Using the latest hearing device technology gives us the peace of mind that we are doing the right thing for our Patients and achieving the best hearing results.

Investing in the best technology for your hearing needs.

There are several things to take into consideration when picking the correct hearing solution: Your hearing loss, what instrument will best fit your prescription both now and in the future? Lifestyle, how will the technology to hear in the different listening environments you find yourself in? And budget, what you are willing to spend to fulfil your hearing needs.

We are here to help you find your ideal hearing instrument solution. We spend time finding out what your hearing goals are to offer you the best solutions.


At Viney Hearing we work with the Worlds leading hearing instrument manufacturers to provide everyone with the most discreet hearing instruments possible. Now even some of the most severe hearing losses can be catered for with invisible technology whether it be IIC, CIC or RITE.


Channels allow us to adjust the hearing instrument prescription so the more channels the more accurately the hearing aid can be prescribed to your hearing loss giving a clearer and more natural sound.


Programmes allow you to use your favourite hearing settings for different listening situations. These programmes can be controlled via the instrument, your mobile phone or a remote control for discreet use. Hearing instruments work automatically to reduce background noise and enhance speech but programmes allow you to control this further to enhance your listening pleasure for, watching TV, listening to music, using the phone, hearing in crowds and parties. Your hearing, your control.


When fitting hearing instruments to a hearing loss we really want to have a level of power in reserve so that as the hearing loss changes over the years we can adjust the prescription. This means that the more power that we have in reserve, the instruments will be more flexible to suit any changes in prescription needs. Test and recalibrations are part of the aftercare service we offer to make sure your hearing instruments are always giving you the best level of hearing possible.

Noise Reduction

In order to hear clearly in noisy environments, the hearing instruments will automatically respond to changing conditions and reduce the levels of background noise to allow you to still hear the speech and join in conversation. The more efficient the hearing instrument’s noise reduction system the better your hearing will be in complex listening situations. If you regularly find yourself in noisy environments such as at work, restaurants, meetings, social gatherings, sports then you will need to invest in instruments with a good noise reduction technology.

Speech guard

When your hearing deteriorates clarity of speech becomes the biggest problem, struggling to hear certain consonants means beginning and ends of words become muffled making even normal conversation a strain. Speech guard technology is the latest advance in digital hearing aids, the instruments are able to detect the specific wave lengths relating to speech and enhance them further, separating them from the other noise.

Bluetooth/ Wireless technology

Most current hearing instrument technology has wireless capabilities. This enables the patient to connect their instruments to a variety of streaming devices such as television, home phone, mobile phone, ipads, MP3 and much more. Wireless hearing aids are sophisticated, high performance instruments that deliver a precise and natural listening experience to make sounds clearer in every listening environment.
