Have you been putting off doing something about your hearing troubles because you don’t want to be seen wearing hearing aids. Rest assured you are not alone. Appearance is one of the most common reasons people don’t get the hearing help they need.
The good news is that modern hearing aids come in a variety of style that render them virtually invisible to the people around you and other devices that don’t look like hearing aids at all. Here are three very popular styles.
Invisible In the Canal Hearing Instruments (IIC)
IIC’s are constructed using miniaturised components and are now the most cosmetically appealing traditional hearing aids available. When correctly fitted the hearing aid is located on or beyond the second bend of the ear canal making it truly invisible to all but the most detailed close-up inspection of the ear canal. IIC hearing aids are available to suit mild to moderate hearing loss and at a variety of price levels.
Receiver-in-the-Canal Hearing Instruments (RIC)
Some people cannot wear Invisible-in-the-Canal hearing aids because of narrow ear canals or a severe hearing loss. For these clients we can often recommend the very discreet RIC style hearing aids. The devices include a tiny case that sits discreetly behind your ear. The sound is transmitted through a practically invisible wire that runs to a “speaker” hidden in the ear canal. This discreet appearance combined with the RIC’s ability to fit almost any hearing loss has made the RIC the most popular hearing aid style in recent years. RIC hearing aids are available at all price levels.
Call today to schedule your appointment at any of our clinics to find an invisible hearing solution to fit your needs.
Ear Bud Style Hearing Aids
Signia has recently released the new Active Pro line of hearing instruments. These devices look very much like traditional wireless ear buds that you might use to listen to music. However, these devices combine the appearance, comfort and convenience with those wireless earbuds with powerful hearing aid technology that can be custom programmed to suit your personal hearing loss and needs. Nobody will know you are wearing aids unless you decide to tell them.
