RIC

Receiver in Canal or RIC is the most common device fitted in the UK today. it also goes by other names - Receiver in (the) Ear, RIE/RITE, but whatever the name the technology is similar and differs from the NHS aids in that the speaker (receiver) is placed in the ear canal so it can deliver the sound directly to the eardrum as nature intended.


This retains the valuable information lost as the sound travels down the tubing, especially thin tubing, of a BTE aid. 


Although most are the same size as each other All Ears Hearing can also supply a mini RIC which gives a great balance of practicality and a discreet fit.

Behind the Ear devices might look similar to the RIC shown above but use a tube a to deliver the sound to the ear canal.


Typically we use a BTE where we require additional power and locate the tubing in the ear using a custom made earmould. 


Since RICs are so versatile, we would not normally consider a smaller BTE (NHS style) device unless there is a specific underlying problem that necessitates such a fit, so these aids are far less common than they used to be.


Recharegable, standard and power BTEs available.

BTE

Custom made to fit the indivual ear, In the Ear hearing aids are still a popular option for some users.

The key advantage is that there are no electronics on top of the ear and so no interference with glasses, hats or face masks.


The compact form of the ITE makes fitting easier for some users, especially where dexterity is a problem.

They come in various sizes according to ear shape and hearing loss requirements.


All Ears Hearing has every make and model available including the world's only rechargeable custom made hearing aids - the Starkey Livio.
