As Oticon entered the global market, they began to make tremendous contributions to the industry based on a forward-thinking approach backed with decades of experience.

My new hearing aids are wonderful and make me a part of the conversation with clarity, even in a crowded room. Hear! Hear! Many thanks!H. Rubenstein
NYHD changed the quality of my life! I have an acoustic neuroma which caused me to lose some hearing and have other hearing issues (ranges of sound). I thought nothing could help. But, so much progress has been made with hearing aid technology it’s unbelievable! Dr. Kasper and everyone at NYHD are so nice, professional and helpful. After going there, I discovered I was a candidate for a hearing aid. It’s tiny, it’s unnoticeable and it works GREAT! I am no longer pestering my family and friends by constantly asking “what did you say?”. I am enjoying concerts, plays and restaurants again and not missing a word. Thank you NYHD!A. D.
My experience with NYHD has been extremely positive. I am not only pleased with the type of hearing aid that she suggested but know that I will also have her support in the future should any problems arise. One positive outcome that was unexpected is the ability I now have to connect my TV, phone, and iPod touch to Bluetooth and make them hands free. If you suspect that hearing aids are in your future, I think you will be extremely pleased with NYHD.M.M.
