Hearing Aids in Jersey

Making soft sounds audible and making loud sounds comfortable

What are They?

Whatever your hearing loss, we have a wide range of the latest hearing aids and technologies from leading manufacturers, providing you with the broadest choice for comfort, clarity and realistic natural sound.


Hearing Aid Accessories

We have the knowledge and experience to match the level and type of hearing loss to the best technological and discrete hearing solutions available from leading international manufacturers.


Some hearing instruments are rechargeable, so there is no need to worry about changing batteries in the middle of a meeting or during dinner with friends.

The instruments are placed into the charger overnight and are ready to go all day. Some chargers include battery self-storage, so they are ideal for a week away without the need to carry cables and a three-pin mains plug.

Remote Controls

Remote controls are available on many models. They may change volume and programmes or be Bluetooth compatible with various accessories. Some can also be used to make changes to the tonal quality of the hearing aids to help with speech in noise or, for example, whilst listening to music.

Bluetooth Accessories

Bluetooth will connect your hearing aids wirelessly to audio devices like TV, mobile phone, and iPods using a small transmitter, which is connected to the sound source (e.g. TV), and which transfers the sound directly into your hearing aid(s) via a receiver or a Bluetooth compatible remote control.

Smartphone App

The latest generation of smartphone Apps has a range of manual controls such as Volume Control and can also include features such as Fall Alert, Find My Phone, Phone Call Streaming, and Language Translation.


Types of Hearing aids

Tinnitus Maskers

Many people will experience a ringing or rushing in their head, if only momentarily. It is only when the 'noise' dominates a person's life that something needs to be done.

Many people suffering from tinnitus also have some degree of hearing loss. Tinnitus maskers are built into a small, simple BTE hearing aid and can help to distract the brain from the 'noise' - be it music or the sounder of a waterfall.

Bone Conductors

These can be worn on reading glasses or a band and are an option for people with perforated ear drums which weep. These are now being replaced by bone-anchored hearing aids, which means a referral for an operation.


These may be recommended when a one-sided hearing loss is present to provide all-around hearing again. They are available as a wireless system.


How Do They Work?

Numerous makes of the latest generation hearing instruments are available, but they all have certain characteristics. They are made to selectively increase the volume of the sounds you want to hear and limit the fatigue that comes with too much volume. It is about helping you hear more clearly.

A Microphone A microphone picks up sound and converts it from an acoustic signal recognised by the human ear to an electronic signal that the amplifier can recognise.
The Signalling Processor The Signalling Processor allows special features such as Sound Smoothing and Feedback Cancellation.
An Amplifier The Amplifier processes the electronic signals, making sounds louder. Emphasis is placed on which sounds are amplified specifically to suit individual requirements. For example, some people can hear higher or lower frequencies better than others.
A Receiver The receiver converts the electronic signal back into an acoustic signal that the wearer can hear.

Hearing instrument technology continues to develop and improve, and we are now in an exciting time where the latest generation of hearing instruments is accessible to everyone. Today’s devices offer superb performance and are smaller, more efficient, and more comfortable than ever before.

The sophisticated technology of hearing instruments means they don’t just make all sounds louder. They can differentiate between sounds – separating them and presenting them differently.

The wearer can focus on specific sounds like speech and make it easier to hear over background noise.


Additional information

Automatic Programme Options Hearing aids generally operate automatically and will recognise and adjust to different environments to optimise hearing speech and make hearing more comfortable, whether in a quiet or noisy situation. For many people, the automatic or ‘universal’ programme is all they need. However, other programmes are available if required to provide a different sound setting for specific situations, such as cinema or TV.
Telephones and Smartphones There is a range of automatic and manual options to help with telephone use, including the conventional Telecoil.  Wireless instruments enable a system where the sound is transferred directly into the hearing aid or aids, improving intelligibility. Smartphone Apps provide a longer list of control features, should that be required. Our team is fully trained with these technologies and can help with the set-up and updating needed from time to time. Most users are content to let the hearing aids automatically sense listening environment changes and automatically respond with program adjustments.
Noise Reduction Most instruments will have several program strategies for reducing unwanted background noise to make it easier to focus on the important speech and sound that you want to hear. Some very sophisticated noise reduction systems are used today, but the exact method will vary according to the manufacturers. Adaptive directional microphones and special awareness features will evaluate the environment and adapt automatically to focus on the area from which the speech is coming and decrease the sound picked up from other areas.
Other Options Rechargeable custom, rechargeable or standard batteries, travel charging case, wind noise reduction, echo reduction, manual volume control, smartphone App, find my hearing aids feature, fall alerts.
Feedback Management There are very effective management systems that significantly reduce the likelihood of the aids producing the annoying whistling noise which used to be associated with some of the less modern instruments.
Wireless Technology If you wear two hearing aids, wireless technology links them to each other so that if one senses and adapts to a new environment, the other will make a similar adjustment.  They synchronise so that volume and programme settings are always balanced.  They also operate in tandem, so if, for example, you manually alter the volume or programme on one hearing aid, the other will change to match simultaneously.
