Custom In-the-Ear hearing aids
The custom-in-the-ear hearing aids come in two variants:
- Standard In-the-Ear hearing aids
- Remote microphone hearing aids
Custom in-the-ear models are custom made to fit the contours of your ear canal. They’re easy to insert for all levels of dexterity and avoid conflict when wearing glasses, hats, etc.
ReSound offers five different types of custom hearing aids:
- Full shell
- Half shell
- Mini canal
- Completely in the canal (CIC)
Depending on the specific type, it may be more or less invisible in your ear. The size and shape of your ear canal along with your specific hearing loss determine which type of custom hearing aid is right for you.
Remote microphone (RM)
Remote microphone is a new category developed by ReSound that combines the advantages of the Behind-the-Ear and custom (In-the-Ear) models. The microphone has been moved to the outer ear and is connected to the main body of the hearing aid by a thin transparent tube. The result is a virtually invisible hearing instrument that offers Open-fitting comfort and maximum wind noise suppression.
