10. Returns and Warranties
10.1 No-nonsense returns policy: It’s important to us that you’re happy with your hearing device prescription. If you’re not totally satisfied or change your mind, you can return it back to us. Most hearing devices come with a return warranty of up to 28 days or less depending on the product (e.g. custom products may not have the same return warranty as off-the-shelf products). The last date of return will be specified on your invoice. Please let us know, if you do not have the last date to return your product specified on invoice. We are unable to accept returns after the specified time. If you decide to return your hearing device within the specific time, a charge of up to £350.00 will be levied on the return to cover the administration cost unless otherwise indicated in writing. We will give you a refund for products that are returned without damage. If possible, please save the packaging/boxes and batteries that came with your hearing instrument. You can return any product within the prescribed period, even if you have used it- as long as there is no physical damage. This does not affect your statutory rights. Return warranty for other products may vary. Generally, non-custom goods or services sold online may only have 14 days return warranty.
