Like the standard BTE the main section of this hearing aid is hidden behind your ear. Unlike a standard BTE – where the receiver is included in the hearing aid case – the receiver has been removed from the BTE housing and mounted externally in a tube fitted into the ear with a soft dome. You will therefore find that RIE hearing aids are usually smaller than standard BTE hearing aids.
Your hearing healthcare professional can help you determine if a RIE hearing aid would suit you and your hearing loss.
Suitable for: mild to moderately severe hearing loss
