Hearing Aid Repair

Image

Hearing aids are miniature marvels of technology and are more robust in their construction than ever before. Still, they spend most of their time in and around our ears. They’re exposed to moisture, environmental debris, and earwax—day in and day out. Accordingly, a hearing aid will usually require repair at some point in its life.

At Focus Hearing, we repair all makes and models of hearing aids, whether you bought them from us or somewhere else. Our expert staff can make most repairs in one day. Sometimes, a more complicated issue may require the hearing aid to be sent back to the manufacturer. Due to shipping times and the manufacturer’s own repair schedule, this might take up to 14 days.

Steps to Take Before Bringing Your Hearing Aid In For Repair:

Sometimes our hearing aids may seem to be broken, when in fact a little troubleshooting can solve the issue. Especially for new wearers, who may not yet be comfortable with operating their hearing aids, a few quick checks can save you a trip to our office—though we do always love seeing you!

Is the Hearing Aid Turned On?

It seems obvious, but it’s good to check anyway, especially if you’re new to hearing aids.

Is the Volume Set Correctly?

Sometimes the volume can get accidentally altered, or perhaps you turned it down for some reason and forgot. Just do a quick check!

Is Your Battery Okay?

If you have hearing aids that use disposable batteries, there are a couple of things to check here. First, the batteries only work when inserted in the proper orientation. Make sure your battery is inserted correctly, and try flipping it around if you’re not sure. Second, batteries die! Try a fresh battery to see if that solves the problem. If your hearing aids are using batteries faster than normal, however, there is likely a problem and you should bring them in for repair.
If you’ve checked the above and your hearing aid isn’t working, bring it in for repair.

Repair or Replace?

If a hearing aid is under warranty, repair is a good option. If the hearing aid is out of warranty, however, it may or may not make sense to repair it. Hearing aids tend to last 3-7 years. That range is so wide because many factors affect the lifespan of a hearing aid. Differences in individual body chemistry, the climate where they’re worn, maintenance practices, and the lifestyle of the wearer can all affect the longevity of a set of hearing aids.

If your hearing aids are out of warranty and have a minor issue, it is probably worth repairing them. If they are long out of warranty and have a more serious issue, however, it may be time to consider a replacement. Hearing aid technology tends to move pretty quickly, so you may find that there are models available now that will be a major improvement on your last set, as well.
