Behind-The-Ear Hearing Aids

Behind the Ear hearing aids or BTE hearing aids is the world’s most common hearing aid style. Easy to use and easy to wear, a BTE hearing aid may be right for you.

A behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid hooks over the top of your ear and rests behind the ear. A tube connects the hearing aid to a custom earpiece called an earmold that fits in your ear canal. This type is appropriate for people of all ages and those with almost any type of hearing loss.

A behind-the-ear hearing aid:

  • Traditionally has been the largest type of hearing aid, though some newer mini designs are streamlined and barely visible
  • Is capable of more amplification than are other styles
  • May pick up more wind noise than other styles
