Types of hearing aids

Digital hearing aids are manufactured in many different styles, sizes and colour. Each level of technology is available in the style of hearing aid you prefer.


Are two hearing aids better than one?

Just like our eyes, our ears work best as a pair.

Modern hearing aids are designed to work together sending speech from one ear to the other – as if your hearing aids were talking to each other. The best hearing aid technology provides better speech understanding in even the most challenging listening environments.

Less effort, more ease

The abundance of sounds in life can be tiring, requiring constant concentration and great listening effort.

Everyday you move between many different listening situations. The best hearing aids will adapt to your precise environment. They will, for example, recognise when you are in a noisy restaurant and activate the  ”Comfort in Noise” program. If you then start a conversation, they will not switch completely into the “Speech in Noise” program but blend the two to precisely match your listening environment.

The universal language of music

Music is like a world of it’s own. It speaks a universal language that touches your emotions. The very best hearing aids give you back the pleasure of music to enjoy the now, or reminisce about past experiences and special occasions.

My wife persuaded me to visit Preston Hearing Centre even though I already wore NHS hearing aids. I was fitted with two state of the art Phonak hearing aids on a trial basis. Early one morning my wife awoke me and told me to put my hearing aids in. She took me to the door to hear for the first time in my memory the dawn chorus, what a pleasure and shock to my system ! I went back to the Hearing Centre and purchased my hearing aids the next day.

I listen to a lot of music and have a high quality music system. With my new Phonak Audeo hearing aids I’m now getting a good range of frequencies from my speakers and I’m enjoying my music to the full. I can also hear the television infinitely better. The overall sound quality of these hearing aids is fantastic.
