Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids fit comfortably behind your ear and are discreetly connected to a mold inside your ear canal. They are less inconspicuous than other hearing aid styles but they come in a variety of colours and feature external controls for ease and convenience.
BTE hearing aids are also easy to handle and clean because of their larger size. .
You can also get mini BTE hearing aids that are the same as regular BTE hearing aids but smaller. They are more discreet than their larger counterpart and can further reduce the feeling of your ear being plugged up.
BTE hearing aids are best for individuals with moderate to severe hearing loss.
