The Hearing Healthcare Information You Need
“The information you need to make informed decisions about your hearing”
Struggling to hear people clearly, arguing over the volume of the TV? Avoiding going to places because it is too difficult to understand what people are saying? You are not alone, many people like you have similar problems, it's not about the volume, it's about clarity, and if people stopped damned mumbling you would be doing fine! Does that sound a bit familiar?
Being able to hear and communicate with ease makes a massive difference to our lives and our well-being, something that we do not realise until we have a problem. We believe that everyone should have the pleasure of hearing well and the benefits it brings to their lives.
Finding out what to do about it is when the problems start. You are faced with a load of technical gobbledygook that you need to try to decipher before you can make decisions. We think we can fix that problem.
We have extensive experience in the hearing profession, one of us as a customer and the other as both a hearing professional and a sales manager in a hearing aid manufacturer. We want to share our knowledge so that we can equip people with hearing loss with the information they need to make good decisions about their hearing and their treatment.
We also have extensive experience with Independent hearing professionals across the world; we want to share our knowledge of them, their commitment to delivering the best hearing aids and the best care. We think that they should be rewarded for their ethos and ideals and you need the information about professionals who are committed to their customers.
