Which Hearing Aid?
BTE’s typically require an ear-mould and are used for more severe to profound hearing loss. BTE’s come in various sizes and colours and sit comfortably behind the ear. They are designed for durability and power, are more robust and easier to manage. Rechargeable devices are available, or you may prefer disposable batteries.
RIC hearing aids also sit comfortably behind the ear; however, they are more discreet than BTE’s. The acoustic amplifier in these devices sits in the ear, rather than behind the ear. Small sleeve custom moulds are recommended for comfort and to ensure the acoustic component is positioned perfectly for an optimal listening experience. These devices come in a range of colours. Rechargeable devices are available, or you may prefer disposable batteries.
The size of a custom device depends on your degree of hearing loss and power requirements. These devices require good dexterity to manage, come in a range of colours and are custom fit to the outer portion of your ear.
