  • They Are Really That Small...

    The Shetlands was my holiday destination this summer. Yes, I see your raised eyebrows…but it proved to be a great week. We struck it lucky with the weather, and had 6 days straight with no rain, and sunny blue skies instead – quite unheard of we gathered from the weather-hardened...
  • Amplified Mobile Phones – Or Are They?

    We can confidently state that we sell a range of mobile phones that are significantly louder than the normal high street equivalents. In fact, we would go so far as to say that they have greater levels of amplification than most of the iPhones and Blackberry’s of this world. But...
  • I’m Not An Idiot, I’m Being Attacked!!

    My short trip to Cornwall was notable for all the usual things – variable weather, good food, late nights, lazy mornings but in addition twice being attacked by animals was added to the list. The first completely unprovoked assault was being stung by a wasp while walking the South Coast...
  • Getting Things Just Right… Exactly Right

    A couple of months ago there was a wedding in Micheldever and an enterprising soul (Marrion HearingDirect’s one time bookkeeper) saw the opportunity of maximising the use of the marquee that was going to be the reception venue. So on the Saturday there was a beautiful church wedding followed by...

  • When Is A Hearing Aid A Hearing Aid?

    HD 91 Digital Hearing Aid At HearingDirect we send out a number of different parcels of varying sizes, shapes and weights.  I call them parcels as I was raised in the era when anything that was larger than a letter going through the Royal Mail was wrapped in brown paper...
  • Everything Including The Kitchen Sink...

    Two weeks ago I finally got to use our new sink at home. Perhaps not one of life’s most significant milestones; but for me it meant the finishing touches were happening at last in the new kitchen that we’ve been working on for months, putting an end to the daily...
  • A Change For The Better (Get Your Cheque Book Out!)

    A changing world we live in – no sooner do you feel you have come to understand the world and technology around you then somebody or bodies decide to change it for the ‘better’. Often at the bemusement of the very people whose lives are to be improved by these...
  • The Stigma Of Wearing Hearing Aids

    The stigma of wearing hearing aids recently came to light when the New York City Police Department decided to ban the use of hearing aids by its officers. Even by those whose hearing loss was caused in the line of duty through noise exposure (such as when patrolling the noisy...
  • Your Favourite Brand At Our Value For Money Prices

    Those close to me will vouch that I am not a particularly stylish man.  If they are generous they may claim that I dress for comfort.  I would not seek to defend myself and freely admit to not be out of the Beau Nash stable.  Beau Nash for anyone not...
