Invisible 'In Ear'

Hearing Aids

In-ear hearing aids are a great option for everyday Australians who wish to improve their hearing discreetly.

What Are 

Invisible 'In-Ear' Hearing Aids?

In-ear hearing aids are often called invisible hearing aids because they install directly into your ear. They feature no external wires or tubes, making them less visible than behind-the-ear hearing aids.

Plus, they’re custom-made to fit your ear, ensuring supreme comfort as you go about your daily life.

Invisible hearing aids come in several styles:

  • Completely-in-canal (CIC) – A tiny hearing aid that fits directly into your ear canal.
  • Invisible-in-canal (IIC) – Fitting even deeper into your ear canal than CIC hearing aids, IIC hearing aids are practically invisible. They come with small cords that allow you to remove them easily. These are the smallest invisible hearing aid.
  • In-the-canal – Featuring a slightly longer battery life than other invisible hearing aids, these are more visible but are easier to remove.
  • Half-shell and full-shell – Both of these devices come in shells that fit into your outer ear. Though they’re more visible than other options, they’re also easier to remove.

Pros and Cons


  • Ideal for those with sensorineural hearing loss
  • Customized to fit your ear
  • Practically invisible to the outside world


  • The hearing aid’s receiver may get clogged with earwax or moisture
  • Regular maintenance is required to keep the hearing aid clean
  • These hearing aids plug the entire ear canal, making them less ideal for those with mild hearing loss

Who Is Suitable for Invisible Hearing Aids

Invisible hearing aids are most suited to those who wish to conceal their use of a hearing aid. 

However, their small nature means they can present challenges to those with dexterity issues. As such, we generally find that younger people gravitate towards these types of hearing aids above most others.

Still, it’s important to note that invisible hearing aids plug up your ear canal. Those with mild hearing loss may find this creates more distortion or interference than needed, leading them towards other options.

Invisible 'In Ear' FAQs

The cost of invisible hearing aids in Australia can vary depending on the specific type of device and the level of technology it incorporates.

Prices can range from around $2,000 to $5,000 or more per ear.

It’s worth noting that some private health insurance providers in Australia offer rebates for hearing aids and it is best to check with your insurance provider to see if they cover it and how much they cover.

Invisible hearing aids, like traditional hearing aids, are electronic devices that require regular maintenance and replacement parts. The lifespan of an invisible hearing aid can vary depending on the specific device and the level of usage.

On average, most invisible hearing aids have a lifespan of around 5 years with proper care and maintenance. However, the battery life can be shorter, typically around 1-2 years.

It’s important to keep in mind that the lifespan of the device can be affected by factors such as how often the device is worn, how well it is taken care of, and how often it is serviced by a professional. Regular cleanings and maintenance check-ups can help prolong the life of the device.
