Size and colour
If you want something that is "invisible" then the CIC
hearing aids are the smallest of all the fitting types. Both sit inside the ear canal but the IIC is slightly smaller and goes further in so all you "see" is the thin, clear removal handle.
If these are a little too small to handle then RIC
hearing aids are also very discreet. They sit behind the ear but blend in very well as they are available in a range of colours to match your hair or skin tone. The only visible part is the clear receiver wire and that's pretty discreet too!Comfort
CIC and IIC hearing aids are custom made for you so they fit your ear canal perfectly and are comfortable to be worn all day. RIC hearing aids are very lightweight and the receiver and dome that sits inside your ear canal are also very comfortable.Advanced Technology
For natural sounding clear hearing, discreet hearing aids are built using the latest technology. IIC and CIC hearing aids may have some less features due to how tiny they are so if you want benefits such as rechargeability
then a discreet RIC hearing aid is for you.
