Hearing Care

It is a fact of life that as you get older your hearing may deteriorate. It often happens slowly so you may not even be aware of it. You can organise a simple hearing test with our Hearing Aid Audiologists. At Yates & Suddell we offer value for money to all our customers and our hearing service which has been an integral part of what we do for over 40 years. 

Initial consultation

During the initial consultation we will discuss all areas which present you with difficulties in day to day life and we look at any related medical and health factors. We consider your general lifestyle and your specific needs. Following the hearing assessment we will recommend the best solution for you.

Free Hearing Assessment

  • Full examination of the outer ears, ear canals and eardrums.
  • Audiometric assessment to establish your hearing threshold and at what level you can hear across a frequency range.
  • Results and findings are explained simply. We recommend hearing instruments if needed based on a number of considerations including
    • The type of hearing loss exhibited
    • Lifestyle e.g. the instrument may need to cope with a number of difficult listening situations
    • Cosmetic appearance
    • Cost

Cost

Hearing aid prices can vary and reflect the difference in features, design and performance. During your hearing test you will be able to discuss your hearing needs with your audiologist. The type of loss you have coupled with your lifestyle and specific requirements will help govern the cost of the hearing aid.

Wax removal service

At Yates & Suddell we specialise in the micro suction technique of removing ear blockages. This is generally accepted to be the safest and most effective method of wax removal. It is completely syringe free with no need for weeks of softening with oil, with the procedure only taking a few minutes for each ear. Wax removal is priced at just £40 for one ear, £60 for both.

All brands repair service

Whether you purchased your hearing aid from us or not we will endeavour to repair it should it fail for any reason. All hearing aids purchased from Yates & Suddell are covered by at least a two year warranty. If your hearing aid is out of warranty, or if you purchased it from elsewhere the price of repair starts at just £95, and we aim to get your hearing aid back to you in 10-14 days.
