At James Hearing, we specialise in tinnitus treatment and rehabilitation. Clients are usually referred by ENT consultants, however, self-referrals are welcome to visit our practice. As no two people’s experience of tinnitus are the same, our initial consultation focuses on you, your tinnitus, the impact tinnitus is having on your quality of life and how we can alleviate your symptoms.

Our custom-fit solutions are moulded to your individual ear shape for maximum comfort and safety.

We can arrange to come and see you at home at a time that is convenient for you. We can perform an accurate hearing test in the comfort of your own home, let you try out a hearing aid and help you choose the right one for your specific hearing loss.
A hearing test at home is quick and easy, it normally takes around ten minutes to do the actual test, once we’ve done that we can assess your hearing loss and determine what type of hearing aid would work best for you.

What is Ear Wax?
Ear wax is a natural mix of secretions and dead skin found in the ear. It is not a bad thing; it helps to protect the ear against dust, dirt and bacteria. Ear wax (Cerumen to be official!) is made up of skin cells, dust and oily secretions from the sebaceous and ceruminous glands in the ear canal. The secretions lubricate the ear canal and prevent it from becoming too dry. The amount and type of ear wax changes from person to person based on diet, age and other factors.
What Can Cause a Buildup of Ear Wax?
- Over-production of ear wax
- Narrow ear canals
- Overly hairy ear canals
- Dry earwax, (not much moisture in the secretion as you get older)
- Swimmers ear
- A tight or hard ear canal bend
- Over-use of cotton buds when cleaning your ears
- Wearing hearing aids (sometimes can cause ear wax build up)
- Wearing in-ear headphones (same as above)
