  • Reduces the risk of complications such as ear infections or damage to the ear canal
  • Allows for a comprehensive assessment of ear health, including the detection of any underlying issues that may require further attention.

“Pindrop Hearing micro-suctioned out the wax—not only could I see the change on camera very clearly, but I’m hearing everything so much more crisply, even a few days later! The wax must have been blocking high frequencies that I didn’t even realise I was missing.” – Ben
