In The Ear (ITE) Full Shell Hearing Aids.

What is an In the Ear (ITE) Hearing Aid?

In the ear hearing aids (ITE) are a great choice of aid for people wanting the most advanced technology within their aid who are limited by dexterity, eyesight or visual impairment. They are sometimes referred to as “full shell” hearing aids and sit within the bowl of the ear, similar to the earmould of the traditional behind the ear style, but with all the components sitting within the ear rather than behind it. Studies show that people are more likely to wear their devices if they are unnoticeable to others, hence the development of smaller and smaller hearing aids. With this device there is a portion of the hearing aid that sits within the ear canal and another small part that shows in bowl of the outer ear.

Because this aid sits within the ear itself, the telephone can be used in the natural way, although as there is a part sitting in the bowl of the ear, some users report they take care not to let the phone touch the aid to avoid possible feedback sound.

Wearers with dexterity issues can sometimes find smaller models like IIC, CIC or ITC too small to handle. Similarly, some wearers struggle to correctly place the hearing aid on top of the ear with BTE devices. Therefore, this style is a good alternative, and this model is often recommended for those looking for something different or smaller than the behind the ear models but also wanting ease of use and insertion, due to its larger size.

Are full shell devices compatible with Bluetooth and rechargeable technologies?

Yes. Most ITE models are large enough to fit these components within the hearing aids. Find out more about Bluetooth hearing aids.  Custom rechargeable hearing aids are currently only being offered by one manufacturers Starkey.

Full Shell (ITE) models Vs in the canal (ITC) models

Some differences between the two custom made models:

  • ITE style may take a larger battery
  • ITE often easier to insert as larger and therefore more to hold on to
  • ITE sometimes offer higher power level
  • ITE good option for extra retention in the ear for none-standard ear shapes/sizes

Are they suitable with severe hearing loss?

Due to their size, there is a greater seal on the ear canal to allow for less feedback than smaller models and therefore your aid can reach higher levels than the IIC or CIC styles. This makes them a good option for those with severe losses looking for discretion or ease of use.

(ITE) Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Custom made and comfortable
  • Natural use with the telephone
  • Suitable for severe losses
  • Full technology functionality in (most cases) in comparison to small custom styles
  • Rechargeable and Bluetooth options
  • May be good option for those with dexterity issues due to larger size
  • Battery insertion easier as larger battery than some smaller custom models

Cons

  • Largest custom style – more discreet models available
  • May be more susceptible to moisture/ear wax in comparison to BTE styles
  • Can cause occlusion with some hearing losses -echo sound when speaking/eating
  • Can be susceptible to wind noise as not located completely within the ear canal

Full Shell Hearing Aid Batteries and Accessories

This style also required replacement ear wax filters which help to prevent wax from damaging the internal component that sit within the aid. Although one manufacturer offers a rechargeable option, most ITE models will require 13 batteries, however the battery life is the standard 7-14 days as opposed to 2-5 in smaller devices.

Don’t worry, we will explain all necessary running costs, how often items will need replacement, what comes as standard or the replacement cost. At Integrate Hearing we make sure you are up to speed with everything you need to know so there will be no hidden costs!

ITE – are these custom in the ear devices available on the NHS?

Most NHS providers still currently only offer BTE style hearing aids. These can come in both the more traditional style with a custom-made ear mold or for milder losses you will be offered an open fit BTE with a slim tube. More recently some NHS providers have started to offer Receiver in canal (RIC) style aids, although it is only some. For more discreet models such as custom in the ear styles you may need to see a private audiologist. At Integrate Hearing we offer all styles of hearing aids from all UK leading manufacturers. Find out more about our other discreet hearing aid styles.

Attending the clinic on Deansgate today for Audiogram hearing test. Nice, bright, new clinic and the Audiologist, Monum, was brilliant. Very knowledgable, very professional and I would recommend this clinic if you need hearing tests or audiology. Great price too.

Contacted Integrate in the morning and was given an appointment same day. I'm quite a nervous patient, but from the moment I arrived I felt very much at ease. Monum carried out microsuction, and from start to finish and was totally professional. She explained every step prior to carrying it out, and I wasn't hurried at all. She further advised on aftercare and how to manage any future flare ups . I would totally recommend going to Integrate, and this will be my go to place in the future. Thank you again Monum.

