The best ITC hearing aids (products details)

For the 5% of the world’s population experiencing hearing loss, hearing aids offer the potential of not only improving your hearing but your overall quality of life. There are several types of hearing aid and a popular option for people preferring a more discreet hearing device is the in the canal (ITC) hearing aid.

In the canal hearing aid

What makes ITC hearing aids different?

  • Custom fit.  The ITC hearing aid fits in the ear canal. Custom made from impressions taken of your ear canal and the surrounding section of the external ear.
  • Discreet. A little larger than invisible hearing aids, ITC hearing aids are available in several different flesh-toned colors, making them more discreet than an in the ear (ITE) hearing aid.
  • Powerful yet easy to use. The best ITC hearing aids are surprisingly powerful and recommended for people with a mild to severe hearing loss. They are also a good choice for anyone with reduced vision or limited dexterity.
  • Sound quality. With the placement of the ITC hearing aids in the ear and the hearing aid’s surface area, the sound quality should be above average. They are also less likely to work themselves loose when you chew or talk.
