RICs are a type of open-fit hearing aid that use a thin plastic “micro” tube that extends from the body of the hearing aid (housed behind the ear) over the outer ear and into the ear canal. A small, soft tip sits inside the ear canal without sealing it. This way, air and sound can continue to flow to the ear canal naturally, reducing feelings of being “plugged up.”

Disadvantages of
Receiver in Canal (RIC) Hearing Aids

  • Only suitable for those with mild to moderate hearing loss
  • Receiver end is vulnerable to moisture in ear canal and can require frequent repairs
  • Less intrusive than other hearing aid styles means it can be easy to lose them and not notice

Advantages of
Receiver in Canal (RIC) Hearing Aids

  • Minimizes the sounds of your own voice and chewing by allowing these sounds to escape the ear canal
  • Tiny casings are often totally obscured behind the outer ear
  • Nearly invisible tubing makes RIC aids virtually unnoticeable
