Types of hearing aids


Invisible-in-the-canal hearing aids

Invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) hearing aids are fitted very deeply in the ear canal.

Some IIC models stay in your ear for a few months at a time. These can only be removed by your audiologist, who will maintain and clean the hearing aid for you.

There are other models that you can take out of your ear yourself.

Because of their small size, they might have limited features.

Who this is most suitable for

People with mild to moderate hearing loss.

How to get this hearing aid

IIC aids are only available privately.
