You may be having trouble hearing what people are saying – or are starting to miss out on sounds you once heard – but you’re not sure you’re ready to wear a hearing aid yet. That’s where a personal hearing amplifier may help.
If you want to hear better but aren’t sure you’re ready for a hearing aid, there are options in the form of personal hearing amplifiers. You might have seen something about the XTM or even Starkey’s very capable AMP®.
We recommend the AMP, a hearing solution so tiny it fits invisibly in your ear canal where no one can see it (unless they look really, really closely). It’s comfortable and is designed specifically for first-time hearing solution users.
The AMP fits snugly in your ear canal, so no one but you will know it’s there. It’s comfortable, removable, and available over the counter for just $295 per ear.
While some providers will sell personal amplifiers without an assessment, at Clarity we insist on assessing your hearing before providing any hearing device. This is to ensure that the device is audiologically appropriate for your hearing loss and outcomes achieved are congruent with the assessment results. We will then also set up the AMP for your hearing loss before you leave the clinic. This assessment and setup of up to two AMPs is at a cost of $150.
You can take it home and modify the settings later as well using online software.
You can also rest assured then that your hearing loss doesn’t require a more capable hearing device.
The Starkey AMP is a basic hearing amplifier, not a hearing aid. Like all personal amplifiers, this means that it is a one size fits all device with limited adjustments available. This makes it suitable for initial mild hearing loss to assist in those situations where you just need a little more sound in your life. Be aware though that your hearing loss deteriorates over time and there will come a point when you may require proper hearing aids.
As this is an over the counter hearing amplifier and not a hearing aid, while there is a 1 year warranty on the product, sales are final and no refunds are offered. If you do wish to return the AMPs we can credit the costs towards hearing aids.
If you like the look of the AMP contact us today to find out more.
