"These aids are not inexpensive - but worth every penny!"
I am on my second set of hearing aids now. The first ones were (Phonak) (one of the top name brands) and at the time probably the best available. They had a lot of clever features and it was obvious they were picking out sounds from the environment which I would not have heard otherwise.
When the new Oticon Opn1 came out, with above average online reviews, Simon let me trial these for a couple of weeks.
My family and friends quickly noticed how much ‘better connected and involved’ I was with these and I certainly felt much more confident in company. In particular the ‘restaurant experience’ was much better than with my previous aids.
At the end of my trial period I gave my previous aids another chance but within a few days I had asked Simon to order some Opn 1s for me.
These aids are not inexpensive - but worth every penny!
I would just like to mention that I have been very pleased with the care and attention I have had from Clarity Hearing over the past few years.
Peter Gilfedder, Christchurch.
"I have returned to the world..."
"I have to write to tell you I am absolutely delighted with my hearing aids. I have now used them for six weeks and feel I have returned to the world where I am able to participate in any conversation, including those within noisey background situations where previously, I felt isolated or have chosen to avoid.
A bonus is that I am now able to hear, for the first time, all the many orchestral voices that my electronic piano can produce.
Your after sales care and attention to detail in making minor and effective adjustments to the settings of the aids is very impressive and appreciated.
Many, many thanks for delivering a life changing product and service in a friendly reassuring manner."
PS The aids have become such a part of me that one night I went to bed still wearing them!!!
John Hedger, Ringwood
"the best decision I ever made..."
"Getting my hearing aids was the best decision I ever made. I just wish I'd done it 10 years ago. The people at Clarity are so helpful and the after sales service is excellent"
Mr Goodyear, Christchurch
"I was able to turn the volume of the TV down from 99 to 55!.."
"I came in contact with Clarity when I needed my ears syringed out before going on holiday. Heather took great care to explain about my narrowed ear canals even showing me the video of my inner ear on her computer before completing the cleaning. During this first consultation I asked Heather if she might be able to improve my hearing as my NHS aids were 5 years old. On a second visit to Clarity Heather measured my hearing and used the data to program 2 types of hearing aid for me to try out. I chose the top of the range Phonak aids with 20 channels of sound input and 5 different programmes. The two aids communicate wirelessly to give the best results. The aids arrived about a week later. The first thing I noticed was that they were smaller and the correct colour to be very discrete behind my ears. After programming and fitting I began a 3 week free of charge trial. The difference was immediately noticeable as I was able to hear the seat belt alarm in my car for the first time. On getting home a hug with my wife without feedback and I was able to turn the volume of the TV down from 99 to 55! In social situations at the pub or a noisy dinner party I was able to hear what was going on much more clearly and able to join in the fun. At work the aids make hearing above background noise much easier. After about 10 days I went back to Clarity and Heather was able to check the performance and optimise my hearing aid settings. Although a significant investment I had already decided to purchase the aids without needing the remainder of the trial period. At the time of writing this I continue to be delighted with my new aids and can vouch for the benefit of latest technology together with Heather’s caring and sensitive approach to helping optimise your hearing."

"I should have seen you much earlier.."
"Just to say a simple, thank you to both of you, for making me hear again.
It is now nine months since you fitted me with a Phonak hearing aid and I am happy and grateful to you for making things possible. You have also been kind and understanding which helped a lot. (I should have seen you much earlier!)"
Mr W Fiebig
"nothing is too much trouble.."
"First class family business. Having suffered with hearing loss for over 20 years this is the most helpful outfit I have encountered.
Friendly helpful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Would unreservedly recommend to anyone needing help with hearing loss."
"the day that changed my life.."
"I didn’t have a hearing problem, after all, how could I be expected to hear my wife talking to me when she was in the back room and I was in the front room.
Then we heard about Clarity Hearing Solutions and my wife persuaded me to go along and have a hearing test. That was the day that changed my life. I took the hearing test, was shown several types of hearing aids and chose the one that suited me. So if you have any doubts about your hearing, go along to Clarity Hearing Solutions and let them change your life too."
"saving me from shouting.."
"I have to say thank you to Simon and the staff at Christchurch. It was so frustrating watching my husband struggling to hear and refusing to accept there was a problem. The TV and radio were always very loud, the door bell was missed and the answer phone kicked in regularly as he couldn’t hear it.
Then he had a test which proved there was a problem and especially with high pitch sounds. Now the TV and radio are at a normal volume, he hears the door bell and answers the phone.
If a problem occurs, Simon always fits him in so he can rectify it or do an adjustment. The on going care is marvellous and we are treated as friends not clients.
So thank you for saving me from shouting and for giving my husband quality of life."
"Congratulations. I was delighted to read in the Dorset Magazine of your Phonak award. You rightly deserve it for the excellent service you give your customers."
