The complex and comprehensive process of hearing assessments requires the latest technology in audiology equipment. As a clinic that focuses 100% on hearing we are always investing and introducing state of the art technology to ensure that we can select the correct hearing path for you. Here are just some of the systems that we have in place and we welcome a visit to any of our clinics in Farnham Common, Henley-on-Thames and Marlow to review the latest testing equipment.

Our clinics are fully equipped with the latest cutting edge testing facilities, thus enabling us to carry out entirely accurate hearing assessments, and consequently advise on the best possible solution, should a client wish to proceed with our recommendation. We offer hearing tests at our hearing clinics in confidential surrounding with appointments to match your lifestyle. Clients often wish to have a hearing test online, in the privacy of their own homes, to assess potential hearing loss before coming to see us.

Digital Scanning

At both our practices we take custom ear impressions using the innovative Otoscan 3D ear scanner. We are one the few independent hearing care professionals in the Thames Valley with this equipment which provides deeper scans than traditional impression material, with efficient digital accuracy, recording ear differences when the jaw is open and closed, giving vital information for a better fit. These scans will then be kept on our system for future reference and can be used to create in-the-ear custom shells and hearing devices, as well as sleep or swim moulds.

Device Testing


Hearing devices are complex computers enclosed in the smallest possible size to fit in and around your ears. With integral and replaceable batteries and filters, like any technological equipment they need checking, servicing and testing.

At our clinics we are quipped with the best testing equipment to ensure that your hearing is not interrupted as we can fix and test in-house ensuring no delay caused by sending away to manufacturers and test facilities.

Wax Removal

Using the latest Otopront ENT Ear Wax Microsuction Treatment Unit we are able to investigate and remove wax from all ear canals. Ear wax microsuction is a procedure which uses gentle suction to remove excessive or troublesome ear wax. It is performed with the aid of a surgical microscope and a calibrated suction device, without the introduction of any materials or liquids. Ear wax microsuction is one of the safest, most effective, quickest and most comfortable methods of removing ear wax. Usually micro suction does not need pre-treatment with drops but two days of Earol (clinically treated olive oil) is the best preparation. One of our audiologists will examine your ear using a microscope (either fixed or with loupes glasses) and, using a fine low pressure suction device, safely remove the blockage. Also, using a video otoscope we will show you the condition of the ear before and after the treatment.
