CIC hearing aids are minute, yet powerful solutions to combat hearing loss.
When it comes to combatting hearing loss, not all solutions are created equal. You want a hearing aid that’s capable of offering the amplification you need, but you also want to ensure that you get a slim, hardly-visible hearing aid. While models that fit behind the ear can be less visible, only CIC hearing aids (completely in the canal) are truly invisible.
With hearing aids, CIC design ensures that you get good amplification with almost no visibility at all. The name really says it all. These models fit completely within your ear canal. That eliminates the potential for self-conscious embarrassment, but it also ensures good sound reproduction. They’re also suitable for hearing loss severities ranging from mild to severe.
Other benefits of CIC hearing aids include reduced echo sensations. These can be bothersome with some other styles. Wind noise is also not a problem, since the hearing aid sits within the ear canal and won’t be buffeted by wind the way external styles can be. Finally, you’ll find that because the hearing aid is in the canal, it’s farther from the receiver on your phone when you use it, which reduces the potential for annoying and painful feedback.
At Pindrop, we can help you determine whether a CIC hearing aid is the right choice for you, or if you’d benefit more from a BTE, ITE or another style of hearing aid. Our audiologists will complete a full assessment of your hearing and then discuss all your options. Call us today at 416-484-4327 to learn more.
