IIC Hearing Aids

    Invisible-In-The-Canal (IIC)

    These hearing aids are the tiniest and most discreet. Custom-fitted, they are inserted deep into the ear canal, rendering them entirely invisible when worn. Daily removal is possible with a small plastic string, promoting ear health. Due to their deep positioning, IICs may not be suitable for everyone and are recommended for mild to moderate hearing loss.

      Completely-In-Canal (CIC)

      Similar to IICs, these devices sit directly within the ear canal. Only a small portion is visible externally, and the style remains inconspicuous compared to larger alternatives. CIC aids are ideal for those who prefer not to be mindful of their hearing aids. They offer advantages beyond aesthetics, especially for active individuals who can comfortably wear them under helmets or headbands. CIC devices harness the natural ear curve for clear direction and amplification with minimal wind interference.

        In-The-Canal (ITC)

        Comfortable and easy to use, ITC hearing aids reside in the lower section of the outer ear bowl. They accommodate a wider range of hearing losses and possess longer battery life compared to IIC and CIC styles. The larger size allows for additional features, such as directional microphones for improved noise comprehension and manual controls.

          In-The-Ear (ITE)

          As the largest custom-fit style, ITE hearing aids are molded to fit within a plastic case that sits snugly in the outer ear portion. Ample space permits manual controls and suits mild to severe hearing loss.

            Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

            RIC devices house their electronics in a casing positioned behind the ear, resembling BTE devices. The distinction lies in the transmission of sound from the case to a small speaker within the ear canal.

              Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

              Hearing aids positioned behind the ear (BTE) rest externally, behind the external ear. Equipped with advanced features, BTE aids are the most potent type available. They offer a wide array of features and accommodate a durable battery, alleviating concerns about power loss. BTE devices are optimal for severe or profound hearing loss, catering to various age groups from children to older adults.

              Adjusting to Your Hearing Aids

              Hearing loss affects our auditory perception and distorts speech.

              Merely amplifying sounds that the brain interprets as distorted doesn't entirely solve the hearing challenge. Initially, comprehending what you hear might be difficult as your brain adjusts to the amplified sounds via your hearing aid. Patience is essential as your brain adapts to this enhanced sound access. This adjustment involves a learning process to fully benefit from your hearing aids. Much like learning a new language, your brain needs to establish new neural patterns.

              Despite the challenges, the effort invested in adapting to hearing aids is worthwhile. If you're seeking a hearing aid, consult with us! We provide fitting services for major brands such as Starkey, Resound, Oticon, Signia, and Unitron, with a primary focus on Phonak and Widex.
