Before I joined Sound Audiology in 2018, I worked closely with a large hearing aid manufacturer. By sharing my insight, knowledge, and expertise, we worked on designing and crafting the best possible products and experiences to assist individuals who have experienced a loss of hearing.

This is one of the many opportunities that has allowed me to build on my patient-centered practices. Our team of professionals absolutely understand how important and valuable hearing aids are for the hard of hearing community. However, though this innovative piece of technology is extremely beneficial, like most things in life, it is not perfect.

Luckily, Sound Audiology are here to help you or your loved ones with any questions or concerns about hearing aids.

What Are Some Common Problems Hearing Aid Users Might Experience?

When hearing aids malfunction there is no need to panic, but users will want to take action quickly. An excessive build-up of debris or earwax could potentially lead to an unpleasant screeching or whistling sound known as feedback. Products like wax loops can prevent this from happening. Plus, practicing daily maintenance and cleaning routines will automatically increase the longevity of the device.

Some hearing aids come equipped with rechargeable batteries, but many of the devices still use standard, traditional batteries. Unfortunately, these batteries do have to be replaced often, but, on the other hand, a simple battery change could be the solution in some cases.

On the same note, double-checking the volume level can also go a long way and save some users from unnecessary stress. If you are experiencing a more minor issue with your hearing aid device you might want to check out Sound Hearing Cloud.

The telehealth service will put you in direct contact with our team of trusted professionals. Individuals who are seeking more support or for more significant issues, individuals should consider Sound’s repair services.

How Much Should You Expect to Pay for Hearing Aid Repairs?

Hearing aid users can potentially save thousands of dollars on repairs by making use of the warranties. Warranties range between $275 for repair with a 12-month warranty and $185 for a 6-month warranty.

Hearing devices that are  5+ years usually require a quote. Generally between $400 and $500 with a 12-month warranty. $300 with a 6-month warranty.

The warranties cover the entire hearing device for future repair, not just the repaired part of the device.
