In previous posts I gave day-by-day accounts of my valiant efforts to accommodate my ears to a set of hearing aids.
I returned three times to the suppliers for review and adjustments to the units but after each visit I experienced the main problem, which was the frequent piercing whistling from both instruments.
One night when watching TV, I realised that I had developed the practice of keeping my head rigid so as to avoid the troublesome noise. I came to the conclusion that these infernal gadgets were insidiously taking control of me. Sorry for the hyperbole, but enough was enough!
I returned them to Hidden Hearing with the following letter:-
“To Whom It May Concern,
“Re: Contract between Hidden Hearing and the above-named, dated 14/08/2014
“Despite the best efforts of your staff at Bray, I am not satisfied with the hearing aids you supplied. I, therefore, wish to cancel the contract in accordance with its terms.
“I return herewith the said hearing aids in the condition in which I received them.
“Please be good enough to refund to me the sum of €____ which I paid before delivery of the hearing aids. Receipt No: _______ refers.
“W. Patrick Crean”
True to their word, Hidden Hearing refunded the money in full.
