Titanium hearing aids

Titanium hearing aidsThese new hearing aids are the smallest invisible-in-the-ear-canal hearing aids ever made; produced from medical grade titanium, using 3D printing technology.

Renowned for its strength & durability – Titanium is 15 times stronger than the traditional use of acrylic in hearing aids.

Because it is so strong these new hearing aid shells are only 0.2mm thick – half the thickness of existing acrylic shells.  60% smaller electronic components together with a smaller integrated microphone makes the new  Virto B Titanium 26% smaller than any other invisible-in-the-ear hearing aid. 

Call now to trial the Virto B Titanium for yourself on 0207 486 1053.

Listen to Paul Checkley, Clinical Director of the Harley Street Hearing group, interviewed by Mark Forrest on BBC Radio about hearing protection for musicians.   You can listen safely to loud music with Musicians earplugs which are custom-made to fit each individuals ear.

The Telegraph Hearing

“After 15 years of struggling with his hearing, Keith Davis reached the point of no return. A meeting he chaired eight years ago, as chief executive of a local authority, had taken four times as long as it should as people painstakingly repeated themselves again and again for his benefit.”

The Telegraph discusses how Keith Davis solved his hearing problems, and our clinical director Paul Checkley is mentioned in the article as follows:

Clinical director Paul Checkley at Harley Street Hearing says he is not surprised it takes on average 15 years for people to seek professional help for hearing loss. “Unfortunately there is a stigma around hearing aids as people perceive it as an outward sign you are getting older. Glasses have now become trendy but the stigma remains for hearing aids.”

University College London Ear Institute have selected Harley Street Hearing as an observation site to place students studying for their Masters Degree in Audiological Science. We were particularly pleased to help on this project as three members of our team are UCL graduates themselves. At Harley Street Hearing we are keen to support the training and development of young people in the field of audiology, so you may be asked if a student can observe during your appointment.

Please feel completely free to let us know if you would prefer not to have a student present.

 

“When I attended meetings at work it was always so difficult to hear that it made me feel stressed and tired. Although I have always had a hearing loss, I have never wanted to wear a hearing aid. Thanks to my tiny Lyric device, I can hear perfectly and no-one can tell I have a hearing aid. Its unbelievable, I can hear the rustle of paper and even hear my watch ticking. As for music it just sounds beautiful.

Thanks to my Lyric instruments and the professional staff at Harley Street Hearing it’s like a whole new hearing world has opened-up to me. Even if it cost twice as much it would be worth every penny!”

“The moment that Paul Checkley fitted my tiny hearing instrument I started laughing again. How absolutely amazing to be able to hear all those consonants, crackling sounds, tinkling water, whispers and even my own voice again.

Life had become exhausting trying to process every conversation, communication a chore, work difficult and socialising impossible. I realised I was isolating myself and this was the main reason along with annoying tinnitus that I decided to take action. I had no idea the process was so simple and so life changing. It has actually kicked all my senses into being and diminished the ringing in my ears.

The only thing visible to others is the smile on my face. My advice would be no matter what your age don’t delay do it today!”

Paul Kennedy“I was recommended Harley Street Hearing by my hearing specialist. After being fitted with an in the ear hearing instrument, which is almost invisible, my life has changed dramatically. Of course, a hearing instrument is not the restoration of perfect hearing, but the improvement in my ability to listen has been dramatic.

The quiet spoken colleague across the desk at work can now be heard; I do not have to worry in a crowded room and I am able to hear multiple conversations and not feel that I am missing anything. Even hearing the clock in my kitchen tick – I have had it for 10 years and never realized it made a noise. The most dramatic impact has been on my ability to listen to music. I listen to a lot of music and over the years had gradually being playing the volume at very high levels to be able to hear.

My hearing aid has a special program that adjusts when listening to music to give the full dynamic range, not only do I listen at much lower volumes – making my wife and neighbours happy – the quality of what I can hear has improved to the point where very familiar pieces sound new and fresh.

If you have a hearing loss problem, there are technologies available today that can change your life – it has for me.”

Paul Kennedy

“I’ve had difficulties with hearing particular pitches for some time. I was always asking people to repeat things but always put off doing anything about it, as I never realised just what a difference hearing aids could make. When I returned to University recently, I felt that I was missing important points in lectures and knew I had to do something to address the issue.

Harley St. Hearing were exceptionally professional, knowledgable and accomodating in fitting my miniature hearing aids, which are extremely discreet. I can hear general day to day conversations so much better now and dont miss anything in lectures anymore””

Paul Whelan

“If you want expert advice and care from a group that is not tied to one manufacturer then Harley Street Hearing is the place to go”

male_sil-150x150[1]“Being only 28 years old and requiring a hearing aid, might sound like the worst thing in the world, but most people I meet don’t even know that I’m wearing one. Over the last few years my hearing has deteriorated, but it hasn’t affected me nearly as much as it could have. I still go to lots of gigs, and sometimes, I even think my hearing is better than my friends, especially when there is background noise. All thanks to Harley Street Hearing and the Phonak Exelia which they have supplied me with.

The service I received was impeccable throughout. Thanks guys, you’ve made a massive difference to my life!”

David Worrell

As a DJ I knew I should be protecting my hearing, I often have ringing in my ears after a gig. I tried the foam plugs but they just made everything sound dull.

Then I heard about Musicians Hearing Services. They made me custom fitted specialist earplugs which make things quieter but keep the fidelity of the sound. The service was great and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly.

Now I won’t play a set without my earplugs.
