Invisible hearing aid types

Hearing aids worn in the ear canal are basically customized hearing aids, and the hidden hearing aids are also a kind of customized hearing aids. Common invisible hearing aids are IIC, CIC and ITC types. AUSTAR's instant fit CIC is the cheapest invisible hearing aid. Invisible hearing aid types pictures:

Invisible hearing aid types

Types of invisible hearing aids

Hearing aids come in different sizes, colours and styles. Some hearing aids are bigger, others more discreet and some virtually invisible. The most widespread types of hearing aids are behind the ear and in the ear hearing aids. Although very small, these hearing aids are still visible from a certain angle or during a face-to-face conversation. That is why many people with a hearing impairment feel uncomfortable wearing them and want a device that is as discreet or hidden as possible.

In some cases, the problem can be solved surgically with the use of an implant, but this is a more complicated and expensive procedure. In order to make things simpler, hearing aid manufacturers have designed several specific types of devices, which are considered to be virtually too small to see – invisible in the canal, completely in the canal, in the canal and half shell.

Invisible in the canal hearing aids

Invisible in the canal hearing aids

This hearing aid type is practically invisible and the smallest possible you can find on the market. Each one is individually designed to fit in the ear of the specific user and although it can be very challenging to pack it with the latest innovations due to its small size, the technology is constantly developing and improving. However, such hearing aid types support mild to moderate hearing loss and do not fit in every ear canal. Other challenges include:

  • difficult manipulation of functions due to the tiny size
  • option for manual volume control is rarely available
  • not suitable for children due to growth of the ear canal
  • greater chance of feedback as the speaker and microphone are very close to each other
  • can be easily damaged by moisture and earwax
  • a ‘blocked-up’ sensation for some users
  • not suitable for people with frequent ear infections
  • short battery life

Completely in the canal hearing aids

The completely in the canal hearing aids are also custom fit for the individual ear and invisible to those around the wearer. Similarly to the IIC, a CIC is placed deep into the ear canal and closely imitates the normal hearing process because on one hand the speaker is near the eardrum and can improve the sound perception and on the other the microphone, sitting in the ear canal, may offer a better reception of the signal. A great choice at a very competitive price is the Instant fit CIC hearing aids, which is very discreet and features an adjustable volume and a digital sound technology for a crystal clear sound. If you are looking for the best/cheapest invisible hearing aid, then instant fit CIC hearing aid is your best choice.

It should be noted though that the completely in the canal hearing aids suffer the same disadvantages as the IIC.

In the canal hearing aids

In the canal hearing aids are another type of very small and hidden hearing aid. They are slightly smaller than the ITE but bigger than CIC devices. They are not visible from the front as they go in the entrance of the ear. Usually, people that do not qualify for the CIC are attracted to in the canal hearing aids as next in size. In the canal hearing aids are recommended for mild to moderate hearing loss. They offer natural reception of sound as the microphone is placed inside the ear canal. However, they still have the same drawbacks as the CIC hearing aids due to their small size and location.

Half shell hearing aid

The half shell hearing aid is a custom made hearing aid smaller than full shell ITE hearing aids as the name suggests. It sits in the lower part of the bowl shaped area of the outer ear. This type of hearing aid is suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss. It’s slightly bigger size allows easier manipulation and control and fits most ears. Still, it is susceptible to earwax and moisture and can easily be damaged by either. Its battery life is shorter than that of behind the ear hearing aids and in the ear hearing aids.

Which hearing aid is best?

Which is the best hearing aids for tinnitus, seniors and severe hearing loss? How to choose the best hearing aids? Today, the hearing aid market is very complex, constantly changing and offering an immense variety of hearing aids and assistive listening devices. When you literally have too many options to choose from, it can be very easy to become confused and frustrated over the decision you have to make. However, this diversity has also made a very positive impact on the hearing aid industry.

