Invisible hearing aids can be beneficial for people of all ages who suffer from hearing loss. The best age for invisible hearing aids is usually determined by the severity of the person’s impairment.

What to Consider When Buying Invisible Hearing Aid Devices?

Invisible hearing aids are a new type of hearing aid that is designed to be as inconspicuous as possible. These devices have been marketed as the best way to hide your hearing loss.

Invisible hearing aid or completely in the canal (CIC) hearing aids are designed to be as inconspicious as possible so no-one has to know you are wearing them.

There are many pros and cons to invisible hearing aids, but the biggest pro is that they are less noticeable than traditional hearing aids. However, there are some cons such as the lack of features and sound quality.

Who can’t have invisible hearing aids?

There are so limitations to invisible hearing aids. Namely, the tiny size of the device that many more sophisticated noise reducing technology, such as directiona microphones, cannot be fitted onto the hearing device. This means the ability to hear better in background noise situations may be reduced compared to a more traditional hearing aid.

For someone with normal to near normal low frequency hearing, blocking up your entire ear canal with a hearing device can make your own voice sound unnatural and ‘echoey’. This phenomenon is what Audiologists call “occlusion” and is one of the main reasons a lot of people reject their hearing aids.

For those with good low pitch hearing, a more open fitting type hearing aid, such as a “receiver in the canal” device may be more comfortable.

Older Australians with manipulation difficulties or arthritis may find it difficult to insert invisible hearing aids due to their very small size. Your audiologist is the best person to advise on the most suitable hearing device for seniors.
