Hearing Aid Features

Each one of us is different and no two ears are the same, so we are careful in recommending what will work best for you based on your unique hearing loss, lifestyle, and listening needs.

Noise Reduction

Difficulty in background noise is one of the most common symptoms of hearing loss.

Noise Reduction

Today's hearing aids have noise reduction features that can detect voices in noise and remove the unwanted bits to give you clearer access to what is being said.

Clarity

If you've noticed you seem to be hearing fine but you're not understanding words very well, you might need a boost in the high pitches.

Clarity

It is common for hearing loss to affect the high pitches first, which is where we hear consonant sounds like "s", "th", and "sh". If you miss one of those sounds, it's difficult sometimes to know what the word was. For example hearing the difference between "sunny" and "funny" is quite tough if you have hearing loss in the high pitches.

Hearing aids are designed to amplify only the sound where you have a hearing loss, making speech clearer, not louder.

Tinnitus Management

Tinnitus often accompanies hearing loss. Use your hearing aids to help manage your perception of the sound.

Tinnitus Management

Many hearing aids can be programmed with different types of tinnitus management systems. Usually, these settings have some form of calming sound to help keep our thoughts away from the ringing. Sounds range from pleasant ocean waves to broadband noise but can be adjusted for exactly what works for you.

Headphones modified

Personalized

Hearing aids can be manually and automatically set to determine your preferences.

Personalized

Hearing aids can learn our preferences over time, making their automatic adjustments personalized. After your audiologist sets up your devices for your hearing loss, you can make changes to the settings using your smart phone or buttons on the hearing aid. Over time, your hearing aids will remember what your favorite settings are so you are free to roam and hear in every environment, every time.

"Everyone should hear the birds like this"

My husband was nagging me that I couldn’t hear him. He felt that I was missing out on so much, that finally made me head for a hearing test. Best thing I ever did.

My husband is a pilot and had done his aviation medical audiogram with Scott and really liked his manner, knowledge and professionalism, so once I had realised I needed to seek expert hearing advice, it was an easy choice.

After about 10mins in the sound booth, my audiogram results showed that I would benefit greatly from wearing hearing aids. Options were discussed with me and once I had made a decision, digital hearing aids were produced on the spot. I went away a little bewildered, hearing everything with crystal clarity.

I recall saying before I had decided to have a hearing test, - I can hear the bird song, so what am I missing? Yes I could hear the birds but not like I can now with hearing aids. They are amazing and so crystal clear. Everyone should hear the birds like this.

"The change has been very positive and has made life much easier, the tech is truly amazing"

I had known my hearing was failing for some time but did not actually realise how bad it was.

My mum has worked in the health sector for some time and I guessed she noticed my struggle & prompted me to have a hearing test. So I eventually went along to see Alice my local audiologist as she was handy, taking the first step with her was very easy and professional. Since the fitting of my hearing aids the change has been very positive and has made life much easier, the technology is truly amazing. 

If you find yourself saying ay' a lot or having to ask people to repeat themselves often, and get frustrated with people always mumbling and not speaking clearly then get down to the clinic, Alice will sort things out quickly and professionally.
