I was a bit hesitant and even depressed when I first wore my hearing aids. I felt like a part of me was missing when I compared myself to other people. But over time I realised that to be able to hear sound is a gift.
Now I can communicate with my family and friends. This is important as retirees like me need companions from time to time. Hence, I urge all hearing impaired people to use it.
It may not be comfortable during the adjustment phase but hearing and communication is an important aspect of our lives.
I was delighted when I got my hearing aids, I can enjoy many things which I couldn’t before. For example, I can go to the movies, I can communicate with people.
What makes me the happiest is that I can understand the sharing in my bible study group.

Hearing aids are medical devices that are a worthwhile investment for your health. The cost of hearing aids goes beyond just the technology and features. As part of our dedication to delivering a quality product that can improve your life, Hearing Partners offers complimentary services like aftercare, hearing aid adjustments, and more. In addition, there are subsidies that you can apply for.
With over 118 years of experience located across 24 markets, we are constantly innovating and Oticon hearing aids are developed with cutting-edge technology that can improve your health and quality of life.
Dementia, depression, and other health issues have been linked to untreated hearing loss. It is therefore important to treat hearing loss, regardless of whether it is mild or moderate. Hearing aids (Oticon More) are an example of a treatment that can be sought to treat hearing loss and improve communication, while reducing brain health risk and supporting brain health. Hearing loss is one of the most significant contributing factors to dementia that can be treated. Oticon More is able to:
With BrainHearing™ Technology, Oticon More is the world’s first hearing aid with a Deep Neural Network embedded on the chip that provides superior sound quality. With the use of AI technology, 12 million real-life sounds are used to train the Deep Neural Network to identify details within relevant sounds, allowing your brain to process sounds more effectively.
The average lifetime of a hearing aid is 3-5 years. However, it depends on how well you take care of your hearing aids. Here’s how you can take care of your hearing aids:
To experience the full benefits of using hearing aids, it is always recommended to use them in all circumstances and throughout the entire day. The latest technology of Oticon’s new hearing aids gives better sound supports in outdoor and noisy listening situations. It allows better speech understanding and listening attention with less effort. Consider doing a risk-free trial to discover the difference before deciding whether to upgrade.
A large percentage of the cost is due to the amount of research and development needed to continually improve the technology that powers your hearing aid. These days, advanced technology uses digital software to enable the filtering of unwanted background noise and enhance speech and environmental sounds. Moreover, hearing aids are often customised to ensure they correct your specific hearing issues and meet your comfort preferences and lifestyle requirements.
Hearing aids are registered as a medical device by Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority (HSA). Many “hearing aids” sold online are not actually hearing aids but Personal Sound Amplification Products (PSAP) which are not registered as medical devices. They often provide sub-standard general amplification and often do not work very well as compared to professionally prescribed and fitted hearing aids. These devices may further damage the hearing system if it is overly amplified without proper adjustment and assessment.
Additionally, a hearing care professional is not physically available to offer any assistance for prescription and fitting, so there is no way it can be adjusted according to the user’s hearing level. If you go to a clinic, there will be:
No, it is currently not available in hospitals and in private hearing care settings. That is why Oticon is offering a discount of up to $1,500 for a new pair of hearing aids if you bring in your old ones.
Hearing aids will not worsen tinnitus. In fact, it may help to decrease the effect of tinnitus. There is also a feature within Oticon’s hearing aids to reduce the effect of tinnitus via sound masking and relaxation. Consult with our audiologists or audiometricians for advice tailored to your condition.
Excessive ear wax in the ear canal will affect the transmission of sound from the hearing aids to the ear. The wax buildup will also clog the output of the hearing aid causing the sound to be weak, distorted or non-existent. This is one of the leading causes of hearing aid repair. Thus to prevent this, it is advisable to clean your hearing aids daily.
