CIC Hearing Aids

What are CIC Hearing Aids?

Do you have trouble hearing your friends or family? Well, have no fear because CIC hearing aids are here! These little devices can make a big difference in your ability to hear the world around you. CIC stands for completely-in-canal, which means that the hearing aid is custom-made to fit inside your ear canal. This makes it practically invisible to others, so you don’t have to worry about anyone noticing that you’re wearing a hearing aid.


How CIC Hearing Aids Work

But how do these little devices actually work? Well, CIC hearing aids have tiny microphones that pick up sound waves and convert them into electrical signals. These signals are then amplified and sent to a tiny speaker, which delivers the sound directly into your ear canal.

But do they really work? Yes, they do! In fact, a study conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information found that CIC hearing aids provide significant improvement in speech recognition in noisy environments. Not only that, but CIC hearing aids also come with a number of other benefits. Because they fit snugly in your ear canal, they don’t pick up as much wind noise as other types of hearing aids. They also don’t interfere with glasses or hats, which can be a problem with other hearing aids.


How to Manage Hearing Loss

So, if you’re struggling with hearing loss and want to improve your ability to hear the world around you, consider trying out a CIC hearing aid. They’re small, discreet, and effective, and can make a big difference in your quality of life. Provided below, are links to three of our most popular CIC type hearing aids.
