Hearing aids type

Receiver-in-canal (RIC)

Small and unnoticeable

The RIC hearing aid type differs from the behind-the-ear style by its way of transmitting sound. There are three distinct parts: the case, the wire-earpiece and the earpiece. The earpiece is placed directly in the ear canal, and the microphone and amplifier are in a small box located behind the ear. The earphone wire is used to connect the earphone and the case.

Discreet and barely visible

The case of a RIC hearing aid is thinner and smaller than the classic earloop. It slips completely behind the ear for an almost invisible result. The customization of the case colors makes it even more discreet, by matching it with skin color or hair.

Easy to handle

RIC hearing aids are easily put in place, only one hand is needed! The casing allows easy access to the battery and settings buttons. Despite their lightness, they hold perfectly in place.
