How Hearing Aids Work
Hearing Aid Styles
Receiver-in-the-Ear (RITE) and MiniBTE
ITE hearing aids are similar to traditional BTEs, but rather than placing the microphone and amplifier behind the ear, these components are held in a plastic cartridge that sits in the opening of the ear. They are very easy to insert and remove when they have the right fit, making them ideal for those who suffer from arthritis and other manual dexterity concerns. There are three main variations of ITE devices, and they are worn in different areas of the ear, depending on the style.
In-the-Ear (ITE) hearing devices fit snugly in the curved recesses of the outer ear and are fitted using molds. ITE devices are available in half-shell, full-shell and smaller canal forms and slightly more visible when worn. ITEs are most beneficial to those with less severe forms of hearing loss. They are custom-made and fitted to conform to the exact dimensions of the user's ear anatomy. Some of them, like the canal aids, CIC and IIC styles, are very small and therefore an ideal choice for those who would rather not have their devices showing.
