Nearly half of them take that request a bit further — they want an invisible one.
“With the incredible advances in technology and design, patients can now have the discreet look they want and better hearing they need to meet the everyday demands of their active lifestyles,“ said Dr. Payne.
Payne is one of the first hearing care professionals in the U.S. to offer the new invisible Oticon Intiga, a super tiny, ultra sleek hearing solution that sits inside the ear canal.
The fully automatic hearing solution is designed to improve first-time users’ ability to hear and understand conversation and other everyday sounds with less listening effort, even in difficult listening situations such as restaurants, conference rooms or sporting events.
The audiologists at Marshall Hearing Center customize Intiga to fit the unique shape of each patient’s ear to ensure a secure, comfortable fit. This means that the device stays put and invisible no matter how active the patient’s lifestyle.
Payne reports that his patients also appreciate that because Intiga is worn inside the ear, they can easily use the telephone or wear headphones without discomfort.
For patients who may not be candidates for the custom-made Intiga, Payne offers the tiny Intiga, a high performance hearing instrument that fits almost invisibly behind the ear.
Intiga is the world’s smallest fully wireless hearing solution, enabling the device to act as a wireless, hands-free headset for cell phones and other entertainment devices.
