Why do I need to have an impression taken?

Ear impressions are required for any custom made earplug or monitor, a perfect fit is required to reduce damaging noise levels.


How long does it take to make an impression?

Usually the entire impression process will take no longer than 30 minutes.

Is the process safe?

At Save My Hearing we've been supplying custom made products for over 30 years. We have full professional indemnity insurance, we are a member of The British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists (BSHAA) and we are registered with The Health Care Professions Council, (HCPC).

How long do impressions last? 

Ear impressions can last up to 3 months, after this time they degrade and are no longer suitable for custom products. Once the custom product has been made an image of the impressions is kept on file with the manufacturer so you can re-order your new custom made product without having new impressions taken.

What's the turnaround time?

Most of our custom made products are supplied within one week from your initial appointment, however some of the more specialist products may take slightly longer.

Where do I go?

We have 2 centres in Preston and Kirkby Lonsdale where impressions are taken free of charge. We also offer a mobile service at your home or place of work, charges for this service start at £35. We can offer appointments in the evenings or weekends.
