What Motivates Us Each Day?
Welcome To The Ear Depot | Conversation Made Easy
Providing Professional Hearing Testing since 1982

Hearing Aids Are About Relationships

Not Retail

35+ Years Experience

Given our experience of over 35 years providing expert assistance to people with all levels of hearing loss, we recognize that the disappearance of certain sounds often takes place gradually.

In very subtle ways even the most common hearing impairment can unknowingly become a very real strain on a person’s quality of life.

Passion In Service

When we don’t hear clearly what other people are asking or saying to us, we begin to pull away from conversation more regularly.

And our passion at The Ear Depot is in helping people remove the barrier that hearing loss causes, and bring folks back to confident and enjoyable conversation every day.

It's one thing to be told what will help. It's another to experience it!

A Quick Story On How We Began...

Working for over nine years as a Hearing Instrument Practitioner under the guidance of two exceptionally caring Hearing Clinics in both Peterborough and Toronto, Brenda saw firsthand what it meant to truly serve the needs of those dealing with difficulty hearing conversation.

And by 1991, felt it was time to open her own practice and provide the same level of care and passion she had been taught to give, within her hometown of Peterborough.

Over the past two and half decades The Ear Depot has grown incredibly strong, with several location expansions.

It’s influence continues to grow, as Brenda and all her staff hold firmly to the belief that when the best in hearing aid technology is combined with old fashioned, honest client care service, everyone wins!

Three Locations To Serve You Best

With locations in Peterborough, Bancroft and Barry’s Bay, we invite you to come visit us, and experience conversation made easy.
