Receiver in Canal 

Receiver in Canal (RIC) hearing aids are a type of behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid that is becoming increasingly popular due to their discreet design and effective hearing support. Unlike traditional BTE hearing aids, where the speaker or receiver sits within the main body of the hearing aid behind the ear, the RIC hearing aid has the speaker placed inside the ear canal. 

Bluetooth Enabled

This distinct design feature & it’s benefits:

Improved Sound Quality

By placing the receiver directly in the ear canal, RIC hearing aids can deliver a more natural and clearer sound. This is especially beneficial in reducing the occlusion effect, a phenomenon where one's own voice sounds louder and more unnatural.

Comfort and Discreteness

RIC devices are typically smaller and more discreet than traditional BTE models. The speaker's placement in the ear canal allows for a smaller, less visible behind-the-ear component. This makes RIC hearing aids a popular choice for individuals who are conscious about the visibility of their hearing aids.

Less Feedback

The separation of the microphone and receiver helps to reduce feedback, a common issue with hearing aids where amplified sound from the speaker is picked up by the microphone and reamplified.


RIC hearing aids can accommodate a wide range of hearing losses, from mild to severe. They are equipped with various features like directional microphones, wireless connectivity, and customizable settings to enhance the listening experience in different environments.

Easy Maintenance

The design of RIC hearing aids allows for easy maintenance and cleaning. The earpiece that sits in the canal can be easily replaced if it becomes clogged with earwax, without the need for professional servicing.
