Small hearing aid

Invisible Hearing aids

Most people feel insecure about wearing hearing aids because they don’t want others to know about their hearing problems.

Invisible hearing aids are called “Invisible-In- Canal” (IIC) hearing aids.

Focus Hearing offer different hearing aid brands with a range of technology level to suit everyone's need and budget.

Is IIC Hearing Aids right for me?

IIC hearing aids are not suitable for you ;

- If you are prone to outer ear infections, skin conditions or excessive ear wax production.

-The size and shape of your ear canal may prevent candidacy

- If you have dexterity issues

- Depends on the degree of your hearing loss (IIC doesn't have much power as other styles of hearing aids.)

Not all hearing aid styles work for all hearing losses. It is essential you come in for a consult with our Audiologists.

Benefits of IIC

-Small size and discreteness

- Hearing aid microphone is situated located deep in the ear canal, preserving the natural resonance of the ear canal

- Allows natural sound localization using the abilities of the pinna

-The position of the hearing aids in the ear canal allows the wear of headphones and phones to be held again the ear easily.

Possibly the smallest IIC in the market - Phonak Virto B-titanium

Phonak Virto B-Titanium

Big gains from the mighty miniature

Phonak’s tiny new hearing instrument offers big advantages and opens the door to people who haven’t been able to wear in-the-canal devices.

The key to the Phonak Virto B-Titanium - possibly the smallest IIC on the market - is that its shell is made from titanium, renowned for its strength and durability.

This means the device can be made smaller, giving hope to people whose small ear canals have meant this style of aid has not been an option, while the greater strength also allows more venting to reduce the occlusion effect - your voice echoing when you speak.

On top of that the aid has a more powerful receiver meaning these devices will cater to people with a greater hearing loss.

That’s exciting news for hearing-aid users.

Phonak says the shell now can be as thin as 0.2mm, which is 50% thinner than existing acrylic shells and is more crack-resistant.

On top of this the electronic components are 60% smaller than in existing models resulting in a hearing aid that’s 26% smaller, while the fit rate has jumped a massive 64%.

In summary, it’s discreteness meets versatility and power

•         26% size reduction resulting in a 64% increase in fit rate

•         Bigger venting for better management of occlusion

•         A more powerful receiver to cater for greater hearing loss

If you haven’t been able to wear an in-the-canal hearing aid before, NOW is the time to try again and enjoy listening to the things you always loved.
