If you can’t remember the last time you had your ears checked for a build-up of ear wax or any other issues, it may be time to book your free hearing check-up with Alderley Hearing Solutions.
We provide audiology support and hearing care solutions across Cheshire and the North-West, with practices in Alderley Edge, Macclesfield, Stockton Heath and Hale. We understand that better hearing can significantly improve your communication skills and quality of life, which is why our audiologists prioritise finding the right hearing solutions for you.
We check for a range of other hearing problems such as congestion, retracted eardrums, infections, earwax and more. Most ear problems are easily treatable once they are identified. Catching any issues early on can also prevent any issues from worsening, such as hearing loss.
Our free hearing test involves finding out how loudly you hear different frequencies. Different parts of speech arise at different frequencies. The result of your test shows whether there are any parts of the speech which you struggle hearing. The test is non-invasive and simple. We ask you to sit in a sound booth and press a button every time you hear a tone.
We can also provide you with your hearing test result (audiogram). This can be part of the criteria in certain job applications as part of a medical check, for example, a pilot’s license or for a benchmark related to industrial noise exposure. The test can determine whether you would benefit from a hearing aid.
We can also test your hearing at home as well at our branches.
We stock and supply a wide variety of hearing aids and speech enhancers. As we are independent hearing specialists, we are familiar with all the makes and current models in the market place. We can provide you with the latest hearing aid technology, such as rechargeable and invisible hearing aids. Our neutral position enables us to provide unbiased advice and guidance on the best product for hearing aid users, at the best price.
As well as new hearing aids, we can also supply ear moulds, swim plugs, shooting and hunting earplugs, broadcaster’s ear tips, and musician’s attenuators.
Hearing Aid Programming
Once we’ve been able to determine the most appropriate hearing aid for your hearing needs, we can decide on the software and programming. Hearing aids are the hardware and they need the correct software for the user to be able to hear perfectly. There is no hearing aid which works perfectly for everybody. The hearing aid itself and software need to be programmed to the user’s individual prescription and needs. Our knowledgeable and dedicated audiologists are able to refine the programming according to your specific needs.
We understand that a “standard fit” can be significantly improved on and this is what we specialise in.
