CIC hearing aids are suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss. These custom-made hearing aids are extremely small which fit completely in the ear canal and are not visible unless you were to look directly into the ear.
ITC hearing aids fit in the ear canal and are slightly larger and extend a little farther out than CIC hearing aids. However, due to their slightly larger size, in-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids can fit more features than CICs. ITC hearing aids are also custom fit for your ear.
A custom-made ITE hearing aid is suitable for mild to some severe hearing losses. All the parts of the hearing aid are contained in a shell that fills in the outer part of the ear. The most visible of the custom-made hearing aids, these are slightly easier to handle and can contain the greatest number of additional features.
A hearing aid is connected to an earmould via a tube. These hearing aids are fairly visible and are suitable for those with mild to severe hearing loss.
The open-fit hearing aid is suitable for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. The hearing aid sits behind the ear and attaches to a tube which feeds into a small, soft earpiece.
A RIC or RITE hearing aid is suitable for mild to severe hearing losses. These hearing aids can be made with a very small behind-the-ear hearing aid and a thin wire connecting to a receiver that sits in the ear canal. Although visible, they are more discreet than the standard BTE hearing aid.
