New Hearing Aid Technology

Hearing Loss is an ever-increasing problem in today’s society, even among young people. The resulting demand has produced devices of highly functional and cosmetic quality. The new, emerging hearing technology is changing the way people work, play, and enjoy life.

Halo and TruLink™ are compatible with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPad Air, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini with Retina display, iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation). “Made for iPod,” “Made for iPhone,” and “Made for iPad” mean that an electronic accessory has been designed to connect specifically to iPod, iPhone, or iPad, respectively, and has been certified by the developer to meet Apple performance standards.

Apple is not responsible for the operation of this device or its compliance with safety and regulatory standards. Please note that the use of this accessory with iPod, iPhone, or iPad may affect wireless performance.

Invisible Devices (IIC Oticon)

This is a true custom device, made from a deep-canal impression of the ear canal(s). It is completely invisible, and, because of the custom fit, better tolerated by many ear canals. It is self-inserted and removed. The fact that it rests on the deep portion of the ear canal provides the same remarkable hearing results.

Benefits of the IIC are:

  • 100% customizable, invisible when worn, digital and fully programmable
  • Most likely will work for you even if you’re not a candidate for other deep canal products
  • Natural sounding
  • Virtually feedback FREE – no more whistling or buzzing
  • Designed to be removed daily to promote better ear health
