What are invisible hearing aids?
There are recent developments in deep fitting canal hearing aids that have allowed hearing aids to come closer to being truly "invisible"; however, these hearing aids do not always fit the mainstream consumer. For consumers who are unable to wear deep fitting canal hearing aids, other hearing aid styles are available that aren't as noticeable when worn. These consist of completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids and miniature open fit behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids that sit snug behind the ear camouflaged by your hair or ear lobe. While they are not "invisible" per se, they are discreet and cosmetically appealing for those seeking that type of hearing aids.
Many hearing aids are also available in varying colors which allows you to match your hearing aids to your skin tone or hair color.
The shape and degree of your hearing loss will determine which styles may work best for you, with smaller models generally suited for less significant losses and larger styles suited for any degree of hearing loss, including severe and profound.
Which hearing aids would work best for your needs to be determined by an audiologist or hearing instrument specialist, after a comprehensive hearing evaluation has been completed. There is often more than one option available for each person.
