Q: Are there any discreet hearing aid options?

There are a variety of discreet hearing aid styles. The Lyric device is the only hearing aid that is 100% invisible. It placed into the ear canal by a trained hearing care professional, provides 24 hour hearing, and is replaced a few times a year. There is also the invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) and completely-in-the-canal (CIC) custom hearing aid styles that offer minimal visibility. The receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) is the most common style and is worn behind the ear with a small clear tubing that lays flush with the cheek. This style is very discrete from the front and the behind-the-ear component is easily hidden with a person’s hair. Contact your local Connect Hearing Care Professional for more information on different hearing aid styles to fit every lifestyle and budget.
