Hearing Aid Styles & Models
Choosing a hearing aid thats right for you is not an easy task! With so many manufacturers, so many styles, and lots of different prices its easy to get lost in a minefeld of options! We will be there to help and guide you through the process, making sure you have the right solution for your needs, but its also useful to have an idea of what you may prefer to wear, and if there are any unique features that you or your family may benefit from.
Below you will find an overview of the models on our pricelist, what they look like, and their main features. We are always happy to delve deeper into these features at your consultation.
Phonak are a Swiss company with a reputation for innovation and quality sound reproduction.
We feature 4 of their main form types. Their Marvel 2.0 aids have been extremely well received by Audiologists and Hearing Aid users and are hugely popular.
Offering excellent sound and build quality with some fantastic noise reduction qualities on the higher models. They are both RIC (Receiver in the Canal) models and extremely discreet, one which is rechargeable and one which takes batteries.
The rechargeable is the popular choice, offering a full days use from a 2hr charge. The battery version has a smaller form factor, but batteries will have to be changed.
All models feature full wireless connectivity, meaning you can connect your aids to your phone, tablet, and the TV, meaning your FREE TV kit with these models will deliver exceptional results.
We also offer two custom made aids for people who either want a more cosmetic choice or a different style.
The Phonak Titanium is the only hearing aid made with metal. The durability is obviously second to none, and because the shell can be so thin it means the hearing aid can go deeper into the canal. Often invisible but that depends on the anatomy of your ear. Being so small it does'nt featue any wireless connectivity options, but for people who want a discreet option this is the best choice.
For people who still want a custom option, but maybe something a little easier to handle, we have the Phonak Virto B range. From small canal aids to larger aids for power, we have the option to fit any loss. Some of the sizes do have the capability of being wireless but you will need to have an accessory on your person.
If Connectivity is important to you then you need look no further than Phonak Marvel 2.0.
The Video to the left features well known Vlogger Dr Cliff, who helps to explain some features of the recently launched and updated APP from Phonak.
Having the ability to connect to 2 separate devices, and being able to do that with either Android or iOS, makes this a popular choice for many.
Starkey are a long running hearing company from the US. The biggest hearing aid supplier in America. They produce innovative and reliable hearing solutions and we are proud to carry their premium line of Livio aids, of which the Livio AI sits at the top with some outstanding features, of the likes we haven't seen before.
The AI stands for artificial intelligence. This is not your normal hearing aid! A few of the features are completely unique. There is a health and brain tracker, a bit like having a fit bit on your ear. Monitoring and recording your daily activity, but also your social activity as interaction with other people helps towards a healthy brain!
Other features include a language translator built in, the ability to use it with an Amazon Alexa device, and some efficient noise management. However we are most impressed with the embedded fall detector. The accelerometers built into the hearing aids can actually detect if the person wearing the aids has fallen over. It can then alert named contacts in the users phone and tell them of the fall. They will even get a location of the fall included. It truly is a fantastic addition and one that will give peace of mind to users but also to family members, especially when our part of the world can be remote in places.
The aids are wireless (yes we supply a free of charge TV kit!), rechargeable and attractive.
There are 4 technology levels available to suit everyone's individual needs.
Starkey have recently been featured in Time Magazine as one of the best Inventions for 2019 for their Livio AI hearing device!
