RIC

Receiver In Canal 

RICS have an external receiver that sits directly in the ear canal.

The RIC hearing aid is similar on first glance to BTE hearing aids, they sit discreetly behind the ear and are connected by a thin wire with a receiver placed inside the opening of the ear canal. They are less noticeable than more traditional BTE hearing aids types.

Regular changes of the wax guards are necessary to keep the hearing aid running at it’s optimum performance. They need to be regularly maintained as they are susceptible to both moisture and ear wax blockage or damage.


Most RICs use batteries which are generally smaller than BTE aids which may mean more battery changes. They are also available in rechargeable options – which means no more battery changes and enhanced moisture protection.
