What are in the ear hearing aids?
In the ear hearing (ITE) aids are small devices that sit within the outer ear and amplify sound. They consist of a customised moulded casing that fits safely inside the ear, and although visible, in the ear hearing aids are very discreet.
They boast all the latest advances in hearing technology as a very small device to provide you with optimal hearing, comfort and convenience. In ear hearing aids are suitable for adults with mild, moderate or severe hearing loss and can help you regain the freedom of confidence in your hearing ability.
Benefits of in the ear hearing aids
- Made to fit your lifestyle and budget
In the ear hearing aids come in a range of different colours. You can be sure of finding ones to match your hair and skin tone so they are barely noticeable without looking closely. Some people prefer the in the ear versus the more conventional behind the ear styles.
- Quick and comfortable
It can take just 10 minutes to take the impression of your ears for perfectly fitting hearing aids. Your audiologist uses these earmoulds to create your custom-made in the ear hearing aids. This bespoke approach ensures the finished aids are an exact match for the contours of your ears, and it’s all part of the Amplifon service.

Modern in the ear hearing aids are highly sophisticated pieces of equipment. These hearing products use noise reduction and directional technology for more natural hearing.

- Easy to handle and control
Whilst smaller hearing aids might be more discreet, you may find that some of the larger in ear styles easier to put in place or remove especially of you may be experiencing dexterity problems. This can also makes in ear hearing aids easier to clean and maintain.
