Hearing aids are more than mere amplifiers, they are complex digital devices and in order to for them to reach their life-changing potential they must be fitted by an expert.

Hearing aids purchased online cannot be programmed properly to suit your specific hearing loss, and any money you save upfront will be lost with interest when the aids inevitably need repairing or adjusting to function properly.

Hearing Aids


Hearing aid technology has improved greatly over the years - today’s digital instruments offer more natural hearing and are smaller, more efficient, and more comfortable than ever before. They no longer just make all sounds louder, but can differentiate between various sounds and present them in different ways. Users can also focus on specific things like speech, with background noise now more easily overcome.

BTE - Behind The Ear

Suitable for all types of hearing loss. Fits behind the ear and transmits sound to the ear drum via tubing.

ITE - In The Ear

Suitable for a wide range of hearing loss. All components are housed in a plastic shell which fills the outer ear.

RITE - Receiver In The Ear

Suitable for mild to severe hearing loss. Merging the cosmetic advantages of ITE devices with the technological possibilities of BTE devices.

ITC - In The Canal

Suitable for mild to moderate hearing loss. These devices fit into the ear canal.

CIC - Completely In the Canal
