Most, if not all, brands carry hearing aids that are in the ear (ITE), completely in the canal (CIC), or invisible in the canal (IIC). They offer the most discretion and are virtually invisible when worn. However, these designs are not one-size-fits-all. There are several factors to consider before being fitted with one of these models, such as the size of your ear canal and your degree of hearing loss. Because of their ultra small size, the technology inside may not be enough to treat severe or profound cases of hearing loss. On the other hand, behind-the-ear (BTE) models are capable of fighting all types of hearing loss. Thankfully, you don’t have to sacrifice form for function, because behind-the-ear hearing aids are getting smaller and sleeker. One example is the Styletto Nx hearing aid from Signia.
