Completely-in-the-canal (CIC) Hearing Aids
Completely in the canal (CIC) hearing aids are virtually invisible, making them an appealing option for people who want to enjoy better hearing without the stress or worry of wearing visible hearing aids. For many people, wearing a hearing aid can make them feel self-conscious, as it makes it possible for everyone to see that they have problems with their hearing; these discreet hearing aids eliminate any anxiety or worry related to the stigma attached to wearing a hearing aid.
Completely in the canal hearing aids are suitable for people with mild or moderate levels of hearing loss; they are ideal for those who want to enjoy better hearing without anyone being able to see the hearing aid, as the entire device is located within the ear canal. Unlike BTE hearing aids, the CIC hearing aid is a single component with no wires.
These small hearing aids are custom-designed and this ensures that they fit properly; like other types of hearing aid, it is very important that CIC aids are fitted by a qualified audiologist to ensure that they work properly and they are comfortable to wear.
In some cases, it may not be possible to have CIC hearing aids; this may be the case if there is insufficient space in the ear canal to house the hearing aid; in this case, it may be advisable to go for an in the canal (ITC) or in the ear (ITE) hearing aid.
Completely in the canal hearing aids are not available on the NHS and most be paid for privately; the fees vary, according to the manufacturer, but typically, you can expect to pay around £1,000-£2,000.
