Hearing Tests

Do you struggle to hear the TV?

Have family & friends been commenting on your hearing?

Are you straining to hear in social situations?

If any of the above applies to you then we can help with a free hearing test, whether your hearing loss is sudden or gradual, you can book an appointment with our Audiologists who can complete the test and explain the results to you fully-no jargon!

These results are then yours to keep, you may decide to go elsewhere for your hearing aids or we can speak to you about next options with us.

Due to our team having worked in the NHS and in the private sector, they can provide non-bias advice there and then on which is the best path for you to go down.

Our Audiologists/Hearing Aid Dispensers are specifically trained in how to find the best hearing solutions for you.

These fantastic hearing aids allow you the freedom to live your life without compromising on comfort. Along with clear, rich sound they are also sleek and now rechargeable (certain models) giving you clarity when you need it most.


Available in a variety of colours and available for children or adults, everyone can enjoy a life full of crystal-clear sound every day!


Appointments take around 60+ minutes so we can give you our full attention and the whole process will be explained to you by a friendly NHS trained Audiologist, so if you are nervous or unsure on what to expect, don't worry, you are in good hands.

"Cannot fault the care and attention given by the audiologist/ microsuction practitioner Emma Smith, (at their Bournemouth clinic on Mondays) whose attention to detail, understanding and friendly nature made for relaxed appointments each visit. Everything was clearly explained and at no time did I feel pressureized to purchase new hearing aids from them following an initial hearing test appointment. However I did, their prices were very competitive to high street outets, but it was the attention to giving optimal hearing that swung it. I had several visits 1) ears cleaned, (this was an extra charge) & having read their literature decided on a pair to buy, I was given a sample to wear for 2 weeks 2) adjustments to sound levels as required 3) reassement of sample aids levels and readjustment to suit my lifestyle, inner ear moulds made for new aids 4) the purchased pair given & adjusted to required volume levels 4) follow up of new hearing aids usability. Superb service. I have no hesitatation recommending this company."
