Forty-five to 50 years ago, eyeglass- and body-style hearing instruments were the most popular types of hearing instruments worn by individuals with hearing loss. Since that time, there have been a number of technical advancements that have led to shifts in preferred styles of hearing instruments. Today, eyeglass- and body-style hearing instruments account for only one percent of all hearing instruments. Most individuals now choose in-the-ear ITE (approximately 80%) or behind-the-ear BTE (approximately 20%) hearing instruments. Thanks to the miniaturization of component parts (such as the microphone, receiver, and battery), ITE-style hearing instruments are small enough to fit completely within the ear canal. These custom-fitted instruments combine comfort with easy access.

P.S. In-the-ear ITE hearing instruments are small enough to fit inside the ear, but are large enough to be easily adjusted by wearers.
