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.

Mic-in-Helix (MIH) Style

Designed to “disappear”, the main part of an MIC hearing aid hides in your ear canal. This piece is custom-manufactured based on an ear canal impression taken during your visit, so it's very comfortable. The hearing aid microphone is a separate component, and is worn within the concha, or curved groove, of your external ear—where it stays out of sight. A tiny transparent tube sends sound from the microphone in your concha to the component in your ear canal.

The ingenious construction of the MIC style hearing aid takes advantage of the ear's anatomy to provide near-to-natural sound quality, and outstanding appearance. By placing the microphone in the curved portion of your ear, it's protected from wind noise. This makes the MIH style perfect for active individuals who spend time outdoors.
