Receiver-in-canal hearing aids can be looked as at the new generation of hearing aids as they make use of innovative advances in technology to provide an effective and inconspicuous solution for those suffering from hearing loss.
RIC aids are also known as receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) hearing aids, or may be referred to as canal receiver technology (CRT).
RIC hearing aids have a small casing that sits behind the outer ear. This casing holds the microphone, amplifier and processer, but (unlike BTEs) the receiver is situated in a small, soft dome that is placed inside the ear. Although this dome sits directly in the ear, it does not seal it completely. The casing and the receiver are connected by a wire. This design allows RIC aids to be much smaller in size than behind-the-ear hearing aids, and far less conspicuous.
