There are many people who have difficulties understanding speech in background noise without a hearing loss. This is especially common in teenagers and younger people, where hearing loss is undetected by standard hearing testing. This issue is especially common in people who have recently had children. If you feel this describes you or partly describes you, please contact us as we could find solutions to this relatively unknown but very real phenomena.
Musicians and music industry professionals experience hearing issues more frequently than other members of the population. The effect of hearing problems for a musician can be profound.
One study of musicians revealed that:-
Of course, many of these musicians experienced two or more of the above symptoms at the same time.
Some of our patients have usually visited a high-street provider, the NHS, or are new Hearing Aid users needing adjustments because they are unhappy with past service. See what our Clearly Hearing personalised private care can do for you.
Clearly Hearing’s end-to-end process guarantees that, as an employee or employer, you are fully compliant with the requirements of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations Act of 2005, and totally protected from the various loopholes that lawyers can exploit to achieve mass compensation payouts from companies for noise-induced hearing loss.
Hearing loss affects the patient and the people with whom they communicate with on a regular basis. If you are experiencing signs of hearing loss, it is important to think of the people in your life and consider how your hearing loss might impact on your relationships.
Tinnitus sufferers make up to about 70 - 85% of people with hearing impairment. Only 10 - 25% of tinnitus sufferers seek medical attention. Noise and music exposure are common causes of tinnitus - concerts, festivals and listening to music through headphones at high volumes are all risk factors.
Frequent flyers and light sleepers, we can help with the right hearing protection to get you through those challenging times.
We can calibrate hearing aids from all the manufacturers (Phonak, Unitron, Oticon, Starkey, GNResound, Signia, Bernafon) and all private Hearing Aid providers (Boots, Specsavers, Scrivens, Amplifon, Hidden Hearing, The Outside Clinic and other independent retailers).

Committed musicians, producers and DJs readily put their hearing to task 24/7 to perfect that cherished familiarity with their music, and to ensure they are aware of all the nuances in a piece, all while listening out for ambient sounds around them.
Swimmers’ ears are particularly at risk, because any water that left in the ear for a long time becomes stagnant, and causes an infection. We perform an assessment to uncover what it is you need from your hearing goals and help you to meet them.
Following a visual examination of the outside of the ear, the ear canal and the eardrum, we perform the hearing sensitivity test - Pure Tone Audiometry. Hearing ability also depends on brain function so, besides the pure tone test of hearing sensitivity, we perform functional hearing tests such as speech tests in noise and speech sensitivity alongside cognitive function tests. This will help us decide how to manage the impact of each aspect of your hearing.
Hearing Therapy is an option for those who experience audiological issues as they are at a higher risk of health problems exacerbated by barriers to communication. The includes issues related to depression, anxiety, fatigue, social withdrawal, and difficulties with recalling and remembering information.
Tinnitus is a perception of sounds generated by the nervous system of the ear and brain often described as ringing, humming, whistling or buzzing noises. For some, it is unnoticeable or unbothersome, but for others treatment can help to relieve some debilitating tinnitus symptoms. There is a host of methods and support available at Clearly Hearing which have benefited our patients. There is no such thing as a Tinnitus ‘cure’, but Tinnitus management programmes at Clearly Hearing are tailored to the needs of the individual. It is important to remember that tinnitus affects people differently so there is no one solution for all but we can develop a detailed plan to put you on a path to relief.
