What are the best hearing aids available?

Hearing aids are designed to improve the quality of life for individuals with hearing loss by allowing them to hear and understand speech more clearly, and reduce the negative impacts of hearing loss on their daily activities and relationships.

According to the World Health Organisation, around 466 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss. This number is even expected to double by 2050.

With the advancements in technology, hearing aids have become much more sophisticated, offering a range of features and benefits that can help individuals better their quality of life.

Read on for the different hearing aid types and for the best hearing aids available in 2023.

Rechargeable hearing aids and the benefits

Rechargeable hearing aids are designed to make your life easier and hassle-free. If you have dexterity issues, changing your hearing aid batteries can prove quite the task. Rechargeable hearing aids are easier to handle and allow for more independence. 

If you use your hearing aids frequently throughout the day, you won’t have to worry about them running out at a crucial time. Because you’ll charge your hearing aids overnight, you’ll have enough battery power to get you through the day to put your mind at ease.

Plus by recharging your batteries instead of buying new ones, you are creating less waste and helping the environment whilst also improving your lifestyle.

Bluetooth hearing aids and the benefits

Bluetooth hearing aids use wireless technology to allow two devices to communicate with each other over short distances. 

If you’re a fan of walking and talking on the phone, you will no longer have to awkwardly hold your phone to access your hearing aid’s microphone. Your Bluetooth hearing aids connect directly to your smartphone providing clear audio directly through your hearing aids.

Instead of blasting the TV at a high volume, you can connect directly with your TV and watch your favourite shows at your preferred level. You can also listen to the radio, your favourite album or your podcast whilst out walking your dog.

Invisible hearing aids and the benefits

Get effortless hearing with complete discretion with Invisible hearing aids.

As the hearing aids sit within the ear or ear canal, they are extremely hidden. At the same time, they minimise the feeling of your ears being blocked and allow you to focus on conversations, even in disruptive background noise.

You can use your devices, such as telephone or headphones, with little to no feedback. Many Invisible hearing aids also have sophisticated technology such as Bluetooth, to stream your audio directly to your hearing aids.

Our Invisible hearing aids can be custom-made to your ear shape, size and structure to help keep them secure to suit an active lifestyle. With no external wires or tubes, they’re also extremely comfortable.
