We specialize in 100% digital hearing aids, which pack the power of a personal computer into a tiny device for exceptional sound quality. Automatic volume adjustment and several frequency bands means that your hearing aid can be programmed specifically to meet your individual needs, with background noise and telephone feedback significantly reduced. Some aids are designed just for minor hearing loss and because no ear mold is required you can go home with a sound hearing solution on the same day as your test.

The type of hearing aid you need will be determined by the severity of your hearing loss. Some different types of hearing aids include:
Epoq BTE (behind-the-ear) and RITE (receiver-in-the-ear)
The compact design and ultra-thin sound tube make this Receiver-in-the-Ear concept both functional and discreet. The sound tube goes into your ear and is virtually invisible. Excellent sound quality, combined with a variety of styles and colours, make the Epoq a very popular design. Epoq also comes in a BTE (Behind-the-Ear) style.
Oticon Dual RITE(receiver-in-the-ear)
The Oticon Dual RITE (Receiver-in-the-ear) places the speaker snugly in your ear. The “Receiver-in-the-Ear” concept makes Oticon Dual look virtually invisible - and sound exceptionally clear. The speaker is built into either a soft dome or micro-mold.
There are two types of Oticon Dual, four different styles – and a multitude of colours!
