Wireless hearing aids offer those suffering from hearing loss the chance to regain their freedom.
Once upon a time, hearing aids were large, bulky things that had to be connected to the battery with wires. They were very visible, uncomfortable and difficult to wear. Thankfully, the situation has changed today. Wireless hearing aids have become the norm in the industry, and you have a very wide range of options from which to choose.
ITE, or in the ear, hearing aids are perhaps the most commonly used models on the market today, and they’re completely wireless. They offer good sound production, but are pretty visible, so they might not be the best choice for those who need something a little less conspicuous.
For anyone who needs less visible wireless hearing aids, CIC, or completely in the canal, models can provide the benefits required. These sit directly in the ear canal and are barely visible. Of course, there are also IIC, or invisible in the canal, hearing aids. These sit deep in the ear and cannot be seen even if someone is standing right next to you.
Many other options exist when it comes to wireless hearing aids, from CIC to CROS/BICROS systems and behind the ear models. None of them are wired, and many of them can be customized to offer the ideal fit for comfort.
The best choice is to work with a professional audiologist to determine your hearing loss severity, and then compare hearing aids to find the best solution.
