Hearing Aid Styles

Explore the variety of hearing aid styles available to find the perfect fit for you.

Hearing Aid Styles

Modern hearing aids come in a variety of styles, each designed to meet different preferences and degrees of hearing loss. These styles range from behind-the-ear (BTE) models, which are known for their versatility and power, to in-the-ear (ITE) and in-the-canal (ITC) options that offer a more discreet appearance. Completely-in-canal (CIC) and invisible-in-canal (IIC) hearing aids are the smallest and most inconspicuous, ideal for those seeking minimal visibility. Each style incorporates advanced features such as digital sound processing, wireless connectivity, and personalized fitting options, ensuring that users can find the perfect match for their hearing needs and lifestyle.

Here are the three main styles of hearing aids.

Receiver In Canal (RIC)

A Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) hearing aid is a type of hearing device where the receiver (or speaker) is placed directly in the ear canal, connected by a thin wire to the main body of the aid that sits behind the ear. RIC hearing aids are suitable for individuals with mild to severe hearing loss, letting in natural sounds and minimizing occlusion or the "plugged up" feeling.

In The Canal (ITC)

An In-the-Canal (ITC) hearing aid is a custom-fit device that sits partially in the ear canal, making it less visible than larger styles. ITC hearing aids are ideal for individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss, offering a balance of discreetness and power.

Invisible In Canal (IIC)

An Invisible-in-Canal (IIC) hearing aid is the smallest custom-fit hearing device, designed to sit deep within the ear canal, making it virtually invisible. IIC hearing aids are suitable for individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss, offering maximum discretion without sacrificing sound quality.

Coming to see Cordero was a pleasure, he completed a hearing test and found I had something called cookie bite hearing loss with has developed over time .
