Vancouver’s Answer to Hearing Aids
With many kinds of hearing instruments, Audiology Clinic offers a wide selection of sizes and styles. Let our professionals show you actual models of aids and features. Hear for yourself the amazing sound quality these instruments provide.
Invisible In The Canal (IIC)
The invisibility you want with the technically advancement you need. Depending on the individual hearing loss and ear canal size, the Invisible-In-The-Canal products are custom built to your ear’s shape and are nearly invisible. We add a thin retrieval line to make removing the device a breeze. Plus, because the device is hidden in the ear canal, wind noise is virtually eliminated and makes outdoor living a breeze.
Behind The Ear (BTE)
The Behind-The-Ear style is a product that sits behind the ear. The device is coupled to the ear canal with a thin clear plastic tube which carries the sound from the hearing device to the ear canal. The tubing is held in place in the ear canal by a custom earmold fitted for each individual. Miniature electronics have allowed the sizes of these devices to become much smaller than the old-fashioned hearing aids.
Receiver In The Ear (RITE)
Today’s style of choice is the Receiver-in-the-Ear (RITE). A receiver is the equivalent of a tiny speaker. By placing the speaker in the ear and keeping the electronics hidden behind the ear, the wearer enjoys a crisp, clean sound. The device and the receiver are connected by a thin, clear wire that discreetly moves sound between the receiver and in-ear speaker. It is the most popular choice for active lifestyles.
In The Canal (ITC)
Depending on the individual hearing loss and ear canal size, these products can be built where they are barely visible. They are so tiny, they have a thin plastic retrieval line to aid the wearer in removing the device. Hidden so deep in the ear canal, wind noise is virtually eliminated.
Completely In The Canal (CIC)
These devices fit completely in the canal, with only the head of a tiny plastic line, which you use to insert or remove the instrument, showing above the canal. Because of their tiny size, these aids are especially appealing for people who desire a discreet solution for hearing problems.
In The Ear (ITE)
The In-the-Ear hearing device fits inside the curvature of your ear canal. A convenient volume control allows you to adjust for different listening environments. The size is a bit larger, and it can accommodate nearly any type of hearing loss, even some severe losses.
