Hearing Aid Styles & Brands

 Hearing aids come in a variety of styles,  sizes, and applications. Your provider will explain the benefits of each, and determine the best device for your hearing loss and your needs.

Hearing Aid Styles:

Invisible In-the-Canal:

This tiny style of hearing aid fits entirely within the ear canal, without the aid being visible.

Completely-In-the-Canal:

Larger than the Invisible-in-the-canal, this hearing aid fits entirely within the ear canal. It allows for more options than its smaller counterpart.

Receiver-In-the-Canal:

The most commonly fitted style of hearing aid, this hearing aid is highly flexible, fitting hearing loss ranging from mild to profound. The aid itself is tucked between the top of the ear and the head making it discrete in appearance.

Behind-the-Ear:

The aid itself is housed over the ear, attached to an earmold that fits in the ear. Typically these aids are reserved for profound hearing loss, children, or when the ear canal must be kept open and aerated for medical reasons.
