There are a number of different fitting types but they can be broadly placed into two categories:

  • In The Ear (ITE)
    These require a mould being taken just inside the entrance to the ear. This impression is then recreated as a hearing aid shell containing the technology. They fit almost unseen inside the ear.
  • Behind The Ear (BTE)
    The shell containing the technology fits over the ear and just behind, with a wire routed into the ear canal. A receiver, or speaker, sitting near to the eardrum, delivers the sound. Impressions may also be required for these aids to ensure the best hearing results.
We offer a wide choice of all fitting types at bloom so to find out more please contact us online or call us on 0800 612 7978.
