HEARING AIDS THAT FIT BEHIND THE EAR

Hearing aids that sit behind the ear are the perfect choice if you want extra power in a stylish design. All the electronic components are tucked neatly in a shell or housing behind your ear and you can choose from a large range of sizes, shapes and colours.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

For users with more severe hearing losses or smaller ear canals, Behind-the-ear hearing aids (BTE) - are a great solution.

All the electronic parts in the hearing aids are in the housing that sits behind your ear. A customised earmould and a tube direct sound into your ear. You can easily control volume and select programmes on most BTE's.

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

Receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids are similar to BTE’s in shape and style, but are smaller because the receiver (or the loudspeaker) is placed in the ear-tip instead of the housing. These hearing aids are most suitable if you have mild to severe hearing loss.

With RIC hearing aids, sound is sent directly from the housing behind your ear through a thin wire to the receiver which is in your ear canal. Not only do they provide outstanding sound, they are discreet and are fully automatic.

Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE)

Receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) hearing aids transmit sound to a receiver that sits just outside your ear on the concha - the hollow next to your ear canal.

Whether or not RITE hearing aids are suitable for you depends on the shape of your ear and your degree of hearing loss. If you want a smaller housing than a BTE, then RITE hearing aids may be the solution.
