CHOOSING YOUR HEARING AID

Determine your needs

Everyone has different degrees of hearing loss. Some people have problems hearing in groups, others when they are talking to a single person. Where are you experiencing difficulty? Your lifestyle can also have a great impact on how you need to hear. I will customise your hearing solution to match your hearing ability AND your lifestyle. As an independent practitioner in private practice, the instruments I recommend are not available through the NHS.

Things to consider

In determining the best choice of hearing instruments for you, I will consider:

  • Degree of hearing loss: not all shell styles and technologies are appropriate for all hearing losses.
  • Ear anatomy: some ear canals are very tiny, making it almost impossible to fit a canal aid.
  • Lifestyle: your different sound environments will help dictate the best hearing aid to meet your needs.
  • Manual dexterity: small aids are easy to insert but need steady hands.
  • Cosmetic preferences: there’s a wide range of styles, colours and sizes
  • Budget: basically, the higher the cost, the more sophisticated the aid and the more features it will offer, providing greater clarity and listening comfort. Hearing aids are available in a wide range of prices, with a model for every budget. Part of my job is to ensure you are prescribed the most appropriate aids for your loss and lifestyle requirements, this does not automatically mean the most expensive aids will be the most suitable.
  • Two hearing aids: for most people, a bilateral fitting – two aids – provides a much better hearing solution than one, so I offer a reduction on the total cost when you choose this fitting.

 

Getting better all the time

Hearing instrument technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated. Engineers and research audiologists are designing hearing aids that are smaller, more flexible, look better and produce better sound quality than ever before.
