Testimonial from Brett
New custom fitted, fully ‘rechargeable’ hearing aids, with new improved technology, makes such a difference
“I recently purchased my new set of hearing aids, and I decided to invest in the latest, premium level of hearing aids. I have been a long-time wearer of hearing aids (for 20 years), as my hearing disability showed up in my mid-40s.
With this latest level of hearing aids, being the ‘receiver in the ear’ type, I also had to get a custom mould made, due to the shape of my particular ear canal. Minoti throughout the process guided me on my hearing aid options, and took the time to ensure my new custom fitted mould worked exactly for my specific requirements.
I have been seeing Minoti for the last 20 years and I have found her very easy to deal with. She is sensitive to the problems I have, and has helped ensure that I have well fitted hearing aids to address my specific issues. She is very approachable, friendly, and I wouldn’t go to anyone else.
What I have really appreciated with this new level of technology, is that it comes with smartphone Bluetooth compatibility. This has really made a massive difference for me. Being able to control the volume on your mobile phone has been a real plus. Getting this level of technology has really made such a difference to my life.”
