Not sure about buying a hearing aid online? We keep the process straight-forward, and here's what happens:
Select which ear you wish to wear the hearing aid on (left / right / both); and the colour and add to basket. Check-out and purchase with Visa / Mastercard or PayPal (where there is a 'Pay-in-3' option for an interest-free 3 month split payment plan)
Your order will be posted directly to you via Royal Mail for a 30 day home trial. Everything you need to try the aid for this period is included.
Many customers have a copy of their audiogram (hearing test result on a graph) from an NHS appointment or from one of the high street stores and will email us a copy before ordering - email@example.com.
If the hearing aid is appropriate for the hearing loss, we use the audiogram results to program the initial settings of the hearing aid.
Dont worry if an audiogram is not available; you can begin with our standard setting – geared to suit a mild to moderate, mainly high frequency hearing loss. This is the type of hearing loss we commonly see in those with age-related or noise-induced hearing losses.
Another option is to complete the online hearing check, which, if completed as instructed, gives a reasonable estimate of someone’s middle and high frequency hearing: https://www.hearingdirect.com/pages/hearing-test.
If you wish for your online hearing check result to be used with your order you will need to let us know before or just after your order is placed.
Please talk to us if you need anything else regarding the set up further customised. We are real people, and would love to help provide the best possible starting point for you.
Once you've received the hearing aid it's a case of trying out the physical fit and the sound. If you need any adjustments, some can be done remotely if you've downloaded the Signia App – or we can reprogramme in house if the aid is posted back. Email or call us and we will help immediately or set up a time to discuss your requirements in more detail. If you choose to send the hearing aid back to us in the post for reprogramming we will extend your 30 day trial by a week to account for postage times.
If the sound or physical fit of the product is not to your satisfaction, our 30 day money back guarantee is a no quibble policy.
