In The Canal (ITC) hearing aids

What are In The Canal (ITC) hearing aids?

If you are looking for a smaller bespoke hearing aids that doesn't compromise on features or power then an In The Canal fitting could be ideal!

Like all other hearing aids that sit in the ear or ear canal, they are custom made for you using ear impressions and 3D computer models to ensure a perfect, comfortable fit. They have a number of colour options so can match your skin tone and blend in.

As the name implies, ITC hearing aids sit in the ear canal rather than the outer ear so are smaller and more discreet than ITE hearing aids. They can still deal with a mild to severe hearing loss and a volume control/program button may be available depending on the brand. Generally they can have the same range of technological features as their larger counterparts too.

Are ITC hearing aids right for you?

Custom hearing aids can be a great choice for many people and the smaller ITC fitting is no exception. Bespoke to your ear canal shape, ITC hearing aids are comfortable to wear all day and are more discreet than the larger ITE. They offer a wide range of technological features and can be powerful enough to help a severe hearing loss. They are still easy to handle although if you struggle with dexterity then a larger fitting type may be more suitable.
