RIC: Receiver-in-the-Canal Hearing Aid

The most popular style of hearing aid is the RIC, or the RIE, the receiver-in-the-canal or receiver-in-the-ear hearing aid. Check out our latest video for more details.

With it’s superior sound quality and comfortable fit, the RIC hearing aid is by far the most popular style. In fact, most folks looking for an invisible hearing aid choose the RIC for it’s super discreet and almost undetectable appearance. Sure, it’s a behind-the-ear style, but the receiver and the speaker are actually in the ear canal and not the ear piece. Placing this so close to the ear drum means unbelievable sound quality and clarity. The RIC is a great option for those with mild to severe hearing loss, and fits into the ear with a small dome in most cases. The dome comes in many different sizes and configurations to match the size of your ear canal and the severity of your loss.
