Specsavers offers a private home hearing visit service in selected parts of the country and is starting to roll out free home hearing tests too.

If you live in an area where the service is available, a Specsavers audiologist can come and visit you to carry out a thorough, professional hearing test in the comfort of your own home using the latest computerised equipment. 

What happens in a hearing test at home?

Our specialist teams test your hearing, chat to you about any hearing issues you have and generally put your mind at ease.

If you do need a hearing aid, they can fit them for you and adjust them in lots of different ways. Everyone’s hearing is different and it’s important to tailor your hearing aids so that they meet your needs perfectly. You’ll have access to our aftercare package to make sure you’re fully supported on your journey with us, including a four-year warranty, a 100-day money back guarantee*, Remote Assistance and more.

*From the date of fitting.

Free hearing tests at home

We’re in the process of rolling out free home hearing tests across the UK, starting with Edinburgh and the surrounding area if you’re eligible.

How do I know if I’m eligible for a free home hearing test?

  • You or a loved one might have a condition that stops you from leaving your home unaccompanied due to poor health.
  • You are living with a diagnosed mental health condition that prevents you from leaving your home without the assistance of another person.
  • You may be housebound or bedbound due to a physical disability.

What if I’m not eligible for a free home hearing test or you don’t currently service my area?

In selected parts of the country, we can offer an at home service, which costs £95 for people who are outside of the Edinburgh and surrounding areas and who aren’t eligible. You can have your new hearing aid fitted at home too – often on the same day as your test. It's a complete hearing service, all you have to do is request an appointment.

Our home hearing tests involve a thorough, professional hearing test using the latest computerised equipment in the comfort of your own home by one of our hearing aid audiologists. The test is of the same high standard as an in-store hearing test, and follows the same process.
