Choose Your Hearing Aid Style

The “shell” or “case” is the outer covering of a hearing aid, and determines its style. Of the many parts of a hearing aid, style can make a big difference to your overall satisfaction. Beltone's two main style categories are Behind-the-Ear (BTE) and Custom hearing aids.

In-the-Canal (ITC) Style

ITC-style hearing aids are custom-made, based on an impression taken of your ear canal and the surrounding area. They are slightly larger than completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids, but still considered cosmetically appealing. All of the components in an ITC hearing aid are encased within a lightweight plastic shell. Their medium size makes them a great choice for push button controls. ITC hearing aids offer a secure fit, easy insertion and removal, and longer battery life. They work best for mild-to-moderate hearing loss.

Also popular is the Mini ITC style hearing aid. This option is less noticeable than the standard ITC hearing aid, but offers fewer easy-to-reach controls.
