Receiver-In-The-Ear Styles (RITE, RIC)

Receiver-In-The-Ear (RITE) – sometimes also called Receiver-In-The-Canal (RIC) – hearing instruments include a case that sits behind your ear.

But unlike traditional Behind-The-Ear (BTE) devices, the receiver (or “loudspeaker”) piece goes inside your ear. This allows these devices to be smaller than BTEs.

Receiver-in-the-Canal Features:

  • Available in mini or micro sizes
  • All components except receiver contained in a case worn behind the ear
  • Sound directed into the ear canal through receiver unit
  • Can be fit with standard domes or custom earmolds
  • Virtually unnoticeable when worn
  • For mild to severe hearing losses
  • Variety of color options available
