BTE: Behind-the-ear


BTE hearing aids are typically the most flexible devices and fit nearly all types of hearing loss. Earmolds can be made in all sorts of shapes and materials to fit your particular ear anatomy. This is the type of hearing aid that the younger population wears; new earmolds will be made periodically to fit on the hearing aid to compensate for a growing ear. BTE hearing aids can be made with directional microphones and may include a volume control and program button.
