Signs you might need a hearing test

Hearing loss often occurs gradually, making it hard to notice. Here are some signs that it might be time for a hearing test:

  • The TV is too loud for other members of your family.
  • You find it difficult to keep up with conversations when there’s background noise.
  • Chatting on the phone is tricky, even when the room is quiet.
  • You feel like people are mumbling, and you have to ask them to repeat themselves.
  • Often, it’s your loved ones who notice hearing loss before you do. They might hint that you’re finding it difficult to hear.

At Boots Hearingcare, our hearing tests are completely free and only take 15 minutes book online or call us on 01 5060164 to book your appointment.

The importance of regular hearing tests

One in twelve people in Ireland is affected by hearing loss. For those over 50, we recommend having a hearing test every two years to monitor your hearing health and detect any changes early.
