IN-THE-EAR HEARING AIDS
Hearing aids worn in the ear are generally custom-fit based on an impression of the ear. There are a variety of ITE styles that are available.
In-the-Ear or Full Shell Styles
Full shell instruments fill the entire outer ear bowl. Due to their larger size, they allow for more features and functions. These include a larger battery, directional microphones, volume controls, and can fit larger receivers for more severe hearing losses. They are designed for mild to severe hearing losses.
In-the-Canal or Half Shell Styles
Half shell instruments sit in the lower portion of the outer ear bowl. Since they are slightly larger than the CIC, they are able to hold additional features. These include a larger battery, directional microphones, and volume controls. They are designed for mild to moderate hearing loss.
Complete In-the-Canal (CIC) Styles
Complete in-the-canal (CIC) instruments fit deeply into the ear canal. Slightly larger than the IIC, they are still relatively hard to see. They are designed for mild to moderate hearing loss.
Invisible In-the-Canal (IIC) Styles
Invisible in-the-canal (IIC) instruments are the smallest custom hearing aids available. They sit in the second bend of the canal and are nearly invisible to the naked eye. They are designed for mild to moderate hearing loss.
