Hearing Aid Styles

Hearing Aid Styles

Advances in hearing aid technology means you now have more choice and features than ever before.

Depending on your hearing loss and requirements, you may have a choice between a number of different hearing aid styles.

Hearing instruments are divided into three main types:

CIC (Completely-In-The-Canal)

These hearing aids are one of the smaller styles. They can be nearly invisible but some people with more severe hearing losses or small ear canals may not be able to wear them.

ITEs (In-The-Ear)

They are slightly larger than the completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids so that they can accommodate more features and local controls.

BTEs (Behind-The-Ear)

Custom shaped mould will guide the sound into the ear canal. BTE hearing instruments are able to fit a large range of hearing loss and are often easiest to manipulate.

Additional Hearing Styles

Micro BTE

Are hearing aids that also sit behind the ear like standard BTE styles, but the sound is directed into the ear canal by a very thin, flexible tubing. Micro BTEs very discreet and almost invisible.

RITE (Receiver-In-The-Ear)

Are hearing aids that are elegant and discreet Behind-The-Ear solution. The speaker unit is located in the ear canal, allowing for a very clear and natural sound.

Hearing loss, unless caused by a health condition or accident, deteriorates gradually. It can be difficult for an individual to realize at first. Often the symptoms of hearing loss are noticed by surrounding friends and family first.

You could be  eligible for the voucher component of the Hearing Services Program if you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident 21 years or older and you meet certain eligibility requirements.  This would enable you to free hearing aids and services.
