What is the best hearing aid to buy?

If you have been for a hearing assessment, either via your GP through the NHS or directly with Scrivens, and a Hearing Aid Audiologist has diagnosed hearing loss for which you require hearing aids, you will have a number of options to choose from. It all depends on the severity of your hearing loss, as well as the type of hearing aid you would personally prefer to wear, based on the look and feel when you have tried and few on and made a comparison. The aim will be to come to a decision that both the audiologist and you are happy with. It is particularly important to make the decision together, on together is important, as you will be able to advise on which design and style you prefer, and the audiologist will be able to make suggestions based on your particular level of hearing loss.

We have a number of hearing aids available, including:

  • In the Ear (ITE) – custom made hearing aids which fit into the bowl shaped area of your outer ear instead of inside the ear canal. A popular choice due to their discreet size and comfortable fit.
  • On the Ear (OTE) – one of the most commonly worn hearing aids as they are small, subtle and available in a variety of designs and colours. They are a popular choice for first-time hearing aid wearers as they provide a more natural sound.
  • Behind the Ear (BTE) – hearing aids which provide the most power, as well as being able to handle moderate to severe hearing loss. BTEs are even suitable for those with a profound hearing loss.

There is a wide range of hearing aids available at Scrivens Hearing Care – visit your local branch to find out more.
