Hearing aids have coming a long way over the years. A century ago, people with hearing loss used ear trumpets to amplify sound. There was no hiding the condition. Thankfully, if you have a hard time hearing sounds today, you can make use of a number of invisible hearing aid options.
Types of Invisible Hearing Aids
The three main types of hearing devices are behind-the-ear, in-the-ear and invisible. Here's a quick look at the differences.
Behind-the-ear. The technology is fitted into a tiny case in the shape of a curve to fit inconspicuously behind the ear. A transparent tube connects the aid to its companion piece that fits in the ear.
In-the-ear. This unit fits entirely within the ear. There is no additional component for the outside of the ear. It is custom molded for each user.
Invisible. Using advanced technology, these units fit entirely within a person’s ear canal. They are completely out of sight, hence invisible. You can see more examples of these hearing aid styles here.
