Audibel is superb! Taylor and Emily got this old Veteran through the hearing test even with my claustrophobia. They allowed me to take breaks throughout the test. When it came time to make the molds for my hearing aides, we found out that I was allergic to silicone. No problem...

My first hearing test in many years. Evaluation was thorough and explanations were easy to understand. They were patient with my questions. I like the 30 day return policy. The ladies out front were very friendly and helpful in connecting my new hearing aids to my phone.
