WHICH HEARING AID SHOULD I BUY? (Levels of STYLE OF HEARING AIDS – Open Fit BTE)
In our last conversation we discussed the Behind-the-Ear (BTE) and earmould STYLE of
Today we are looking at the smaller BTE option, the Open Fit BTE.
The Open Fit BTE is in two parts: the actual hearing aid which sits behind your ear which is
connected by slim tubing to a custom-made shell or a disposable dome.
The ADVANTAGES of the Open Fit BTE are:
- The slim tubing is much less visible than the wider tubing of an earmould

- The domes are smaller again
- The electronics of the aid are well away from moisture and ear wax, and the slimtube and
shell can be pulled off the hearing aid to be cleaned with wire.
