Hearing aid FAQs

1. How much do hearing aids cost?

Our hearing aids start from just £345 per aid and £495 per pair, with over 200 different hearing aids in the range. The right hearing aid for you will depend on a number of factors, most importantly your level of hearing loss. To find out about a range of hearing aids that could suit you, book a free hearing test online at your local Boots Hearingcare centre or call 0845 270 1600.

2. What does a hearing aid do?

Very simply put, a hearing aid amplifies sound to help people with hearing loss hear the sounds around them. Today’s hearing aids are sophisticated devices that can amplify and clarify sounds you want to hear, like speech, without amplifying the background noise. Digital hearing aids can also be programmed to suit your individual hearing loss and listening situations to offer the best support. To learn more about how they work visit our hearing aid section.

3. Do I need a hearing aid for both ears?

That really depends on your hearing loss. If you have a hearing loss in both ears then it makes sense to wear a hearing aid that ‘treats’ each ear. A free hearing test at Boots will help you discover if you have a hearing loss, and if so, if it’s present in one or both ears. Book a free hearing test online or call 0845 270 1600.

4. How long do hearing aids last?

How long your hearing aid will last depends on a number of factors; including the style of hearing aid you choose and how well you care for it (regular cleaning of your hearing aid and attending regular hearing aid checkups can help keep it working better for longer). For your peace of mind, all the hearing aids at Boots come with a 2 or 5 year guarantee.

5. How do I know which type of hearing aid is best for me?

If following your hearing test we find you would benefit from a hearing aid, your hearing aid audiologist will discuss a range of hearing aids and their features that could help your specific hearing loss. You also need to consider the size and style of hearing aid that you are looking for.
