A CIC (Completely-In-Canal) digital hearing aid, which fits entirely inside the ear. The small stalked handle (upper right) allows removal, and the battery is seen just below the handle. Digital hearing aids (widely available in the early 21st century) allow the audio processing and output to be controlled and programmed, something not possible with analogue hearing aids.
