Invisible in the canal (IIC) / completely in the canal (CIC) aids

IIC and CIC aids are the smallest aids that can possibly be manufactured, offering the ultimate discreet hearing solution. They fit a limited range of hearing losses, and can be difficult to use for people with dexterity problems.

In the canal (ITC) aids

These aids are slightly larger, which means they may be more visible. They can fit a larger range of hearing losses, and can be more appropriate for people with handling issues. Styles include ITC, half-shell, and full-shell options.

Receiver in the ear (RITE/RIC) aids

The most modern style of hearing aid, a small unit sits at the top of the ear, and the receiver section sits in the ear canal, with a fine wire connecting both parts. This aid can be fitted to most hearing losses, and provides a highly discreet and comfortable hearing solution.

Behind the ear (BTE) aids

Still used for the most severe of hearing losses. A larger hearing unit sits behind the ear, and a solid mould allows sound to travel into the ear canal. This style of hearing aid is typically associated with the NHS range of hearing aids.

Wireless hearing accessories

Most modern hearing systems allow wireless integration with mobile phones and specialist accessories to assist with external appliances, for example TV’s and land-line telephones. This equipment is usually manufacturer specific – equipment will only usually work with specific hearing systems, but can often work with NHS systems.

I attended a few hearing aid suppliers to upgrade my existing hearing aid to compare services. Most companies tried to tell me what I should have. Only open hearing solutions actually listened to what I wanted.
I booked a wax removal appointment online and was seen within two days. The options were clearly explained to me, and the procedure took less than ten minutes. Can now hear clearly, with no discomfort.
Stephanie let me try different styles of hearing aids until I found the one that suited me best. I've never felt better about wearing my hearing aids!
Compared with previous experiences through the NHS, this is well worth the money.
I am housebound and registered blind, so rely on my hearing aids. Open Hearing Solutions always make the effort to come to me, and make sure my hearing aids are always working properly.
