Knowing When to Change Your Hearing Devices

Your hearing devices are your gateway for hearing the world around you. That’s why it’s important to make sure they are doing everything they can for your hearing.

Here are some reasons why it may be time for you to update your hearing devices:

Your hearing changes

As you age, your hearing continues to change. Even small changes in your overall health can make a big difference in your hearing. You may be more susceptible to hearing loss if you are dealing with other health issues, receiving medical treatment, or taking medication. That’s why it’s important to have your hearing checked regularly and make sure your hearing aids are fulfilling your needs.

Your hearing aids no longer work

If you have had your hearing aids for a few years, it’s a good idea to have our audiologists and hearing specialists at Hearing Associates evaluate your hearing aids to make sure they are still functioning properly.

You should also update your hearing aids if you experience problems or notice they aren’t working the way they should.

Lifestyle changes

Have you changed careers? Picked up a new hobby? Moved from the city to the suburbs? These types of lifestyle changes can have a big impact on your hearing. The staff at Hearing Associates can help you choose the right hearing aids for your lifestyle, so your hearing is always in tip-top shape.

New technology

Manufacturers are consistently introducing new technology to help improve your hearing. For this reason, it’s always a great idea to see what new features hearing aids companies have to offer. A new line of hearing aids may be better suited for your hearing needs than your current hearing aids.
