A type of hearing aid that is inserted by a trained hearing healthcare professional deep into the ear canal during an in-office visit. It can be worn for several months at a time without removal and is 100% invisible. It can be worn when showering, exercising, sleeping, using the telephone, and wearing headphones.
Extended-wear hearing aids are most appropriate for people with a mild to moderately-severe hearing loss. In order to be a candidate, your trained hearing healthcare professional will assess the hearing loss, ear shape and size, lifestyle, and other medical conditions.
The most popular extended-wear hearing aid is the Lyric.
