The days of premature hearing loss are finally coming to an end.
With recent leaps in technology, hearing aids are becoming more discreet and affordable than ever to people across the UK.
According to research* 42% of people over 50 and 71% of people over 70 suffer from hearing loss. Many don’t even realise that hearing loss is affecting them.
A person who struggles to pick out the odd word in a conversation, or sometimes finds loud environments difficult, may be greatly helped by a hearing aid.
Now, with the latest designs and world-class aftercare, there’s a simple solution to hearing loss.
Technology to improve quality of life
The most common causes of hearing loss are age and prolonged background noise. Over the course of our lifetimes, the fine hairs inside the ear gradually die off or are damaged by sound waves, becoming less sensitive.
If you’ve worked in a loud environment such as a factory (or you’re a fan of heavy rock music) there’s a high likelihood your hearing may have been affected. For all of us, hearing loss is a natural part of the ageing process, but luckily there are some highly effective ways to counter it.
On average it takes 10 years for people to address their hearing loss, even though 1000s of over-50s could benefit from a hearing aid.

If you are affected by the stress and frustration of hearing loss, providers are now giving their customers the opportunity to try their hearing aids before committing to the purchase, through free trials or money back guarantee deals
No longer the chunky pieces of plastic your grandparents might have worn, hearing aids are now as sleek and well-designed as any other modern gadget. One recent development is the invisible hearing aid, which slips discreetly into your ear and amplifies sound – but not background noise – without anyone noticing but you.
