    Completely in the canal, in the ear, behibnd the ear (open fit or with an ear mould), body worn and spectacle hearing aids.

  2. C says:

    Body and Spectacle hearing aids no longer exist. There used to be analog hearing aids… Almost all hearing aids are “digital prescription” in 2011…that means we no longer program them with screw drivers, we program them with computers. “Prescription” means they are programmed pitch by pitch to give you more power in certain pitches based on your hearing loss.

    The most popular style in 2011 is “reciever-in-the ear” with different powered speakers (such as standard, medium or power). Other styles include BTE with earmold, BTE with open ear, In-the ear, Half Shell, Canal aid or ITC, then completely-in the canal or CIC. Most run on zinc air batteries but a few are rechargeable. There is one other type called the “lyric” that the audiologist places deep into the canal that the person doesn’t take out for a couple months (you can shower with it on). It has a rechargeable battery and can be removed by a magnet by the patient. Only certain ears and certain hearing losses can wear it and it is “analog” not digital.

    Each of these “styles” is made by a number of different manufacturers… Phonak, Oticon, Starkey, Unitron, Resound, Widex, Siemens, etc. Each has high level, mid level and entry level devices for each style.
