Hearing aids are the first step to improving your communication abilities. There are several different styles of hearing aids available. Which style is best for you depends on a number of factors including the shape and severity of your hearing loss andthe size of your ear. Examples of different styles of daily wear hearing devices are shown below.
The investment you make in your hearing aids is not related to the style of the hearing aid, but rather is tied to the sophistication of the technology in the hearing aids. The more sophisticated the hearing aids, the better they will perform in more challenging listening environments. The cost of hearing aids increases as the sophistication of the technology increases.
The clinicians at the Audiology Clinic will make the most appropriate recommendation to ensure the style and level of hearing aid technology will match your budget, communication needs and expectations.

Completely-In-the-Canal (CIC) Technology.
For a completely unobtrusive look, choose this small-but-effective CIC device. It fits snugly—and near invisibly—in your ear canal. Each device is custom fitted to your ear’s shape. No one besides you will know it’s there.
In-The-Canal (ITC) Technology
Want something a bit larger? Choose an ITC aid that fits almost entirely within the ear canal. It’s easy to insert and remove. Like the CIC model, it’s custom fitted to your measurements.
In-The-Ear (ITE) Technology
An ITC device completely fills the outer ear bowl. Others will barely notice your hearing aid, but you’ll get the same clarity and functional ease you deserve.
Behind-The-Ear (BTE) Technology
For users who want more flexible, easy-to-handle hearing aid, choose a BTE. You’ll wear this device behind the ear. Like the previous options, a BTE requires a custom fit.
If you like the convenience of a unit that blends virtual invisibility with the ease of a BTE device, choose this option. A small housing rests behind the ear while a clear tube runs directly into the ear bowl.
Receiver-In-Canal/Receiver-In-The-Ear (RIC/RITE) Technology.
This aid works by placing a speaker, or receiver, in the ear canal and a reduced-size housing behind the ear. This option is the choice for users who want the most discrete and desirable look.
