  • Hi,

    I'm Nicole, I am creating a practical decoration piece to disguise a BTE hearing aid and for this to become successful, I require honest opinion about my idea in itself and what designs I should incorporate into this project. I would be honored if you took your time to fill out this survey I have created in order to make this as successful as possible.

    Thank you, 

    Nicole Kohhantsuk.

  • As JaneLouise1 suggests, both The Hearing Company and Specsavers would seem to be good places to start. They are fairly well spread nationally so you'll find a branch close enough to you, they have a bricks-and-mortar presence, and they seem happy to publish all their prices so that you can research beforehand. Try an independent audiologist too, so long as they have a physical presence close to you.

  • Hi Anand

    We have arrange of factsheets and leaflets relating to hearing aids which you may find useful.

    When purchasing hearing aids we would always recommend visiting multiple retailers to see what they are able to offer you. It is also very important to discuss with them a trial period so you can ensure that the hearing aid they are recommending to you is suitable for your needs. If the retail in confident in their recommendation a trial period should not be an issue.

    You can also use our Locate and Rate tool on our website to find retailers near you.

    All the best

  • The very basic in the ear HAs cost around £2200 from my experience. What's your reason for wanting in the ear HAs?
