In-the-Ear (ITE) style of hearing amplifier is much less popular than the behind-the-ear models, so there is much less variety to choose from on the market. You can get many low-end, low-quality ITE products but they are often marketed to hunters who need amplification when out in nature and not intended for users with hearing loss. An ITE style is designed to fit into the ear snuggly. They are visible within the ear, so if discretion is a priority, then this style might not be right for you. Generally, ITE models are easy to handle and have easy-to-access controls.
