Amplifon pull out of Scotland – Hidden Hearing acquisition?
Monday 8th February 2021 | Inside sources have revealed to us that Amplifon are pulling out of Scotland. We have also been informed that the retailer Hidden Hearing will be taking over their client base and possibly their stores. When more information becomes available then we will update this page.
So what will this mean to me?
It is our understanding that Hidden Hearing will take over the aftercare of your hearing aids. There is however a question mark over which audiologist will do this. It may be that Hidden Hearing will employ your existing audiologist or you might be passed to one of their existing Hidden Hearing audiologists.
There is a possibility that if you’re being passed to a new audiologist then they may not be familiar with the brand of hearing aids that you have as Hidden Hearing and Amplifon have different product portfolios. Hidden Hearing audiologists would therefore need to undertake training on the programming of these “new” brands.
Hidden Hearing is owned by Demant Holdings who also own the manufacturers Oticon and Bernafon. When the time comes to purchase new hearing aids then there’s a pretty strong likelihood that you’ll be offered these brands. Hidden Hearing has historically charged substantially more than we do so it is worthwhile taking a look at our digital hearing aid pricelist by clicking here
