We’ll also take into account your budget and lifestyle. This way, you’ll get a hearing solution that is specifically tailored to you. A few things to consider when looking for the best hearing aid might be:

1. Significantly improve your hearing ability

The continuous development of hearing aid technology is what hearing aid manufacturers focus on. Their main aim is to give hearing aid users a hearing experience that is as close as possible to normal hearing.

So when you’re looking for the best hearing aid for you, you’ll want to look for one that: 

  • Delivers clear speech, even in crowded, noisy situations
  • Provides access to the full sound scene
  • Helps you choose what sounds to focus on
  • Lets you hear all the sounds around you (360-degree sound experience)
  • Helps minimise mental strain

Oticon's latest model is the Oticon More™, and it provides all of the qualities listed above. If you want to try Oticon More™, then you can book a free appointment in one of our clinics.

2. The most discreet hearing aid

Modern hearing aids are more discreet than ever, and most styles we offer will be too. Even behind-the-ear hearing aids can be difficult to spot. 

Some hearing aid models are now so small that they’re virtually invisible. They sit inside the ear canal, making them almost unnoticeable to other people.

The most invisible type of hearing aid

The smallest hearing aid type available comes in the invisible-in-the-canal (IIC) style. This is the best option if you are looking for a device that is close to invisible.


You can try an invisible-in-the-canal hearing aid at one of our clinics.

4. The most comfortable fit 

You’ll get the most out of your hearing aid if it fits comfortably. A comfortable hearing aid will become just another part of your daily routine.

When it comes to comfort, here are a few things to think about:

  1. The shape of your ear canal can influence which hearing aid will be most comfortable for you (i.e. in-the-ear hearing aids vs behind-the-ear hearing aids) 
  2. Digital hearing aids offer optimal comfort since they work to support your brain's natural way of processing sound. Hearing amplifiers, on the other hand, merely make the sounds around you louder.

Schedule a free appointment in one of our clinics and we’ll give you the chance to see and try different hearing aids. You’ll be able to find the one that suits you best.
