In the Ear (ITE) Hearing Aids
When you need flexibility, the in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid outshines most other hearing aids available. In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids can accommodate almost all hearing aid candidates. These devices provide a variety of vital features required by many struggling with hearing loss. Some of the benefits include:
- Larger sound: In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids have a larger sound amplifier that provides a full sound directly into the ear canal.
- Maximum control: The large size is ideal for those with arthritis that want to control their sound input. If you prefer to have direct access to handle and adjust your sound, in-the-ear (ITE) aids may be the best choice for you.
- Special features: Most in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids include a telephone switch and directional microphone.
In-the-Ear (ITE) vs. Behind-the-Ear (BTE)
In-the-Ear (ITE) Hearing Aids – FullThe style of hearing aid you choose depends on what features you want and what makes you most comfortable. Our hearing aids come in a range of styles to fit your exact requirements.
A BTE hearing aid fits behind your ear, with a small tube that connects to a molded earpiece in your ear canal. They are able to hold a larger battery and are capable of significant amplification.
An ITE hearing aid, on the other hand, fits into your ear canal. They are less visible than the BTE hearing aids and less susceptible to wind noise. For your comfort and convenience, it’s available in a larger full-shell or a smaller half-shell design.