Which hearing aid is best

The leading hearing aid manufacturers are now in positive competition with each other, resulting in greater levels of customer satisfaction and modern high tech devices that are able to suit the needs of a much greater number of people. Of course, the race for the most innovative device also leads to one very important question, which every hearing aid user should ask themselves. The question is easy – “Which Hearing Aid Is Best?” The answer can be a bit complex and tricky. “Best” has to imply best for the individual and that is where the problem arises. Such as: which hearing aid is best for tinnitus? which hearing aid is best for severe hearing loss? which hearing aid is best for music? The personal needs of each person are as varied as the lifestyle that they lead and this is compounded by the degree and nature of their hearing loss. Faced with such variables, the argument must focus strongly on “best” having a high correlation with “flexible”.

What about hearing aids' style or type? Is there a best format amongst the range of behind-the-ear, in-the-ear, in the canal, bone anchored, etc. devices? The short answer is “No”. The best format is once again the system that will be most suitable for the individual. However, there are some certain facts that can help the user make a better choice. If the best format was to include reliability as one of its criteria, then we can state that there should be a leaning away from in-the-ear products and an emphasis on behind-the-ear solutions.

Without a doubt the best hearing aid is the one that works for you and gives back your world of communication. It is advisable to consult with a hearing aid specialist before you make your final choice.

Dry aid box or kit is the best for hearing aid cleaning

Reasonable use of hearing aid cleaning wipes, solution and brush is the best way to clean hearing aids. The hearing aid cleaning kit inclue wipes/solution/brush etc.

Hearing Aid Cleaning Best Practices

Hearing aids should be cleaned when the device is on or held over a soft level surface. Bear in mind these devices include a number of sensitive electrical components and you are always better off taking longer due to taking extra care. To reduce the time required to clean in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids, in particular, we strongly recommend the use of a ‘dry aid box’ or hearing aid kit. A dry box is designed to remove moisture and to dry earwax. Some of these dry aid boxes run on mains and even have built-in mechanisms to help eliminate germs. Dry boxes also provide a safe place in which to store the hearing aids overnight.

Hearing Aid Cleaning:

The most important part of maintenance is the prevention of possible problems which involves daily cleaning and inspection. Hearing aid components should last at least 4-5 years provided they are kept clean and all the various parts in working order. Daily cleaning and inspection is essential in ensuring their extended durability. Hearing aid cleaning can be done using a number of tools. Small brushes and/or wax remover tools are among the most popular. Hearing aid brush is used to gently brush over the entire surface of the shell (outer housing) of the device, while the wax tool is used on in-the-ear hearing aids to remove more persistent wax. If a thin-tubing fitting is used, a cleaning wire is recommended to be threaded through the tubing to ensure the removal of wax or moisture. If earmolds are used, the earmold and tubing can be removed from the hearing aid and cleaned in warm water – an air puffer is then a useful tool to use to ensure all moisture is cleared before the tubing is re-attached to the hearing aid. External dirt can also be removed with the use of antibacterial/anti-fungal wipes.

Why should hearing aids be cleaned?

Hearing aids are super-sophisticated devices that help the hard of hearing manage their hearing loss. To provide the required amplification level of sound, the device needs to be in working order and clean from wax and any other accumulated debris, such as dead skin cells. Wax that has accumulated on the hearing aid can cause intermittent faults or a complete blockage of sound. Most electrical devices, which includes hearing aids, can also be affected by moisture build-up on or around the components. Wax, together with the humid conditions that exist in the ear canal, unfortunately, create the perfect environment for the build-up of moisture on the hearing aid.

Do You Do Hearing Aids For Seniors?

Do You Do Hearing Aids For Seniors? Hearing aid for senior citizens, hearing aid for 80 year-old and hearing aids for seniors on medicare.

Hearing loss and the need for hearing aids is something that many of us associate with old age (see age related hearing loss). But what do we mean by old age? It is interesting to note that we also associate the need for reading glasses with getting older but do we see them in the same light? In reality, the development of mild to moderate high frequency hearing loss affects almost exactly the same group of people that develop the need for reading glasses; it is simply a factor of growing older.

