Comparison with NHS hearing aid
on 4 September 2010
I bought this item after losing 2 NHS hearing aids (Siemens) and being too embarrassed to go back and ask for another replacement. It does what it says, and I find it just as effective as the Siemens one. There are some drawbacks - the volume control is stiff, so I find I have to take it out of my ear to adjust it: it's more visible than the NHS one , and there is no facility to tune in to a hearing loop. On the other hand, the "noise filter" setting is more effective than the Siemens one - it cuts out the over-amplification of top notes when listening to music, and the noise of traffic when you're walking down the road. Good value for money, I'd say.
