HEARING AIDS are devices designed to receive normal levels of sound and selectively amplify them. Hearing aids have changed enormously since they were first designed. Today’s hearing aids, while varying in technology level, are sophisticated real-time digital sound processors, and do not compare to the original analog hearing aids of more than 20 years ago. They are totally different to any “preset” or “internet- sold” amplifier, which are erroneously marketed as ‘hearing aids’. Real hearing aids require an Audiologists’ intervention to program them to create an optimum world of sound for you.
Reconnect Audiologists recommend choosing devices based on your specific needs. Everyone is different. We programme products to your unique settings, which is critical to your success. Consulting a professional who understands your hearing loss, your lifestyle requirements and the hearing aids that are available, is the most important step you can take, to ensure that the quantitative and qualitative information about your experience is reflected in your management.
Our Reconnect Audiologists provide patients with a wide variety of hearing aids from a number of local and international suppliers, so that we are able to give our patients choice among the best possible range of products available.
