Independence is important to us, and we think it should be important to you too! As you make your selection across various hearing providers, you might be surprised to learn that most hearing clinics have been acquired or opened by hearing aid manufacturers or global retail chains—making them well-disguised vehicles for pushing their own range of hearing aids.
This is why we are so proud to be an independent hearing aids clinic. We work hard to find the best treatments from the full range of available solutions, including tinnitus management, rehabilitation, counselling, and hearing aids from all leading manufacturers.
Hearing aid manufacturers
When it comes to hearing aids, we keep up with the latest technology and advances. To provide you the most choice with your decision about hearing aids, currently offer a wide variety of hearing aids from leading manufacturers, including: ReSound, Unitron, Starkey, Oticon, Bernafon, Phonak, Widex, Sonic Innovation, SeboTek. All of them offer great features and high-quality products. However, the hearing aids we recommend for you may actually come from a different brand, it all depends on your individual circumstances. We are particularly passionate about invisible hearing aids, so no one but you will know you are wearing them.
Types of hearing aids
The type of hearing aid we recommend for you will depend on:
- The degree of your hearing loss
- Your lifestyle
- Whether you are employed or retired
- Your preferences
- Affordability for your own circumstances.

- Remote control and wireless accessory options
- Nano coating for more protection against dust and sweat
MICRO Completely-in-the-canal (CIC)
- Fits mild to moderate hearing loss
- Virtually invisible
- Reduced occlusion or ‘blocked feeling’ compared to other in-the-ear devices
Canal hearing aids
- Larger batteries for better battery economy and handling
- Easier insertion and removal
- High performance
- Remote control option
What degree of quality do you need in your hearing aid?
All of the above types of hearing aids come in various quality ranges, from the basic right through to platinum. The level of quality we recommend for you will depend on your lifestyle and social needs. Our clinicians at Health & Hearing will help you choose the right hearing aid for you.
