What to expect on the day.

Medical history

You will have an expert consultation with a highly experienced Audiologist. We will spend time discussing your symptoms, hearing history, exactly when and where you are having hearing difficulties, as well as other related issues such as tinnitus, sensitivity to noise, family history and noise exposure.

Ear examination

We will gently examine your ear canal thoroughly using our specialist video camera and display the picture for you to see (if you want to). We will be able to identify any obvious obstructions such as wax and identify any problems with the ear canal or eardrum.

The Hearing Test

Performed in our soundproof booth – this is a fully diagnostic hearing test, from which we can identify the exact nature, severity and cause of any hearing loss you may have.

Middle ear pressure test

Known as Tympanometry, this is a test of middle ear function. If it’s needed, Tympanometry can identify any negative pressure, congestion or fluid in the middle ear. It’s a quick and painless procedure that’s useful for picking up conditions like glue ear.

Understanding your results

Your Audiologist will give you a full and clear explanation of your test results with appropriate recommendations.
We believe it is incredibly important that the client understands their hearing loss and what affect it may have.

If we feel that hearing aids may be beneficial, we guide you through selecting the most suitable device based on:


We would discuss topics like choosing manufacturers, level of technology, whether or not you want the aids rechargeable, or with Bluetooth so you can stream phone calls, and more.


You may want custom made in-the-ear hearing aids. Some prefer hearing aids on top of ear to maximise discretion. These are all the types of variables we would discuss.

Value for money

We stock a range of products to suit every budget. We take pride in being able to provide you with the best value for money through our fitting procedure and unlimited aftercare service.


The performance of the hearing aid(s) has to be able to match your lifestyle, with regards to keeping up with communication needs. This helps us to find the technology to mirror your lifestyle.

I presented requesting removal of earwax blockage, but with the complication of a slight infection in my right ear. Tasha & Mike provided me with a friendly, professional and sensitive service achieving a good result. They gave guidance on getting treatment from my GP for the infection and on returning for further attention once that was over. Very happy with the service.

The service was absolutely brilliant. I have had issues with one of my ears since a child and have been unable to obtain regular support and service from the NHS. Tasha took a lot of time explaining what she could find, explaining clearly the inner workings, and I came away for the first time understanding about the ear and the issues I face and encounter. Tasha was clear, precise and reassuring. I have never received a better service in this kind of setting - The function to be able to use a camera in which the client can see what is being done is just absolutely gold. The reception staff equally are friendly and professional. It really was important to me to receive this level of service after so many issues beforehand - I really am thankful!For the money it costs it is well worth investing in, especially at current with health service waiting times.I have booked to go back!Thanks once again Tasha!

No waiting time for the appointment. Very thorough and friendly with the investigation in a bright, clean office in Clynderwen. Felt so at ease and was treated with respect and understanding due to my age. Initiated a follow up appointment and a referral to my GP.

A great experience having wax removed from both ears as I have never had it done with the suction method before. My appointment was on time and the lady was really friendly and gentle. It was interesting to be able to see inside my ears before and after the wax was removed.

I attended Hearing Aid Solutions Carmarthen for the 1st time today for ear wax removal & cannot recommend Martin highly enough! He was kind, friendly, patient & professional - he definitely knows what he’s doing. I have previously had ear wax removed by Furnace House surgery many years ago but the Doctors surgeries are no longer offering this service hence I went to Hearing Aid Solutions & it’s the best decision I’ve made - £80 for both ears, money well spent. Thank you Martin!
