Styles of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids come in various styles, each designed to suit different needs and preferences. Here’s a comprehensive overview of the different styles, types, and technology options available to help you become more familiar before your visit to us.
Completely in Canal (CIC) Hearing Aids
A Completely in Canal (CIC) hearing aid is the second smallest style of hearing aids and is especially suitable if you have a mild to moderate hearing loss. It is a custom made shell that contains all the electronic components.
The shell is placed deeply in the ear canal, making the hearing aid almost invisible. A CIC therefore has a big aesthetic advantage: No one be able to actually see that you are wearing a hearing aid.
For easy everyday removal, the CIC has a small cord attached to the outside. A CIC model works fully automatically.
At Galway & O’Neill Hearing Care we provide hearing aids from leading manufacturers such as Oticon, Phonak and Widex.
