Advantages of Custom Hearing Aids

In-the-Ear (ITE): The larger of the custom styles which allows this style to have the most features of the custom style devices. Due to the larger size of the device it allows for a larger battery size which increases the power output and battery life for this style of device. Added features such as Tele-Coil, Program Buttons, Volume Wheels can also be added and the latest models also now come in a rechargeable option. 

In-the-Canal (ITC): The ITC hearing aid is a smaller version of the ITE and boasts many of the same abilities. Given the reduction in size controls such as the volume wheel or program button are typically not available as the reduced size removes the ability to add these features. For individuals looking for a more discreet option with similar output to the ITE then this may be the option for you.
