Hearing aids come in a variety of styles and sizes.

Style and technology level are independent decisions. All technology levels come in all styles of hearing aids. Your hearing difficulties and your lifestyle are the key factors in determining what style and level of technology would serve you best. We have classified the levels of technology into five categories ranging from the most technologically advanced to the most basic. We will discuss your everyday listening environments and options with you to help you find the solution that is most appropriate for you.

The pictures below show the various styles of hearing aids that are available. There are advantages and disadvantages for all of them. You can learn more information about the various hearing aid styles and technological differences prior to discussing it with us.

RIC or RITE (Receiver-in-the-Ear) Hearing Aids
A case with most of the components also sits on top and behind the ear (as with a BTE), but the receiver (speaker) is placed in the ear canal and connected to the case with a thin wire. It is fit in your ear with a generic dome, or a custom-made earmold.
