Behind The Ear (BTE) hearing aids

Today's BTE hearing aids are small, discreet, available in a range of colours and packed with technology.

BTE hearing aids sit comfortably behind the ear, held in place by the ear hook, and contain all the main components including volume and program controls. 

The sound is transmitted through a discreet clear tube that connects to a dome or earmold which sits in the ear canal.

Ideal for those with dexterity challenges because their size makes them easy to handle and fit/remove

Rechargeable battery icon

BTE hearing aids can have larger batteries which last longer before having to be changed

Better hearing icon

Because they don't sit in the ear, there is no blocked up sensation that some people can experience

As only the dome or earmould is in contact with the ear canal, they are less susceptible to wax or moisture

Are BTE hearing aids right for you?

BTE hearing aids are suitable for all levels of hearing loss, making them a great choice for almost anyone.

They are available in a wide range of colours so blend in very well with skin tones and hair colours.

Mini BTEs are ideal if you are looking for something smaller but don't want to compromise on features, whereas Power BTEs are larger but can help those with a severe or profound hearing loss. 

Your hearing specialist will be able to advise on the best options for you.
