In the Ear (ITE) Hearing Aids
In-the-ear hearing aids (ITEs) include all hearing aids that are worn entirely in the ear (rather than behind it), including in-the-canal (ITC) and invisible in the canal or “invisible” hearing aids.
In the ear hearing aids can also mean the larger one-piece hearing devices pictured here. These aids fill the entire bowl of the ear and house all components in this single, custom-fitted piece.
Advantages of In-the-Ear Hearing Aids
- Easy to handle and insert
- Convenient controls
- Able to fit larger (and longer lasting) battery than smaller styles
Disadvantages of In-the-Ear Hearing Aids
- Somewhat conspicuous
- Can create “plugged up” feeling
- More susceptible to moisture problems than behind-the-ear aids
Are ITE hearing aids right for you?
In-the-ear hearing aids may be a good choice for you if you have mild to severe hearing loss and good dexterity in your hands.
