Hearing Aid Styles


ITE - (In The Ear)
While the custom ITE styles are not as popular as they once where there are still some times when we use them. They usually fill the whole bowl of the ear so very visible. Insertion- These devices are the easiest to insert, big enough to grab onto and nothing to put behind the ear. Comfortable- With nothing behind the ear some prefer this especially if they wear glasses and use oxygen. If an elderly patient is used to this style we usually will continue with it due to its simplicity and familiarity. *Usually Bluetooth Compatible.




RITE - (Receiver In The Ear)
This style is by far the most popular style in the industry today with over 80% of hearing aids fit. The speaker sits down in the ear canal and is connected to a small hearing aid via a very thin wire that sits behind the ear. Discreet- Due to its small size and thin wire running to the ear canal, these devices tend to blend right in especially if the case color matches the hair color. Currently this style is the only rechargeable on the market. Almost always (low energy). *Bluetooth Compatible.




ITC - (In The Canal)
With much of the advantages of the ITE but smaller and more discreet. For some with small ear canals these may not sit down as deep as we would like. *Sometimes Bluetooth Compatible.




CIC - (Completely In the Canal)
CIC hearing aids are usually small enough that they are not seen depending on the ear canal size. They do have the smallest batteries and usually no user controls or buttons. *Not Bluetooth Compatible.




Lyric - (Extended Wear)
The lyric is a device that we insert down to about 4mm from the ear drum and it stays there for about two months, then we remove and replace it. This is a very different type of device and when they work people love them. No batteries to change, wake up in the middle of the night and you can hear. Not for everyone and still a small percentage of the hearing aids we fit.

Optional Features Include
  • Noise Reduction
    All hearing aids have some amount of noise reduction available. The amount of noise reduction varies.
  • Directional Microphones
    These are aligned on the hearing aid to provide for improved pick up of sounds coming from in front of you with some reduction of sounds coming from behind or beside you. Some hearing aids are capable of focusing in one direction. Directional microphones can improve your ability to hear when you're in an environment with a lot of background noise.
  • Rechargeable Batteries
    Some hearing aids have rechargeable batteries. This can make maintenance easier for you by eliminating the need to regularly change the battery.
  • Telecoils
    Telecoils make it easier to hear when talking on a telecoil-compatible telephone. The telecoil eliminates the sounds from your environment and only picks up the sounds from the telephone. Telecoils also pick up signals from public induction loop systems that can be found in some churches or theaters, allowing you to hear the speaker, play or movie better.
  • Wireless Connectivity
    Increasingly, hearing aids can wirelessly interface with certain Bluetooth-compatible devices, such as cellphones, music players and televisions. You may need to use an intermediary device to pick up the phone or other signal and send it to the hearing aid.
  • Remote Controls
    Some hearing aids come with a remote control, so you can adjust features without touching the hearing aid.
  • Direct Audio Input
    This feature allows you to plug in to audio from a television, a computer or a music device with a cord.
  • Variable Programming
    Some hearing aids can store several preprogrammed settings for various listening needs and environments.
  • Environmental Noise Control
    Some hearing aids offer noise cancellation, which helps block out background noise. Some also offer wind noise reduction.
  • Synchronization
    For an individual with two hearing aids, the aids can be programmed to function together so that adjustments made to a hearing aid on one ear (volume control or program changes) will also be made on the other aid, allowing for simpler control.
