  • 1. Behind the Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids BTE hearing aids may be the most well known of all types thanks to their high profile. As its name suggests (behind the ear), these devices sit on the bowl of your ear and feed a tube into the canal. Their size allows manufacturers to include features such as volume controls and on/off switches.Modern units are not the clunkers that their predecessors wereand come in increasingly streamline and attractive options. Unlikesmaller units that fit inside the ear canal, they allow naturalpassage of air so wearers dont feel "clogged" or "cut off" fromthe outside world.The BTE unit has three discrete parts, the case, tube andearmold. The case is the hook-like part that sits behind the earand does the actual augmentation of sound. Its placement makesit more prone to wind noise whenever fast wind passes the mic.Audio waves travel from the case through the tube to theearmold, which is essentially a plug made to sit neatly at theopening of your canal. Similar tips are used to keep your mobilephone headset in place.OTE, or open fit aids are smaller behind the ear devices that worka little different. The tube in these units are made to be as smallas possible while still carrying adequate sound. It travels deeperinto the canal and uses a soft molded dome to hold it in place.
  • 2. The advantage of this type of technology is that it preventsocclusion, that booming sound you hear in your own voice whenyour hands are pressed against your ears. OTE aids do havedrawbacks however. The two major concerns are the leakage ofsound from the ear canal and the inherint problems their designcauses with Assistive Listening Devices.BTE aids are ideal for those with moderate to severe hearing loss.
