  • Custom-made for you.
  • For mild to moderately severe hearing loss.
  • Completely invisible in most ears.

Invisible-in-canal (IIC) hearing aids are the smallest custom hearing aids available. They are designed and sculptured to fit entirely inside your ear canal and are thus called "invisible" hearing aids. Extraction cords are usually fitted to IIC hearing aids to help insert and remove them from the ear canal.

Deep fitting IIC hearing aids fit in the deep bony portion of your ear canal only millimetres from your eardrum. Because of their location, IIC hearing aids significantly reduce the sensation of hearing your own voice  louder than it really is. This is because unlike the outer portion of the ear, the bony part of the ear canal doesn’t internally vibrate as much when you talk.
