Offering Custom-Made In-the-Ear Hearing Aids in Miranda and Hurstville
(Suitable for a mild to a severe hearing loss)
There are 5 types of in-the-ear hearing aids, full shell (ITE), half shell, the canal (ITC), completely in the canal (CIC) and invisible in the canal (IIC). All the in-the-ear hearing aids are custom made to fit a person’s ear canal. They are easy to insert into the ear and can be beneficial if you wear glasses and hats, as they stay out of the way. ITE hearing aids sit comfortably in the visible part of your ear, with no wires or tubes to contend with. ITE’s are usually easier to manage than smaller ITC instruments, as they are bigger and suitable for a larger range of hearing losses. ITE instruments often have a longer battery life, as they use a bigger battery and can be made with a program button and volume control for easy adjustments by the individual.
ITC and CIC hearing aids are built to sit further inside the ear canal, meaning they are less visible than the ITE device. They are suitable for a mild to severe hearing loss. The ITC model can be made with volume control and program button whereas the CIC, due to size, can only fit the program button.
The IIC is the ultimate in discretion if you do not want anyone to know you wear a hearing aid. This style of hearing instrument sits deep in the ear canal making them almost invisible.
