Hearing aids help with more than just your hearing.

Hearing loss has a drastic effect on your quality of life but what some people don’t know is that it can also affect your cognitive ability.

It is normal to accept that as we get older, like other parts of our body, our hearing also deteriorates. Studies suggest that the combination of ageing and hearing loss can increase the likelihood of developing dementia.

Hearing loss is also associated with various other conditions such as; depression and anxiety, heart and cardiovascular, and chronic kidney disease.

Hearing aids help our hearing health. This in turn helps the brain stay mentally engaged in conversation. When we have an active social life it keeps our brain stimulated which is key for our brain and body to remain healthy as we age.

Hearing Aid Styles

The correct hearing aid style is a key element in your journey to better hearing. It is important to consider your hearing loss, cosmetic preference and individual needs when selecting the style.

The four primary styles of hearing aids are:

Invisible-in-canal (IIC)
In-the-ear (ITE)
Receiver-in-canal (RIC)
Behind-the-ear (BTE)
Invisible-in-canal (IIC)

Invisible in canal are the most discreet style of custom-made hearing aids available. They sit deep into the ear canal giving them an invisible appearance. IIC are very popular for those who have a concern regarding cosmetic appearance.

  • Invisible/Discreet
  • Comfortable
  • Natural Telephone Use
  • Lightweight
  • Less Likely to Produce Feedback
  • Natural Sound
In-the-ear (ITE)

In the ear hearing aids, as the name suggests, fit inside the ear. These hearing aids can be very discreet and can also fill parts of the concha or the complete concha depending on loss or dexterity.

  • Custom Made to Fit Canal and Suit Skin Tone
  • Easy Cleaning and Maintenance
  • Comfortable
  • Rechargeable Options Also Available
  • Fit a Wider Range of Hearing Aids
  • Has more power than an IIC
Receiver-in-canal (RIC)

Receiver in the canal hearing aids are the most popular style in the market. They are discreet, powerful and built with a variety of features. RICs are crammed full with technology which can be easily adjusted to meet your hearing needs.

  • Small and Discreet
  • Natural Sound – can be fit with open domes allowing natural sounds to enter the ear canal
  • Reduced Feedback Noise
  • Rechargeable Options
Behind-the-ear (BTE)

Similar to RIC, BTE sit behind the ear delivering sound to the ear via a sound tube or a thin tube attached to a dome or an ear mould.

  • Powerful – For More Severe Hearing Losses
  • Strong Battery Life
  • Easy to Use

Transparent in Discussion, Pricing and Expectations


Hearing Aid Price Guideline
When it comes to hearing aid prices in the UK there is a significant range in the differences, this is due to the variation of manufacturers, ranges and technology levels. It is always difficult to compare pricing as not all centres offer the same hearing aids.

Most hearing centres offer their hearing aids at a price which includes the cost of the hearing instruments as well as their assigned aftercare and package, leading to some instruments costing up to £5000. Which is quite costly especially considering that the final price involves an aftercare package which you do not decide what it is inclusive of.

Clarity Ear Clinic offers a very simple, transparent model for your investment into better hearing. You can purchase your hearing aids at the lowest price guaranteed and then choose which aftercare package best suits you.

This model has allowed our clients to have more of a say in what they want according to their liking and budget without having to compromise on their hearing instrument preference.

Hearing Aid Pricing (For the Pair)

Essential – Range – £849
Standard – Range – £1400
Advance – Range – £1800
Advance + – Range – £2100
Premium – Range – £2300
