Hearing Aid Test

During your hearing aid test and consultation, we’ll assess your level of hearing loss in both ears. This includes examination of the ear itself and the auditory canal. A full audiometric hearing assessment will be performed which includes speech discrimination testing if required. This initial consultation will provide you with valuable insight into your hearing loss. Furthermore, we can advise you on the next steps.

Being an independent practice, we can choose from a complete range of new generation technology hearing aids. After your private hearing aid test, we will order in your bespoke hearing aids. This is to provide you with optimum results for your individual requirements. They include:

  • Truly invisible Swiss-made solutions
  • World’s first Artificial Intelligence with integrated sensors
  • New technology to hear clearly with background noise
  • New rechargeable hearing aids – no need to change batteries

Hearing Aid Consultation & Fitting

At your fitting appointment, we will programme your new hearing aids using computerised sound samples to imitate “real-life” situations such as restaurant background noise and street noise. We create settings for your individual requirements.

Your highly qualified audiologist also provides full instruction on the use and care of the hearing aids, including cleaning and maintenance.

Hearing Loss Test – Lifetime of Aftercare

We’ll call you after a few days to see how you are acclimatising to your new hearing technology. Following this, you can book in a follow-up appointment to discuss your progress, adjusting your settings as needed.  All our hearing aid patients receive a full aftercare package enabling you to book appointments whenever you need them. As this is free of charge for the first 2 years, you won’t have to concern yourself with payments. We will then see you annually for your complimentary hearing review. Here we will test your hearing. Additionally, we will clean and check your hearing aids to ensure they are working to their optimal ability.

As well as a private hearing test, we can help you with other services if you require, including a range of custom-made hearing protection and tinnitus therapy. We can also provide on-the-day specialist ear wax removal appointments.

HEARING AID CONSULTATION FAQ’s

1 What does a Hearing aid assessment involve?

As an independent practice we have access to hearing aids from all international hearing aid manufacturers.  In order to recommend the most appropriate hearing aids for you, you will be booked in with an audiologist for a 90-minute appointment. At this appointment we will assess your lifestyle, the health of your ears, as well as your hearing loss, which will give us the information that we need to recommend the most suitable hearing aids for your individual requirements.  Hearing aids come as a blank canvas and it’s the audiologist’s job to ‘paint an acoustic picture’ of your lifestyle onto the settings on the hearing aids. The more information that we know at the beginning of this process the more tailored and bespoke the hearing aids will be to you. It’s therefore possible to have two patients with identical hearing test results but completely differently set hearing aids based on their lifestyle.

We will also follow up your appointment with a report to your GP on the health of your ears and if there is anything of concern it will be referred on accordingly.

2 What hearing aids are available for my hearing loss?

At Harley Street Hearing, we are a fully independent clinic and are not tied to any specific hearing aid manufacturer so the hearing aids we present to you will always be the best for your individual requirements.

3 How much are hearing aids?

Hearing aids range from £1990 to £5240 for a pair of devices, dependent on styles and levels of technology. This includes your ongoing aftercare appointments, annual check-ups, and warranty without any additional costs.

4 How soon can I be seen?

Call the practice on 0207 486 1053 we will be able to get you in for an appointment within a few days of you contacting us.

5 How quickly can I have hearing aids fitted?

This is dependent on the hearing aid style.  Generic hearing aids can be fitted within a week, and custom-made hearing aids take a little longer and would be fitted within 2 weeks.

6 What is the best hearing aid  that you recommend?

We have access to ALL hearing aids, and the most appropriate hearing aids really depends on you and what you need from your hearing aids; so, whether you’re a musician, retired or have a busy life with  varied listening situations, after we assess your hearing and lifestyle we will able to recommend the most appropriate hearing aid specifically for you.

7 I’m unhappy with my current hearing clinic what are the benefits of coming to you?

We pride ourselves on the skills and the wealth of expertise of our highly trained audiologists. The hearing aid itself is only one part of the overall rehabilitation process. The most important factors for the successful fitting of hearing aids are the programming and fine tuning of each instrument; which is where the expertise of our audiologists is essential.

8 What manufacturers do you work with and which would you recommend?

As a fully independent audiological practice, we work with ALL manufacturers.  We choose the best hearing technology for you, ensuring that you reach your full hearing potential.

9 How do I pay for my hearing aids?

 Payment is normally taken at your fitting appointment just before you leave the practice wearing your new hearing aids. There are also payment plan options for paying over a period of time using a direct debit.

10 Can I trial the hearing aids?

Of course!  All hearing aids are fitted on a trial basis. You have a 30 day trial period to acclimatise to the use of your hearing technology and if needed this can be extended until you are completely satisfied.  If you get to the end of the trial and are not completely satisfied then it is possible to exchange your hearing aids for a different set instead at no further cost. Patients rarely choose to return their hearing aids however should this be the case we will organise a refund.

11 What tests are carried out at a hearing aid consultation?

Your audiologist will perform a comprehensive audiological assessment based on your challenges.  This can include, but is not limited to otoscopy, tympanometry and stapedial reflexes, otoacoustic emissions, pure tone audiometry, and speech testing in both quiet and in noise.

12 Can I purchase a hearing aid without a consultation if I send you my hearing test?

In theory yes, it is possible.  However, your assessment is much more than just the hearing test. At your appointment your audiologist will examine the health of your ear canals, assess your entire auditory system, and discuss the most appropriate style and hearing aid for you, dependent upon, and tailored to your specific needs. It’s difficult to do that without having you sat in front of us.

13 What do I need to bring with me to the appointment?

Nothing is needed.  If you do have any previous hearing test results these can be useful to assess any changes that may have happened to your hearing over a period of time.

14 Which are the most discrete hearing aids?

Almost all of the new hearing aid styles these days are discrete, however the most invisible in the ear device is the Phonak Lyric hearing aid.  Your audiologist will show you all options available.

15 Does your clinic have any hearing aids in stock?

Due to the sheer volume of styles, colours and technologies available we don’t keep stocks in clinic.  Each order is done for the individual.  The only exception to this is the Lyric hearing aid, our audiologists can advise if this is suitable for you.

16 How long is the consultation and how much is it?

An initial hearing aid consultation and assessment takes an hour and a half and is £100. If hearing aids are appropriate for you, the £100 is then deducted from the price of your hearing aids.

17 Can my insurance pay for the consultation and the hearing aids?

Health insurance may cover the cost of the consultation, however, most do not cover the cost of hearing aids. Please check with them for authorisation.

18 Can I book a home visit consultation?

Yes.  There is an additional cost to the £100 consultation of £125 which covers the audiologist’s time spent out of clinic.

19 I will only be in UK for two weeks, is it enough time to have them fitted?

Yes.  We do have a thorough follow up process which would normally happen in the first couple months of the hearing aids being fitted, however we can adjust this to suit your needs and travel arrangements. It is now possible to remotely adjust the settings on your hearing aids too, so if you are overseas your audiologist will be able to remotely connect to the hearing aids and make adjustments to the settings from the practice.

20 Can I get the same hearing aid as my relative?

This is possible, but it really depends on your hearing test results and the environments that you have difficulty hearing in. We can certainly trial any hearing aids you have been recommended if they’re suitable and of a particular interest to you.
