There are several types of hearing aid available. We shall be able to recommend the most suitable type depending on your hearing loss and lifestyle:Invisible in the canal (IIC) hearing aid – appropriate for mild to severe hearing loss. Extremely discreet and near enough invisible hearing aid. This aid fits deep into the ear canal and closer to the ear drum. The fit is subject to the size of the person’s ear canal.
Completely in the canal (CIC) hearing aid – appropriate for mild to severe hearing loss, this is a small, very discreet hearing aid.
In the canal (ITC) hearing aid – is suitable for mild to severe hearing loss. This hearing aid is typically customised to fit. It is very small and discreet.
In the ear (ITE) hearing aid – works well for people with mild to severe hearing loss. Fits completely inside the ear opening, therefore it is the most visible of styles. However, because of its size, the battery lasts longer and can accommodate directional microphones and other additional features. Ideal for people with handling and dexterity issues.
Receiver in the canal (RIC) hearing aid – suitable for those with a mild to severe hearing loss. This hearing aid is similar in mechanics to the Behind the Ear, but is far smaller and more discreet. A very popular choice with our customers.
Behind the ear (BTE) hearing aid – this type of hearing aid can help people with all types of hearing loss – from mild to profound. The hearing aid sits behind the ear and connects to an acrylic ear mould which sits inside the ear
