Hearing Aid Repair
Hearing aids very quickly become an everyday essential for those who choose to treat their health. While this leads to some really tangible benefits for the user, it is natural that heavy use will lead to some technical hitches in the hardware. IF your hearing aid has seen better days, all is not lost. We can help you diagnose the problem and fix it so that you can go back to living your life.
We price hearing aid repairs on a case-by-case basis. The price can fluctuate wildly depending on how damaged the parts are, the cost of replacing parts by ordering new ones from the manufacturers, and if your machine is still within its warranty.
For those who need repairs, please see us at our hearing practice. We know how important hearing is to your day to day life and we will do all we can to ensure your hearing is back up to speed.
Some common hearing aid repairs include:
Our hearing tests are used as the crucial first step in your hearing health journey. After a physical examination is performed, we run a test which evaluates your ability to hear frequencies at certain volumes. Put simply, we are looking for the lowest possible volume at which you can detect a certain pitch of sound. We then want to see how well you can understand speech. We then display your hearing profile in a chart called an audiogram, where we will discuss the nature of any hearing loss you might have. The entire process is minimally-invasive, quick and pain-free.
Once you decide on a hearing device an audiologist, the next step is to get it fitted. But beware, not all hearing aid fittings are created equally. At Best Life Hearing Center, we want to make sure you get the most from your hearing aids, and that’s why we use real-ear measurements when fitting your hearing aid. This is seen by most audiologists as the absolute best way to fit a pair of hearing aids.
Most hearing aid manufacturers program a hearing aid based on one size of ear. But as we know, human ears come in all shapes and sizes. This means the hearing aid isn’t optimized for the shape of your ear. By using real-ear measurements, we fit the hearing aids to the exact size and shape of your ear. Studies show that patients fitted using real-ear measurements are happier with their hearing aids and experience improved performance in their hearing aids. We wouldn’t have it any other way!
We offer complete diagnostic audiological evaluations, which include immittance testing and distortion product otoacoustic emissions testing, for children ages 1 year and older.

Assistive Listening Devices
Although hearing aids provide many benefits, sometimes we need a little more help with everyday tasks, and assistive listening devices help us with that. Often used in conjunction with hearing aids, they use technology to help those who have trouble hearing receive important information in an easier way. They help improve the noise-to-speech ratio, which makes it easier to hear normal speech in public places, on the phone, or even in the classroom. Many ALDs today leverage Bluetooth technology to make everyday lives of those with hearing loss easier.
There are many types of ALDs on offer at our practice, and one of our staff members would be happy to sit with you to find one that will offer the most benefit to you. A short list includes:

Our musicians hearing protection help to ease sound levels equally across the frequency spectrum, which help you experience music at frequency makeup that you are used to.
