People often ask me a very important question – what style of hearing aid is best for me with the hearing loss I have?
Let’s talk about the different styles of hearing aids that Audicus offers and the benefits of each. Our hearing aids styles include Receiver-in-the-canal (RIC), Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC), and Behind the Ear (BTE). Styles are customized and can be programmed to your hearing loss.
Receiver in the Canal (RIC)
The microphone of this hearing aid is housed in a discreet hearing aid case. This is where the sound enters the hearing aid. The receiver, or speaker, goes into your ear canal. The two parts are attached by a thin electronic wire.

2. Snapshot of The Spirit
Best for: All the latest industry technology (Remote adjustability, Bluetooth & Recharge)
The Spirit is one of our most advanced hearing aids, featuring the latest industry technology and features. It’s rechargeable, Bluetooth compatible, and remotely adjustable. In other words, the Spirit does it all.
If you’ve ever had to go in-office for an adjustment, you probably understand just how beneficial remote adjustable capabilities are. Rather than go in person to see an audiologist, a product specialist can program adjustments and make sound changes in real-time from a remote location. This unique functionality means you can customize sound without ever needing to leave your home.
The Spirit allows the most flexibility and freedom with hearing care.

Best for: Small size for those who want a less-noticeable, invisible hearing aid
The Mini is a Completely in the Canal (CIC) hearing aid.
The Mini is an invisible, lightweight hearing aid that fits into your ear canal and is great for mask-wearing. It stays in your ear when you remove your mask. It’s so easy to handle and comfortable to wear. The Aura is designed to be discrete, for those who don’t want their hearing aid to be as visible as other models.
