Hearing aid types

Behind-the-ear (BTE)

Fitting perfectly and easily

The Behind-the-ear, or BTE hearing aids are one of the most versatile hearing aid styles available. The speaker is housed in the hearing aid case behind the ear, with a clear plastic tube connecting it to an ear mould in the ear canal.  Suitable for a wide range of hearing loss, these hearing aids are often popular for their reliability and comfortable fit.

Quality comfort

High quality, high comfort

Behind-the-ear style hearing aids are a lot sleeker and slimmer than they used to be giving you a very comfortable fit. The microphone sits behind the ear and the receiver is connected via a thin, clear tube that is placed inside the ear. A custom ear mould can be created to allow for greater volume adjustment and comfort.

Longer life span

As the electronics of BTE hearing aids are cased in the hearing aid shell outside the ear, they are less susceptible to moisture and wax – some of the most common causes of hearing aid damage. This means these hearing aids may require fewer repairs and have a longer life span.

Longer battery life

Hear with ease

As BTE hearing aids can be bigger than other types of hearing aids, they may require a larger battery. Having a large battery provides longer battery life. Some BTE hearing aids are rechargeable, so you no longer need to replace batteries and simply recharge when needed.
