There are several hearing aid styles available to suit different preferences, budgets, and levels of hearing loss. Here are some of the most common styles:
- Behind-the-ear (BTE): A small device that sits behind the ear with a tube that connects to an earpiece or earmold.
- Receiver-in-canal (RIC): Similar to BTE, but with a speaker (receiver) inside the ear canal, connected by a thin wire to the device behind the ear.
- In-the-ear (ITE): A custom-made hearing aid that sits inside the ear, filling up the bowl-shaped area.
- Completely-in-canal (CIC): Smaller than ITE, a custom-made hearing aid that fits deeply into the ear canal, making it almost invisible.
- Invisible-in-canal (IIC): Similar to CIC, but even smaller and designed to sit deeper in the ear canal, making it virtually invisible.
- Extended wear: A type of hearing aid that is placed deep in the ear canal and worn 24/7 for up to several months.
