Noise affects us all
Too often we take our hearing for granted. It is only when we can’t hear the twitter of birds, the punchline of a joke, the television or the latest family gossip that we realise that we are missing out on life. Very often it is somebody else who notices.
With traffic, road works, mobile phones, car alarms, the drone of television and relentless background music in shopping centres, restaurants and pubs, there is rarely a quiet moment. Some of this ‘toxic’ noise may be loud enough, or prolonged enough, to damage our hearing.
In the UK, around 9 million, or one in seven, people have hearing problems. Only a quarter of those who could benefit from wearing hearing instruments actually wear them. What’s more, it is estimated that it takes an average of 15 years for people who suspect that they have a hearing loss to finally decide to seek help.
There are many reasons for poor hearing and a hearing loss can be complex and very individual. The longer it is left untreated, the more difficult it is for the brain to retain the memory of sound.

What our customers say about us
Both my wife and I have bought hearing aids from Robert some time ago, very professional with testing and excellent after sales service, nothing is to much trouble. Thank you Robert and your team.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Robert for all he has done for me and my wife, Linda. You have gone out of your way to visit and reassure us with total professionalism and expertise.
Since having my new hearing aid fitted my tinitus has greatly improved. I could not recommend The Private Hearing Aid Company highly enough.
My new hearing aid has enabled me to enjoy the television and radio; it has allowed me to realise what I was previously missing out on.
I was well advised and well attended to and the outcome has given me a better life. It is a joy and a pleasure to recommend this company.
