What are invisible hearing aids?
Hearing aids have come a long way since the first bulky behind-the-ear models from the 1960s. Today’s small hearing aids are comfortable and discreet, and they vary in size, color, special features, and the way they fit in your ears. Hearing aids used to be powered by analog technology, but just like the rest of the world, they have gone digital. The latest generation of invisible hearing aids are now smarter and smaller than ever, allowing you to hear more of the sounds around you, with the device being hardly noticeable in or around your ear. Invisible hearing aids are hardly detectable by others, but you will surely notice the difference.
Invisible hearing aids inside the ear are custom-made to fit the shape of your ear. A custom hearing device is created using an earmold, which your hearing care professional will make from your ear. There are a variety of in-the-ear invisible hearing aids. Invisible-in-Canal (IIC) is the smallest, custom product available. IIC invisible hearing aids sit deep inside the ear canal, so it’s practically undetectable to everyone around you. IIC invisible hearing aids are the perfect solution for those who want a discreet hearing aid and have mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
If you have severe hearing loss, there are still many options to get a discreet hearing solution. By examining your unique requirements, you and your hearing care professional can determine the best fit for your needs. There’s a hearing aid out there for everyone.
