Because your hearing is priceless
We understand that technology can sometimes be confusing and daunting. Our aim is to provide helpful advice on hearing aids to make things a little clearer.
The clever bit…
Hearing Aids will help to pick up all of the sounds around you, processing and releasing signals back into your ear.These small electronic devices can be worn in or behind the ear. They have 3 basic parts: a microphone, amplifier, and speaker. The hearing aid receives sound through a microphone. The device converts sound waves into electrical signals, sending them to an amplifier. The amplifier increases the power of the signals, sending them to the ear through a speaker. This gives you a rounded 360 degree listening experience customised just for you.

Very simply put, a hearing aid amplifies sound to help people with hearing loss hear the sounds around them. Today’s hearing aids are sophisticated devices that can amplify and clarify sounds you want to hear, like speech, without amplifying the background noise. Digital hearing aids can also be programmed to suit your individual hearing loss and listening situations to offer the best support.

That really depends on your hearing loss. If you have a hearing loss in both ears then it makes sense to wear a hearing aid that ‘treats’ each ear.
How do I choose the right company to support my hearing needs?
Choosing the right company is key to ensure that: • The Audiologist is registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). The HCPC regulates private Audiologists training and conduct, and handles complaints. All our Audiologists at Otec hearing are highly qualified and registered with the HCPC.
Some of the aids may be similar but the choice under the NHS is limited. In contrast, privately supplied aids often offer a much wider range of advanced technology and include the most invisible, discreet models to suit the individual wearer.
At Otec we offer free lifetime aftercare as part of your solution. Our lifetime aftercare programme enables us to ensure you’re getting the optimum benefit from your hearing solution. As your hearing changes we have the scientific knowledge and experience to fine tune your hearing aid to give you the best possible listening experience.
It may be that you tried an out-dated type of hearing aid or one that wasn’t suitable for your needs. Today’s digital hearing aids are a huge improvement on the old analogue ones; they’re much more comfortable and can be programmed to suit your individual hearing loss. Features such as directionality and noise reduction allow you to hear what you want whilst cutting down background noise. When you are fitted with new hearing aids it is important to allow time to get used to them.
YES we offer a 2 week FREE hearing aid trial this will give you some idea of how much hearing aids could help you and how it feels to wear them.
The main types of aid are behind-the-ear, in-the-ear and in-the-canal aids. All three types are small, discreet, and often available in colours that tone with an individual’s skin or hair. In addition, hearing aids are now available that automatically adjust to different sounds so you don’t need to adjust them manually, or they can be used with a remote control to help people with dexterity problems such as arthritis. For wearers who want to link their hearing aids wireless to their TV, music centre or mobile phone, new Bluetooth enabled hearing aids take sound directly from a wide range of electronic sources, providing clear, sharp sound direct to your hearing aids.
Your hearing aids will last for years at Otec all our hearing aids come with a 2 year guarantee. But even if your hearing aids are still functioning perfectly, your hearing may have changed since you first had your hearing aids and so they may no longer be giving you all the improvement you now need. In addition, technological advances in hearing aids mean that new hearing aids could significantly improve your hearing or could make them much easier for you to use. As part of your free Lifetime Aftercare programme, your audiologist will reassess your hearing on a regular basis to ensure your hearing aids are still giving you the best available improvement in your hearing.
Although it is not possible to restore your natural hearing, hearing aids allow you to hear better. Even people who have normal hearing experience some difficulty in noisy situations and, although no hearing aid can restore your natural hearing completely, wearing hearing aids will almost certainly improve your hearing significantly.
As your hearing loss will probably have been gradual, over the years you will have become used to not hearing properly many of the sounds of life, like traffic noise, the fridge, leaves rustling or birds singing. When you start wearing hearing aids, these sounds will reappear so you need to get used to ignoring the sounds that you don’t want to hear – just like you used to. By wearing your hearing aids as much as possible, you can re-educate your brain to do just this. Wearing your hearing aids will also help you recognise where sounds are coming from and learn the best settings for different situations.
Hearing aids are not normally worn in bed at night. To help in other situations we stock a range of products that are specifically designed for people with hearing loss, such as alarm clocks, . If you are worried that you won’t hear your smoke alarm, ask the fire prevention officer in your local fire brigade for advice about smoke alarms for people with hearing loss.
You may be fitting the hearing aid or ear-piece incorrectly or it may need adjustment by your Audiologist.
No. A hearing aid helps with hearing loss by making sounds louder in the ear but does not return the function of the ear to ‘normal’.
Some hearing losses can be improved by medical treatment or surgery and your GP or Audiologist should have referred you for assessment by a specialist ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) doctor if this was likely to be the case.
Hearing aids will not make your hearing worse so long as they are fitted using an accurate hearing test.
A hearing aid stops warm and moist air from escaping from your ear canals – some ear pieces/hearing aids have a small hole or air vent running right through them to allow air to circulate.
Your Audiologist may be able to add this to your ear piece/hearing aid but if this is not suitable, just remove the hearing aid occasionally during the day to allow your ear to ‘breathe’.
