In-the-canal hearing aids are some of the most advanced hearing aids Pindrop Toronto offers.
Just because you suffer from hearing loss doesn’t mean you necessarily have to suffer through wearing large, bulky and highly conspicuous over-the-ear hearing aids. In fact, thanks to new advances in digital hearing technologies, you can get a pair of in-the-canal hearing aids that are virtually undetectable without sacrificing power or performance.
The idea of an “in canal” hearing aid does just want it says on the tin: instead of a large, bulky hearing aid that sits over the ear and is connected to an earbud via thin, flexible tubing or a hearing aid that fills the entirety of your outer and middle ear, an in-the-canal hearing aid tucks away safely and discreetly within your ear canal, out of sight from all but the most diligent observers.
Traditionally, in-the-canal hearing aids were less powerful than over-the-ear hearing aids due to the fact that there simply wasn’t enough room in these smaller, more compact hearing aids for the most powerful audio amplification technology. However, as these technologies have both become more powerful and take up less space overall, in-canal hearing aids have become robust enough to accommodate moderate to even severe hearing loss. While those suffering with profound hearing impairment are still best served with an over-the-ear hearing aid, these in-canal hearing aids are appropriate for many patients. This has improved the quality of life for countless individuals that have had to deal with their own personal hearing loss, and has helped reduce or even completely eliminate the sadness and isolation that is all too commonly associated with the heartbreak and tragedy of hearing impairment.
