When Should I Upgrade?

At Sunshine Coast Hearing we are often asked "when should I upgrade my hearing aids?"

Reasons to upgrade include:

  • Improved hearing aid technology that will result in a significant improvement in your hearing ability, especially in background noise. Some hearing aid processors have become super fast - Signia's Ax even has two super fast processors, one focusing on speech and one filtering background noise - at the end of the day this means completely natural hearing even in very difficult situations.

  • Ease of use - Take advantage of the new rechargeable technology making hearing aid batteries redundant.This is not only better for our environment but makes life a lot easier. Rechargeability is one of the main requests we get when clients are choosing their hearing aids.

  • Improved physical design - The new Signia AX sits in the ear a lot better due to it's shape mimicking the ear canal. The improved cable/tube bending and in-ear position ensures a closer fit on the ear, making it less visible. It is also significantly thinner behind the ear making it more comfortable especially when wearing glasses.

If you have either the Signia Nx, Oticon OPN or Phonak Marvel/Belong (or older models), you should see a significant improvement in your hearing abilities and we would encourage an upgrade. We always offer you a FREE demo for at least a week so you can hear the difference yourself.

We sent out a newsletter to our existing clients in February this year and had an excellent outcome with 100% of the more than 20 clients, successfully upgrading.
