  • (1888PressRelease) June 06, 2013 - Ben Mann, principal audiologist and business owner, comments "For hearing loss sufferers, conducting a hearing test in a sound proof booth is important but it does mean that the user cannot be confident that a new hearing aid will perform at its best when in the supermarket or car which are places where there are complex sounds all around. The Virtual Sound Environment (VSE) system installed at our new Upminster shop enables hearing tests to be personalised to realistic situations. The VSE enables comprehensive testing of how well an individual is able to process sound in a range of everyday listening scenarios under controlled, reproducible conditions. Using a VSE for performing listening tests makes it possible to test many aspects of hearing include: speech intelligibility, listening preference, annoyance, listening effort, and a range of cognitive factors, such as working memory and attention."

    Click Hearing's new Upminster Hearing Centre features a Virtual Sound Environment with the latest in surround sound technology. The shop is the first dedicated Hearing Centre in Upminster and a first for Click Hearing who previously where based in James Reed Opticians in Station Road. Click Hearing have run clinics across the region since 2001 in Upminster, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Epping, Harley Street and Redbridge gaining an excellent reputation for quality of service, impartial expert advice and excellent aftercare. Regular sponsors at local events such as the Killer Whales swimming galas, Upminster Cricket Club and Redbridge Swimming Club, Ben Mann comments, "I am delighted to open our first dedicated shop in Upminster, this has been a personal and business ambition as it enables us to take advantages of technology such as the VSE which enables us to bring the very best to our customers in Upminster."

    About hearing loss
    Complex acoustic environments are encountered frequently in everyday life, for example, in train stations, supermarkets and busy restaurants. People with normal hearing can usually communication without effort in these environments, but people with a hearing impairment often have difficulties, even when wearing hearing aids. Hearing loss sufferers can hear the voices in front of them, but have trouble in noisier (complex) surroundings. Using a VSE during the testing process and fitting helps the clinician and customer to better determine the level of need and programme digital hearing aids to their optimum to improve the performance of the device and comfort of the user.
