in Ear hearing aids
Custom made digital hearingaids
An in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid is a type of hearing device designed to fit partially or completely within the ear canal and outer ear. These hearing aids are custom-made to suit the individual’s ear shape and size, ensuring a comfortable and discreet fit. They are particularly beneficial for individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss. There are different types of in-ear hearing aids, and they can vary in size and features.
In-the-ear hearing aids (iTE)
In-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids: These are the largest custom hearing aids as they fill the bowl of the ear making them more visible than other custom aids. The larger size makes them more suitable for severe hearing losses.
In-the-ear hearing aids come with various features and functionalities, such as volume control, directional microphones, noise reduction, and Bluetooth connectivity, allowing them to connect wirelessly to other devices like smartphones or TVs.
In-the-canal hearing aids (ITC)
In-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids: These fit partly in the ear canal, with a small portion visible in the outer ear. They are less visible than some larger hearing aids but may be more noticeable compared to completely-in-the-canal (CIC) models.
Completely-in-canal Hearing Aids (cIC)
Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids: These are the smallest type of in-the-ear hearing aids and fit entirely within the ear canal, making them nearly invisible when worn.
Invisible-in-canal Hearing Aids (IIC)
Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aids: These are even smaller than CIC hearing aids and sit deeper within the ear canal, making them virtually invisible when worn.
It is important to note that the suitability of an in-the-ear hearing aid depends on the individual’s hearing loss, ear anatomy, and lifestyle preferences. Before getting a hearing aid, it is crucial to undergo a thorough hearing assessment by an audiologist who can help determine the most appropriate hearing aid style for your specific needs.
