AGX Hearing’s Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids house the most flexible and adaptable technology available. Their custom earpieces are either molded to fit your outer ear for a natural, comfortable fit or mounted to open-canal earpieces to prevent the “plugged up” feeling that some users experience as confining.
In BTE hearing aids, both the microphone and speaker are housed in the case behind the ear, with sound traveling to the ear canal through a thin translucent tube. Behind-the-Ear devices are typically equipped with a simple rocker switch that allows you to swiftly and easily control the volume and programs settings for this device.
What’s more, many AGX Hearing BTEs come in miniature versions, so you can get the same superior technology in a smaller device. BTE hearing aids also have the advantage of using larger battery sizes, so you can expect better battery life and greater ease of use with BTE devices.
