Invisible-In-Canal (IIC) – the tiny & often invisible hearing aids
These are a good choice if you have mild to moderate hearing loss. They are custom-fitted and come in a choice of colors. IICs are unique because they’re inserted deep into the ear canal, so depending on your ear shape, they’re often invisible when worn. This is a huge advantage for the style-conscious wearer.
Completely-In-Canal (CIC) – MOSTLY INVISIBLE HEARING AIDS (UNLESS YOU SEARCH FOR THEM)
Unlike the IICs, these aids are comfortably inserted and extracted from your ear, with the small “handle” peeping out the side. They are custom-made and mostly invisible, as well as coming in a range of colors to match the skin-tone of your inner ear. They’re the perfect choice if you have mild to moderate hearing loss.
In-The-Canal (ITC) – Discreet but visible
ITC hearing aids feature a custom-fit, skin-matching colors, and can be inserted and extracted with ease. Made to look as if they are a part of your natural ear, these aids are the perfect choice if your hearing is diminishing at a steady pace. Suitable for mild to mildly severe hearing losses.
In-The-Ear (ITE) – Custom fitted hearing aids that fit within the outer portion of the ear
Mildly severe to severe hearing loss patients may find ITE hearing aids beneficial due to their sleek design that fits perfectly to the ear’s outer entrance. They are incredibly comfortable to wear and offer maximum hearing coverage. Available in a variety of colors, they’re custom made and can be matched to your skin tone.
Receiver-In-Canal (RIC) – TINY, WELL HIDDEN AND EASY TO FIT. IDEAL AS FIRST TIME HEARING AIDS
Barely visible when worn, the RIC style is an instrument in which the receiver, or speaker, is inside the ear canal. Thin electrical wires are used instead of a plastic acoustical tube, reducing distortion. RIC hearing aids provide a comfortable, open fit and are perfect for mild to moderate hearing loss.
Behind-The-Ear (BTE) – The most common style of hearing aid
When you think “hearing aid” – the chances are you’re thinking of the BTE design. Usually worn by moderate to severe hearing loss patients, the technology is housed in the casing of these hearing aids, ensuring they rest comfortably behind the ear while the clear plastic acoustical tube sends the amplified sounds into a customized earmold that’s fitted inside the canal. Available in many different colors, they come with easy to use buttons and are highly discreet.
“I have never considered going anywhere else”
My Association with Selective Hearing goes back many years. I am not on my fourth set of hearing aids, each one has been a new upgrade of a ReSound product. To have streaming from T.V. has added pleasure to enjoy it. I am so comfortable knowing that I can call on the staff of Selective Hearing whenever I need help. They have always been available to help me. I have never considered going anywhere else for aids! Their products and staff are excellent!