Hearing Aids For Seniors

If one were asked to describe our experiences of hearing aid wearers, most would picture someone in their 70's or 80's or older and usually someone who has particularly noticeable hearing loss. Some of course would picture a child or young adult they know as, clearly, hearing loss is not solely an age related issue; thankfully, however, these cases are in the minority.

If we were asked to describe our experiences of reading glasses wearers, most would picture someone in their 50's or 60's perhaps – not the same age as hearing aid wearers. Why is that the case?
Mostly, this is because it is true – if a need for reading glasses is established it is normally something that is pretty quickly acted upon and whilst still perceived as a ‘sign of ageing’ it does not carry the same degree of ageing as a hearing aid might. This ageing label is self-fulfilling in a sense, ‘I won't get hearing help because it will ‘age’ me more than glasses do’ – therefore those that do eventually obtain some help are older and re-enforce the stereotype.

It is something I have raised before but one does wonder whether by missing out on conversation, replying inappropriately to a misheard question or withdrawing from social situations is more ‘age' labelling than the issue of addressing it in the first instance.

In any event, the need for hearing aids as opposed to the process of obtaining one is as common as the need for reading glasses and affects broadly the same group of people. Yet the number of people seeking hearing aid help in comparison to visual help is tiny – driven almost entirely by the undesirable ‘ageing’ label they seem to attract.

So, when I am asked whether we have hearing aids for the elderly, of course my answer is yes, although I often back this up by saying that we also offer hearing aids for those that need them and most of them are not what one would typically define as ‘seniors’( older adults /seniors/elderly).

how-to-choose-a-tv-hearing-aid-for-the-hearing-loss

How to choose a TV hearing aid for the hearing loss?

How to choose a TV hearing aid for the hearing loss? TV listening devices for hearing impaired reviews, device to help elderly hear tv. Many people that suffer from hearing loss comment on problems hearing the television. This is traditionally tackled by simply turning up the volume; which of course helps but can cause many a cross word with others in the household (or sometimes with those in adjoining households!).

hearing loss

This is mostly due to a high frequency hearing loss (by far the most common type and frequently linked with age). This type of loss leads to challenges when trying to pick up the consonants in words, particularly the letters S, T, H, F, M, N etc. It is even more difficult for women’s and small children’s voices which have a higher frequency form overall.

As a consequence, changing the overall volume does help with these issues but also increases the volume of sounds unnecessarily; resulting in reaching for the remote every time a dramatic moment is emphasised by music.

How to choose a TV hearing aid for the hearing loss?

TV assistive listening devices

These clever devices are designed to provide a personal volume and tone setting for the individual, without affecting volume levels for the rest of the audience (or neighbours!). They usually take the form of a specialist set of headphones which operate wirelessly through infra-red or radio transmission. As they utilise the audio output from the scart connection, they do not interfere with the standard volume and tone settings for the TV and as such allow others to set these at a more comfortable level. These assistive listening devices have been historically popular for two main reasons, they have been much more affordable than the second alternative below and are only used for the purposes of TV viewing in the home and as such, attract less attention.

Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are designed to provide personal levels of volume or amplification with specific focus on certain frequencies; they offer much greater flexibility in this regard than TV Listeners and have several additional benefits. Firstly, they allow for communication from others whilst watching TV and provide or more ‘rounded’ sound picture as external noise sources are picked up; such as a doorbell, a telephone ring (or a smoke alarm!!). Secondly, they can be used to benefit in a far greater number of circumstances than is the case for TV Listeners extending to a variety of social circumstances as well as in the work place. As such they represent a far more flexible and broader beneficial option.

As a leading manufacturer of hearing aids in China, AUSTAR has a wide range of hearing aid products, both our Hearing Aids and TV Listeners start from amazingly affordable prices – which means price, at least, is no longer a reason not to try one…
