Hearing aids are an extremely common medical device and there's no stigma in wearing them publicly. However, some people prefer to wear invisible or nearly invisible styles of hearing aids, whether to accommodate an active schedule or a professional role that necessitates more discreet equipment. As a result, invisible hearing aid styles are a popular – and effective – trend in today’s hearing aid market.

Small and powerful technology, but custom fit for you

The first step in selecting the right hearing aid style is a thorough assessment from a Beltone hearing care professional, who can evaluate the exact type and degree of hearing loss you're experiencing. This is important information that will help to determine which hearing aid features are best suited to your situation.

You can also try Beltone's online hearing screening to get a general idea of the severity of the hearing loss you're experiencing. 

Your Beltone hearing care professional will also consider your lifestyle demands and your preferences in hearing aid styles. In some cases, the smallest hearing aid styles are not the right choice for a patient and a larger unit will offer the features that an individual needs. Fortunately, the most powerful and high-tech hearing aids are very near invisible, with optional features such as clear tubing and a variety of color choices that can be matched to a wearer's hair or skin tone. 

Opening up your world with invisible hearing aids

Most modern hearing aids are as small and discreet as possible, but two of Beltone’s styles are virtually invisible

  • Beltone's Invisible-in-the-Canal (IIC) style of hearing aids are very small, with careful sculpting (based on a custom impression of the patient’s ear canal) that allow them to sit lower in the canal for a comfortable and discreet fit.
  • In addition, Beltone's Completely-in-Canal (CIC) style hearing aids are similarly custom-crafted to fit snugly in the ear canal with external tubes going behind the ear.

Both the IIC and CIC styles offer superior hearing assistance – and nobody will even know you're wearing them!
