Following on from selected mini launches around the world the new Siemens iMini is due to be launched in late March 2011.

This product is following in the footsteps of other deep CIC and IIC products launched by other manufacturers this last year, the most notable so far being the Starkey OtoLens (now called SoundLens) and the Phonak Lyric.

Pricing is a little sketchy at the moment, the information we have so far is it’s a very small CIC instrument with the latest Siemens BestSound technology features and is for mild to moderate hearing losses.

We understand the Siemens iMini won’t sit as deep in the canal as the OtoLens and Lyric but will nonetheless be a very discreet solution.

As details emerge we will post on the blog.
