‘I have bought privately before and am very wary’
You need to explore your options very carefully. A FREE TRIAL is what you need.

‘I think private hearing aids and batteries cost a fortune?’
Not necessarily. Have a look at the audiology companies online that list complete product price lists.
For batteries etc, you should buy them on an accessory website: such as

Keep an open mind. In my experience, consumers who ask for a specific make have usually been unduly influenced by a less-than-independent opinion and over-the-top marketing.

Which magazine’s articles in 2014 / 2016 / 2018 found that independent practices were the most likely to give you the best overall service.

These hearing aid reviews has been compiled by me, Robert Donnan, with a little help from our 4 main contributors (who are all patients of mine).

Hopefully, we can help debunk some over-marketing of hearing aids, and give you, the potential hearing aid consumer a better insight into the hearing aid market.
