While the technology of hearing aids continues to advance, the devices are still small and delicate. As such, even with the best of care, hearing aids can – and do – sustain damage and break.
Sometimes, hearing aids can be repaired at home with simple do-it-yourself troubleshooting
If these tricks don’t fix the issue, or if the damage is physical, our hearing specialist provides in-office repairs. While you wait for your devices, you can borrow one of our loaner pairs.
Unfortunately, hearing aids aren’t just plug and play; they do require some fine tuning before you’re ready to walk out the doors and into the world. During the hearing aid dispensing and fitting appointment, the hearing specialist fine-tunes the hearing aid to ensure maximum benefits.
The hearing aid dispensing and fitting appointment can last up to two hours; we like to give you our time and make sure you leave no stone unturned.
If the results of the series of hearing tests, or diagnostic audiologic evaluation, indicates that you have hearing loss, the next step toward enjoying a life filled with more sound is to set up an appointment for hearing aid evaluations. The hearing aid evaluation will help you and the hearing specialist determine which style of hearing aid is right for you based on your type and degree of hearing loss, budget and lifestyle.
A diagnostic audiologic evaluation is actually a series of tests used by our team of hearing specialists at Earzlink Hearing Care to establish the type and degree of hearing loss an individual has in each ear. This series of tests examines each part of the ear – the inner, middle and outer – to check that each part is working the right way.
