Behind-the-Ear Hearing Aids

If the thought of wearing traditional behind the ear devices is holding you back from getting started with your new hearing aid journey, then Completely-In-the-Canal hearing aids (CIC) may be an ideal solution for people with moderate hearing loss.
As the name suggests, CIC hearing aids are worn completely in your ear canal and provide a unique option for those who want to wear their assistance more discretely.

CICs come with an array of features that improve sound quality, adjustability and personalisation which we will discuss soon. These sleek devices fit snugly inside the opening of your ear canal so you can enjoy wearing them without worrying about extra parts or bulges on either side; they are easy to remove as well (with just a small wire).

Advantages of Behind the Ear Hearing Aids

The behind-the-ear hearing aid style is one of the most common styles prescribed across the world. The versatility of these devices fit all types of hearing loss from mild to profound and come in many different shapes and sizes.

These devices are very reliable and typically lower maintenance than others given the hearing aid sits behind the ear and the sound is transferred through a tube into the ear canal.

 Although one of the larger styles of hearing aids, there are many newer models that come in smaller sizes with slim tubing and can be very discreet.

If you are looking for a reliable option with minimal maintenance then this may be the device for you. If you would like a FREE no-obligation appointment with one of our hearing care professionals to discuss further then click below.
