SIZEABLE ADVANTAGESNovember 05, 2018
While miniature “in-the-canal” (ITC) and “completely-in-canal” (CIC) hearing instruments offer the cosmetic advantage of being virtually invisible, they may not be as powerful or full-featured as larger models. Handling these small devices and changing their batteries may also pose challenges for those with limited dexterity. However, “in-the-ear” (ITE) instruments, which are custom-made to fit in the lower portion of the outer ear, are comfortable to wear, easy to use, and do not draw undue attention to themselves due to their skin-matching cases. These tailor-fit instruments are especially adept at picking up high-frequency sounds, and all their components can be integrated into one case, which eliminates the need for wires and tubes. ITE instruments offer plenty of power and features.
