Why hearing tests are important

Routine hearing checks are a vital part of your general health care, just like visiting the optician or dentist. Your hearing is a precious and valuable part of your life – and we want to help you enjoy the best hearing you possibly can.

At Key to Hearing, we encourage regular hearing checks to promote the benefits of healthy hearing. As well as assessing your hearing range, we’ll also offer you expert advice on general ear health, hearing aids and looking after your ears.

Our promise to you 

We only charge £40 for your initial hearing evaluation and consultation. Consultations normally last between 90 and 150 minutes. We believe this represents great value, however if you are left disappointed with the service provided we will waive the cost or refund you within 30 days of your appointment.

Over 30 Five Star Reviews

As well as being Dorset's most reviewed hearing care company on Google, Key to Hearing is also pleased to have a Five Star rating.


Your hearing evaluation – what to expect

Contact us to book an appointment and we’ll arrange a convenient time to visit you. We recommend having a partner, a friend or relative to accompany you at the consultation but please don’t worry if this is not possible.

A warm intro

To start with, we’ll introduce our service and discuss your hearing and ear health. We’ll review your day-to-day hearing needs and give you the opportunity to voice any concerns and identify situations where you feel your hearing could improve.

Ear check

Using an Otoscope (hand held magnifying lens), we will perform a health check of your outer ear to identify earwax build-up or other medical conditions.

A complete hearing test

Fitting you with some comfortable earphones we’ll use an audiometer to determine the faintest tones that you can hear at a specific range of frequencies in each ear. We’ll also check to determine your listening comfort and understanding in noise.

Product selection

If your results show you would benefit from a hearing aid, we’ll show you some solutions that best fit your needs. You can learn more about our hearing care service and devices on our home page.

"My life has improved..."

I have been most impressed with all you have done for my hearing. Before I got my hearing aids, I was forever telling my wife that I couldn’t hear what she was saying. You have been so friendly and helpful. You have always been happy to answer my lengthy list of questions. I like the invisibility of my hearing aids. My son never noticed them until I pointed them out!! I feel my life has improved”.

Tim Armstead from Wareham
