No Longer Feel Cut Off From Family & Friends

If you have been struggling to hear the television lately without turning the volume up or you feel like you need to strain to be part of a conversation, it can have a negative impact on your confidence. When you book in for a hearing test with Pullen & Symes, we can get to the root of why you may be experiencing hearing loss, and offer a range of options to help you.

With a friendly atmosphere, we have two branches in Exeter. One is on Longbrook Street at the back of Exeter train station. A part of bustling Exeter, near the shopping centre and the bus station, it is a great choice for more centrally located patients.

Our Ottery St. Mary branch can be found on Mill Street. Located in this popular old farm town, it is an excellently convenient option for those who live in more rural locations.

Full Hearing Care Service

A hearing assessment is the first step to check the health of your ears and whether any hearing loss is detected. Following your hearing test, which can be carried out at our locations in Exeter and Ottery St Mary or in the comfort of your own home, our Audiologist will create a personalised hearing care plan tailored to your individual needs. 


If hearing devices are recommended, our Audiologist will explain the options available to you based on your lifestyle and hearing needs. We work with some of the industry’s leading audio device manufacturers so that you can be sure we only recommend quality products using the latest technology.

Ear wax removal in Exeter

A key or at least contributing factor to hearing loss can be a build up of ear wax. As well as our other on-site services, we are able to offer an easy ear wax removal service which could help you to hear more clearly.

Why book your free hearing test?

Though you may not feel like you need one, keeping on top of your ear health with a hearing test is a great idea. At Pullen & Symes we seek to help you with everything from tinnitus management to purchasing replacement hearing aids. Your hearing protection is our top priority.

Should you require a hearing aid, we offer invisible and rechargeable models with up to a five-year warranty and repair and servicing available. We also offer lifetime aftercare, so you can feel secure in knowing you will receive the best care for a long time to come.

If you cannot get out to either of our branches, make sure to enquire – we provide home visits with the same high level of care as you receive on-site.

"The hearing aids are unnoticeable and the quality of hearing is so much better than with any of the hearing aids I’ve had before – in all environments.  I am delighted with them."


"Just like to say how pleased I am with the service and the quality of the product recommended, all working very well. Plus the cost was 20% cheaper than the cost of the device recommend by another independent supplier."
