Gippsland Audiology supply and fit Behind-The-Ear (BTE) hearing aids in open fit and standard canal designs. Both sit snugly on the top of the ear.
Open Fit BTE
Mostly suited to those with good-to-fair low-frequency hearing but need amplification for the high frequencies.
The unique feature of this hearing aid is that the ear canal is not completely blocked, allowing low frequency sounds to enter the ear and be heard naturally.
Mostly suited for greater degrees of hearing loss, this BTE is held in place by an ear mould that sits in the ear canal and channels sound into the ear.
The ear mould is custom made for your ear from an impression taken of the canal.
