Hearing Aids

Do you need to purchase a hearing aid for each ear or can you get away with just the one?

If your hearing loss is in both ears, then wearing two hearing aids is the best way to hear the most naturally. Wearing only one can make it challenging to follow conversations and to know which direction the sound is coming from.

How often will I need to wear them?

We suggest that you wear them most of the time, especially once you are first fitted with them to get used to them as quickly as possible.

Does wearing a hearing aid make your hearing worse?

No it will not make your hearing worse, it will just help with your current loss.

Face masks do provide another challenge for wearing hearing aids, if you wear a RIC or BTE you just need to be careful when removing your mask to ensure they stay in place.

Can I wear them in the shower or get them wet?

Most hearing aids are water resistant so are perfectly fine if its raining outside, however they are NOT to be worn in the bath, shower or while swimming.

Do you provide insurance for the hearing aids?

We do not provide insurance for hearing aids, but we do suggest adding them onto your home insurance as they are a valuable item.
