Types of Hearing Aids

CIC hearing aid

Completely-in-Canal (CIC)

Completely-in-Canal hearing aids are the most discreet option available. They fit entirely inside the ear canal, making them virtually invisible. CIC hearing aids are ideal for mild to moderate hearing loss and are designed for users who prioritize discretion.
IIC hearing aid

Invisible-in-Canal (IIC)

Invisible-in-Canal hearing aids are the smallest and most discreet hearing aids available. They fit deep inside the ear canal, making them virtually invisible. IIC hearing aids are suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss and offer a high level of discretion.
ReSound GN hearing aids in charger


Rechargeable hearing aids provide an eco-friendly and convenient solution, eliminating the need for frequent battery changes. They come with user-friendly charging stations, offering reliable all-day support for a wide range of hearing losses.
ReSound hearing aid

Receiver-in-Canal (RIC)

Receiver-in-Canal hearing aids feature a small casing that sits behind the ear and a thin wire with the receiver in the ear canal. RIC hearing aids provide excellent sound quality, comfort, and a discreet appearance. They are suitable for various degrees of hearing loss.
ReSound hearing aid


Open-fit hearing aids are similar to RIC hearing aids but with a more open design. They allow for natural sound passage and are particularly beneficial for individuals with high-frequency hearing loss. Open-fit hearing aids are comfortable and minimize the "plugged" feeling some users may experience.
Black hearing aid

Behind-the-Ear (BTE)

Behind-the-Ear hearing aids are designed to rest comfortably behind the ear. They are known for their durability and ability to accommodate a wide range of hearing losses. BTE hearing aids are easy to handle and maintain, making them a popular choice among users of all ages.
ITE hearing aid

In-the-Ear (ITE)

In-the-Ear hearing aids are custom-made to fit inside the ear canal. They are discreet and offer a natural look. ITE hearing aids are suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss and are easy to insert and remove.
ITC hearing aid

In-the-Canal (ITC)

In-the-Canal hearing aids are smaller than ITE models and fit partly in the ear canal. They are less visible than BTE or ITE options while still providing excellent sound quality. ITC hearing aids are suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss.
