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.
The right combination of hearing aid style and features will allow you to hear your best days
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.
