Completely-in-the canal Hearing Aids
CICs fit deep inside your ear canal so that they’re practically invisible. Benefits include cosmetic appeal, reduced feedback and excellent sound quality. CICs and IICs are suitable for mild to moderately-severe hearing losses.
Least visible style of hearing aid
Feeling of occlusion/plugged up
Some individuals report their own voices sound like they are speaking in a echo chamber
Can be hard to manage if one has poor dexterity
All the electronics are housed in your canal; thus increasing the likelihood of going in for repair for moisture and wax damage.
Shorter battery life
Directional microphones are not available
Most models are not compatible with wireless technology
Small ear canals may not be able to wear this style.
