not visible even to the discerning eye. Since this device fits into the ear canal snugly it needs
to be customized according to the individual requirements. It is also costly as it is labour intensive.
It is very sensitive and is able to pick out even whispered words and is very unobtrusive. These features make
it really useful for the first time hesitant hearing aid users and regular users alike. It can be programmed according
to the requirement of the user and hence need not be regularly tuned. It uses 16 channel digital signal processing.
It is appropriate for patients with mild to moderate conductive hearing losses.
Its other features include:
1. Extended frequency range
2. Feed back stopper
3. Noise reduction
4. Wind noise reduction
