Frequently asked questions

I sent my hearing aids off for repair, what will happen to them?
If you were due to collect repaired hearing aids, these will be returned to you. There is no need to go into store to collect.

If you have recently returned your hearing aids to store to be sent away for repair, if they haven’t already been sent to the manufacturer, they will be returned to you for safe keeping. Information on contacting our Customer Care Team to discuss next steps will be included with your hearing aids.

Our Customer Care Team are all working from home and look forward to assisting you as best as they can at this challenging time.

If you have Phonak, Starkey, AudioNova or Widex hearing aids which have already been sent for repair, these will be posted back to you as soon as the repair has been completed.

You can use it to verify any hearing loss or hearing-related issue. The test is for indicative purposes and isn't to replace a properly thorough examination by a professional hearing specialist.
