Hearing Tests in Hitchin

You may be nervous about booking a hearing test or may not think you need one – but there is never a bad time to check on your hearing and the assessment is non-invasive and painless. At our hearing clinic at Shephard & Akay Optometrists, we can provide hearing advice, support for tinnitus management, earwax removal, and a full range of hearing care. We also have top quality invisible and rechargeable hearing aids, which come with an up to five-year warranty and lifetime aftercare. We even provide repair and servicing, so your hearing is always as good as it can be.

Set in the beautiful market town of Hitchin, our independent practice is well located opposite St. Mary’s Church. We offer a wealth of experience and tailor our solutions to suit your needs. Everyone is different, and your hearing care should reflect that. If you have any questions about accessibility, please let our audiologist know at the time of booking your appointment.
