ITE (In the Ear) Hearing Aids
These hearing aids can be used for a wider range of hearing losses. Due to their larger size, ITEs can accommodate larger sound amplifiers and more features such as a telephone switch. They are also easier to handle. The ITE is most appropriate for mild-moderate hearing losses. While this is one of the smallest hearing aid styles available, it may not be appropriate for certain degrees and configurations of hearing loss. This style of hearing aid is not appropriate for infants or young children. ITE Hearing Aids fit within the concha part of the ear (the outer bowl), and are sometimes visible to others when standing face to face. ITE Hearing Aids are custom fit to each individual's ear, via a custom ear mold. Some modern circuits are able to provide feedback regulation/cancellation to assist with feedback which is a squealing/whistling caused by sound leaking out of the aid, then being amplified again. Since children's ears are rather small, and grow with the child ITE Hearing Aids are not recommended for young children. As children reach their teens they maybe able to wear ITE hearing aids, if the ITE hearing aid matches the child's specific hearing loss.
