Bone Conductors

These can be worn on glasses, or a band, and are an option for people with perforated ear drums which weep. These are now being replaced by bone anchored hearing aids which means a referral for an operation.

Tinnitus Maskers

Many people will experience a ringing or rushing in their head, if only momentarily. It is only when the 'noise' dominates a person's life that something needs to be done. Many people suffering from tinnitus also have some degree of hearing loss. Tinnitus maskers are built into a small, simple BTE and can help to distract the brain from the 'noise' - be it a brass band or a whistling kettle.

CROS-BICROS

- these may be recommended where a one sided hearing loss presents in order to provide all round hearing again. They are also now available as a wireless system.
