Concha Audiology offers a wide variety in products to suit your hearing needs. Here is the latest in hearing aid technology:
INVISIBLE IN CANAL (IIC)
IIC hearing aids are typically placed very close to the eardrum past the second bend of the ear canal. Advantages to this technology are natural directional location, very little wind noise, decreased “plugged up” feeling, virtually no feedback and invisibility. Some disadvantages are the ear canal has to be very healthy, relatively straight and large enough to fit the device. Candidates must be in relatively good health (no diabetes, blood thinners or chronic ear maladies). Very severe or profound hearing loss patients are not good candidates. Some patients have reported discomfort due to the insertion depth. There are two basic types of IIC hearing aids; extended wear and daily wear.
Extended Wear devices do not need to be removed at night. They can also be worn while showering and bathing! Typically, the hearing aids are inserted by an Audiologist during an in-office visit. They contain a long battery life and typically last 120 days. Extended Wear hearing aids will have to be replaced since the battery is sealed in the device. They can be purchased on a subscription basis with the patient paying a yearly fee and will receive replacement hearing aids as needed during the subscription period.
Daily Wear devices can be removed by the patient at night, contain a replaceable battery, and are typically custom fit for the ear canal. They are a one-time purchase and the patient will have to buy new hearing aids when the hearing aids have run their course, which is typically two year.
Phonak Venture is the latest in hearing aid technology from Phonak. Venture hearing aids have longer battery life, better performance, are dust resistant and water resistant. These new hearing aids use the following revolutionary technology to give hearing aid users more signal, less noise and better understanding in more listening situations:
