Alta2 Invisible In the Canal (IIC) Hearing Aid, intended to be worn in the left ear. Produced by Oticon Limited, United Kingdom, 2018.

The Alta2 Invisible In the Canal Hearing Aid is designed to, quite literally, be invisible in the ear, prioritising discretion alongside improving the quality of the user's hearing. It sits inside the ear canal, designed to capture sound in as 'natural' a way as possible, using microphones, microchip processors, and loudspeakers to amplify and transmit sound into the inner ear, where it is translated into electrical impulses to be interpreted by the brain.

Its main features, such as noise reduction and a soft speech booster, allow the user to adapt the hearing aid to their needs in particular environments depending on their level of hearing loss, the level of ambient noise, and the direction the sound is coming from.
