Open-fit hearing instruments have become immensely popular because they deliver natural sound quality. This is due, in large part, to the fact that the open-fit design eliminates the muffled effect that might come with other hearing instruments. While similar to a traditional behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing instrument, an open-fit instrument has a much more compact design. As a result, an open-fit sits discreetly behind the ear of wearers with barely a hint of noticeability. Sound is delivered from the main body of the instrument through a slender, clear plastic tube and tip that practically disappears in the wearer’s ear. Because the tip leaves the ear canal open, wearers get only the frequencies they need without any stuffy feeling in their ears.
P.S. Open-fit hearing instruments are particularly suited for addressing mild to moderate hearing loss.
