In-The-Ear (ITE)

In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids fit completely inside the outer ear and are used for mild to severe hearing loss. The case holding the electronic components is made of hard plastic. Some ITE aids may have certain added features installed, such as a telecoil. A telecoil is a small magnetic coil that allows users to receive sound through the circuitry of the hearing aid, rather than through its microphone. This makes it easier to hear conversations over the telephone. A telecoil also helps people hear in public facilities that have installed special sound systems, called induction loop systems. Induction loop systems can be found in many churches, schools, airports, and auditoriums. ITE aids usually are not worn by young children because the casings need to be replaced often as the ear grows. ITE is the biggest sized hearing aids within custom. However, it covers up to severe hearing loss. Starkey is the only company worldwide which manufacture rechargeable hearing aids in ITE form factor. However, the custom hearing aids (ITE, ITC, CIC and invisible are not water resistant and one has to take proper care of their hearing aids as majority of the repairing services in the custom hearing aids are sweat/moisture borne. So a user should user proper dry kit (devices which absorbs humidity and moisture from hearing aids). Dry kits and electric dehumidifier are available with all the companies and they come at a very nominal price. We at Nityant Hearing Care, Ahmedabad give our patient dry kit without charging any price. The electric dehumidifier can be bought at the best price available in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
