In The Ear (ITE)

ITEs sit within the outer ear. They are suitable for people with a higher degree of hearing loss and can include the benefits of volume control and a programming button.

Completely in the Canal (CIC)

CIC units fit into the actual ear canal. This makes them popular for their visual appeal, but they may not be sufficient for people with severe hearing loss.

Behind The Ear (BTE)

These models contain electronics that are housed within a unit that sits behind the ear, with sound directed via a discreet tube to an earpiece in the canal. Certain BTEs can connect to TV sets, mobile phones, MP3 players and other compatible devices. Units include the benefit of volume control and a programming button.

Receiver in the Ear (RITE)

These units are extremely lightweight and are almost invisible. All electronics are housed within a casing outside the wearer’s ear, and a thin tube carries a wire and speaker close to the ear drum. Most models can connect to a TV, mobile phone, MP3 player or other devices such as a computer.
