What Are The Types of Hearing Aids?

Hearing aids are small electronic devices that you wear in or behind your ear. It makes some sounds louder for a person with hearing loss. Although they will not restore hearing loss, hearing aids can greatly improve your hearing by amplifying sounds that you’ve had trouble hearing.

Our audiologists will work with you to select the best personalized hearing aids based on some of the following factors: The degree of hearing loss, power and options requirements, manual dexterity abilities, and cosmetic concerns.

The most common styles are listed below:

  • Receiver-in-canal (RIC)

  • In-the-canal (ITC)
  • In-the-ear (ITE)
