New Smaller Hearing Aid
The Quantum product family has a new addition. The micro CIC, available with Quantum 20, 12, and 6, is the smallest Quantum developed by the hearing aid manufacturer, Unitron. The hearing aid's small size is achieved by transducer technology, featuring smaller microphones and receivers.
