What is the best hearing aid in 2022?

There's no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer to the question above.

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:

The best hearing aid for you – in detail

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.

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.

3. The best value for money

Price is a significant factor when choosing a hearing aid. It's important to find a solution you are comfortable with. But you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the best quality possible. 

In order to determine what hearing aid provides the best value for your money, we recommend that you book your next appointment by calling 0800 037 3535. A hearing care expert will test your hearing and ask you questions about your lifestyle, your preferences and your listening situations in a typical day.

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 your next appointment, where you will have the opportunity to see and try different hearing aids. This will give you the opportunity to find a model which is most comfortable for you.
