Types of hearing aids

Completely-in-the-canal hearing aids

Completely-in-the-ear canal (CIC) hearing aids fit further into your ear canal than in-the-canal (ITC) aids.

They’re not usually visible unless someone looks closely at your ear. It’s unlikely they’ll have features like a hearing loop setting, because they’re too small to fit the technology.

Who this is most suitable for

People with mild to moderate hearing loss.

They’re not suitable for people who often get ear infections, or find fiddly tasks difficult.

How to get this hearing aid

CIC aids are available privately.
