People often ask me a very important question- what style of hearing aid is best for me with the hearing loss I have? Let’s talk about the two different styles of hearing aids that Audicus offers and the benefits of each one.
Our hearing aids include a Receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) and a Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC). Both styles are custom programmed to your hearing loss.
Receiver in the Canal. The microphone of this hearing aid is housed in a discreet hearing aid case. This is where the sound enters the hearing aid. The receiver, or speaker goes into your ear canal. The two parts are attached by a thin electronic wire. Our RIC hearing aids are called Clara and Wave.
Why is this better, you may ask?
First of all, the hearing aid itself is very small and comfortable. Sounds that you hear are more natural and pleasant. This hearing aid is especially good for those folks who have high pitched hearing loss. This hearing works well with mild to severe hearing loss.
Here’s the best part, the Wave RIC hearing aid also comes with Bluetooth, so you can talk on the phone and stream your favorite music through the hearing aid!
Our newest hearing aid is a Completely in the Canal (CIC), the Aura, and works well for those with mild to moderate hearing loss.
The Aura is an invisible lightweight hearing aid that fits into your ear canal and is great for masker wearing. It stays in your ear when you remove your mask! It’s so easy to handle and comfortable to wear.
If you have any questions about our Receiver in the Canal and Completely in the Canal hearing aids, please give us a call. As I love to say, at Audicus, we’re here to help you hear!
