Restore Your Favorite Sounds with Receiver in Canal Hearing Aids

Receiver In Canal hearing aids (RIC) are the most popular style available today, due to their sleek, comfortable design and ability to help a wide range of hearing loss levels. RIC hearing aids have great flexibility in the way they can be programmed, so they are a good option for first time hearing aid users and lifelong users alike. Receiver In Canal hearing aids consist of 2 main parts connected by a thin piece of tubing. The sound processor houses the battery and sit discreetly behind your ear. The receiver gets tucked gently into your ear canal, so that sounds reach your eardrum quickly.

Benefits of RIC Hearing Devices

  1. Clear, high-quality amplification, especially in the high-frequencies.
  2. Small, lightweight device that is both comfortable and inconspicuous.
  3. Easy to insert, change between settings and replace the batteries.
  4. Ability to upgrade to a stronger receiver as hearing loss progresses.

Some people prefer RIC hearing aids because they lessen the occlusion effect you may experience with other hearing aid styles that block the entire ear canal. Because the ear canal is not blocked Receiver In Canal wearers report feeling like they get a more natural listening experience.

RIC hearing aids do not require a custom mold of your ear. Many times, if the office you visit has the correct technology level in stock you can walk out of the office with your new RIC hearing aid the same day. Call today to schedule your free hearing exam and try any Receiver In Canal instrument for 30-days risk-free.
