Hearing Aids

In this category fall In The Ear (ITE), In the Canal (ITC), Completely In Canal (CIC) and Invisible In Canal (IIC) all of which are made of a cast of your ear and/or ear canal. An empty shell is made from the cast and the electronics is built inside this shell. The size and shape is so individual that there are no two custom made shells alike.

The general advantages of custom made hearing aids are that they fit securely in the ear and are hardly affected by movement or sweat. The smaller version of this category ITC, CIC & IIC can be fitted deep within the ear or ear canal and offer the highest degree of discretion.

They also have a hearing quality advantage, as the microphone is located inside the ear or the ear canal it picks up the sounds in the most natural location which make it sounds more natural. Also the loudspeaker in these models is placed inside the ear canal in close proximity of the eardrum. This improves sound quality, reduces the need of amplification and reduces occlusion effect.
