Receiver-in-canal (RIC)

Receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids sit behind the ear and deliver sound directly into the ear. This is because the receiver is located outside of the hearing aid itself and instead inside the ear canal. The hearing aid and receiver are connected by a discreet ‘receiver wire’ which houses an electrical cable.


A more natural and crisper sound quality given the receiver is located inside the ear canal. • Can often be more discreet and invisible than custom invisible-in-canal (IIC) and completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing aids.
Different receiver power levels can be fitted and therefore suitable for even profound hearing losses.

The ability to change receiver power levels means the hearing aid is somewhat ‘future proof’ if your hearing deteriorates.

Different ear domes can be fitted to the receiver inside the ear making them suitable for a  variety of types of hearing losses.

Dual microphones help to improve speech understanding in noise.

Wireless and telecoil options.
