Generally speaking, hearing aids are divided into five types: behind-the-ear (BTE), in-the-ear (ITE), receiver-in-the-ear (RITE), and in-the-ear (ITC).
- Behind-the-Ear (BTE): The device fits snugly behind your ear. The body of the hearing aid is attached to a custom earmold or thin tube.
- In-Ear (ITE): In-Ear (ITE) devices can fill your entire ear (called a full cup) or a portion of the earcup (called a half cup).
- Receiver in the Ear (RITE): The body of the ITE hearing aid sits behind your ear. A thin receiver wire runs from the body of the hearing aid to your outer ear and into your ear canal. The soft tip sits right inside your ear canal.
- In the Canal (ITC): In-canal (ITC) hearing aids are usually less noticeable. Smaller size, uses smaller batteries.
