    Invisible (INV) Hearing Aids

    The AHB9 is a true custom device, made from deep 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.
