Why are The Hearing Experts hearing aid prices so much lower than the high street?
We are an online audiology company, which means we do not have a physical store that can be visited in person. This allows us to pass on discounts directly to our customers as we have very little overheads to manage, and also means that if you should need to contact us it should be done by Live Chat / E-Mail / Phone / Mailing address details at the bottom of this page.
What if I buy a hearing aid and I do not notice a difference straight away?
It takes time for your brain to adjust to hearing sounds that you may not have heard for a while, so give yourself a chance to get used to your hearing aid. If it still doesn’t help we will work with you to adjust it to your environment, or you can try another one of our hearing aids that may suit you better for a further 30 days. If you are still dissatisfied at this point then you can use your, no quibble, 30 day money back guarantee. (See our Returns Policy).
