In-The-Ear (ITE)

In-the-ear aids are precisely cast to snuggle into the shape of your ear. Some ITE wearers find them easier to handle than smaller hearing aids.

Completely-In-Canal (CIC)

Nearly invisible, bespoke CIC hearing aids completely hidden in your ear canal. They are super small and discreet - only you will know you are wearing them.


Invisible-In-Canal (IIC)

The futuristic Invisible-in-canal aids are your stealth weapon. They are very discreet hiding deep inside the ear. These are nano-aids that you tuck inside the ear canal, with a clear tube that makes it easy to pull out.
