Behind the ear (BTE)

Behind The Ear hearing aids are the most common type of hearing instrument, mainly because it is the type that the NHS provides. It consists of the hearing aid part which as the name suggests, goes behind the ear, a mould which goes in the ear and a piece of tubing that connects these two pieces.
