Behind-The-Ear (BTE) hearing aid is considered to be ideal for most of the people with hearing problem. It also results in less problem in feedback due to the greater distance between receiver and microphone. Moreover, this device rarely needs any repair.
However, there are various disadvantages such as this device can be larger in size as compared to other hearing aid devices. Hence, manufacturers are introducing micro BTE hearing aids that are smaller in size, offering convenience to the user.
Another problem with this device is that they may have ear molds or ear buds. Here, ear molds need to be remade every two to four years, in order to preserve the acoustic seal. Need for re-tube at a certain period of time is also a problem with BTE hearing aids
