There Are Different Types of Hearing Aids

​Miracle-Ear® products feature advanced technology to improve your hearing. But the hearing aids come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and styles so you can choose the one that best fits your individual needs.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)
– This is the most traditional model: a small, curved case that fits behind the ear with a thin, transparent tube that runs into the ear canal. Newer models are far less visible than previous generation hearing aids. The BTE hearing aid is highly versatile, providing excellent treatment for most forms of hearing loss.

Open-fit Behind-The-Ear (BTE) – This is a smaller BTE with an “open-fit” that sits inside the ear canal yet prevents the ears from feeling occluded or plugged-up. This option is very comfortable and a great choice for people with mild to moderate hearing loss who are sensitive to having things in their ears.

Receiver-In-The-Canal (RIC) – This is a discreet, comfortable design that is easy to fit. It sits inside the ear canal similar to the BTE. A great choice for those with mild to moderate hearing loss who are sensitive to having things in their ears.

Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC) – Molded to fit deep within the ear, CICs are nearly invisible and tend to pick up less external (e.g. wind) noise because they’re protected by the ear itself. See a Miracle-Ear consultant to determine if you’re a candidate for this style. Typically appropriate for mild to moderate hearing loss.​

In-The-Canal (ITC) — Smaller than an ITE and very discreet, the ITC fits partly into the ear canal. Due to its small size, the ITC comes with the option of remote control accessories for easy adjustment. Best for people with mild to moderate hearing loss.

​In-The-Ear (ITE)  – This small device is worn inside the outer ear and designed to match the wearer’s skin tone. It is discreet, yet offers many features and options that smaller hearing aids can’t. Best for people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss.
