Choosing the right hearing aid

Finding the right hearing aids for you can be very difficult. If you have been searching the Internet you will know that they are available in many shapes and sizes; levels of technology and price.

We specialise in finding the appropriate hearing aid for you by matching your cosmetics, performance and budget preferences with all available products. We will carry out a full assessment and provide you with a written report detailing a range of options and suggestions to fit your individual requirements. By remaining independent, we are able to resource aids from any manufacturer, thus increasing choice.

The only way to evaluate a hearing aid is in your own environment, so we ensure that you have ample opportunity to take aids away and use them at home/work etc. If they don’t meet your expectations we will find out why and change the plan if necessary.

In The Ear (ITE) and Half Shell Instruments

ITE aids offer a good compromise for people who don’t want to wear a hearing aid behind the ear, but still want an aid that is easy to handle. They are generally more powerful than smaller aids and can benefit from technologies such as directional microphones. They are easy to operate, even for people with dexterity problems.

In The Canal (ITC)

ITC aids are small and easy to use. They can be provided with adjustable volume control and program selection or set up to work fully automatically. All the electronics are housed within the bottom third of the ear.

Completely In The Canal (CIC)

CIC aids fit deeply into the ear canal and are the smallest aids available. In some cases they can be almost “invisible” providing a deep enough fit can be obtained.

Receiver In The Ear (RITE)

These are very small behind the ear aids which connect to the ear by means of a very thin tube. The receiver (or hearing aid speaker) is housed in the ear canal. The physical separation of the hearing aid microphone and the receiver allow a greater margin for feedback so the ear can be left un-occluded. They are particularly suitable for high frequency hearing loss and provide a very good cosmetic solution.

Behind The Ear (BTE)

BTE aids fit behind the ear and are connected to an ear mould designed to deliver sound into the ear. They are available in a range of styles, colours and technologies.
