Completely in the canal hearing aids are nearly invisible and offer excellent amplification.
Do you suffer from hearing loss? Are you worried that any hearing aid you get will be highly visible to others? If that sounds familiar, you should know that there are many options out there that offer good sound amplification without the visibility of traditional hearing aid styles. For instance, completely in the canal hearing aids are almost invisible but offer outstanding sound amplification, as well as other benefits.
CIC, or completely in canal, hearing aids are tiny. They’re custom molded to your ear canal, and fit deep within it. This ensures that they’re not visible, providing you with better self-confidence without robbing you of the hearing help you need. With that being said, they offer many other benefits that make completely in the canal hearing aids great choices for a range of different hearing loss sufferers.
For instance, feedback can be a very serious problem for hearing aid wearers speaking on the phone. In the past, removing the hearing aid was the only way around the issue. With CIC hearing aids, the device sits within the ear canal, so it’s farther from the phone, which reduces the potential for feedback.
Another benefit here is the fact that the CIC design ensures that no part of the hearing aid is exposed. This isn’t so much about visibility as it is about wind noise. ITE (in the ear models) stick out from the ear canal, allowing wind to buffet them. This is translated as wind noise to your ear. With CIC models, there’s much less wind noise to worry about.
