Types of hearing aid
These are the most discreet hearing aids available. They are custom made to fit the exact size and shape of your ear canals to ensure they are comfortable, and fit deep enough to completely disappear from view. Nobody but you will know they are there.
They are easy to insert and remove, and one of the advantages of IIC instruments is reduced wind noise due to the deep microphone placement.
They do however have a limited fitting range and are only suitable for mild to moderate hearing losses.
These are also custom made and fit right inside the ear canal to be virtually invisible. They can incorporate wireless technology for improved performance and a better listening experience with TVs, radios, music, mobile and landline phones.
Modern feedback management systems mean that even severe hearing losses can be fitted with CIC hearing aids, making them suitable for most people.
These are custom made to fit the shape and size of your ear canals and fit securely in the outer ear. They are unobtrusive and have optional user controls as well as directional microphones to help in noisy environments.
