Models & Styles

Most of the models of audifier and hearing aid shown here are advanced computers, with electronics so cleverly miniaturised that some of them can be worn completely invisibly.

Whilst others pack in additional technologies that take them beyond mere enhancement, giving those who use them advantages far beyond that of natural hearing – such as connectivity to smart phones and other technologies.

All the models and styles shown here are available through us, and our independence and industry connections mean we can often track down other models and technologies should you need something specific.
