Hearing Tests in Edinburgh

Finding it difficult to hear a conversation? Perhaps you are constantly rewinding the TV or turning the volume up, or putting off making phone calls? These are clear signs of hearing loss that shouldn’t be ignored. It can be difficult to accept that there is a problem, especially with something as precious as your hearing, but the sooner we can determine you are suffering from hearing loss, the sooner we can recommend treatments to slow down its progress.

Our hearing clinic is located at Birrell and Rainford Optiians, established in 2011, and an independent optometrist located in the West End of Edinburgh. Find us on the beautiful, cobbled William Street, surrounded by quirky, boutique independent retailers, bars and restaurants. We’re close to the business district and in walking distance of Haymarket Station.

Our clinic offers a wide range of services including free hearing tests, hearing health checks, earwax removal, tinnitus advice, hearing protection advice, hearing aid repairs and hearing care.
