Hearing Aid Services

During your appointment with our licensed hearing aid specialists, they will perform various tests to assess whether you require a hearing aid. If the results indicate that you do, they will discuss all available options with you and assist you in choosing a device that matches your hearing and listening requirements.

Once you have your hearing aids, we can assist you with cleaning and repairs. We can also help you access batteries and use your hearing aid warranties.

Hearing Aid Support and Adjustments

If you ever have issues with the operation of your devices or need adjustments, please contact our office to schedule a follow-up appointment.

Hearing Aid Cleanings

Earwax and debris can accumulate within the hearing aid over time, leading to sound quality blockages. In most cases simply replacing the wax filter will remedy the situation.  Regularly cleaning your hearing aids is essential to ensure they perform optimally and last as long as possible. 

To clean your hearing aid, use a soft, dry cloth or a special hearing aid cleaning brush to remove any visible buildup gently. Avoid using water or any liquid cleaner that could damage the device. 

If you, a  family member, or friend,  are unable to clean your hearing aids,, schedule an appointment with us for a professional cleaning. We have the tools and expertise to deep clean your hearing aids and ensure they continue functioning at their best. 

Regular cleaning and maintenance can also help to extend the lifespan of your hearing aids, saving you money in the long run.

Hearing Aid Repairs

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your hearing aids can help prevent the need for repairs, but sometimes they are necessary. If you experience any issues with your hearing aids, it's important to have them checked by a professional.

Basic repairs can be handled in-house, such as removing excess earwax and debris. However, more complex repairs may require sending the hearing aids to the manufacturer. This is especially true for older hearing aids that have worn-out parts.

If you have older hearing aids that are out-of-warranty, it's important to consider the cost of repair versus the cost of a new pair of hearing aids. Online stores and discount retailers may offer a different level of repair service than an authorized dealer or manufacturer.

It's important to note that attempting to repair your hearing aids yourself can cause more damage. If you can't clean your hearing aids, seek professional cleaning services.

Hearing Aid Warranties

When you purchase a new hearing aid, it's important to check the warranty period. Most manufacturers provide a warranty that covers repairs for 2-3 years. It's crucial to remember that the warranty period may vary depending on the manufacturer.

In case of any doubts regarding the warranty, it's best to reach out to the manufacturer or your hearing healthcare professional.

They will be able to guide you on the repair and replacement options available under warranty. Regular cleaning and maintenance of hearing aids can also help extend their lifespan and avoid the need for frequent repairs.

Hearing Aid Batteries

Hearing aids rely on batteries to function, and the type of battery they use will depend on the specific model of the device. Typically, hearing aids use either disposable or rechargeable batteries.

  • Disposable batteries are usually small and need to be replaced every few days or weeks, depending on usage. 
  • Rechargeable batteries, on the other hand, can be recharged overnight and last for several years before needing to be replaced.

Note that not all hearing aids come with rechargeable batteries and may need to be purchased separately. When purchasing hearing aids, it's important to inquire about the type of battery they use and how often they will need to be replaced.

Hearing Tests

At The Hearing Professionals, we conduct comprehensive hearing tests for individuals of all ages. We start with a hearing screening and then move on to the diagnostic hearing evaluation. 

We recommend regular hearing tests, similar to dental and vision check-ups, to ensure that your hearing health is at its best. Our licensed hearing instrument specialist conducts a thorough evaluation and provides a comprehensive report of results and recommendations to you.

Hearing Aid Fitting

After you take a hearing aid test and choose the hearing aids you want to wear, you will need to go through a hearing aid fitting. A hearing aid fitting is all about ensuring you choose the right hearing aids, fit them properly, and understand how to use them.

Hearing loss is a prevalent condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can significantly impact your quality of life, making communicating with your loved ones, participating in social activities, and performing daily tasks challenging.

Hearing aids can help you regain your hearing ability and improve your overall well-being. That is why at The Hearing Professionals, we offer an hour-long hearing aid fitting after you choose your hearing aids to ensure they fit properly and you understand how to use them.
