Signia Styletto Hearing Aids


The classic behind-the-ear model (BTE) is the choice if you have a severe to profound hearing loss or if you have very small ear canals, which makes it difficult to fit an entire hearing aid into your ear. All the electronic components of a classic BTE model are located in a housing placed behind your ear. Also, the BTE aids are bit visible but easy to be cleaned and handled, and are relatively sturdy.



The receiver-in-canal (RIC) model is a newer development in hearing aids and they’re best for mild to moderate high-frequency losses where low-frequency hearing is still normal or near normal. Compared to a classic behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid, the receiver of the RIC (the loudspeaker) is placed in the ear-tip instead of in the housing, thereby reducing its size which makes it virtually invisible. Since, these aids leave the ear canal open some people like this type because their own voice does not sound as strange to them as with a BTE.



The invisible hearing aid is suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss and for those who don’t want others to know about their hearing loss. IIC is a “deep canal” aid, meaning it rests comfortably in the second band of your ear canal. It is digital and programmable, this results in a completely invisible hearing and filter out unwanted background noise and improve listening in noisy environments and provide a comfortable, made-for-your fit.



These hearing aids are less noticeable and are very easy to operate, even if the user has poor dexterity. The hearing device is housed within a custom-made shell that fits comfortably inside the canal of each ear and delivers sound directly to the inner ear. We can also provide volume control and program change button as per requirement. It is bigger than CIC but still less visible compare to BTE



The CIC is the smallest model in hearing aids and is especially suitable if you have a mild to moderate hearing loss. It is a custom made shell that contains all the electronic components. The shell is placed deeply in the ear canal, making the hearing aid almost invisible. A CIC therefore has a big aesthetic advantage: No one can actually see that you are wearing a hearing aid.

Hearing aids come in various types, styles, and technologies, designed to suit different levels of hearing loss, preferences, and lifestyles. Here are some common types of hearing aids:

  1. Behind-the-Ear (BTE):
    • BTE hearing aids sit behind or on top of the outer ear.
    • They have a plastic case that contains all the electronics.
    • Sound is delivered to the ear through a clear plastic tube or a custom earmold.
    • BTEs are suitable for all degrees of hearing loss, from mild to profound.
  2. In-the-Ear (ITE):
    • ITE hearing aids are custom-made to fit the shape of the individual’s ear canal.
    • They sit inside the outer ear bowl, making them less visible than BTE models.
    • ITEs are suitable for mild to severe hearing loss.
  3. In-the-Canal (ITC) and Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC):
    • ITC and CIC hearing aids are smaller and fit partly or completely into the ear canal.
    • They are less visible and offer cosmetic benefits.
    • They are suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss.
  4. Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) or Receiver-in-the-Ear (RITE):
    • RIC hearing aids are similar to BTEs but have a receiver (speaker) in the ear canal.
    • The main body of the hearing aid sits behind the ear.
    • RICs provide a more natural sound and are suitable for mild to severe hearing loss.
  5. Extended Wear Hearing Aids:
    • These are hearing aids designed to be worn continuously for several months at a time.
    • They are placed deep in the ear canal by a professional and can be worn while sleeping and showering.
    • They are suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss.
  6. Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids (BAHA):
    • BAHA devices are surgically implanted and work by conducting sound through bone vibrations.
    • They are suitable for individuals with conductive or mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness.
  7. Disposable Hearing Aids:
    • These are affordable, pre-programmed hearing aids that are ready to use out of the box.
    • They are typically used as a temporary solution and are not custom-fitted.

Each type of hearing aid has its advantages and disadvantages, and the most suitable type depends on factors such as the degree and type of hearing loss, lifestyle, dexterity, and cosmetic preferences. It’s essential to consult with an audiologist or hearing care professional to determine the best option for your specific needs.
