If you have discovered that you have hearing loss and could benefit from treatment, you can rest assured that hearing aids really are worth it. However, concerns about cosmetics are understandable. Thankfully, hearing aid technology has moved far beyond what it was even a couple of decades ago, with smaller, more discreet hearing aids available for all types of hearing needs. You might wonder, “Are there invisible hearing aids?” You have several options.
Lyric by Phonak
Audiologists agree that as of 2023, Lyric by Phonak are the most invisible hearing aids available. They are semi-permanent and reside deep in the ear canal. You must qualify for the hearing needs that Lyric hearing aids meet. Talk with your local audiologist to discover if you qualify for certain.
Invisible in the Canal (IIC) Options
If Lyric is not right for you, Invisible in the Canal (IIC) hearing aids are quite similar and very discreet as well. They also sit in the ear canal and may have a small rod extending toward the back of the ear canal. The very edge of the devices may be visible, but they are hard to notice.
Receiver in the Canal (RIC) Options
The Receiver in the Canal (RIC) hearing aids sit behind the ear except for the receiver, which sits in the ear but connects to the component behind the ear. They are similar to Behind the Ear hearing aids. These devices are so slim that they are hardly noticeable, even though part of the device is outside of the ear itself.
The Cosmetics of Hearing Aids
If you are serious about getting hearing aids for your hearing health, it is best to invest in the best with an audiologist. You should also be frank about how important the cosmetics of hearing aids are to you, and your audiologist should help you find the best model.
Treating Hearing Loss
Ultimately, taking care of your hearing health is of the utmost importance. Your sense of hearing connects you with people in a way that no other sense can. Arguably, hearing loss is even more noticeable than a hearing aid.
