Behind The Ear (BTE) Hearing Aids
Among the great range of hearing aids offered by Claso, divided according to their characteristics and options, you’ll find the Behind-The-Ear (BTE). These hearing aids are aimed at those clients who have a moderate to profound hearing loss. These hearing aids are, in the absence of a better definition, the “classic” ones that we all have in our minds when we think of what a hearing aid looks like.
Behind-the-ear hearing aids tend to be the largest and most powerful. These hearing aids that you will find in Claso have the added functionality of adjusting the volume through a small lever, and their maintenance and usage is quite simple.
As a general rule, BTE's are designed for users who suffer from serious hearing loss. Also those who have some difficulty manipulating small elements can opt for these hearing aids, which are more robust and easier to fit. This means that, aesthetically, they are generally more visible than RIC hearing aids, although it should be noted that thanks to the great technological advances that the sector is experiencing, some behind-the-ear hearing aids have adopted a similar aesthetic design than that of the RIC.
These behind-the-ear hearing systems are ideal for children up to the age of 10. During the growing season the ear itself also changes its shape constantly. The BTE allows you to adjust the moulds without having to touch the hearing aid. This, together with their ease of handling and use, makes them considerably more recommendable than the Custom or RIC, which have smaller elements that are more difficult to manipulate. In addition, thanks to one of the peculiarities of these hearing aids, their ease of cleaning and maintenance, behind-the-ear devices are also ideal for users who suffer from an excess of earwax.
These hearing aids are usually the cheapest on the market. Because of their performance and value for money, we certainly recommend them. So, if you want to know if you can wear a behind-the-ear hearing system without any problems, send us your audiogram or contact us so that we can carry out a complete hearing study for free.
Our main concern at Claso is your hearing health and your quality of life, and we won't let you choose a hearing aid blindly. We will accompany you through this process to choose the best hearing aid for your needs.