I recently visited the team at the Cheadle clinic, having already used the services at their smaller hub in Wrexham, and wow, the warmth, friendliness and professionalism of the team was outstanding. I came away with having my issue resolved and more knowledgeable about how to look after my ears and my overall hearing. Whilst I live an hour from the Cheadle clinic, there are many other clinics I could visit in between, I will always be making an appointment to see the team at Integrate Hearing. I would not trust anyone else with such an important thing as my hearing.

The micro suction they use is painless and within a few minutes your ears are clear & your hearing is spot on. I would wholeheartedly recommend Olivia, you will not be disappointed!

Delighted with the ease of getting an appointment and the efficiency with which the appointment concluded. (It's quite horrifying seeing what has been extracted, as well.)I really like the idea of Olivia putting me in her diary system to call me for a further appointment in a number of years time.

Excellent service! Olivia was patient, informative and caring. Ear wax removal by micro suction was far more efficient and not at all uncomfortable when compared to previous irrigation methods through NHS surgeries. A helpful suggestion might be to charge less for one ear, in order to stay competitive with some other names offering similar services.

I've been putting olive oil droplets into my ear - as per doctor's orders - and it just wasn't having any effect at all. Made an appointment with Olivia,and I can hear properly for the first time in months. It's really wonderful. Thanks Olivia, super professional, clearly explained, tidy and clean!

Attended Integrate Hearing after suffering hearing loss for about ten days due to a blockage caused by a build up of ear wax.

Olivia came out to my home during lockdown which was a great service. I had microsuction on one ear that had been troubling me with a build up of wax. This is a common problem for me and I get it done once a year. Not wanting to venture into town to my usual place, the home visit was very welcome. The procedure was very quick and painless. She also gave me a thorough hearing test which reassured me about my hearing. Being over 50 and experiencing tinnitus for many years I wanted to know if I had any hearing loss. Good to know that there is nothing wrong with my hearing.

I visited Olivia in Cheadle towards the end of 2020 with a view to getting some new hearing aids. My sister had recommended Integrate Hearing to me. From my first appointment I was really impressed. Olivia was very reassuring and patient. Most importantly, I never felt pressured into buying. I had several appointments to ensure the correct fitting. I had previously only been able to wear a hearing aid in my right ear as the one for my left ear wasn’t a very uncomfortable fit. Thanks to Olivia I now have correct fitting aids for both ears. So pleased I decided to make the change.

I was completely blocked in both ears due to earwax this was caused by ear plugs worn over a long time, it was uncomfortable and disconcerting.

Very pleased to have found Olivia, who has been a big help with post-Covid hearing problems. I saw her first for a Hearing Check and wax removal. The system she uses for this was much more pleasant than my previous experiences of wax removal on the NHS. The check found some hearing loss and Olivia recommended a full hearing test, at no extra charge, which was an hour and a half appointment. From this, she was able to tell me where the problem lay, explain it to me, then let me try some hearing aids. She emailed me a record of the results, and has written to my GP to inform him of her findings. I have been disheartened by the lack of interest in my long Covid symptoms from my GP, and was so reassured by the way Olivia listened to me and took a keen interest in getting to the bottom of my newly acquired tinnitus and hearing loss. I highly recommend her services.

Olivia is absolutely brilliant. Can’t praise her too highly. Wasted 9 months at another clinic where none of my problems were ever solved. Olivia gave me back my hearing in under two. She is the Super Woman of hearing problems!

Visited Olivia today at Cheadle for ear wax removal. I was very impressed with her professionalism and friendliness which I feel would put even a nervous patient quickly at ease. The treatment was trouble free and pain free and reached a successful outcome with complete removal of the wax. I would not hesitate to recommend Olivia to any potential patients.

After having microsuction, I discussed the possibility of a hearing aid from Olivia after having problems with my NHS aid. At each appointment I found Olivia very thorough and professional. She was careful to ensure that I had exactly the right fit and that I was happy with it. She was helpful, pleasant and made me feel relaxed. I am very happy with my new neat hearing aid. Thanks Olivia!
