Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I buy an EliteHear Hearing Aid?
As one of the fastest growing brands in Ireland, EliteHear is proud to have helped over 700 people recover their hearing loss.
How do I know if I need a hearing aid?
If you have hearing loss, you should consider getting hearing aids.
- You may have difficulty following conversations.
- Phone conversations are a struggle.
- Difficulty pinpointing where a sound is coming from.
- If you are asking people to repeat themselves or if you find them mumbling.
- If you have any sign of Tinnitus – ringing, buzzing or white noise sounds in your ears.
- Having the Television or Radio very loud.
We recommend seeking treatment as soon as the hearing loss is detected since untreated hearing loss can have a negative impact on your life. Wearing hearing aids is a proactive solution in treating hearing loss early and improving your quality of life.
What if it doesn’t work for me?
If you decide the EliteHear range of hearing Aids aren’t for you, no problem! Just get in touch with us and we’ll give you a full refund within the first 30 days after your initial purchase.
Why does EliteHear not have a physical store where I can try before buying?
In an effort to cut out the middleman and save you money, we have eliminated all unnecessary costs. This allows us to pass on the savings to you and sell quality devices for a fraction of the price.
What does a hearing Aid do?
A hearing aid is a small medical device designed to improve one’s hearing ability by amplifying sounds. It helps people with hearing loss to hear better and maintain an active and social life. Today’s hearing aids have become more technologically advanced and smaller than ever before.
Does adjusting to using a hearing aid take time?
Yes, it does. Similar to getting used to a new pair of glasses, there is usually an adjustment period when first hearing sounds through a new hearing aid, especially since the user has gradually been exposed to less sounds during the process of losing their hearing. The length of the adjustment period varies from person to person. As a rule of thumb, the more you use the hearing aid, the quicker you get used to the hearing aid.
Which hearing aids can i choose from?
There are different types of hearing aids available. The most common type is placed behind the ear, (also referred to as BTE) and there are also hearing aids that fit inside your ear canal (referred to as ITC). There is also a broad selection of hearing aid brands and models to choose from. We have chosen the most popular types in our store
Will hearing aids help tinnitus?
Approx 6 in every 10 people experience tinnitus relief from wearing hearing aids, but the effectiveness varies from person to person. If your hearing is within normal limits and you experience hearing loss, you can also try a hearing aid that only includes a tinnitus sound generator (and no sound amplification)
Do You Accept Insurance?
No. Most insurance companies don’t cover hearing aids. This is the exact reason Elite Hear was founded — to provide affordable hearing aids to the hard-working people of Ireland that deserve better pricing. Fortunately, Elite Hear’s prices are so affordable that anyone can afford to buy from us. And if cash is tight, continue reading…

How is Elite Hear's Price so Affordable compared to the traditional €5,000 Hearing Aids?
67% of a traditional €5,000 hearing aid goes directly to middlemen like audiologists. We cut out the middleman entirely, which means no doctors, rent, and other overhead expenses to pay and thereby we are able to pass those savings onto you!
