Open fit

Open fit hearing aids are small devices placed behind the ear with a slim tube attached to the device and inserted down the ear canal. They are non-occluding (they do not block your ear). This style is good for people with a high frequency hearing loss or mild to moderate hearing loss. They help you hear better when background noise is present.

Advantages

Same durability as behind the ear hearing aids

Less change for wax damage as no electronics go into the canal

Smaller unit behind the ear; can be lighter and inconspicuous

Less occlusion with open domes/molds; allows you to hear sounds naturally where hearing is better.

Directional microphones available

Rechargeable option available

Compatible with wireless technology

Disadvantages

Thin tube prone to becoming blocked
Requires some dexterity to insert and manipulate the aid
