About canal style hearing aids

    cic-bc-380x380

    CIC hearing aids are similar to the in the ear hearing aids and are individually custom sized to fit discreetly inside the ear canal. The only thing visible to the eye is normally the battery drawer and face plate. CIC hearings aids sit completely in the ear canal and may be hidden well with colours that match your hair and skin tone.

    Completely in the canal hearing aids may be for people with mild to moderately servere hearing loss. These hearing aids can have a button that allows you to change settings for different environments. This makes CIC hearing aids more suitable for people who want discreet hearing aids and have the option to manually control them using a button.

    Not everyone has ear canals that are suitable for CIC hearing aids, speak to your hearing healthcare expert for further guidance and advice1.

    itc-na-380x380In the canal hearing aids are individually tailored to sit inside the ear canal. The ITC hearing aids fit the lower third of your external ear and may be slightly visible in the lower part of the ear, as they have a small faceplate as compared to the Invisible in the canal and completely in the canal hearing aids.

    The in the canal hearing aids accommodate large batteries and on-instrument control buttons such as volume and programme button, allowing for easy control and handling1. ITC hearing aids are also easy to insert and remove from the ear.

    While ITC hearing aids are still very discreet, if you are looking for almost complete discretion, it is advised that you look at the completely in the canal and invisible in the canal hearing aid types.
