Be the only one who notices your hearing aids

Porter des appareils auditifs en toute discrétion

If you’re one of those people who believes hearing aids are made to understand rather than seen, these tiny devices are for you!

Invisible-in-the-canal hearing aids (IIC for short) are moulded to the wearer’s ear canal for a personalized, exceptionally comfortable fit. As you may have guessed from the name, they sit deep in the ear, at the second bend in the auditory canal, and are therefore invisible to those around you.

The best things come in small packages

Although tiny, IIC hearing aids are equipped with many innovative features, including Voice iQ noise reduction technology, which enhances speech over noise almost instantaneously. This rapid and precise identification of voice signals allows Voice iQ to analyze incoming sounds and adapt rapidly to reduce background noise, even between the syllables of a single word.

Spectral iQ technology

The Spectral iQ series of hearing aids was developed specifically for patients with moderate to severe high-frequency hearing loss. Spectral iQ technology improves speech audibility using a sound-filtration algorithm that analyzes the composition of the high-frequency speech captured by the hearing aid’s microphones. The system identifies the speech patterns being used and replicates the speech signals at frequencies that are more easily understood by the wearer. This new signal is blended in with the original amplified signal. It’s a dynamic process that occurs only when the hearing aid detects high-frequency speech. The rest of the time, the technology switches off, with zero impact on the sound quality.

Hydrashield2 technology

These hearing aids are also equipped with a redesigned microphone and Hydrashield2 technology, which shields the devices from virtually all water and sebum. Hydrashield2 has been tested and proven effective in clinical trials.

To determine which hearing aids are best for you, consult an audioprosthetist.
