CALL US AT 905-635-HEAR (4327)

Behind-the-ear (BTE)

Fits behind the ear, connected via a clear, thin tube to an ear mold that’s made to perfectly fit your ear. The most powerful hearing aids instruments available.

For all degrees of hearing loss.


Open-Fit (BTE)

Sound travels into the ear via a very thin, almost ‘invisible’ tube. Minimizes the plugged up feeling some hearing aid wearers experience with other styles.

For mild to moderate hearing loss.


Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

Looks similar to the Open-fit BTE. Sound travels through a thin wire to a receiver inside the ear canal.

For mild, moderate and some severe hearing loss.


In-the-ear (ITE)

Completely contained in a custom molded casing that fits within the entire ear. They are easy to handle and have easy-to-access controls.

For mild to severe hearing loss.


In-the-canal (ITC)

Smaller and more aesthetically appealing than (ITE) aids, while still providing the option of a volume control. Molded to fit the bottom half of the external ear.

For mild to moderately-severe hearing loss.



The (CIC) is molded to comfortably fit deeply into your ear canal. They are almost invisible to the eye.

For mild to moderate hearing loss.


Micro CIC

Smaller than the CIC, the Micro CIC fits deep in the ear canal making it invisible to the eye.

For mild to moderate hearing loss.


Bluetooth Technology

Hearing aid technology is continually expanding. Some hearing aids can connect to your cell phone, TV and even more.
