The world's finest hearing aid technology
No longer are hearing aids big cumbersome unsightly devices that amplify everything excessively so that you'd want rather to pluck them out of your ears than wear them.
Modern hearing aids are ergonomically designed to complement the wearer's appearance and to process incoming sound to deliver it comfortably but audibly to the ears.
We work with the world’s leading hearing aid manufacturers to provide you with the best and most up to date technology available. We see it as our duty to provide you with best advice for your needs at all times.
Years of counselling experience has taught us that when considering investment in a hearing aid system there are a two of key factors which potential users need to address, namely the style and technology level of the system.
Improve your quality of life through better hearing. We offer you a risk-free hearing aid trial that allows you to try Kilmarnock Hearing Care products for a full 30 days.
Recent developments have meant that most hearing losses can be fitted with most styles. In making the final recommendation of style we will be considering and discussing with you the key selection factors:
Having decided on the preferred style we would then move to a consideration of technology level. All hearing aid systems are now digital and very flexibly programmable to accurately match overall hearing loss. But there are significant differences in the onboard technological features.
Whilst there are differences in implementation from manufacturer to manufacturer the technological features can be broadly classified as follows:
This allows you as the user to focus on what you want to hear, usually speech, rather that simply hearing all noise in the environment.
The aim here is on allowing the speech signal to dominate where there is competing background noise.
The speech signal is further enhanced to optimise your ability to understand speech in the presence of babble and background noise.
In most systems the above features are combined and work together in a powerful way for your benefit. This increases as you advance up the technology level and in advising you about this choice we will consider certain factors.
Apps and accessories
The power of a hearing aid system and its suitability to an individual user’s needs can be greatly enhanced by the addition of apps and accessories. Here are a few examples:
Perhaps because it’s the unknown, or perhaps because the choices seem overwhelming it takes an average of seven years from the realisation of a hearing loss for the individual to take action.
At Kilmarnock Hearing Care we recognise the difficulty and have tried to ease your path with what we call “Real World Assessment”.
