Most hearing aid styles are created using a custom molding process to fit the unique shape of each patient's ear and ear-canal. Custom shell hearing aids include the ITE (In-The-Ear), ITC (In-The-Canal), CIC (Completely-In-Canal), and IIC (Invisible-In-Canal) styles.
In The Ear hearing aids are very easy to operate even if the user has poor dexterity. The hearing device is housed within a custom-made shell that fits comfortably inside each ear and delivers sound directly to the ear. ITE hearing aids typically use size 13 hearing aid batteries.
In The Canal hearing aids are less noticeable and are very easy to operate, even if the user has poor dexterity. The hearing device is housed within a custom-made shell that fits comfortably inside the canal of each ear and delivers sound directly to the inner ear. ITC hearing aids typically uses size 312 hearing aid batteries.
Completely In the Canal hearing aids can hardly be seen by others. The hearing device is housed in a tiny shell that fits comfortably and completely into each ear canal. The device is removed from the ear canal by pulling a tiny cord. These miniature aids are both powerful and cosmetically appealing. Some features such as manual volume control, are not available because the devices are so small. These hearing aids may be a little difficult to operate especially if the user has poor dexterity. CIC hearing aids typically use size 10 hearing aid batteries.
Invisible hearing aids are called "invisible" for a reason, they rest comfortably in the second bend of your ear canal, where most other hearing aids end. This allows it to use the ear's natural acoustics and anatomy to deliver more precise, natural sound and it is completely undetectable to the outside world. Unlike extended wear deep insertion aids like Lyric or Wow, the IIC can be removed and reinserted daily to promote better hearing health. IIC hearing aids typically use size 10 hearing aid batteries.
