ear canal.

In-The-Ear (ITE) Technology:

ITE is a custom device which fits in the outer ear bowl.

In-The-Canal (ITC) Technology:

ITC is a custom device which fits in the ear canal.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE) Technology:

As the name implies, these hearing devices are worn behind the ear and require a custom ear mould.
