Products for people with hearing loss and tinnitus

Please install the Flash Plugin If you or someone you know is deaf or has a hearing loss you’ll be amazed by how many ingenious products there are available. There are hundreds of clever devices to help you maintain your independence and carry on doing all the things you love, including:

Some of the products help you get the most from your hearing aid, while others can provide assistance in situations where hearing aids are not so effective, such as listening in crowded areas, or at a distance. Of course there’s also lots of equipment for people who are profoundly deaf.

FREE equipment may be available

Your local social service department may provide some products free of charge so it’s worth checking with them to see what’s available. Some fire services offer free smoke alarms to people who are deaf or hard of hearing too.

Why buy from us?

Our position is unique. We are the only national charity with a full range of products for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, so we are an ideal source for clear, impartial advice. Buying from a charity like us also means that any surplus funds help support our wider work with people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

So we understand that you may need to try different products before you find the ideal solution. The vast majority of our products can be returned within 28 days, as long as they are in ‘as new’ condition and returned with their original packaging.
