Hearing Aid Types
Hearing aids have come a long way since the invention of the first electronic hearing aid in 1879. Now predominantly digital, there are a wide variety of hearing aid types available to suit all styles and tastes which can be programmed to suit your individual needs:
Invisible Hearing Aids:
Completely hidden deep within the ear canal, invisible hearing aids such as Lyric and Sound Lens are designed to offer people with mild to moderately-severe hearing loss, all the benefits of a conventional hearing aid whilst remaining completely undetectable to the outside world… find out more about invisible hearing aids
Behind The Ear Hearing Aids
This hearing aid type sits behind the outer ear and connects via a plastic tube to a custom made ear mould that sits in the ear canal and delivers sound into the ear.
In the ear Hearing Aids
In the ear hearing aids sit in the outer ear (the working parts are all contained within this ear mould) and may be used for a variety of hearing losses.
Completely In The Canal Hearing Aids
Smaller than In The Ear hearing aids, Completely in the Canal hearing aids sit right in the ear canal and are less visible, but are generally less suited to more severe hearing losses.
In the Canal (ITC) Hearing Aids
Slightly larger than the completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aid but smaller than the in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid.
Receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) Hearing Aids
Their two piece design allows them to be worn comfortably behind or on top of the ear whilst a very thin and discreet wire is connected to a tiny receiver (loudspeaker) in the ear canal.
Spectacle Hearing Aids
Specially made hearing devices that are built into spectacle frames, use a vibrating pad to pass the sound into the inner ear via the mastoid bone.
