What is the Best Hearing System for you?

Over the years hearing aids have developed massively from the simple horn-shaped acoustic sound collectors to the latest digital devices and there are many different hearing aid manufacturers offering many different styles and technologies.

Recent advancements have enabled manufacturers to add technologies to tiny hearing aids that eliminate many of the problems associated with these highly cosmetic fittings, but unfortunately less in the size often means more in the price. Age UK Hearing Aids are different; the approach focuses on your needs. So within a chosen technology the cost is ABSOLUTELY THE SAME for an aid whether it fits behind your ear or right inside your ear canal.

In order to find out which technology is right for you, the audiologist  must first find out the cause and degree of your hearing loss and of course understand your lifestyle requirements.

To find out more about hearing aid technology you can request the free 35-page hearing advice guide or book a free hearing test with your local Audiologist and they will advise on which style and technology best suit your hearing loss, backed by the unique evidence based assessment.

"The hearing aids have proved to be exactly as audiologist told us."
Mr Ronald Hesselden

The audiologist explained that his job was to solve our hearing problems. Please explain what your problems are?  Your social Activities so that I know where your running into problems and then we’ll see how they can solve it.So I explained about I have with the television and I also explained the problems when I am in a fairly crowded room when my family are all here; we couldn’t hear each other speaking and so on.The asked then questions if we go out to lunch at restaurants? Did we go to the theatres and so on.When we explained all of this he said “Now I’m going to do some tests in the hope that I can solve all these problems, and he explained clearly as we were going along what these tests were for so we knew what it was all about and he explained that at the end of the day he hoped that he could give us some hearing aids but he couldn’t be certain till all the tests were completed because there’s just occasionally, especially when you get older like I am – I’m nearly 92.  You find that the brain hearing is slightly out of sync and hearing aids will not solve that problem.He was absolutely marvellous, every problem we talked about. He talked about how he could resolve it and so on.He was here a couple of hours and we had 3 types of tests, fortunately I passed the brain test as well.One of the things I liked about him compared with, I’ve had two other private test aids people before. All they seem to be interested in was money. The reverse happened with him. All he was interested in was solving our hearing problem.The hearing aids have proved to be exactly as he told us. They work beautifully, this adjuster works exceptionally. So we’re very happy with the service we’ve received. Very happy indeed.
