Hello

Thanks for your patience.

Your rights lie within the consumers rights act 2015.

Given the apparent defect it appears the hearing aids sold to you was not fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality.

In view of this you are entitled to a number of remedies within the act.

 

Do you understand what i have stated, if yes i will proceed to the next step.

i have all ready returned these but they say that these are my property and want to send them back to me they have also offered me a new pair but i do not want to go through all the problems again as while those have been away i was due for another NHS hearing test and when i had the test they said that my old hearing aids where due to be replaced and the new one are far better than the one i bought from amplifon
Customer: replied 8 days ago.

In view of the information provided is your objective to return the faulty hearing aids?
