Technology has led to a remarkable new generation of hearing aids. These new hearing aids amplify sounds in a clear, crisp way that’s natural and pleasing. Plus, the size of hearing aids has been vastly reduced. Your hearing care professional can recommend the hearing aid that’s best for you.
Although there are many hearing aids to choose from, they come in four basic styles.
Completely in the canal
Technology advancements have made these hearing aids the most compact. No larger than a dime, these hearing aids fit completely in the ear canal, making them practically invisible.

These hearing aids are about the size of a dime and fit in the ear canal so they are hardly noticeable.
In the ear
These popular hearing aids are about the size of a quarter. They fit in the outer ear and the ear canal.
Behind the ear
With these hearing aids, a small curved case fits around the back of the ear and is connected to a mold in the ear.
