Choose Your Hearing Aid Style

The choice of a hearing aid style is a personal one, and depends on your lifestyle, desired aesthetic appeal, degree of hearing loss, and other factors. The “shell” or “case” is the outer covering of a hearing aid, and determines its style. Of the many parts of a hearing aid, style can make a big difference to your overall satisfaction.

Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC) Style:

Tiny is the new small! About the size of a raspberry, Beltone Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC) hearing aids are the instruments of choice for those who desire hearing help that can’t be seen.

      • “Made-for-you” shape for superior fit.
      • Matches the contours of your ear.
      • Red and blue shells for easy identification.
Completely-In-Canal (CIC) Style:

CIC style hearing aids are most effective when treating mild-to-moderate hearing loss. Hearing aid wearers love them as they provide the benefit of improved hearing, with no one the wiser.

      • Custom-crafted for a perfectly tailored fit.
      • Worn completely within ear canal for greater discretion.
      • Maximum comfort.
      • Tiny design.
Full Shell Style:

Full-Shell style hearing devices partially-to-fully fill the outer ear. They are custom manufactured to fit securely, and be as aesthetically pleasing as possible. All components reside within a lightweight plastic shell which is simple to insert and remove. Their bigger size accommodates a variety of feature options, including special controls that are easy to adjust.

      • Custom-made to your ear.
      • Easy to insert/remove.
      • Bigger size accommodates multiple features.
      • Use larger, longer-lasting batteries.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE) Style:

Easy-to-wear BTE devices are small, and feature a curved casing designed to nestle comfortably behind the ear. By matching flesh tone or hair color, they hide with ease. A transparent tube connects the device to a custom-created ear mold worn in your ear canal. Ear molds are lightweight and comfortable, making BTE hearing aids easy to wear all day.

BTE style hearing aids can be used by just about everyone. They assist the entire spectrum of hearing loss, from mild to severe. Additionally, they are budget friendly, and adapt to most lifestyles.

Microphone-In-Helix (MIH) Style:

The ingenious construction of the MIC style hearing aid takes advantage of the ear’s anatomy to provide near-to-natural sound quality, and outstanding appearance. By placing the microphone in the curved portion of your ear, it’s protected from wind noise. This makes the MIC style perfect for active individuals who spend time outdoors.

      • New Fit-and-Go design for superb hearing in a single office visit.
      • Uses ear’s natural contours for amazing sound quality.
      • In-the-ear style is easy to use, comfortable to wear.
