Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
There are many steps to a hearing evaluation. If you suspect that you might need hearing aids, you will first need to have a hearing evaluation. At the time of the hearing evaluation, a case history will be taken to determine how much your hearing problem impacts your day-to-day life, as well as the lives of your family.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, your hearing care professional will discuss different hearing aid styles, colors, technologies and benefits. Your specialist will help you select the right hearing aid for your personal needs. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing device chosen.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are initially programmed based on your audiogram. It is uncommon for hearing aids to be perfect from the start. Expect weekly visits for the first few weeks to make sure the fit is accurate & so that adjustments can be made based on your real world experiences. The hearing professional's goal is to customize the hearing aids specifically for you & your lifestyle.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
Musician's Earplugs and Monitors
Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s earplugs help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.
