NHS Hearing Aid Technology

Hi. I have used a private digital aid for a few years. Knowing the NHS aids are much improved I decided to give the NHS a try. I saw the Audiologist today and have been prescribed a Siemens BTE Impact L model which I should pick up in a month. I believe this aid has been available for about 3 years. How up to date is the technology used in the Impact L; or has it been superseded? Many thanks. Brian


Hi BrianThank you for your question. As you rightly state, the Siemens Impact Pro model has been available for just over 3 years now which makes the technology approximately 4 years old. Whilst they are still very good hearing aids, technology has obviously moved on and the Impact Pro is now classed as a mid-range product.
