BTE hearing aids consist of the plastic casing that's placed behind the ear and a small ear mold to hold it in place.
BTEs are capable of providing more output and are compatible with more severe degrees of hearing loss. However, they are very versatile and can be used for nearly any kind of hearing loss.
Unlike Behind-the-ear hearing aids, In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids are placed inside the ear and consist of only one part: the shell. The electronics are built into the shell, which is custom-made from an impression of the user’s ear canal.
This type of hearing aid is often 100% automatically controlled, but on some models it’s possible to adjust using a remote control or a smartphone app. Good eyesight and dexterity makes it easier to maintain and handle an ITE hearing aid.
Completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids are placed deep within the ear canal and are almost invisible.
Because they are placed so deep, there are some natural acoustical advantages. You get reduced wind noise, and it’s easier to speak on the phone using a normal handset. It’s also easier to determine from which direction sounds are coming.
The CIC is usually fully automatic and has no space for any additional manual controls. The battery is located in the lid, which also functions as its on/off switch.
A fuller, richer soundscape - from the softest whispers to the exciting roar of the crowd.
EVOKE analyses your sound environment and reacts to changes for natural, effortless hearing.
Even a great hearing aid has always sounded like a hearing aid – until now.
