Invisible hearing aids

What are invisible hearing aids?

Invisible hearing aids sit completely in a person’s ear. They are often so small they are basically invisible to the naked eye. They are made up of a single plastic shell, sometimes covered by a soft plastic dome, that is inserted into the ear. 

How do invisible hearing aids work?

Invisible hearing aids house hearing aid technology and a tiny battery inside a plastic shell. This shell is then inserted directly into the ear. Some people find this a more comfortable hearing aid option as it allows a wearer to have no physical parts of the hearing aid outside their ear.

The pros of invisible hearing aids

Invisible hearing aids are the most discreet hearing aids available. They are the only option that provides no visible hearing aid parts outside the ear canal. They are often more comfortable for people who wear glasses, as they do not sit behind the ear.

Why some choose not to get invisible hearing aids

As the body of an invisible hearing aid is so small, many of the enhanced sound quality features found in other hearing aids simply cannot fit. Similarly, the batteries used for these types of hearing aids need to also be incredibly small. Therefore, invisible hearing aids are only recommended for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. Additionally, some can find invisible hearing aids difficult to handle due to dexterity issues. 

Are invisible hearing aids better?

The main advantages of invisible hearing aids are:

Discreetness

Invisible hearing aids are the tiniest, most petite hearing aids available. When in the ear, they can be difficult to see.

Comfort

Sitting completely in the ear, invisible hearing aids are one of the most comfortable hearing aid styles. They are especially comfortable in situations where people also need to wear glasses and / or a mask, as they do not take up any valuable space behind the ear.

Questions about invisible hearing aids?

The Aura starts at $699 per ear.

Most people cannot spot an invisible hearing aid in someone else’s ear, however, there may be a slight shadow or small part of the hearing aid showing depending on your ear size and shape.

Due to their small size, invisible hearing aids cannot house all the technology found in other hearing aid types like RICs and BTEs. Therefore, in terms of sound clarity, they do not perform as well as other hearing aid types. However, for those with mild to moderate hearing loss, the technology found in invisible hearing aids is often sufficient to improve hearing.

There are many factors to consider when shopping for a hearing aid, including price, comfort, features, and hearing loss profile. Invisible hearing aids are ideal for those with mild to moderate hearing loss who do not want to have a hearing aids seen or felt. Ideal candidates will not be in the market for enhanced clarity hearing capacity, Bluetooth, or rechargeable batteries.
