Equipment

There are many types of equipment for people with all levels of hearing loss

Our leaflet Products to help with hearing loss and tinnitus is a good introduction to the equipment and products available that could make your life easier. Enjoying TV, film and the arts provides information about the equipment and services that can help when you watch TV or DVDs, listen to music or go to the cinema, theatre or museum.

Our factsheets give you more detailed information about products that can help you to communicate, alert you to various events and enjoy different forms of entertainment.

You can order our free factsheets and leaflets from our helpline.
