Hearing aid styles
Hearing aids can be worn behind the ear, in the ear or even completely in the ear canal. Your hearing needs, vision and dexterity, as well as budget and lifestyle are all factors that determine the best style for you. We offer all styles, and some even have rechargeable batteries.
- Behind-the-ear styles may be worn with or without an earmold. The body of the hearing aid is worn behind the ear and a receiver tube or earmold is worn in the ear. These devices are suitable for individuals with mild-to-profound hearing loss.
- In-the-ear hearing aids may be full or half shell and are worn in the outer portion of the ear. They are easily worn by people with limited dexterity and mild-to-severe hearing loss.
- In-the-canal hearing aids are either completely invisible or nearly invisible. They are worn in the ear canal and are for mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
