When it comes to hearing aids, one size does not fit all.
We are all unique and have different needs and goals. By offering you a variety of different styles, sizes, and manufacturers, we can meet your hearing needs and fit your style.
What Hearing Aids Do
Originally, hearing aids could only amplify all of the sound around them, that was the best that technology could do at the time.
So, if you were in a noisy place, your hearing aids just made the noise louder, and they didn’t improve your hearing – you still couldn’t understand what was being said. That’s why so many people threw them into a drawer and forgot about them.
Today’s hearing aids use highly sophisticated technology that filters background noise and amplifies the sounds you want to hear. So, even in a noisy location, you can hear and understand a conversation.
By understanding the exact nature of your hearing loss, we can fit you with the design and technology that will give you the hearing improvement possible.

Receiver in the Ear
Small and Effective
Receiver in the Ear (RITE) sometimes called Receiver-in-the-Canal (RIC) hearing aid instruments include a case that sits behind your ear.
But unlike traditional Behind-the-Ear (BTE) devices, the receiver (or "loudspeaker") piece goes inside your ear. This allows these devices to be smaller than BTEs.
- Available in mini or micro sizes
- All components except receiver contained in a case worn behind the ear
- Sound directed into the ear canal through receiver unit
- Can be fit with standard domes or custom earmolds
- Virtually unnoticeable when worn
- For mild to severe hearing losses
- Variety of color options available
Custom Hearing Aids
Custom Hearing Aids (canal-style devices) are among the smallest hearing instruments. They hide within your ear canal, so they're custom made to fit you exactly.
There are three types of canal-style devices:
- Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC) device fits the deepest within the canal; a tiny extension cord is used to insert and remove the instrument.
- In-the-Canal (ITC) devices are slightly larger, so they extend farther out but remain very hidden.
- In-The-Ear (ITE) you will see some of the device's face, depending on the size and shape of your ear.
Canal Model Features:
- Custom fit
- CIC models are nearly invisible
- CIC and ITC models are suitable for mild to moderate hearing losses
- ITE models are suitable for moderate to severe hearing losses
- Skin tone colors available
