Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are placed over the ear and are connected with tubing to custom earpieces.

 

ite

In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids fill the bowl of the ear and part of the ear canal.

In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids are smaller versions of ITEs and fill the ear canal.

 

 

cic

Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids are the smallest devices and fit completely within the ear canal.

 

Your particular hearing loss and listening needs, the size and shape of your ear, and the dexterity of your hands will all be considered in deciding what type of hearing aid is best for you.
