The Phonak nano is a tiny IIC (Invisible in Canal) hearing aid designed for those who want a highly cosmetic solution to their hearing problem. It fits deep in the ear canal and is almost completely invisible.
It still incorporates most of the features available in these models and offers the same sound quality. Due to its size and positioning in the ear canal, the nano is not compatible with the wireless or remote control features that are available in many of the other styles.
If it is cosmetics that are a key factor in your choice of hearing aid rather than wireless technology then the nano is an ideal choice.
Unfortunately, due to it’s fitting deep in the ear canal, the nano is not suitable for everyone. The shape of your ear and level of wax production need to be taken into account when looking at this hearing aid.
Update - This aid has been superseded. We can still supply them but they are far from new technology. Please see the current models towards the top of our list.
