Degree of Hearing Loss
A BTE Style of Hearing Aid can manage almost any degree and configuration of hearing loss and is adaptable should your hearing loss change, whereas the ITC style of aid does not. As space is a premium in ITC hearing aids because of the battery, more frequent changes are required. Rechargeable ITC hearing aids are now emerging but they still struggle to get the size down sufficiently for it to be cosmetic. They are a very welcome advent however and will increase the pool of people who might now be able to manage such as device more easily.
