In-the-ear hearing aids (ITE)
In-the-ear hearing aids are easy to handle, are placed in the ear canal, and are available in various sizes. The basic sizes are shown below and are:
- Full Shell: This fits in the entire concha (bowl like part of your outer ear) and is clearly visible.
- Half Shell: This fits in half the the concha of your ear and is only visible if people try to look at your ear.
- In-the-Canal: This is practically not visible by others and is removed with a transparent, removal string.
- Completely In-the-Canal: This is the smallest of the ITE types and is not visible by others.
Lansdowne Hearing would first make an impression of your ear and custom make the hearing aids so they are custom fitted into your ear to fit like a glove. These hearing aids are available in different skin colors so they blend in with your ear. The face plate of these aids has a battery access door and sometimes a volume control knob or program control button.
