Behind-The-Ear hearing aids

Behind The Ear hearing aid (abbreviated: BTE) consist in all design variants of a technical part, which is worn in a housing behind the ear and an earpas piece, which, depending on the version, is worn completely inside the outer ear canal or partly in the outer part of the outer ear canal – the auricle.
Between the two is a tube connection (Classic and thin tube – BTE) or a thin electrical line connection (ReceiverInCanal / RIC – BTE).

Each of our BTE hearing aids has at least the following features:

  • Automatic volume control
  • Automatic noise detection and reduction
  • Automatic feedback detection and reduction
  • Dual microphone system with
    | 360° characteristics
    | 60° directional pattern to the front (directional microphone)
  • optional 3 listening programs, individually created by us according to your hearing needs
  • Moisture and dust protection by nanotechnology (at least IP54, usually IP67)
Details on design-related equipment are listed further down on this page.
The presence of different equipment, comfort and functional features is determined by the selection of a technology level. In order to select a technology level, it is necessary for us as hearing care professionals to create your personal hearing profile.

RIC-Behind The Ear hearing aids

EX | RIC - HdO

Reciver-In-Canal – Behind The Ear hearing aids (abbreviated: RIC-BTE) enable the smallest possible size and design of the behind-the-ear hearing aids.
By outsourcing the speaker/receiver (loudspeaker) from the hearing aid housing – to external – there is an enormous space saving, so that the hearing aid can be built more compactly.

The receiver supply line connects the technical housing to the receiver (speaker). It is much finer and more inconspicuous in diameter than the sound hose of a thin hose – BTE.
Electrical strands are passed through the receiver supply line, which control the listener in the ear canal or serve as an antenna for connectivity functions. These shimmer copper to rose gold colors on the skin of the user and change with it, making the entire supply line almost invisible.

The handset is worn directly in the user’s ear canal.
Ideally and technically correct, it is held there by a custom-made earpiece in a reproducible, defined wearing position.

The silicone screens/domes, which are often seen on product photos and unfortunately also in hearing aid users, are an invention of the
hearing aid industry, which actually only serves to enable a quick first hearing aid test by the user – for
With a few justified exceptional cases, these temporary arrangements are not provided for permanently and are not suitable.
The hearing aid industry and many competitors often suggest simplicity and lightness to the user, which – if at all – is only true for a short time. Such an acoustic coupling cannot guarantee sustainable success and meet the needs of the user.

The professionally experienced and sustainable quality-oriented, reputable hearing care professional will always adapt an individual, custom-made earpiece to his customer. As a rule, we already do this as part of the hearing aid testing and comparative hearing aid fitting.

Technology and Equipment

We carry all well-known hearing aid manufacturers, in all technology levels and the associated equipment and comfort features. When selecting our technology, we focus exclusively on your hearing needs and needs. We are not dependent on concentrating on individual suppliers in order to realize large quantities there and thus to realize an attractive purchase.

We can act in this way because we have organized ourselves in a purchasing community and can thus realize correspondingly attractive purchasing conditions at all hearing aid manufacturers.

Mini - Behind The Ear hearing aids

Oticon Hinter dem Ohr Hörgerät Geno, silber

It was first released in 2003 with the legendary Resound Air.

This was the first time that a sound tube more than half as thin as the standard sound tube of the Classic BTE was used for a hearing aid, which had the visual advantage that the behind the ear hearing system on the ear, viewed from the front and the side, now became almost invisible for the first time, as the sound tube was very difficult to recognize. The effect was enhanced by omitting the carrying hook/hearing angle and leading the thin sound tube over the upper base of the ear to behind the ear.

At the same time, the hearing aid housing, including technology, has been greatly miniaturized, so that it is harder to detect from behind the ear. An attractive color palette did the rest. The receiver (speaker) is limited in power due to the size, so that maximum moderate hearing loss can be supplied. Otherwise, the design is the same as the Classic BTE.

Optionally, however, a carrying hook is also possible, so that the hearing system can also be used for hearing loss that is present in the low, medium and high frequencies (broadband).

The visual advantage of the thin hose was quickly transferred to the Classic BTE by optionally omitting the carrying hook/listening angle. Thus, depending on the hearing loss, these are now also to be worn as a thin-tube hearing system. This is limited to low to severe hearing loss in the medium to high frequency range.

Classic - Behind The Ear hearing aids

Klassik -HdO

They are the direct descendants of the pocket hearing device, with the difference that all electronic components are housed in a housing, which is usually adapted to the shape of the ear.

These include in the rough microphone/s, processor, handset (speaker), possibly div. Interfaces for wireless connections, power source, and if necessary operating elements

At the upper end of the housing is a so-called carrying hook / listening angle, which in turn is connected to a sound hose, which then leads to a custom-made earpiece.
The earpiece adapts the hearing aid to the individual ear of the user and, with the hearing aid, is one of the most important, key components of a hearing system.
