In-the-ear (ITE) Hearing Aids

This hearing aid is placed like an earplug in the ear canal. Once inside, it is virtually invisible to the naked eye. 

Some devices have an antenna-shaped tab to pull them out. In-the-ear hearing aids are available in different designs, which differ in size, performance and fit. To ensure optimal comfort, the hearing care professional takes a print (known as an impression) of your ear canal to customise the shell.
