Hearing with Invisible Hearing Devices

January 15, 2021

People with hearing loss often have trouble admitting this fact to the world and thus prefer to wear discreet hearing aids, thus the recent years have seen a rise in popularity of invisible hearing aids.

Invisible hearing aids are compact as well as highly equipped with advanced features, thanks to the latest technological developments that enable these tiny hearing devices to function as efficiently as any other style of hearing devices.

Each invisible hearing device is molded as per the customer’s specific needs and is fitted deep down within the ear canal. Users can take the help of a handy little stick that is attached to the hearing aid in order to assist with insertion as well as removal of the device. Compared to other hearing devices, invisible hearing aids are situated closer to the eardrums and thus need less power while producing outstanding clarity and quality of sound. Several additional features such as voice recognition, feedback cancellation, as well as noise reduction can enable the users to have an enhanced hearing experience.

Getting fitted for invisible hearing aids do not require any invasive procedure and obtaining them is as simple as getting any other hearing device. All you need is a simple hearing test, after which the hearing specialist can interpret your test results to determine your level of hearing loss. They will then go over your hearing aid options with you and see whether invisible hearing aids are suitable for your specific needs.

It is important to note that invisible hearing aids are not recommended for everyone. Here are four specific reasons why invisible hearing aids may be unsuitable for you:

  • Some people do not feel comfortable inserting or removing a hearing device deep into their ears since this can lead to a feeling of being plugged up, thus invisible hearing devices are not suited for those who have this sort of discomfiture.
  • For people with profound hearing loss, invisible hearing aids may not amplify the sounds to the required level and are thus unsuitable for those with high levels of hearing loss.
  • Every person is unique and not all ear shapes are the same. Some people’s ear canal may be too small and invisible hearing devices may not fit properly in small ears.
  • People with concerns about hearing aid costs may be turned off by the steep price of invisible hearing aids since they are more expensive than other forms of hearing devices since they require high levels of complicated technology to manufacture them.

Even though invisible hearing aids are appealing for their discreet, sleek looks, it is important to keep an open mind and realize that other styles of hearing devices work just as well, if not better than invisible hearing aids. Talk to your hearing specialist to see which hearing device is best suited for your hearing needs.
