Sound advice on tinnitus

Keen traveller William Allan from Ayr knew he needed to seek help after struggling to hear a tour guide on a dream trip to China.

Now, the 57-year-old’s hearing has improved and his tinnitus symptoms have eased thanks to Amplifon. William and wife Valerie were completing their bucket list of places to visit when he became aware of his problem. Upon their return, he booked an appointment with Amplifon, and was impressed with what he found.

“I would recommend Amplifon to anyone who has any kind of problems with their hearing, including tinnitus,”

“My audiologist, Andrew, spent time finding out about my background,” he says. “We went through everything in detail and he answered all of my questions. I’d also been suffering from a complex form of tinnitus so he recommended a pair of hearing aids that would suit.”

During a free trial of his hearing aids he found that his hearing was transformed. The aids have special settings that help soothe the symptoms, including tones he can play when the tinnitus becomes unbearable.

“I don’t suffer from tinnitus as much now, which means I can sleep better at night,” says William. “It couldn’t have been any better and it showed that these were the hearing aids for me.” Whilst his globe-trotting has benefitted, William’s new hearing aids also allow him to take part in conversations in noisy rooms, which he struggled with before. He is now also able to watch television without the volume turned up to the max.

“I would recommend Amplifon to anyone who has any kind of problems with their hearing, including tinnitus,” he adds.

At Amplifon we offer a free hearing test and trial, Book today.
