In The Ear Hearing Aids (ITE)

In the ear hearing aidIn The Ear hearing aids consist of a tiny earpiece of various different shapes that fits inside the ear; it has no tube to connect the microphone to the hearing aid.

They have the advantage that they are less invasive in the sense that they cannot be seen, but the disadvantage with them is that they tend to need more care and maintenance. People who are physically active find them more useful than the behind the ear models. They are easier to place in the ear and easier to remove than the BTE type, and they can be more easily controlled. They can cover all types of hearing loss except profound hearing loss, and the smaller models are not the best option for those that have dexterity issues.

Some patients report that they can hear the wind more than with the BTE type of hearing aid, whilst others say that if you persevere to fit them correctly there is no difference.
