Q&A: Are behind the ear hearing aids more comfortable than in the ears?

Question by miki: Are behind the ear hearing aids more comfortable than in the ears?
I have been using in the ear hearing aids since high school and while they work to amplify as well as would be expected, i tend not to wear them all day due to how uncomfortable they are. I am getting new aids this year and would love anyones opinion as to the comfort of behind the ears. Are they any better?

    I’ve worn hearing aids for more than 10 years now. For the longest time I wore in the ear hearing aids and during that time I always thought they could fit a little better. Several months ago, I changed to the Audeo hearing aids (they are expensive, I won’t lie) that lie behind the ear. It was a huge change for me at first, b/c you have a little wire that goes into your ear (for the speaker of course), but you get used to it over time. I think behind the ear hearing aids can actually help you hear better since you have more open space in your ear. The in the ear aids kind of jam the sound a little more. I would definitely look into behind the ear hearing aids.
