Hearing Help Essex has a resource centre within the office where a wide range of specialist equipment designed to help improve the quality of life of hearing aid wearers is on display.

The equipment may be loaned for up to one week in order that it can be tried in the comfort of one’s own home before purchasing. There is no charge for this service, but a voluntary donation is gratefully accepted.

Although Hearing Help Essex does not sell the equipment we have a wide selection of brochures for the different companies that do sell the equipment.

We do however have a supply of hearing aid battery testers, earmould tubing puffers and a selection of badges for sale.

If you would like to try any of the above equipment please telephone our office to make an appointment on 01245 496347. Our office hours are 10.00am to 3.00pm Monday to Friday. It is essential that you make an appointment if you want to come in and try out the equipment, because the very nature of our work means that we are not always in the office. Please check the ‘News’ page of the website for any updated opening hours.
