Hearing Aid

What are the available options based on your hearing loss? Our audiologists will guide you to choose the most suitable hearing aid according to your hearing level, lifestyle, personal preference, budget etc.

Behind-the-ear (BTE)

  • Can be worn behind the ear with a tube to a custom earmold placed in the outer ear
  • For people with mild to profound hearing loss
  • Durable; larger size easier to handle and maintain; separate earmold can be easily replaced; easy to use with assistive listening devices
  • Can be used by all ages including infants or children


Receiver-in-the-Canal (RIC)

  • Ultra-small, lightweight, behind-the-ear (BTE) style that sits snugly behind the ear and connects to the ear with a nearly invisible thin tube
  • More natural sound; less occlusion than a traditional BTE


In-the-Ear (ITE) Full Shell

  • Fits completely in the outer ear (custom made)
  • Small size, can be used with add-on accessories, custom fit
  • For people with mild to severe hearing loss, not usually for children
