So Why Choose Me?

Below are the thoughts of some of my customers, I am extremely happy to allow them to speak for me

Having used NHS hearing aids for many years and being plagued by uncomfortable ear moulds, excess ear wax and the nine-month wait to see an audiologist I decided to investigate the private sector. This led to an appointment with a company called Hidden Hearing which fitted me with a pair of ‘state of the art’ hearing aids which were outstanding - apart from the price tag of £5,500 - way outside my limited income.

An online search led me to the Hearing Aid Advice Centre which was advertising the same aids at half the price. That’s how I came to meet Colin Forrest of the Hearing Aid Advice Centre who loaned me three different hearing aids over two weeks so that I could decide, with his expert advice and guidance, which ones best suited me.

I’m now the owner of two top-rated hearing aids which cost less than half those offered by Hidden Hearing - who wanted their money after only wearing them for about five minutes. Thanks to Colin l am now able to converse with family and friends, even with loud background noise, listen to television and receive phone calls via an app on my phone that channels the sound to my hearing aids.

Alastair Delaney, Lochgelly

"Colin provides the highest quality service at the most reasonable rates. He is also extremely efficient and provides a speedy response. My elderly father in law lost his hearing aids and Colin went over and above to ensure this was resolved speedily. Colin is honest and reliable and cares for his customers. He made an old man and his family very happy with his caring and professional approach. "

Mrs H Day


"I was formerly with Amplifon who were taken over by Hidden Hearing. I decided to upgrade my hearing aid and found Colin's prices far more competitive. The standard of service and in particular the after sales support has been exceptional as has been the case with Resound also"

Mr F Lazzeri


"I write to express my thanks for the help that you gave me while knowing for certain that there was no possibility of a sale in it for you. Even though you knew you would never sell me a hearing aid, you spent time with me to help me understand what might be best. Your referral to the centre in Keighley has turned out well and the Oticon More devices are excellent. It is quite unique to experience simple kindness in these times. I am both impressed and grateful."

Mr J Smailes

Keighley, Yorkshire

"Hi Colin Just wanted to thank you for the kindness , consideration and compassion you showed to my mum. Mum is delighted with her hearing aid and I would highly recommend your service. These days it is refreshing to find someone who goes the extra mile and doesn't take advantage of their clients. Once again many thanks."

Ms F MacGregor


" I called to my local Boots to have my hearing aids repaired however, they were more interested in selling me new ones and wanted to charge a small fortune for the repair. I looked further afield and came across Colin.He was so helpfull and arranged everything with the manufacturer to have them restored as new. This was done for a fraction of the price Boots wanted.I would not hesitate to recommend him and give him 10/10"

Mr W Dickson


"As a hearing aid user for over 25 years i am now on my fifth set and i cannot thank you enough, these are easily the best I've ever had. The skill and expertise demonstrated by Colin places him head and shoulders above everyone else I have bought hearing aids from"

Mr G Scott


"Like many people I waited too long before addressing my hearing difficulties. When I did finally do something about it the Hearing Aid Advice Centre provided me with a life changing service. Very accurate testing and problem identification resulted in me being offered advice and solution options tailored to my needs. A trial of two makes of hearing aids resulted in me deciding on a perfect answer to my hearing problems. This along with a willingness to continue to provide advice and service into the future came at a very reasonable and extremely competetive price. I would recommend the Hearing Aid Advice Centre to anyone who needs good curteous professional advice and service at reasonable cost."

Mr I Jones


"Colin helped me with broken hearing aids which he sent to the manufacturer for a total refurb. Nothing was too much trouble for this gentleman. After the refurb he did a comprehensive hearing check and adjusted aids to suit. I found him pleasant and professional and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone with hearing difficulties. He went that extra mile for me, THANK YOU COLIN."

Mr J McKenzie


"Can’t praise Colin enough for the fantastic service he provides. I had a problem with my hearing aids which were four years old. I thought I would have to replace them but Colin explained that they were still under warranty. He offered to send them back to Resound on my behalf. Have to praise the customer service at Resound who found my hearing aids were not operating correctly. As a result they replaced them with a brand new pair free of charge So having just spent some time with Colin having my hearing checked and the new hearing aids configured I am over the moon. I support local businesses where I can and so refreshing to find that you get a personal service and good value for money "


West Calder

"After a lot of years with one of the national hearing aid companies, I discovered I was being ripped off with obsolete aids. Fortunately, I came across Colin and his hearing aid company more than 10 years ago and I cannot recommend him highly enough for reliability, honesty and attention to detail"

Mr A Lucas


"Colin was very professional, in getting me the correct hearing aids, any issues you can contact him, no problem, also his prices are excellent compared to the high street, would definetly recommend thank you colin."

Mrs M Wilson


"What can i say. I write to express my thanks for the help that you gave me with you knowing for certain that there was no possibility of financial gain in it for you. It is quite unique to experience this in these times. I was touched and grateful."

Mr S McLean


"I struggled with my hearing aids for over 3 years constantly visiting my supplier to get them adjusted all to no avail. I then contacted another supplier for new ones and realised after 7 visits from them in 2 months that they could do no better. I was in despair. I contacted you on a recommendation and after only 2 visits I can now hear perfectly – I can't thank you enough, you achieved the impossible."
