Behind The Ear Hearing Aids (BTE Hearing Aids)
Behind the ear hearing aids (BTE) have a plastic casing that rests behind the ear and houses the hearing aids technology. A clear plastic tube then directs amplified sound into an ear-mold inside the ear canal. BTEs are often the most durable hearing aids—a few are even waterproof. Compared to smaller, in the ear hearing aids, they hold more circuitry and offer greater amplification.
BTE hearing aids these days are generally only needed when you have a sever to profound hearing loss. We can get more amplification in the BTE hearing aid than the other styles. These hearing aids usually take orange #13 hearing aid batteries, or brown #312 hearing aid batteries. BTE hearing aids are:
- Available in a variety of color options
- For moderate to severe hearing loss
- Easy to use with no hard-to-use buttons or dials
Hearing tip: Ask your pharmacist or doctor whether the medicine you are taking may cause hearing loss (ototoxic medicine). If you develop a new hearing problem while taking medicine, tell your doctor.
