Open fit hearing aids

Open fit hearing aids do not completely fill your ear canal. Instead, an open fit device is usually a discreet, behind-the-ear hearing aid with a small tube or wire that connects to a speaker in the ear canal.

Key features:

  • Leaves the ear canal open; doesn’t plug the ear
  • Reduces or cancels out feedback
  • May use very small batteries
  • Better for those with tinnitus because plugging the ear can make symptoms louder
