What's wrong with my hearing aid?

Does your hearing aid need to be reprogrammed, or does it need to be repaired?

Video Transcript

Does your hearing aid need to be reprogrammed, or does it need to be repaired?

In this video, I share a story of a patients hearing aids that she thinks are in need of reprogramming.  Testing revealed that the hearing aids were in-fact not functioning properly and were in need of repair.  http://www.AppliedHearingSolutions.com

Ways to prevent Hearing Aid Repairs:

1. Seeing your Audiologist regularly - Audiologists can do more detailed maintenance on your devices to prevent issues from arising.

2.  Home Preventative Maintenance - Cleaning your own hearing aids regularly is essential to proper hearing aid function.

3. Use a Dry and Store Kit - If you are not using a hearing aid dryer, your hearing aid will lose sound quality and shorten it's usable life.  

I recommend the Zephyr or the Westone Hearing Aid Saver.
