Completely-In-The-Canal (CIC) Hearing Aids
Compact and discreet, CIC hearing aids are only a little bigger than aids of the IIC type. A CIC aid sits entirely in the outer portion of the ear canal, which means that it’s only visible to someone looking directly into the wearer’s ear.
CIC hearing aids work by amplifying sounds and directing them down the ear canal to the eardrum. Please contact a hearing professional at East Tennessee Audiology in Lenoir City, TN, today for more information on how this type of hearing aid may help you.
CIC Hearing Aid Advantages
The CIC hearing aid unites high aesthetic appeal with excellent sound quality. The almost invisible hearing aid leaves the outer ear free so that it can collect sounds and detect their directionality naturally.
A CIC hearing aid allows the wearer to use a phone or wear headgear unimpaired, making daily function easy.
Who Can Benefit from CIC Hearing Aids?
CIC hearing aids are ideal for people suffering from mild-to-moderate hearing loss. These devices are custom-fit to individual ear canal size and shape for maximum comfort.
However, people suffering from severe hearing loss will probably find a CIC aid insufficient, because its small size limits its processing and amplifying power. The instrument’s tiny batteries are only powerful enough to supply energy for basic functions.
Additionally, CIC users will need to change the hearing aid battery frequently.
