Hearing Aid Types

Behind-the-ear (BTE)

Power and comfort.

BTE hearing aids are the most powerful solutions available. The receiver, microphone and amplifier are all housed together behind the ear, with a clear plastic tube connecting the shell to an earmold in the ear. The larger size allows for many features and a long-lasting battery life. BTEs are also known to be extremely durable.

Have severe hearing loss?

Behind-the-Ear hearing aids offer the most powerful sound amplification out of any style, making them suitable for all levels of hearing loss—particularly those with profound and/or high-frequency hearing loss.

Easy to use and long-lasting

Since all sensitive electronics rest in the case outside of the ear, BTE styles are less susceptible to moisture and wax—the two leading causes of hearing aid damage. Even when those pests are present, they can often be easily cleared out of the tubing with an air blower or washed from the ear mold by detaching and soaking it in warm, soapy water. The result? Fewer repairs and longer lifespan.

Becuase BTE hearing aids are larger than other styles, they are able to pack in the most advanced features, like direct streaming and rechargeability. They also have larger batteries, which means longer battery life.

BTE hearing aid solutions

BTE hearing aids are characterized by being innovative, light and comfortable, directing the sound into the ear canal, leaving the ear open.As the name suggests, the main element of a behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid is a small plastic case containing all of the aid’s electronic parts, which fits comfortably behind the wearer’s ear. A thin, transparent tube connects the case to a soft, custom earmold that fits inside the ear canal. Microphones contained in the case pick up and amplify sound.
