If your hearing aid is faulty, we will send it to the Hearing Aid Manufacturer where it will be repaired. This usually takes no more than 3 working days.
We suggest that you have your hearing aids serviced on an annual basis. This will entail a clean and check and possible repair if needs be. If the hearing aid is under warranty, the service will be done free of charge. If it needs servicing when out of the warranty, there will be a charge. This will be communicated with you before anything is done. Hearing aids generally hold a two to three year warranty and a one year International warranty.

9. Custom-Made Ear Protection
Customised Ear Plugs can be made for noisy environments, shooting, motorcycling, sleeping and swimming to name a few.
Noise plugs: Noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss today and it is therefore crucial that one wears hearing protection, i.e. ear plugs when being exposed to noise. Not only are those exposed to noise in the mining or engineering fields at risk, but so are those who listen to their iPods all day as well as those who regularly attend music concerts.
Sleep plugs: Do you battle to sleep because of someone snoring or the neighbour’s dogs barking? These customized sleep plugs are soft and comfortable so that you can have a brilliant nights rest.
Swim plugs: Children and often adults, experience recurrent ear infections when they are exposed to water. If you or your child swim and experience this problem, swim plugs will prevent this from happening.
