Receiver In Canal (RIC):
Receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids sit behind the ear and deliver sound directly into the ear. This is because the receiver is located outside of the hearing aid itself and instead inside ear canal. The hearing aid and receiver are connected by a discreet ‘receiver wire’ which houses an electrical cable.
Receiver-in-canal models, small, stylish and superbly discreet; its high-end features deliver outstanding hearing, so that wearer with practically all levels of hearing loss can hear effortlessly in every situation. It is attached to the main body of the RIC hearing aid by an electronic wire. With RIC hearing aids, sound is sent directly from the housing behind your ear through a thin wire to the receiver which is in your ear canal. Not only do they provide outstanding sound, they are discreet and are fully automatic.
