Frequent Q&A

If you’re always on the go, Miracle-Ear’s ITE hearing aids  are molded to fit your ears, allowing them to stay securely in place through all your activities.

Using a small electrical wire instead of an ear hook and a dark, opaque ear dome, RIC hearing aids are more discreet than other over-the-ear hearing aids.

ITE hearing aids are custom molded to sit inside the ear, meaning they’re also extremely discreet and comfortable to wear all day. 

All hearing aids magnify sounds from both high- and low-frequency ranges, offering listening improvements in all kinds of environments and situations. RICs often offer a broader fitting range than customs and are smaller in size than a BTE while still providing a fair amount of power, generally. They’re more discreet than a BTE.

BTE hearing aids have the most powerful sound amplification, making them a great option for people who want essential aid functions at a great value. 

ITE hearing aid molds can be completed in just 10 minutes. Once the mold is complete, your custom hearing aids will be made to fit the exact contours of your ears, making your devices comfortable to wear all day long.

Since BTE hearing aids are larger than most styles, they’re able to house larger batteries with longer lifespans. Hearing aids with rechargeable batteries can be charged in as little as 30 minutes. After a quick half-hour charge, you’ll be ready to wear your hearing aids for up to eight hours. With an overnight charge, they’ll last up to 24 hours, so you can enjoy more than an entire day of sound.
