IIC
X Close

IIC (invisible-in-canal) devices are some of the smallest hearing devices available.  They fit deep inside the ear canal and allow the external ear (pinna) to capture sound in a natural manner.  One limitation of these devices is that they generally won't fit inside very small or narrow ear canals.  Although IIC devices are incredibly small, some of the more recent models are now even equipped with wireless connectivity.

ITC
X Close

ITC (in-the-canal) devices are larger than a CIC.  They have a portion protruding from the ear canal into the bowl (concha) of the ear.  They will generally be more likely to fit inside an ear canal that is too small for an IIC or CIC device.  Given their larger size, it is also often possible for an ITC to contain a greater range of features, such as directional microphones and more user contols.  They also have the potential to house larger and more powerful speakers when required, for more significant hearing losses.

CIC

CIC (completely-in-canal) devices are similar but slightly larger than an IIC.  They are almost invisible, being contained only within the ear canal.  Like an IIC, they won't suit some very small or narrow ear canals.  Although CIC devices are very small, many of the more recent models are now equipped with wireless connectivity and push button controls.

ITE

ITE (in-the-ear) devices are larger than an ITC.  They fill up most or all of the bowl (concha & helix) region of the ear.  Given their larger size, ITEs are generally able to contain the full range of features and contols, and also have the ability to house larger and more powerful speakers.  Many also contain larger batteries which will need to be replaced less often and can be easier to handle for those with reduced manual dexterity.

BTE
X Close

BTE (behind-the-ear) devices have all the electronic componentry housed behind the ear, with an air-filled tube running down into the ear canal, often via a custom mould.  There are many variations in the shape and size of these devices, but the basic principle remains the same.  They tend to be one of the more robust and flexible styles of hearing device, and generally have larger user controls which some find easier to manage.

RIC
X Close

RIC (receiver-in-canal) devices are essentially a BTE style, except they have the speaker (or receiver) situated in the ear canal.  The speaker may be held in place via either a custom mould, or a soft silicone dome, depending on a number of factors.  A primary advantage of this style is that the behind-the-ear component can be made significantly smaller without limiting the size and power output of the speaker.

Bonebridge

Bonebridge
X Close

The Bonebridge is the world's first active bone conduction implant system, with typical applications being for individuals with conductive or mixed hearing loss, as well as some cases of single-sided deafness.  With the Bonebridge, sound waves are transmitted via bone conduction directly to the inner ear, where they are processed as natural sound, bypassing any obstruction in the middle ear.  A Bonebridge system consists of two parts: an externally worn audio processor, which sits off the ear, and an internal bone conduction implant, which is fully contained under the skin.

Vibrant Soundbridge
X Close

The Vibrant Soundbridge is a unique middle ear implant system which has opened a world of new hearing possibilities for individuals who have not experienced an improvement with conventional hearing aids or cannot use them for medical reasons. This is often the case with permanent hearing loss after middle ear surgery or when hearing aids cannot be worn due to chronic ear canal inflammation (i.e. otitis externa). The Vibrant Soundbridge can be an effective solution for cases of mild to severe sensorineural hearing loss, as well as for conductive or mixed hearing loss.  The system consists of two parts: an externally worn audio processor, which sits off the ear, and an internal middle ear implant, which is fully contained under the skin.

BAHA
X Close

The BAHA, which stands for Bone Anchored Hearing Aid, has been around in one form or another for more than 35 years.  This minimally-invasive system uses the body’s natural ability to conduct sound through bone conduction, with typical applications being for those with conductive hearing loss or single-sided deafness.  The BAHA system consists of an external bone conduction processor, which clips on to an abutment anchored into the skull behind the ear.

Cochlear Implant
X Close

A cochlear implant (CI) system helps to partially restore the sense of hearing for individuals typically with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss where conventional hearing aids no longer provide sufficient benefit.  It works by bypassing non-functioning parts of the inner ear and providing electrical stimulation directly to nerve fibres in the cochlea.  A CI system consists of two parts: an externally worn audio processor, which sits comfortably behind or off the ear, and an internal cochlear implant, which is fully contained under the skin.
