THE LATEST IN HEARING AIDS

As an Independent Audiologist David prides himself on evaluating all of the available hearing aids and recommdending only the one that is best for a particular client. He does not receive a commission for supplying a particular manufacturers hearing devices. But with the overwelming response to the Oticon OPN range of aids, David has decided to put his name and reputation behind this and two other hearing devices for their improved ability to make it easier for heairng aids wearers to follow conversation when in environments where there is competing background noise. Keeping in mind that once the level of background noise reaches a certain level no hearing aid is going to provide clients with a satisfactory level of clarity for conversational speech, the Oticon OPN, Bernafon Zerena and the Sonic Enchant are providing better performance due to their use of a new computer chip with more memory and faster processing. All of these devices use the same chip. Sonic devices utilize particular response and attack times to differentiate themselves from the others, Bernafon utilize a Channel Free technology, while Oticon OPN utilize two microphones to provide users with a better understanding of the sound (soundscape) within the space they are in - one microphone picking up alll sounds from all directions, while the other is a directional microphone that assists in picking up conversation from those speakers in front of the wearer. This latter technology has been providing surprising benefits for wearers, particularly for the noisier situations. 

 

David provides free trials of these devices. Please note you should shop around on price. Prices for the top-of-the-range devices can be as high as $ 6500 each. David's maximum price for these is $4500. Same aid, lower price.
