Question of the day: Are Smaller Hearing Aids More Expensive?

The short answer is 'No'. The long answer is that when you buy hearing aids you are not paying for what they look like (ie. their size*). You are paying for the technology level. The better the technology, the better the hearing aids will perform in noise. A Lifestyle Assessment completed with your hearing healthcare professional can help determine what technology level suits your needs. We often recommend buying the best technology you can afford. (*some manufacturers may charge more for the very smallest 'micro' custom hearing aids)

Hearing Terminology of the Day: CONDUCTIVE hearing loss.

Conductive hearing loss occurs when there is physically something preventing sound from following its normal route through the outer ear, eardrum and middle ear bones. Some causes for this type of hearing loss include a blockage in your ear canal (this could be ear wax), an ear infection, a tear in your ear drum, a problem with the bones in your middle ear, etc. Depending on the cause there are treatment options that are available. Sometimes this involves surgery or antibiotics. If medical treatment is not an option, hearing aids, which amplify sounds loud enough to overcome the conductive loss, work very well.

Question From a Client: How long should my batteries last?
Answer: It depends on the size of the battery and the power level of your hearing aid (ie. how hard your hearing aid has to work). In general:
- size 10 batteries (yellow) last 3-5 days
- size 312 batteries (brown) last about 7 days
- size 13 batteries (orange) last 7-10 days
- size 675 batteries (blue) can last up to 14 days
If you think your batteries are not lasting as long as they should, your hearing aids might need a good cleaning. Bring them in and we can do that for you!

Question From A Client: My hearing aid is sounding quiet or dead, do I just change the battery?
Answer: No! The first thing to do is change the waxguard (the little white tip on the end of most hearing aids) or if you are wearing a mold with a tube, make sure the opening is free of any blockage such as wax or moisture. More often than not your hearing aid is working just fine but the sound can't get out if the tip is plugged with wax. When in doubt, bring your hearing aids in to us to be cleaned. There is never a charge for a 'clean and check'. We will also give you more waxguards at no charge.

Hearing Terminology of the Day: TINNITUS

Tinnitus is the sound heard in your ears when there is no sound being produced around you. It has been described as ringing, rushing, buzzing, static, cricket noise, clicking... It can be a continuous noise or it can come and go. There has even been a link between tinnitus that fluctuates in volume and blood pressure. Some medications can cause it, so can some existing medical conditions. Often, hearing aids help mask the sound. For more information please come and see us!

Hearing Terminology of the Day: SENSORINEURAL hearing loss

Sensorineural hearing loss (or SNHL) is the most common type of hearing loss. Hearing loss due to aging and due to noise exposure fall into this category. It most often results from damage to the nerves in the cochlea, called 'hair cells'. SNHL can be treated with hearing aids. Ask your hearing healthcare professional for more information.

Hearing Loss Myth #1: Your hearing loss cannot be helped.

In the past, many people with hearing loss in one ear, with a high frequency hearing loss, or with nerve damage have all been told they cannot be helped, often by their family practice physician. This might have been true many years ago, but with modern advances in technology, nearly 95% of people with a sensorineural hearing loss can be helped with hearing aids.

If you, or someone you know, would like more information, please let us know!
