HR Archives | April 1995 Hearing Review
By Sergei Kochkin, PhD
Summary: Consumer satisfaction ratings of completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids are equal or favorable to the most current  MarkeTrak profile. CICs received better scores in key areas such as visibility, directionality, feedback, and performance while on the phone and in outdoor situations. Statistics point to CICs attracting a more youthful, less hearing-impaired market. CICs provide benefit, as measured by the APHAB, equivalent to the typical new hearing instrument.
