Receiver In The Canal (RIC)
Receiver in canal (RIC) hearing aids are similar to BTE’s in shape and style, but are smaller because the receiver (or the loudspeaker) is placed in the ear-tip instead of the housing. These hearing aids are most suitable if you have mild to severe hearing loss. With RIC hearing aids, sound is sent directly from the housing behind your ear through a thin wire to the receiver which is in your ear canal. Not only do they provide outstanding sound, they are discreet and are fully automatic.
