What are behind-the-ear hearing aids?
Behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids are designed so that the main body of the aid sits behind your ear. A clear, discreet tube is then connected to an ear mould or dome and placed inside the ear canal.
BTE hearing aids are the most widely used aid on the market today. They are getting smaller as technology advances (which is also true for in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids), as well as more adaptable, and much more powerful.
