I have had some trouble keeping a CIC in place but right now things are good. I have a Starkey Destiny in my left ear and it was literally falling out so they put a little foot on it that is supposed to hit the inside part of my outer ear and it works. My right ear has a Rexton Insite CIC and it was a little loose and I was getting feedback so they remade it and it is better, no feedback, but still a little loose (but doesn't fall out).
I'm getting great sound from both of mine and my hearing is pretty bad. I like the CIC style because most of the time there is no fuss, no muss. It doesn't interfere with glasses and seems to be less trouble than what I see with BTE. I put them in in the morning and then forget about them until evening.
