About 80-85% of the time when a hearing aid does not sound like it is functioning properly, there is a little wax blocking the speaker. At the Better Hearing Center, we do a good job of coaching patients in person and over the phone in how to clean their hearing aids. Many of our patients stop by for us to check and make sure their hearing aids are staying clean.
Some of the most common hearing aid maintenance we perform, aside from cleaning wax, is replacing speaker wires, cleaning microphones, and replacing ear mold tubes.
While hearing aids are under warranty (1-5 years), we do not charge fees for in-office care and service. We always invite you to make a contribution to our fund that helps us cover the costs of the charitable work we conduct.
