Custom in-the-canal (ITC) hearing aids

ITC hearing aids are customized for your needs

ITC hearing aids are among our most powerful in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aids. The ITC hearing aid sits slightly further out of your ear canal and is a custom hearing aid made for your unique ear shape. For those with mild to severe hearing loss and in search of a hearing aid with greater flexibility and functionality, the ITC hearing aids could be a great choice.


Features of the ITC hearing aids

Similar to all ITE hearing aids, the ITC hearing aids hold all of their essential components within a lightweight plastic shell that is custom-made for your ear. However, there are some significant differences between the ITC and the smaller ITE hearing aid styles.

The ITC hearing aids have more features

The ITC hearing aids are slightly bigger than the smaller ITE models. Therefore, they have room for more features. Because of their larger size, they can have push button controls for volume and program change on the actual hearing aid. This allows you to manually adapt your custom hearing aids to the environment you are in.

How do ITC hearing aids work?

The microphone of the ITC hearing aids picks up the sound waves from the environment and converts them into electrical signals. The signals are then processed by the microchip and sent to the amplifier. The amplifier strengthens the signals' power and then sends them to the loudspeaker, which allows you to hear the sound. The sound is processed based on your environment and the degree of your hearing loss.

Advantages of the ITC hearing aids

The ITC hearing aids are comfortable

Molded for your unique ear shape, the ITC hearing aid should fit perfectly in your ear. As it sits completely in the ear, with nothing behind the ear, it will not interfere with eyeglasses or masks due to its location. The ITC hearing aids are comfortable to wear and easy for users to adapt to as they enjoy improving their hearing capabilities as they go about their day.

The ITC hearing aids are versatile

The ITC hearing aid is discreet but is not placed entirely inside the ear canal. This has many benefits. It makes it easier to insert and remove your custom hearing aids and provides room on the casing for a selection of control buttons. These control buttons allow you to make changes to the volume and select programs depending on your environment for a better listening experience.

The ITC hearing aids provide clear sound

The ITC hearing aid shell size not only has the advantage of fitting control buttons, but also offers the space to provide, not one, but two microphones enabling them to reduce the noise coming from behind you while focusing on the important sounds from the front. This offers a clearer sound in noisy environments.
