Hearing the news that you require a hearing aid can be hard to process. To many, it feels like the beginning of a completely new chapter in their life.
When we’re told we need glasses, it’s often something we take in our stride. Today, the same can be said of hearing aids; the large, cumbersome devices of yesteryear are long gone. Yet some hesitations still remain when we’re first fitted for a hearing aid. Perhaps because we think it makes us sound – or feel – older than we really want to be.
But times are a-changing, and technology is evolving. Say hello to ‘invisible hearing aids’ – miniature in-ear devices that are so small and discreet that they’re pretty much invisible!
The ultimate in discretion
Fitting into the ear canal, they are tiny devices that make a huge difference. At The Hearing Care Partnership, we custom fit all invisible hearing aids, so they will sit comfortably and deliver the best possible sound quality.
These types of hearing aids are recommended for mild to moderate hearing loss, and your audiologist will be able to recommend one if they’re suited to your needs.
So, what are the top makes and models? Let’s find out…
Phonak hearing aids
Renowned for their impressive selection of hearing aids, Phonak’s smallest ever device has hit the market: the Phonak Virto B-Titanium.
The ultimate in discreet in-ear devices, this hearing aid combines luxury materials with the latest technology, resulting in one of the best invisible hearing aids on the market. Not only will it be individually set up and configured by The Hearing Care Partnership, Phonak also manufactures each individual hearing aid using a custom moulding process, so the fit will be like no other.
Oticon hearing aids
Another big fish in the hearing technology pond, Oticon should be on anyone’s shortlist of brands to consider when choosing a hearing aid. In particular, Oticon’s Alta2 is an invisible hearing aid that really packs a punch. It comes with nano-coating that repels dust and moisture, while its clever electronics let you link to your smartphone and other devices to keep you connected.
