Extraordinary Story illustrating the benefits of Oticon Opn

From Nuala, a regular contributor:


“So how cool/not cool is this?
I was at the gym. I went to get a paper towel to wipe down my exercise machine.
My phone was on the machine I was using.
My back was turned 2 seconds and my iPhone was gone! … but the music was still playing through my hearing aids.
Someone had taken it.
When the music stopped (the Bluetooth signal had moved out of range), I ran downstairs and I saw this guy in reception had it.
I challenged him straight away. He said it was his but I said it couldn’t be, because I had it linked up to my hearing aids.
Luckily he owned up and I got it back. I don’t think I would have noticed, or got it back if I hadn’t been wearing my hearing aids and the music had then stopped.
I think he backed down quickly, as he also felt sorry for the fact that I had hearing aids too!

Tympanometry to measure ear drum and middle ear function is now STANDARD

By | Technical | No Comments

We are proud to introduce this test as a free add-on to our wonderful ‘free trial consultation’ which bears no charge. Everyone will benefit from this very interesting and informative test.

A sealed probe is placed at the entrance to the ear canal and a very slight airflow is emitted. The impedance (resistance) of the ear drum and middle ear is measured within a few seconds. This can be very useful in determining the nature of a hearing loss and informing our audiologist as to what hearing aid will best suit that individual.

We believe that we are the ONLY private audiologist in the locality to offer tympanometry as a free service* (*at our discretion).

We look forward to seeing you.

Mrs. Bradshaw is delighted

Jenny had not really come to terms with her hearing loss when she came to visit us. She felt that hearing aids were cumbersome, ineffective and that they would randomly fall out of the ear.

Through our evaluation process, Mrs Bradshaw was able to take her new system away in holiday (with some good advice). She says she wouldn’t have had the confidence to try if she’d had to pay up front. Luckily, for everyone concerned, she was amazed with the benefits and extremely grateful to us for ‘sorting her out’

Recent visit to R. J Donnan Hearing Care:
“Right from the start Rob made my wife and I feel very relaxed and confident of a very professional service. After my hearing was found to be ‘in need of improvement’ Rob went through several options with me and placed his recommended hearing aids in place. We chatted for some time until I was confident enough to leave, wearing the hearing aids on trial. No payment was requested at this time. Rob made a follow up appointment for me for the following week. On my return, and only when I was totally happy with every detail, was payment required.
Will be going back next week for the first of future follow up appointments. As I work in the music business it is essential that my hearing has to be as good as it can be and I am pleased to say that I am more than satisfied.”
