Invisible (IIC)

IIC Hearing Aids (Invisible In Canal)

Do you suffer from age-related hearing loss but have resisted getting hearing aids because you think they appear unsightly or uncomfortable? One of your options is to have an Invisible in the Canal (IIC) hearing aid installed.

The newest and smallest hearing instruments available, these fit deep inside your ear canal so they’re practically invisible. IIC instruments will give you the benefit of specialised hearing assistance as well as being invisible and unobtrusive. Suited for mild to moderate hearing loss, IIC hearing aids deliver many benefits beyond being almost impossible to see.

How do Invisible Hearing Aids Work?

Invisible hearing aids are embedded deep in the ear canal nearer the ear drum and the outer ear naturally directs sound towards the hearing aid. This improves directionality and helps with your ability to know where sounds are coming from. Despite the tiny size of this hearing aid, it still can be manufactured with the highest level of digital technology.

Benefits of Invisible (IIC) Hearing Aids

Latest Technology

For decades, In The Canal (ITC) hearing aids were considered as the benchmark for unobtrusive hearing aid technology. However, now you can benefit from the latest research which has allowed IIC Invisible hearing aids to be embedded deep in the ear canal nearer the ear drum. Some of the more advanced IIC models can be operated using a smartphone app, giving you touch screen control of the device.


Because the IIC hearing aid is made to fit deep in the ear canal, it becomes almost invisible to the eye. Currently the smallest version of hearing aid, it is designed to be positioned in the ear canal, making it virtually undetectable.

Custom made comfort

IIC hearing aids are custom made to fit snugly into your ear, allowing for comfort and ease of use. The technology is designed to use the outer ear to direct sounds to the inner ear giving you a more natural sound and comfort level. It also comes with a small extension cord attached to allow easy removal at night, when showering and to charge the battery.

How do I get an Invisible Hearing Aid from Hearing Loss Specialists?

While Invisible Hearing Aids are high performance, they aren’t yet powerful enough to cater for those with more severe hearing loss, so they are recommended for mild to moderate loss. An assessment is required by one of our hearing aid specialists to determine whether they are suitable for your type of hearing loss.

What Are the Key Advantages of invisible-in-Canal Hearing Aids?

The first feature that is worth discussing in a little more detail is the fact that these hearing aids sit deep within the ear canal. They are custom-fit for each individual that opts to secure them, which means that they deliver exceptional comfort standards. Many users forget that they have them in their ear canal and the additional aesthetic benefit is one that allows you to continue with your life without drawing attention to your hearing impairment.

Invisible-in-canal hearing aids deliver a more natural sound profile as a result of their proximity to the eardrum. There is a close interaction between the device and the stereocilia in the inner ear, which means that sound waves are transmitted more naturally.

One of the key benefits that apply to many modern hearing devices is that they can be paired via Bluetooth to smart devices and remote controls. Given that IIC devices sit within the ear, it is necessary to make all adjustments from an external source. This affords the wearer absolute discretion when they need to adjust settings.

Given that these devices do not sit on the outer ear, this means that it can perform its function as normal and direct soundwaves into the ear canal unobstructed. Furthermore, those that wish to use a phone without having to adjust the position to hear properly will be pleased to learn that with IIC rechargeable hearing aids this is a possibility. Finally, there are no issues to do with wind noise, since the device is safely out of reach. If you are shopping for discreet hearing devices, be sure to also take a look at our completely-in-canal (CIC) hearing devices.