Mrs Elliott. (Ferndown)
"..I've got my Dad back"
"Since Dad came to see you and you fitted his neat little hearing aids the whole family has noticed the difference. We don't have to keep repeating ourselves and Dad is much more relaxed in our company. It's made such a difference I just wanted to say thanks - I've got my Dad back"
Daughter of Mr. J. Howes. (Bournemouth)
"..a life changing product"
"I have to write to tell you I am absolutely delighted with my hearing aids.

"..I have been delighted"
"I would thoroughly recommend the team at Clarity Hearing Solutions. Having resisted wearing a hearing aid I have been delighted with the device fitted by Simon Cowell and wear it constantly. His initial expertise and advice has been supplemented by friendly and efficient follow up, which is always easily accessible."
Ann Davis. (Basingstoke)
"..the results are staggering"
"Thank goodness for Clarity Hearing. Friendly and professional service throughout and the results are staggering! TV is a delight now that I have the ComPilot link set up - no more lost dialogue in dramas. My wife is also delighted now that she doesn't have to shout, interpret or cower at the back of the room when the TV is on. The automatic switch to music is fantastic and the zooming control in noisy situations has transformed my day. Should have done it years ago!"
Mr. Cross. (Christchurch)
"I thought crickets were extinct"
"It's great that I can now take an active part in family conversations but it's also other sounds which have been such a joy. Until I had my new hearing aids I thought crickets were extinct!
Thank you so much for making such a difference"
Mr. D. (Southbourne)
"It is wonderful to hear the birds"
"I am filled with gratitude for the help and attention that I received with my hearing. It is wonderful to hear the birds, and has made a great change to my life especiallly social wise. Once again thank you."
Mrs. M. Smith (Christchurch)
"The improvement in my tinnitus has been dramatic."
"The British Tinnitus Association reported that many tinnitus sufferers had noticed a significant reduction in their symptoms once they had addressed their hearing loss. So, I decided to 'give it a go' and can only say that the improvement has been dramatic."
Mrs. K. (Christchurch)
"Such a positive difference"
"I should like to thank Simon for his tremendous care, kindness and professionalism in ensuring that I now have a set of hearing aids, which have made such a positive difference to my lifestyle and have restored some of my confidence. Thank you for persevering."
E. Smith. (Ringwood)
"I can once again enjoy my music"
"When I went home I was so amazed I could hear birds in the garden and various other noises around that I had not heard in a long time. I can now even hear the Grandfather clock ticking, the breadmaker bleeping at the end of a cycle, all these noises I could not hear before!
One of the most beneficial aspects is I can once again enjoy my music, I can now hear each individual instrument being played, before it was a shambles and one loud 'noise'.....One very satisfied customer!"
Mr. T. Longworth (Verwood)
"A very happy woman.."
"For some time the hearing aids I had didn't do their job and then I saw an advert for Clarity Hearing which appealed to me. I am now a very happy woman and can even hear my kitchen clock ticking. I am so pleased I responded to the advert and can thorouhly recommend anyone to try them."
"So pleased with my hearing aids"
"I'm so pleased with my hearing aids, they don't squeak, I can hear TV, the phone, the front door bell and people talking. I've had 3 previous sets of aids from other companies but these are the best I've ever had and the cheapest. The service and people are so friendly and helpful."
"One of the best decisions you will make."
"Hearing has been a struggle with difficulty taking part in conversation with more than one or two people, hoping that the correct responses are made or just smiling optimisticly. The visit to Clarity has changed all that completely. Now I can take part in a room full of talking people and contribute as well. Speaking on the telephone, going to the theatre and cinema are now once again a joy. Inserting the hearing aids each morning is second nature and they are almost invisible. Anyone who has doubts please dispel these, it will be one of the best decisions you will make."
"Wow! What great service from the dedicated team at clarity hearing solutions. Right from the first appointment through to the follow ups nothing was too much trouble. I was treated with respect and dignity, all with a smile and great sense of humour, in fact much better than some big high street shops that sell spectacles, hearing aids etc etc. I would recommend this team to anyone that may be a bit nervous of trying something new."
"I wouldn't be without them now."
"I wouldn't be without them now. Thank goodness we went to the Craft Fair and made the appointment for a hearing test."
Jo K. (Christchurch)
"I no longer have to continually say "pardon?""
"I had NHS aids for many years, they weren't giving me what I wanted in many situations, but particularly at church when I wanted to hear the prayers for people. My day to day activities were limited.
The new hearing aids are lovely to wear and have done all that I wanted them to do, I no longer have to continually say "pardon".
They have led to a complete improvement in all aspects and I am very happy with the testing procedure and the people at Clarity Hearing Solutions. They are always courteous and willing."
Mr. K. Carpenter (Christchurch)
"A new world of hearing"
"I am so pleased that I decided to go to Clarity for my hearing, very impressed by the high level of service and care. My family and friends are very pleased, that I now can enjoy a conversation with them all, it has opened up a new world of hearing. I know now what I have been missing. I only wish I had gone to Clarity earlier. Once again my sincere thanks for your patience."
Mr R.Johnson (Christchurch)
