About This Type:

With a comfortable, open-fit design that’s perfect for almost all types of hearing loss, the receiver-in-canal (RIC) devices make hearing more clearly a breeze. The speaker and microphone are both located on the shell of RIC devices. The speaker is fed into the ear canal with a comfortable, flexible dome, which allows sound to pass through your ear canal naturally. These open fittings reduce wind and traffic noise. More importantly, they eliminate problems and embarrassment with feedback (that “whistling” sound) that plagued older hearing aids.

Although RIC devices sit behind your ear, the small, sleek design means that they’re barely visible when you wear it. What people will notice is how relaxed and confident you are when speaking with people in groups because speech is now clear and easy for you to understand.
