Below we have a list of hearing aid styles, our manufacturers and suppliers as well as the latest releases from our trusted partners.

Invisible in Canal (IIC)

Invisible In Canal (IIC) is the smallest type of hearing aid available. The hearing aid is made from an impression of your ear and hence is custom made for your ear. Once manufactured, the hearing aid sits comfortably deep inside the ear canal and is completely invisible when worn.

Completely in Canal (CIC)

The hearing aid is made from an impression of your ear and hence is custom made for you. These hearing aid devices fit completely inside the ear canal and only the tip of a tiny plastic line shows outside the canal, which is used to insert and remove the instrument.

In the Canal (ITC)

ITC (In The Canal) hearing aids fit all of their components inside a small shell, which is moulded to the shape of the ear to fit inside the opening of the ear canal.

In The Ear (ITE)

In-the-ear hearing aids house their components in a custom made shell that fills the bowl of the ear. Their size makes them easier to handle than some other types of hearing aids.

Receiver in Canal (RIC)

These are sophisticated behind the ear hearing aids which have the ability for wireless connections to most things via bluetooth or the manufacturers proprietary signal. In addition to improving your hearing, you can often stream music or phone calls to your hearing aid making them a versatile device.

BTE Hearing Aids

Behind The Ear (BTE) and Over The Ear (OTE) hearing aids are generally larger devices and are used in special circumstances where individuals have severe or profound hearing loss or if on-going ear infections make them a bad candidate for RIC hearing aids.

Frequent Asked Questions

Why should I choose Total Hearing for my hearing aids?

At Total Hearing, our primary focus is always ensuring that you get the best solution for your hearing needs. Our specialists have extensive experience in helping guide you to choosing the best solution and they will tailor the hearing aids to suit your needs. Additionally, we perform Real Ear Measurements as standard with all our clients ensuring that you are receiving the most out of your hearing aids.

Our comprehensive follow up regime and our customer focused approach is backed up by a wealth of experience and passion for the industry. We’re always looking for the latest technology from the big manufacturers in an attempt to improve your experience.

What are the best hearing aids on the market?

The best hearing aids on the market are the ones that best suit you as an individual. A pair of hearing aids might be perfect for one patient and the same pair might be less effective for another. It’s important that the hearing aids you are using are tailored specifically to your individualised hearing profile.

How often do I have to come back to have my hearing aids adjusted?

At Total Hearing Wimbledon we offer comprehensive follow ups which entail a follow up regime every 6 months once the hearing aids have been fine tuned. After your initial hearing aid fitting, we will invite you to come back 2 weeks later for a follow up in order to fine tune your hearing aids after you have acclimatised to them. We will often offer a follow up 4 weeks after the first follow up to ensure that you are happy with the hearing aids and to make any last fine tuning adjustments. After this, we offer a 6 monthly routine follow up to ensure your hearing and hearing aids are working as they did the first day you purchased them.

How do I know if I need a hearing aid?

As our hearing deteriorates slowly over a period of time, it can be difficult to judge the level of our hearing loss. Often when individuals are raising the level of the TV, or if they are asking people to repeat themselves and the most common one, where you think everyone else is mumbling. These are good indicators that you may have a hearing loss and could be a good candidate for hearing aids. The first step would be to book for a comprehensive hearing check.

What are REMs and do you perform them?

We Perform Real Ear Measurements (REMs) on all our clients.

Real Ear Measurements are an objective measure of your hearing aid whilst you are wearing it. It’s a very important as it objectively helps your specialist adjust your hearing aid to prescriptive targets. If you would like to learn more about REMs, please click here.

Are cheap hearing aids worth it?

The quality and sound discrimination of cheaper hearing aids simply isn’t as good as leading brand hearing aids. This is because the larger hearing aid companies spend millions in research and development and employ the best engineers so that their products are constantly improving. What this means for you is that the hearing aids are faster and able to distinguish speech from noise providing you with better speech discrimination. Cheaper manufacturers often have outdated technology making them harder to tailor to your specific requirements.

I’ve been advised to wear hearing aids all the time. Is this correct?

It is always advisable to wear your hearing aids often. This is especially true when you first start wearing hearing aids as your brain needs to acclimatise to the new sounds it is hearing. Modern hearing aids are much more comfortable than they used to be and after you become accustomed to your hearing aids, it is beneficial to continue wearing them regularly, as it strengthens your auditory system.

Why am I not suitable for In The Ear (ITE) hearing aids?

We often find that a large percentage of our patients are not suitable for In The Ear hearing aids (ITE). There are multiple factors that your hearing specialist has to consider when looking at what is best suited for your hearing. Not all hearing aids are suitable and often this is determined by the hearing loss, the size and shape of the outer ear and ear canal. Our audiologists will always recommend an aesthetic hearing aid which provides you with the best hearing improvement. If ITE aids are not suitable, a receiver in canal hearing aid (RIC) would be a good option as the tiny wire running from the hearing aid is almost invisible.

What style of hearing aids should I wear?

As there are a number of different types and styles of hearing aids, our specialist audiologist will help you make an appropriate choice based on your hearing loss, the size and shape of your ear canal and any special features you may need on the hearing aids.

Is it necessary to wear a hearing aid in each ear?

If you have a hearing loss in both ears, it is always advisable to wear two hearing aids as the benefits to your hearing are unparalleled. This is especially true if you struggle to hear in noisy environments as the hearing aids can utilise the microphones on the hearing aids to filter out noise and pick up speech.

If you have a profound/severe hearing loss, utilising two hearing aids would be the only way to effectively hear.
