The behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid is placed behind the auricle and is connected to an earmold. Easy to manipulate, this hearing aid is powerful and resistant. It increases sound quality and the comprehension of environmental sounds, such as speech. In addition to being high-performance, it has several customized programs. Ideal for all types of deafness, ranging from the mildest to the most severe, the BTE device is perfectly suitable for children and people who secrete a lot of earwax. It offers great battery life, since it can work for up to three consecutive weeks without needing to replace the batteries.
Unlike in-the-ear hearing aids, which are placed at the entrance to the ear canal, the mini BTE device is placed discreetly behind the auricle and connected to an open earmold. This new hearing aid technology is lighter and smaller than traditional hearing aids. It is suitable for all degrees of hearing loss while offering customized programs. Recognized for its discretion, it is appreciated for its comfort and efficiency. It is especially popular with hearing-impaired people who wear their hair short. Handy and ergonomic, the mini BTE device with open earmold causes no discomfort for people who wear glasses.
