I don’t want people to know I have a hearing loss. Can I get an invisible hearing aid?
Our hearing aid styles include:
- Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearings aids fit comfortably over or behind your ear. A rubber tip or custom ear mold directs the sound into your ear. BTEs are the most durable hearing aids. We carry traditional, super-power and mini BTEs.
- In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids are custom-designed to fit directly in your ears. This is a more conventional style, which has been used for many years, but with the newest technology built inside, they have become quite sophisticated. ITE hearing aids come in different sizes. The size you need will depend on your level of hearing loss.
- Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aids fit much more deeply into the ear canal than ITEs. These tiny, custom-designed devices are the most discreet hearing aid option. Because of their size, however, IIC hearing aids are only recommended for people with mild to moderate hearing loss.
- Receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) hearing aids feature the receiver or speaker inside the ear canal, which connects to the “behind-the-ear” portion of the device with a slim, plastic-coated wire. In many cases, the ear canal remains almost completely open. This “open-fit” design makes these devices so comfortable that many people say they don’t even feel them at all! RITE devices have quickly become the most popular sellers in the entire hearing aid industry.
