The invisible in the canal hearing aids, also known as invisible hearing aids are custom made and individually tailored to fit the contours of the wearer’s ear to sit concealed in the ear canal. The IIC hearing aids are our most discreet hearing aids, as they sit far enough in the ear canal, providing the ultimate discretion. A thin plastic pin remains on the IIC hearing aid so that they are easily accessible.
The technology in the IIC hearing aids are similar to the CIC and ITE hearing aids, however, due to the small size of the IIC's, they do not have directional microphones, which are used in other hearing aid styles to enhance some sounds and simultaneously reduce background noise. What makes the IIC's our most discreet hearing aids is that the functional components are wrapped in a tiny shell.
The suitability of IIC’s are largely dependent on the size of the user’s ear canal, depending on the size and shape, this may prevent candidacy. While the IIC hearing aids are popular with people who prefer a more discreet type of hearing aid, the small size means that those with limited dexterity may find these types of hearing aids slightly more difficult to adjust and remove.
The IIC hearing aid type may be helpful for people with mild to severe hearing loss.
