At House of Hearing we believe that everyone should have access to high quality audiological facilities at an affordable price that suits them. This is why we offer free* hearing health assessments, (which include a hearing test in addition to a full health check of your ears) in dedicated sound proofed consulting rooms with fully qualified Audiologists using the latest equipment.
We want you to feel that your hearing is in safe hands.
We know that recognising that you need to address your hearing issues can be a big decision and we are here to help.
We will do everything we can to understand what your challenges are and offer the best possible advice in the best possible environment. Our most commonly accessed services are ear wax removal, hearing tests, hearing aids and hearing protection.
We are experts in hearing and ears with a clinical team that amongst them have over 100 years of experience in the audiology profession.
All of our specialist clinicians are members of the British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists (BSHAA) and each are also registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), giving you and your family the peace of mind that you will only be seen by a fully qualified registered clinician.
House of Hearing was founded in 1969. It has come a long way since then, now employing 28 staff in 5 clinics across Scotland and the North East of England – Edinburgh, Galashiels, Morpeth, Perth and St Andrews.
If you or a loved one are unable to attend one of our clinics, please contact us to ask about our domiciliary visit service.
* tests for adults are free, however there is a charge for children's hearing tests. Please contact us to find out specific prices
"The quality of hearing aids is immeasurably better than those provided by the NHS. The care and service provided by House of Hearing has added greatly to my quality of life; in daily life, concerts, theatre, etc. I very much value the facility to 'drop-in' for checks as and when necessary."
"Regular visits to deal with the build up of wax in my ears has been of great help and given great comfort. The unexpected (to me) discovery of an infection and subsequent treatment by Melanie was very timely and avoided more serious consequences. Much impressed by friendly and helpful staff on all visits."
“At House of Hearing it is not only the friendliness and warmth of welcome that meets you at the door on every occasion, but the technical expertise of the audiologists. They deliver a professional audiology service with integrity and compassion and have dignity and respect at the heart of their business.
Thank you seems so inadequate, but all I can say is:
Thank you House of Hearing for letting me live my life.”
"I very highly recommend the House of Hearing. They are completely focussed on finding the best possible hearing aids for each client’s particular needs, and to this end nothing is too much trouble. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and one is made to feel part of the House of Hearing family. I can’t praise them highly enough, and in particular Louise, who couldn’t have done more for me”.
"Service and afterservice is great - very professional wax removal. Also very caring."
We've commissioned some research to find out more about people’s attitudes to hearing and how it impacts their lives.
There have been some exciting changes to our St Andrews clnic which we'd like to share with you
Living with hearing loss is not easy and even more so when a lockdown was imposed to help relieve the spread of Coronavirus back at the end of March. The lockdown created a more concentrated situation in which, even having a mild hearing loss the feelings of isolation and being cut off from loved ones was much more pronounced.
