Does hearing get deteriorate with age ?

Loss of hearing is something that is associated with getting older, and it’s a natural part of the ageing process. But your family and friends will notice hearing loss – whereas in fact, if you wear a hearing aid, no one will notice at all. And for most people wearing a hearing aid enables them to get on with their life.

If I have a hearing test, will it definitely mean that I end up wearing a hearing aid?

We will never sell you a hearing aid if you don’t need one, because we’re a company that has built its reputation on looking after its customers and providing them with the best possible care. And just as going for an eye test doesn’t always mean you’ll need glasses, having your ears tested doesn’t automatically mean that the best solution will be using hearing aids.

Aren’t there negative conations with wearing a hearing aid?

We all have preconceptions about hearing aids: how much they cost, how big they are, how uncomfortable they are to wear and what other people will think of us for wearing one.

Aren’t hearing aids ugly and uncomfortable?

Look at a mobile phone, or a digital camera and it’s easy to see how much technology has moved on in recent years. Hearing aids are no different.

As for being uncomfortable, a hearing aid should be custom made for your ear. At Ear Solutions, we will make sure your aid fits you perfectly.

At Ear Solutions, we will work with you to ensure you get the right hearing aid for your needs.
