Completely in the Canal (CIC) or mini CIC: A completely-in-the-canal is a hearing aid that is moulded to fit inside the ear canal. It improves hearing loss in adults from mild to moderate level. CIC hearing aids are custom-fit to the ears, they are one of the smallest custom hearing aid style, which is less visible than larger custom styles.
In-the-Canal: This is custom moulded and fits partly in the ear canal and lesser visible than larger custom styles. This type can improve mild to moderate hearing loss for adults. These aids can include controls for volume and memory that won’t fit on smaller custom hearing aids
In-the-Ear: Hearing aid has two types — one fills the outer ear (full shell) and another fills only the lower ear (half shell). They are both helpful for people with mild to severe hearing loss and are available with two microphones for better hearing in noise. These rechargeable aids are available in select styles and have larger battery provides longer battery life.
Behind-the-ear: Hearing aid fits over the top of the ear and rests behind the ear. A thin tube connects the hearing aid to an earpiece that fits in the ear canal. This type is appropriate for almost any type of hearing loss and of all ages. The aid is bigger in size which makes it easy to hold and adjust. It also ensures durability and has more features.
Receiver In Canal and Receiver In The Ear (RITE) both are similar to a behind-the-ear hearing aid with a speaker or receiver that sits in the ear canal. The speaker or the receiver is connected to the piece behind the ear through a tiny wire.
Such hearing aids are typically smaller and more discreet than a BTE. Its bigger size provides more durability and allows for more features – rechargeable available in select styles.
