Hearing Aid Styles 

Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) 
Fits discreetly into the ear canal and custom made from a mould of the inner ear making them comfortable to wear. 
Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) 
Sits deeper in the ear than CIC hearing aids making them almost completely invisible when worn, custom made from a mould of the inner ear making them comfortable to wear. 
In-the-canal (ITC) 
Fits at the entrance of the ear canal making them inconspicuous but more visible than CIC and IIC styles. Custom made from a mould of the inner ear making them comfortable to wear. 
Half/Full Shell in-the-ear (ITE) 
More visible than ITC, CIC and IIC styles sitting at the edge of the ear canal, custom made from a mould of the inner ear making them comfortable to wear. 
As their names indicate, half shells cover the lower half of the inner ear while full shells cover the entire inner ear. 
Behind-the-ear (BTE) 
All electrical components are housed in a case that sits behind the ear, delivering sound through a thin tube connected to a custom made mould of the inner ear. The most powerful style, even suitable for profound hearing loss. 
Receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) 
*most popular* 
A hybrid of BTE and ITC styles. What makes RITEs different is how the sound is delivered directly into the ear canal from a speaker at the end of a receiver wire that sits in the ear. Uses ‘domes’ rather than custom moulds which are small, rubber tips similar to those that come with in the ear headphones, which come in a variety of sizes to to almost anyone.

The Process of Getting Hearing Aids 

Step 1. 
First of all we will perform a comprehensive hearing test 
to ensure that you really do need hearing aids, and your 
hearing loss is not being caused by anything curable 
such as earwax build up or an ear infection. 
Step 2. 
Following the test your Audiologist will review test 
results and explain how hearing aids work. You will 
discuss your lifestyle and budget, which along with your 
type of hearing loss will help your Audiologist determine 
some great options to suit your specific needs. 
After agreeing on the aid and choosing any extras such 
as the colour or accessories, we will order it and book you 
in for a fitting appointment typically the following week. 
Step 3. 
You get your new hearing aids! 
During the fitting appointment your Audiologist will put 
them on you to make sure they fit comfortably and adjust 
the sound to your liking. You will also be shown how to 
perform routine maintenance such as changing the wax 
filters, domes and batteries. 
Now you’re all set and can start adjusting to living with 
hearing aids. The next time you will see us will be during 
a follow up appointment in two weeks time. 
Step 4. 
It’s likely that after you’ve had time to adjust to life with 
hearing aids you’ll have some questions. 
During the follow up appointment we will see how 
you’ve gotten on with your hearing aids and address any 
questions or issues you may be having. 
When you need more wax filters, batteries, domes or 
other accessories we can sell them to you so you know 
you’ll be receiving the correct ones. If you experience any 
issues with your hearing aids, book an appointment free 
of charge or get advice over the phone as we will provide 
free servicing for their lifetime.
