Behind the ear (BTE)

BTE hearing aids rest comfortably behind the ear. Sound is directed from the hearing aid through tubing into the ear canal, and typically BTE hearing aids offer the most amplification.

Open fit (BTE)

Open Fit hearing systems direct sound from the hearing aid through a thin and discreet tube. Open Fit doesn't give you a ‘plugged up’ feeling, resulting in a more comfortable listening experience.

Reciever in the ear (RIE)

RIE hearing systems are a combination of BTE and ITE models. Sounds are collected

by a unit that sits behind the ear. A receiver sends sound into the ear canal, and transmits the amplified sounds directly to the ear. The result is exceptional sound quality.

In the ear (ITE)

ITE systems are custom moulded to fit your ear, providing excellent sound quality and a comfortable fit. Sizes vary, from a virtually invisible Completely-In-The-Canal model (CIC) to Full Shell (FS).
