Receiver In Canal (RIC)

Receiver In Canal (RIC)


The receiver-in-canal (RIC) model is a newer development in hearing aids and is suitable for mild to severe hearing loss.

Compared to a classic behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid, the receiver of the RIC (the loudspeaker) is placed in the ear-tip instead of in the housing, thereby reducing its size.

The RIC model consists of three parts: The housing, which sits behind the ear, and a thin earwire connecting the housing to the receiver. The receiver goes directly into the ear canal.

The RIC model is a very discreet, yet powerful hearing aid, which works fully automatically.
