There are different types of hearing aids to suit all needs and style preferences.

Four main styles of hearing aids exist and suitability to each type will depend on factors such as degree of hearing loss and physical dexterity. These styles include:

bteBehind The Ear hearing aids are most suited for people with severe to profound hearing loss. The microphone which picks up sounds, the amplifier which makes sound louder and the receiver, which acts as a speaker and all housed in the portion of the hearing aid which sits behind the ear and is connected to the ear via a custom made ear mould. Traditionally BTEs are larger than other styles of hearing aids. Read More
ricUnlike BTEs, Receiver in the Canal hearing aids divide the main components of the aid into two main sections. A case behind the ear holds the aid’s amplifier and microphone, while a small bud that contains the receiver sits inside the ear canal. A small tube connects the receiver to the case. This allows for the aid to be smaller than BTEs and also allows for a more natural sound. RICs are generally more suited to people with a mild to moderate hearing loss. Read More
Custom Aids
customCustom hearing aids are also known as In-The-Ear hearing aids, as they are individually manufactured to suit a person’s ear. They range from the so-called Micro-CIC instrument, which fits completely in the ear canal and is almost totally invisible, to the full-shell hearing instrument, which completely fills the bowl of the ear. Custom aids are appropriate for people with mild to severe hearing loss. Read More
Waterproof Hearing Aids
waterproofTraditionally, active people who wore hearing aids had to choose between hearing and their favorite activities, such as swimming, surfing and hiking. No more! There are many types of water, dust and shock proof hearing aids meaning you no longer have to choose between great hearing and your favorite activities.
