Types of Hearing Aids Available at Argus Audiology
There are numerous types of hearing aids. Different factors go into determining the type of hearing device you need, including the degree of hearing loss present, power requirements, your manual dexterity, cosmetic concerns and various other aspects. You can see some of the different types of hearing aids we have available below.
These types of hearing aids are a great choice for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. They are quite discreet, as this style sits deep inside the ear canal, making it virtually invisible.

Micro-Behind-the-Ear (Water Resistant)
This style is cosmetically appealing, however, may be slightly visible. It is easy to handle and offers wireless functionality. It has a water resistant-ingress protection rating of IP67.
This style is best for mild to severe hearing loss. It is more discreet than the traditional BTE model. It rests behind the ear and uses a thin tube to send sound to the ear.
Design RITE: Receiver-in-the-Ear
These hearing aids are best for mild to moderate hearing loss. The design consists of a small, petal-shaped shell that sits in the shadow at the top of your ear. Its nearly invisible sound tube that enters the ear canal makes it an extremely discreet yet non-traditional hearing aid.
Mini RITE: Mini Receiver-in-the-Ear
This style is most suitable for mild to severe hearing loss. This style is very similar to the Designer RITE hearing aids: they also fit discreetly behind the ear and transmit sound via a nearly invisible sound tube.
Virtually invisible, the open-fit hearing aid resembles BTE devices. The main difference is that these aids have a clear tube running directly into the bowl of your ear (not to be confused with the ear canal).
Types of Custom Hearing Protection
If your lifestyle makes your ears vulnerable to hearing loss or other impairments, then you might think about wearing an ear protection device during at-risk activities. Some industrial tools and equipment can cause permanent damage to your ears in just a few minutes. Be safe; prevention is better than cure. Below are different types of hearing protection with descriptions of how each can be applied.
Solid Noise Plugs
Constant noise exposure can seriously damage your hearing. If you’re working in a factory, a construction site or any other type of loud environment, then consider investing in solid noise plugs.
Acoustic Filtered Plugs
These are similar to the solid noise plugs with the difference being that you can still hear speech and other noises that are closest to you
Ideal for people who have difficulty sleeping or who live in a noisy environment. Sleep plugs are available as solid or filtered plugs.
Ideal for people who need to keep their ear canals dry, whether they have a history of ear infections, ear surgery or chronic conditions such as drainage, swim plugs or molds keep out the water and humidity.
