Commonly Asked Questions

Hearing aids typically last 5-7 years. When properly cared for, brought in for regular cleanings and maintenance, hearing aids can last you for many years. However, we have noticed that many patients like to upgrade their hearing aids around the 3–5-year mark in order to take advantage of the new technology.

If you do have hearing loss and choose not to get hearing aids, then your hearing will progressively worsen. Although hearing aids are not a cure for hearing loss, they do slow the rate at which your hearing loss worsens and can even prevent you from losing more of your hearing ability. In order to preserve your cognitive abilities, it’s important to manage your hearing loss with hearing aids sooner rather than later.

Hearing loss can happen to anyone of any age, not only “older people.” Even children can have hearing loss! If you are experiencing difficulty with your hearing, then you should come in for a hearing test. You don’t want to lose the ability to hear and communicate with your friends and family. A hearing aid will help you hear better for many years to come, no matter how old you are.

Hearing aids are incredibly comfortable. Many hearing aids are made with a custom ear mold, so they will fit the unique shape of your ear. We will also have you come in for follow-up appointments to make sure your hearing aids are programmed at a level that is comfortable for you.

This depends on the size of the battery that you use. There are several different sizes, and the bigger batteries can last longer. Other factors consist of how long your days are and how much noise you’re in, which can affect the battery life. It can be anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Many of our hearing aid styles come in a rechargeable option. Instead of changing a battery, at night you just place your hearing aid on a charger. This is an easy and convenient option, especially if you have dexterity issues that can make changing batteries difficult.

Hearing aids are water resistant but not waterproof. You should never wear your hearing aids in the shower or if you go swimming. They are highly water resistant and wearing them while it is raining outside won’t damage them. They are incredibly durable and meant to withstand rain and other debris.
