These Instruments are custom-made to fit within your entire ear. While being more visible, this style offers a larger battery size, and larger volume wheel for ease of operation.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

These hearing instruments rests behind the ear while a clear plastic tube then directs amplified sound into an earmold inside the ear canal. They are the most reliable and most powerful of hearing instruments. Also available in a mini and micro size for improved cosmetics.

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC) or Canal-Receiver-Technology (CRT)

This very small and feather light hearing instrument rests behind the ear. The ergonomic design, combined with extremely thin tubing, results in a uniquely satisfying cosmetic solution. The receiver (speaker) resides within the ear canal to deliver superior sound clarity.
