Hearing Aid Styles

The hearing aids we carry come in a variety of styles and levels of technology. Each style is suitable to people with different severity of hearing loss and needs. They include:

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)
  • For users with more severe hearing loss or smaller ear canals
  • All the electronic parts parts are in the housing that sits behind the ear
  • A customized earmold and a tube will direct sound into the ear
  • Users can easily control volume and select programs on most BTE’s
Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)
  • For users with mild to severe hearing loss
  • Similar to BTE’s in shape and style
  • Smaller in size because the receiver (or loudspeaker) is in the ear-tip instead of behind the ear
  • Sound is sent directly from housing behind the ear to the receiver which is in the ear canal
  • Provide outstanding sound, are discrete and fully automatic
Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE)
  • For users with more severe hearing loss but want smaller, discrete housing than BTE’s
  • Suitability depends on the shape of the ear and severity of hearing loss
  • Transmits sound to the receiver that sits just outside the ear on the concha (the bowl of the ear next to the ear canal)
In-The-Ear (ITE)
  • For users with most types of hearing loss
  • Come in a variety of sizes depending on the severity of hearing loss, shape of the ear, battery size and dexterity requirements
  • Can be relatively discrete depending on the size of the ear canal
  • When fitted for an ITE hearing aid, we create a custom shell to perfectly fit the shape of the patient’s ear
  • The shell contains all vital electronics
Completely-In-Canal (CIC)
  • For users with mild to moderate-severity of hearing loss
  • Very discreet design that can fit completely in the ear canal to be almost invisible
  • Level of visibility depends on the size and shape of the ear
  • Can be fully automatic that do not require adjustments or intervention
Invisible-In-Canal (IIC)
  • Smallest hearing aid style on the market
  • Use the ear’s natural shape to localize sound
  • Has custom made shell to fit deep in the ear canal
  • Fully automatic so users do not have to remove them to make adjustments
All hearing aid styles that are partially or completely inside the ear require custom impressions to be taken of the client’s ear to make sure they fit properly. Some styles come with a variety of options to further ensure better fitting, including domes, custom tips, and earmolds. The exact style and functionality will vary between different hearing aid manufacturers and models.

When you visit our clinic in Yarmouth, we always recommend the hearing aid style and model that will work best with your ear and the nature of your hearing loss. While people prefer the invisible models because they are more discreet, they may not be suitable for you. Our end goal is to ensure you have a better hearing experience so your hearing loss does not disrupt your lifestyle.

Book an appointment with us today to ask our clinician any questions or concerns you have about your hearing loss and what type of hearing aid you would prefer. We will do everything we can to make sure we fit you with a solution that you are comfortable with.

Hearing Aid Batteries

Hearing aids come in a variety of sizes and styles, and each will have different needs for power. People with more severe hearing loss will need more powerful hearing aids, which requires them to consume more energy stored in the batteries. Those hearing aids require bigger batteries as a result.

That is why there are different sized batteries for each type of hearing aid that can hold a charge for a different amount of time. We carry multiple sizes and types of hearing aid batteries to help anyone who need replacements. If you purchase your hearing aids from us, you get 5 years of batteries for free.

Some hearing aid models come with rechargeable batteries, so instead of replacing batteries you just plug them into a special charging station. 

If you want to arrange to pick up battery replacements, or have questions about your rechargeable hearing aids, give us a call today to see how we can help.
