Invisible Hearing Aids: No One Will Know You’re Wearing Them

Jul 14, 2017 Invisible Hearing Aids: No One Will Know You’re Wearing Them

Many people think that wearing a hearing aid will make them look old, and would like their hearing aids to be as discreet as possible. For this reason, “invisible” hearing aids that fit completely in the ear canal are a very popular option.

When talking to current and prospective hearing aid wearers, it quickly becomes apparent that cosmetic appearance is often a concern. Many people think that wearing a hearing aid will make them look old, and would like their hearing aids to be as discreet as possible. For this reason, “invisible”hearing aids that fit completely in the ear canal tend to be a very popular option.

Hearing Aids Not Visible From the Front, Side, or Back

The smallest regular-use hearing aids are appropriately named Invisible-In-Canal, or IIC, style. To manufacture these instruments, a custom impression is cast of the ear canal. The devices are designed to sit well within the ear canal where they are not visible from the front, side, or back.

Easy Removal

IIC hearing aids have a very small removal line that sits just at the entrance to the ear canal for easy removal. These hearing aids can be taken in and out as needed for regular daily use, similar to larger custom and behind-the-ear style hearing aids. This allows wearers to have the flexibility to insert or remove the hearing aids anytime they want or need.

Longer-Wear Invisible Hearing Aids

Other types of invisible hearing aids are placed and removed by a professional for extended wearing times of 1 to 2 months. However, many people experience discomfort in the ear canal from the long term use and may feel frustrated by the need for professional placement and removal of the hearing aids.

Greater Satisfaction With IIC Hearing Aids

With IIC hearing aids, the user is able to have control over their use and wear of the devices, often leading to higher rates of satisfaction.

Smaller, Lighter, More Discreet

As technology has improved over the past several years, hearing aids have become smaller, lighter and more discreet than ever before. Don’t let cosmetic concerns stand in your way of improving your hearing!
