Griffith Hearing


Some of the newest devices on the market are so small, no one will ever know you’re wearing a hearing aid. Invisible hearing aids are mostly suitable for mild-to-moderate hearing loss.

Behind-the-ear (BTE)

BTE devices are discreet and versatile. They work for many people. Within the BTE category  there are three main types of device:

  • Receiver-in-canal. Very small hearing aids because the speaker (receiver) is placed inside the ear canal. This type of BTE hearing aid provides sound quality that is considered very natural.
  • Tube-with-dome. Can be good for people with ears that wax up a lot. The speaker (receiver) sits behind the ear and a tube with a dome at the end transmits the sound to the ear canal.
  • Moulded. Robust devices that have the receiver, microphone and amplifier all housed in a shell that sits behind the ear. Sound is channelled into the ear though a transparent tube and custom-made ear mould.

In-the-ear (ITE)

ITE devices are moulded to perfectly fit your ears. Within the ITE category, there are these choices:

  • In-the-ear. Fits comfortably inside the visible portion of the ear. It’s easy to manage and has user-friendly controls.
  • In-the-canal. Only partially visible in the outer ear.
  • Completely-in-canal. Fits all the way into the ear canal to be almost invisible.
