Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids

Behind-the-Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids

Behind the EarBehind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids are among the most common and traditional styles. The device rests behind or on top of your outer ear, similar to the way sunglasses sit. A transparent rubber tube feeds amplified sound from the device’s speaker directly to the ear canal. A custom earmold secures the tubing to the ear.

Size and Power Advantage

Because these aids sit outside the ear, they aren’t limited by space inside the canal. Therefore, they can accommodate a larger battery, which means longer battery life and stronger amplifications. Consequently, BTE hearing aids can help individuals with varying degrees of hearing loss, ranging from moderate to profound. BTE devices produce minimal acoustic feedback while offering clear and powerful sound.

Additionally, these aids tend to be a good choice for patients with vision and dexterity limitations. The large device is easier to insert and maintain than smaller, more compact styles. The controls are also larger so you can operate them with ease.

Pediatric Suitability

For children with hearing loss, BTE devices are an excellent option. BTE aids pair well with various earmolds, ensuring a proper fit for growing children. The earmold material is soft and comfortable for tiny ears. BTE aids are also easier to clean since the earmold, the only portion that comes in contact with wax, is removable and can be washed separate from the circuitry. BTE hearing aids are durable in tough conditions, including exposure to moisture, sweat, and dust.

High-tech Convenience

BTE aids also offer additional features including Bluetooth capability. This allows for the convenience of hands-free phone use and television or computer streaming. With the option of direct audio input, BTE aids can connect to FM systems for classroom use, as well as, MP3 players and other audio devices.
