Full or partial hearing loss presents a tremendous challenge for millions of Canadians each year. While some signs might be hard to notice, such as ringing in the background, difficulty hearing in crowded environments or even challenges hearing certain pitches. While the symptoms are often different, they all present very real difficulties at work, at home, and among friends.
No matter your individual circumstances, the knowledge of a qualified RHIP is important to provide an accurate hearing test so they can find the best hearing aid to suit your hearing problems. Our team at the Armstrong NexGen Hearing clinic located on Pleasant Valley Road is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions
We do perform hearing tests on children at some of our NexGen Hearing clinics. There is an additional charge for this hearing test. The age ranges we are able to test vary from clinic to clinic. To find out where to get your child’s hearing tested, please call us at 1 (877) 606 6671.
If your hearing aid is making a whistling noise, then you are hearing feedback in your device. Sound that was supposed to go into your ear canal has escaped the ear instead and been picked up by the hearing instrument’s microphone. The sound then becomes reamplified and put out of the speaker.
This can happen when the hearing aid does not fit properly. If you are experiencing a whistling noise in your hearing device, come see us at our clinic so we can have your hearing aid refitted.
- Store batteries at normal room temperature.
- Wash your hands before changing batteries to keep oil and dirt from causing damage to the battery or clogging up the air pores.
- Leave the battery compartment in your hearing aid open at night to let moisture escape.
- Use a hearing aid storage container or dehumidifier.
- Check the expiration date on the package before you purchase new batteries. Try and purchase batteries with an expiry date that is a year in the future or further.
- Do not remove the protective seal on the battery until you’re ready to use it. Once the seal is removed, the battery begins to lose charge.
- Use rechargeable batteries. Our clinic staff would be happy to help you find a rechargeable option for your device.
- Voices sounding muffled or unclear
- Not being able to tell where a sound is coming from (known as localization)
- Needing higher volume settings on televisions, stereos and headphones
- Trouble differentiating between foreground and background noise
If your hearing aid is making a beeping noise, it means that your battery is low and needs to be replaced. Simply change the battery in your device and the beeping noise will stop.
If you have run out of hearing aid batteries, come see us at our clinic and we will be happy to get you set up with some new ones.
