What are invisible hearing aids?
Invisible hearing aids are devices that sit inside your ear canal and amplify sound. They are almost impossible to see when in place.
The latest invisible hearing aids use cutting-edge digital technology. They offer many of the benefits expected of modern hearing aids of a larger size. These hearing aids are virtually invisible to others and are custom-made to fit the exact dimensions of your ears.
Types of invisible hearing aids
Although not invisible, CIC (completely in canal) hearing aids are still inconspicuous. They are custom-made to fit your ear in a colour that matches your skin tone and hair colour. This might be a good option if your ear canals are too large or too small to keep the invisible hearing aids in place.
Benefits of invisible hearing aids
If your ability to perceive sound is not what it used to be, invisible in the ear hearing aids can offer you help without anyone noticing your increased ability to hear the world around you. Custom-made, invisible aids are uniquely made to fit your ears, and provide a supremely comfortable way to hear the world around you.
Invisible hearing aids can pick up sounds in a more natural way. In fact, many are designed to mimic the way sound resonates inside your ears. This makes it easier for you to understand the direction of sounds around you.
Invisible aids give you the ability to hold your phone up to your ear without the fear of any annoying whistling sounds (otherwise known as feedback).
Invisible hearing aids are used by people of all ages. They have the advantage of automatic volume controls which can adapt to any environment. They have the ability to distinguish speech and background noise. The result is that you’ll never have to miss out on conversations ever again. As well as eliminating feedback, they can also soften the impact of sudden loud noises.
Invisible hearing aids can also be more stable than their in the ear counterparts. This is because the latter can move slightly inside the ear, which in turn may influence their performance. By contrast, the invisible style sits securely in place in the bony part of the ear canal. So they tend to work extremely well and last a long time.
