Custom Made In the Ear

In the ear hearing aids are custom made to fit the shape of your ear. A mould is taken of your ear by one of our audiologists and this is sent off to the manufacturer to create your hearing aid.

There are different types and sizes of in the ear hearing aids and not each type is suitable for everyone due to ear shape and ear canal size.

Full Shell Hearing Aids

These are the largest and most powerful out of the in the ear models making them suitable for all types of hearing loss. Featuring Bluetooth connection capabilities and even rechargeable options with some manufacturers.

Half Shell Hearing Aids

These sit visibly in the ear, the larger size allows them to have larger control buttons and a longer battery life compared to the IIC models. Due to the larger size and longer battery life the half shell hearing aids also have great features such as connectivity to your TV or smart phone.

In the Canal (ITC)

As the ITC hearing aids are slightly larger in size they have additional features such as Bluetooth and you have more control over the sound levels. The larger size also makes them easier to handle when it comes to changing batteries.
