Which hearing aid style is best for you?


Hear better in the style that suits you

It can be difficult to decide which hearing aid style is right. Because each person’s hearing loss is different, Philips HearLink premium hearing aids come in many different styles, models, and colors to match skin tones, needs, and preferences.

On this page, you can learn more about the different styles and maybe come one step further in your journey towards choosing the right hearing aids for you.

The technological features of the hearing aids

For people with hearing loss, the biggest difficulty of all is to communicate in noisy places. While most hearing aids can provide decent support in quiet places, it takes the most sophisticated technology to provide efficient support in noise.

  • Receiver-in-the-ear
    & behind-the-ear styles

    RITE hearing aids fit behind the ear with a speaker that inserts into the ear canal. BTE hearing aids fit behind the ear with an earpiece that fits into the ear canal. They are still small but come slightly bigger so they can accommodate a range of additional technological features such as connectivity to mobile phones, special settings for music and more.

  • Philips HearLink in-the-canal in-the-ear hearing aid (ITC)

    In-the-ear styles

    These styles are very small and fit in the ear canal. They improve hearing, but have fewer extra technological perks.

Philips HearLink hearing aids use groundbreaking SoundMap technology

Philips HearLink hearing aids are equipped with SoundMap technology which is made up of three sound processing pillars: effective noise control, advanced amplification, and groundbreaking feedback (when the sound travels back into the microphone and is amplified again) cancellation.

The SoundMap technology helps you to be able to hear the sounds around you, so you are able to connect with people.
