Receiver In The Ear (RITE) Hearing Aids

The latest development

Provides better quality sound. Comfortable, discreet and reliable.

Receiver in the ear hearing aids are the latest type of hearing aid to be developed. Their two-piece design allows them to be worn comfortably behind or on top of the ear whilst a very thin and discreet wire is connected to a tiny receiver (loudspeaker) in the ear canal. Many manufacturers have also changed the way that these instruments look, with unique shapes and colours.

Placing the receiver or loudspeaker in the ear provides several advantages:

  • The receiver is held in place by a small, soft silicon dome. These domes are very comfortable and have holes in them, leaving the ear canal wide open, which adds to sound quality and comfort.
  • This ‘open fitting’ (described above) can help with using the telephone and allow you to use what is left of your natural hearing to listen for additional sounds.
  • The sound generated by the receiver is closer to the eardrum than in a BTE or ITE – this means that less volume is required for your hearing loss, giving greater clarity and increasing battery life.

Following a hearing consultation, your Interhearing Audiologist will confirm whether one of our “RITE” hearing aids is suitable for you to use. Advances in receiver technology have meant that even those with severe hearing losses can benefit from these incredible micro-devices. The severity of your hearing loss will determine whether the aid can be prescribed with an open dome or whether a custom-made tip should be used.

Clients supplied with “RITE” products are looking for the latest designs with the most up-to-date and user-friendly technology.
