Behind The Ear Hearing Aids
Behind-The-Ear hearing aids (BTE) are appropriate for hearing loss from mild to profound. Directional microphones, multiple listening programs, telecoil, and Bluetooth® compatibility are available features. This traditional hearing aid style is a good choice for pediatric patients and individuals with excessive moisture and accumulative cerumen (earwax).
Standard BTE’s are the modern versions of classic hearing aids but smaller and more up-to-date. They are equipped with automatic sound processing and also have controls on the instrument to let you change your own sound settings for different situations. BTE’s with ear hooks are connected to the ear canal via plastic tubing. Most BTEs with ear hooks can be fitted with a very cosmetically appealing thin tube solution.
