Behind the Ear Hearing Aid

What are Behind the Ear Hearing Aids?

Behind the ear hearing aids are hearing aids you wear outside your ear. A small tube then routes the sound down into your ear canal. Behind the ear hearing aids provide the most amplification, making it the preferred solution for users with severe-to-profound hearing loss. Behind the ear hearing aids are available in many sizes, shapes, and colour options. You can choose one that matches your skin tone or hair colour.

Receiver in Ear Hearing Aids

What are Receiver in the Ear Hearing Aids?

Receiver in the ear hearing aids are one of the most popular types of hearing aids thanks to their ease of wearing and effectiveness. The receiver in the ear hearing aid consists of a small casing that comfortably sits behind the ear. The casing houses all of the electronic components of the hearing aid, except the receiver. An enclosed wire transmits sound to the receiver that rests in the ear canal.

Why Choose a Receiver in the Ear Hearing Aid?
  • Less susceptible to feedback sounds from your hearing aids

  • Good at amplifying high-pitched sounds, giving you a clearer, more natural sound quality

  • Small, discreet

  • Light and easy to wear

  • Available in many different colours

Receiver in the Ear vs. Behind the Ear

The difference between Receiver-in-Ear (RIE) and Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids is that on an RIE the receiver sits directly in your ear, while BTE hearing aids have the receiver built into the body of the hearing aid.
