The Best Hearing Aids From World Leading Brands

In general, I use three hearing aid brands as our suppliers of equipment. However, if you don't see the brand you are interested in here, just contact us. I have agreements with the leading hearing aid brands so I will be able to fulfil your needs.

The reason that I concentrate on three specific hearing aid brands is that they provide us with everything that I need to treat almost everyone with hearing loss. Our arrangement means that no matter what you need to hear better, I have a solution that will fit both your lifestyle and budget.

Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Rechargeable hearing aids have increased in popularity over the last two years and many of the brands have now introduced them. I provide both Lithium-ion powered rechargeable hearing devices and silver-zinc devices. Most of the brands have now switched to, or are in the process of, switching to lithium-ion as it has proven to be the most reliable of systems.

Invisible Hearing Aids

I also provide the ever popular invisible hearing aids.

The introduction of new invisible hearing aids means that they fit more people than ever.

Providing the Most Suitable Hearing Aid For You

The most suitable style of hearing aid, and which model is best, depends on a variety of factors. The type of hearing loss, the degree of hearing loss, lifestyle environmental conditions, social conditions, your dexterity and budget, are just a few of the factors that I consider in the selection of an appropriate hearing aid for you. As an independent audiology practice, you can rest assure that the hearing aids I recommend for you will not be influenced by manufacturer contracts. I will recommend the product that is best for you, your particular hearing needs, and your lifestyle needs.

Your First Appointment

At your first appointment I will discuss any concerns that you have about your hearing. I will then conduct a FREE hearing test and a FREE hearing health check. Once completed I will explain your results, what this means for you and discuss what solutions are suitable and if a device is needed. Guiding you through the options I will take into account your loss, lifestyle and budget when recommending any hearing device, you will also be offered a no obligation FREE 7-day trial.

Hearing Aid Types

Behind The Ear Hearing Aids

Behind The Ear or BTE hearing aids are the more traditional hearing devices. The difference between them and the newer receiver in canal devices is the fact that the receiver (the speaker) is contained within the body of the hearing aid. These devices are reliable and many of the hearing aid brands have introduced more discreet but powerful models over the years.

BTE devices sit behind your ear and are joined to your ear with a traditional type tube and mould or, more commonly, a thin tube and some sort of custom tip that sits in your ear canal. The thin tube option is as discreet as a RIC device, but it may not be suitable for everyone. It depends on the hearing loss involved.

BTE devices are very reliable hearing aids and rarely break down.

Receiver In Canal Hearing Aids

Receiver In Canal (RIC), or sometimes Receiver In The Ear (RITE), depending on which hearing aid brand it is, are hugely popular devices. In fact, a large proportion of hearing aids sold privately are RIC devices. Their popularity is driven by their versatility and size; they are very discreet devices but can deliver a lot of power, which means they are suitable for even the most severe hearing losses.

RIC devices separate the receiver from the rest of the workings of the hearing aid; this allows the devices to be small and low profile at the top of the ear. It also means that the hearing aids can be used with receivers with different levels of power, making them suitable for more people.

While RIC devices are reliable, the Achilles heel is in the receiver placement in the ear canal. It means that every user needs to take care of the receiver following a daily clean and care ritual. Time spent on care and cleaning will ensure that your receiver does not fail. RICs are not suitable for everyone; if you have problems in your ear canal or middle ear issues, a RIC device might not be the best option for you.

In The Ear Hearing Aids

In The Ear (ITE) hearing aids are pretty much any type of hearing aid that completely sits in your ear. There are several types:

  • Full Shell - which fits into, and completely covers, the bowl of your ear
  • Half Shell - which fits into, and covers half of the bowl of your ear
  • In The Canal - which sits in the canal but extends out into the bottom of the bowl of your ear
  • Completely In Canal - the ever popular Invisible In Canal which sits deep within the canal and isn't visible at all

ITE hearing aids are not suitable for everyone, like RIC devices they are not suitable for people with ear canal infection issues or middle ear issues.


Rechargeable Hearing Aids

Rechargeable hearing aids have surged in popularity in the last few years mainly because of new battery technologies that have entered the market. Those technologies ensure that any user will get a full day of use out of one charge, even if they like to stream audio to their hearing aids. This has given us professionals the confidence to... read more »

However, with the introduction of Receiver In Canal hearing aids, their popularity has faded somewhat. Here is what you need to know about invisible in canal hearing aids.
