Open Fit Behind-the-ear Hearing Aids (OTE)
Open fit hearing aids are extremely small and nearly invisible to an observer. They work via a clear tube that comes from behind the ear and rests in the ear canal. However, unlike with standard hearing aids, there is no earmold to occlude the ear canal when open fit hearing aids are worn – the clear tube is extremely thin and leaves the canal open. Open fit hearing aids are also lightweight – many users find that after a few minutes of wearing them, they cannot feel them at all.
