Styles of hearing aids we recommend at Pindrop Hearing

Today there are many different styles of hearing aid available. By opting for private care, you can enjoy a far greater choice:

Lyric – Invisible Hearing Aids

Lyric is the first and only extended wear hearing device that is 100% invisible.

Receiver in Canal (RIC)

RIC hearing aids are very discreet, very comfortable and almost invisible from the front or side. The receiver (loud speaker) sits close to the eardrum in the ear canal and provides a natural, clear sound. A thin wire attaches the receiver to a tiny hearing aid behind the ear. These models can contain technical features, such as wireless Bluetooth connectivity.

Invisible in the Canal (IIC)

These modern hearing aids are inserted deep in the ear canal and so are 100% invisible from the outside. You’ll find more information on IIC hearing aids here.

In the Ear (ITE)

These hearing aids fit neatly into the ear, but their extra size allows for technical features, such as directional microphones, which improve speech clarity when there is background noise.

Traditional Behind-the-Ear

Hearing aids usually used for ease of handling and for severe hearing loss.

Completely in the Canal (CIC)

CIC hearing aids fit neatly into the ear canal and are ideal for mild to moderate hearing loss. They are tiny, and their placement in the ear canal allows for natural directional hearing. They are also very discreet and comfortable.
