Supple, Hi-Flex Cable from Cicoil Makes First Disposable Hearing Aid Possible

The Songbird flexfit hearing aid is being called "the world's first disposable hearing aid", and is designed as an "over-the-counter" solution for people with moderate hearing loss, needing part-time hearing assistance.

Valencia, CA -- The Songbird flexfit hearing aid is being called "the world's first disposable hearing aid", and is designed as an "over-the-counter" solution for people with moderate hearing loss, needing part-time hearing assistance. A one-model-fits-all was essential to achieving an affordable price point. Making this possible was a clever design featuring a miniature flexible flat cable from Cicoil®.

The key to a "fits-all" design is the highly flexible, miniature Cicoil flat cable running from the behind-the-ear body to the microspeaker earpiece, which is user-adjustable for ideal length and fit. Cicoil's silicone-jacketed, high flex flat cable was selected for the Songbird hearing aid because of its unique attributes. With the earpiece being regularly looped from behind the ear to a comfortable placement inside the ear, extreme flexibility was a primary requirement. Cicoil's 2-conductor cable utilizes finely-braided copper wire, with base stranding of just 60 AWG, creating the high flexibility needed. While flexible, the miniature Cicoil cable is strong enough to mechanically hold the earpiece, and retains the tensile strength not break while being pulled by the user to adjust the cable length and the position the earpiece.

The second key attribute for this application was Cicoil
