Hearing Aid Accessories and Technology

Hearing aid lineup

In some cases, patients who have a more severe hearing loss need extra help in addition to hearing aids. The biggest complaints we hear are listening in noise, on the phone, or to the TV. Depending on your hearing loss and lifestyle, additional devices may help to supplement where the hearing aid is not enough. Some technology that is available today are Bluetooth hearing aids that connect directly to smartphones, such as an iPhone or Android. The ability to listen to your phone and TV directly through your hearing aids, and remote microphones allow you to boost what you want to hear at a distance or in noise.

The other complaint we often hear is that of annoying ringing or buzzing in the ears. This is known as tinnitus. Although there is no cure for tinnitus, some of the hearing aids we carry have programs to help manage the symptoms of tinnitus.

Introducing The World’s Most Powerful Hearing Aids: Oticon Xceed, Xceed Play, Xceed CROS

Oticon has some of the most technologically advanced hearing aids on the market today. Along with BrainHearing technology and Own Voice Processing, Oticon has recently released three new hearing aids to provide you with a seamless listening experience.

The Oticon Xceed and the Xceed Play are the most powerful hearing aids for adults and children with severe-to-profound hearing loss. They both offer 360⁰ access to speech without the interference of background noise. This allows for a better listening experience as well as improved learning for children. The Xceed and Xceed Play feature groundbreaking technology that reduces feedback, such as static or whistling, so you can hear clearer and with better attention. Adults and children can control these devices straight from their smartphones through an app, creating more control and improved usability. The Xceed for adults comes in a variety of colors to match your skin tone or hair color while the Xceed Play includes bright, fun colors in addition to the neutral tones for younger users.

Oticon CROS hearing aids offer a revolutionary 360⁰ sound experience for those with single-sided deafness. CROS hearing aids include a transmitter with a microphone that wirelessly picks up sound and sends it from your poorer ear to your better ear with a hearing aid. This allows you to easily engage in conversations in different environments. Oticon CROS hearing aids feature OpenSoundNavigator and TwinLink dual-streaming technology so you can hear from all directions. This gives you the freedom to do what you love while enjoying a more natural listening experience.

Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance

To ensure you continue hearing well, we recommend routine maintenance for your hearing aids. These appointments ensure consistent performance from your hearing aids. Once you have completed your trial period, we schedule quarterly maintenance checks for the first year as your brain adapts to hearing well again and to be certain you are managing the use and care of your hearing aids. Semi-annual checks are then scheduled for as long as you have your hearing aids.

Hearing aids, like any form of technology can break down over time. Fortunately, most issues that arise can be addressed through simple maintenance or parts replacement. We like to keep the most common supplies on hand to avoid having to send hearing aids to the manufacturer for repair. However, in some cases, hearing aids will need to be sent to the manufacturer for major repairs. Once the hearing aids are back, we will verify that the settings have been restored and get you hearing again as quickly as possible.

Hearing Aid Batteries

Hearing aids are minicomputers focused on sound-scaping, and therefore require a power source. The batteries need to be changed, on average, once a week (unless rechargeable). We will work to ensure that you know when and how to change the batteries.
