This aid sits behind the ear with a very thin wire connected to a miniature speaker which goes in your ear canal. Over 80% of customers buy this version. It is comfortable, discrete and provides a very natural sound.
The over the ear hearing aid is available in rechargeable so you never have to worry about batteries and you are being friendly to the environment. Battery versions are available and for some this is a good choice.
Our aids are able to connect to compatible smart devices via Bluetooth. You can stream crystal clear stereo from anything audio. There is also a handy APP that lets you control your hearing aid volume and other settings.
For these hearing aids we take an impression of your ear using a special substance that creates a 3D mold of your ear canal. The aid is then made specifically for your ear shape to fit perfectly. Depending on your ear shape, lifestyle and hearing loss these models may be a great choice.

Hearing health is brain health
Did you know you hear with your brain? Your ears collect sound, but it’s your brain that actually understands it. In other words, hearing is thinking.
Good hearing helps your brain stay fit throughout your life, and helps avoid many other health problems. What is more, the brain is actually the most sophisticated sound processor that we have!
This realisation has led one hearing healthcare company called Oticon to pioneer brain-friendly hearing aids. What Oticon does differently is focus on understanding how the brain makes sense of sound, so they can make hearing aids that support your brain’s natural way of working. Oticon calls this unique philosophy BrainHearing™.
With this approach, Oticon focuses on designing hearing aids that support the mental hearing processes and, with active use, may protect the brain against hearing loss-related risks such as cognitive decline.
