Behind-the-ear hearing aids

At Amplifon, we offer a wide range of the latest, high performance hearing aids from the world's leading international manufacturers.
The most important issues in determining which hearing aid is right for you are the results of your hearing test, your lifestyle, the style of hearing aid that you prefer and your level of dexterity. Based on these four key factors, your hearing aid audiologist will recommend the hearing aids that are most appropriate for you to ensure that they will satisfy your individual needs and that you will feel comfortable and confident wearing them every day.
There are three main types of hearing aid each with their own fitting styles. Your hearing aid audiologist will help you choose the type that is right for you.
Our behind-the-ear hearing aid range include a variety of fits:
Mini Behind-the-ear
This behind the ear hearing aid is very unobtrusive as it leaves the ear open. Sound travels into the ear via a very thin, almost 'invisible' tube. Behind-the-ear aids are available in a variety of colours to blend easily with your hair colour or skin tone.
For mild to moderate hearing loss.
Receiver-in-canal BTE (RIC)
This hearing aid looks similar to the Mini BTE aid. Instead of travelling through a plastic tube into the ear, sound travels through a thin wire to a receiver inside the ear canal.
For mild, moderate and some severe hearing loss.
Behind-the-ear (BTE)
Regular BTE
Housed in a small curved case that fits discreetly behind the ear, these hearing aids are connected via a clear, thin tube to an ear mould that's made to your ear shape for a perfect fit.
For all degrees of hearing loss .
Power BTE
These hearing aids are similar to the regular BTE hearing aids but are larger in size for users with a greater hearing loss. Although they are visible within the ear, they are easy to handle and have easy-to-access controls for users with dexterity difficulties.
For moderate to severe hearing loss.
Super Power BTE
These hearing aids are larger than the power BTE hearing aids for users with a greater hearing loss and/or dexterity difficulties.
For moderate to severe hearing loss.
