IICs are custom hearing instruments and individually tailored to fit the contours of the wearer’s ear. The invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) is the ultimate in discretion. This style of hearing instrument sits deep in the ear canal making them almost invisible.
The IIC contains similar technology to other custom hearing instruments, but the functional components are wrapped in a tiny shell and this makes them more discreet. The suitability of IICs are largely dependent on the size of the user’s ear canal and therefore normally only suits 15% – 20% of people who find IICs fit them perfectly.
