In-the-Ear (ITE) style hearing aids use larger batteries which can power a bigger receiver. This makes them a superb choice for more severe hearing losses. Larger batteries also last longer and are more “user-friendly” to handle.  It is a popular choice among patients who find gripping objects a challenge.  Most patients find that though ITE’s are more noticeable to others that their quality of hearing improves significantly.
