Hearing aid repair savings

I have information for those who wear hearing aids.

30 August 2017

One of mine decided that it was too tired to work. I tried to manage without it for a while but took it back to ‘my hearing aid shop’. While it was sent to be fixed for an estimated €400, I was lent a replacement. Within four days back came the response: as it is over five years old we cannot repair it!

I found The Connexion and inside an advert for repairing hearing aids. This company (www.hars.co.uk) mends them for profoundly deaf children in the UK. I sent off my faulty aid and it was mended in just over a week for less than £100.

To replace my aids would have cost up to €2,000.

I am hoping that this reaches others who are deaf or hard of hearing as to replace the tiny gadgets which we put in our ears is extremely expensive, and will come as an enormous surprise!
