This is the smallest of custom made devices. They fit deep in the ear canal and are invisible from the outside of the ear. These devices are most appropriate for a mild to moderate hearing loss.
This small custom device fits completely into the ear. This hearing aid style is most appropriate for a mild to moderate hearing loss.
This custom hearing aid style is molded to fit in the lower portion of the outer ear. It is an excellent choice for individuals with visual and dexterity challenges because the components are slightly larger and are easier to handle. Also with the increase in space, components such as directional microphones can be used to improve speech understanding in noisy environments. These devices can be fit on hearing losses that range from mild to severe.
This custom hearing device is the largest of the custom molded solutions. It is molded to fill the outer ear opening. Due to the increased size, this solution allows for a larger battery and more manual controls that can be adjusted by the patient. This style can be fit on hearing losses ranging from mild to severe.
Mini BTEs are designed to hide behind the outer ear and have ultra-thin tubing to discreetly route sound into the ear. The tubing connects to a soft tip that sits in the ear canal but doesn’t occlude it. The result is a natural, open feeling as airflow and sound enter the ear naturally around the tip, while amplified sound enters through the tip. This is known as “open fitting” and is recommended for mild-to-moderate high frequency losses.
This style of device is fit over the ear with the speaker of the instrument placed into the ear canal and coupled with a dome or an ear mold. This style of device is very discreet and allows for the ear canal to remain open and sound quality to be more natural. This style of hearing aid is appropriate for mild to moderate high frequency losses.
BTEs with earmolds fit the largest range of hearing losses. Since the hearing aid processor is worn behind the ear, the size and power options available are greater. A custom mold allows for the sound to be carried into the canal without the risk of feedback. This style of hearing aid is most appropriate for moderate to profound hearing losses.
