Listed are some of very famous hearing aids manufactured by Bernafon:
BTE [Behind-The-Ear]: This hearing device fits behind the ear and can vary depending upon size and their power performance. The sound tube provided which connects the instrument to the ear tube can be either a standard or customized depending upon the specification given by the customer.
CIC [Completely-In-The-Canal] / ITC [In-The-Canal]: This is one of the the smallest hearing aids available in the market and thus these CIC and ITC hearing aids are almost invisible. The drawback connected with CIC is that it is not useful for people suffering from severe hearing loss problem or those having a very narrow ear canal. For people with such problems, another available option is the ITC or the ITE [In The Ear] instrument. ITC hearing aid is larger and easier than CIC in terms of handling. The program and volume change can be adjusted manually.
RITE [Receiver-In-The-Ear]: This hearing aid known as RITE is the ultimate combination of the benefits of two machines i.e. BTE and CIC. This machine is perfect in sound quality and design. This hearing aid device also stays almost invisible as the speaker unit is fitted inside the ear canal.
