Behind The Ear
- A bit larger than in-the-ear styles but some are extremely small and the thin tube is almost invisible.
- Can fit a larger battery for longer life, and larger amplifiers for more severe hearing losses.
- Can often be fitted the same day as your hearing assessment.
- Some do not occlude (or fill up) the ear canal so sounds are more natural, particularly your own voice.
- Can be a good choice if you have dexterity concerns.
