TV streaming, cell phone compatibility, and remote directional microphones are some of the accessories that can be used with today’s hearing aids. When you hear terms like Bluetooth, 2.4GHz, or 9MHz, you can boil it down to one simple thought…..wireless connectivity. Wireless connectivity allows you to hear maximum speech content at a comfortable listening volume. A demonstration of these accessories is well worth your time. You may or may not need these accessories in the beginning, but you need to know what they are and what they can do for you.
Otoscopic Examination: Using a video-otoscope, we’ll look in your ears to check the overall health of your eardrums. We’ll also check your ear canals for growths and excessive cerumen (wax) build up.
Cerumen (Wax) Removal: Using a sterilized curette, we can remove excessive wax to ensure good test results and maximize hearing aid performance. In the event we are not able to remove the wax, we’ll either suggest the use of a wax removal kit or refer you to an ENT or walk-in clinic to have it removed.
Hearing Test: During the hearing test, you’ll respond to air conduction tones (AC) and bone conduction tones (BC). Then, we’ll find your uncomfortable level (UCL) and most comfortable level (MCL). At your most comfortable level of amplification, we’ll have you repeat a list of words to measure your word recognition score (WRS), which gives us an indication of your ability to use amplification effectively.
With test data, we can program devices with the latest in digital hearing technology, so you hear for yourself what it’s like to correct your hearing. We’ll also demonstrate wireless streaming which allows you to take phone calls in your hearing aids or listen to television or another person over distance and through noise. Streaming is something you really need to experience to understand what we call “maximum content at a comfortable volume”.
Hear the difference for yourself, in your world. Try them at home with no obligation
State law requires that new hearing aid sales come with a minimum 30-day trial period from the day of delivery. You can return your hearing aids within that 30-day trial period and receive a partial refund. The law allows us to charge $150.00 for one hearing aid or $200.00 for two hearing aids, plus a fee up to 5% of the total purchase price. WE DO NOT CHARGE the 5% FEE.
After your fitting and adjustment period we’ll schedule periodic visits for hearing aid cleanings, filter replacements, batteries, and we’ll check your ears for wax. We’ll also retest your hearing periodically to keep up with any changes and adjustments that we need to make to optimize your hearing aid performance.
