Completely in The Canal (CIC) Hearing Aids

Completely in the Canal (CIC) hearing aids are very small devices that do just as their name suggests and sit completely within your ear canal. This means that they are almost completely invisible to the outside world unless someone were to look directly inside your ear.

They are another example of a custom fit hearing aid, as they are made to fit from a mold that is taken of your ear canal. Not only does this means that they will not move around inside your ear, but that they are also very delightful.

The Differences

One of the other main advantages of Completely in the Canal (CIC) hearing aids, apart from them being nearly invisible to others, is that they still allow most of your ear to continue performing its natural function. Your outer ear is still able to funnel sounds down towards your ear canal and then your hearing aid simply processes and amplifies these sounds before they are sent down your ear canal to your tympan membrane. This means that most people discover that they still hear a very natural sound and benefit from increased directionality detection.
