Costco's open-fit hearing aids are not custom-molded to the user's ear, but rather simply worn behind the ear with a thin tube used to connect to the ear canal. Costco offers both a traditional and Bluetooth-capable version of this style, and the style is recommended for users with mild to severe hearing loss. Costco's other behind-the-ear hearing aids are custom-molded to the user's ear, and work for users with mild to profound hearing loss.

All of Costco's in-the-ear hearing aids are custom-molded to the user's outer ear and ear canal. The outer ear hearing aids are suggested for users with mild to severe hearing loss and fill up most of the outer ear. On the contrary, Costco's other two in the ear styles are either partially or entirely in the ear canal. They are recommended for users with only mild to moderate hearing loss.
