In The Canal (ITC) Hearing Aids: Seamlessly Discreet and Tailored

In The Canal (ITC) hearing aids offer a discreet and personalized auditory solution. Molded to effortlessly fit within your ear canal, they provide a snug and secure placement. While maintaining their inconspicuousness, ITC aids are designed for easier insertion and removal compared to smaller in-canal counterparts.

  • Simplified Handling
  • Secure Fit
  • Discreet Elegance

Functionality of ITC Hearing Aids

ITC hearing aids feature a microphone positioned on their exposed part, capturing sound waves and converting them into electrical signals. These signals are then processed by a microchip and sent to an amplifier, enhancing their strength before being delivered to a loudspeaker, enabling you to hear sound effectively.

Key Considerations:

  • Expanded Power: While slightly larger than Completely In Canal aids, ITCs can accommodate more severe hearing losses due to increased amplification.
  • Bluetooth Capability: Many ITC aids offer Bluetooth features for direct audio streaming from phones*.
  • Size and Comfort: The size of the aid is personalized to the ear’s shape and hearing loss characteristics, ensuring comfort.
  • Discreet Appearance: ITC aids, with no external parts over the ear, can be customized in various colors to blend seamlessly.
  • Amplification Levels: ITC aids offer less amplification compared to Receiver In The Ear or BTE aids, making them suitable for milder losses.
  • Batteries: ITC aids utilize manual battery replacement. For rechargeability, the slightly larger In The Ear (ITE) model may be considered.
  • Wind Noise: ITC models are less prone to wind noise due to their placement inside the ear.
  • Your Audiologist will expertly guide you in selecting the most fitting hearing aid style based on your hearing loss and individual needs.
