Duncan Hearing Services, Hearing Aids & Hearing Tests
The loss of hearing, either partial or full, can lead to certain difficulties in life. This can be anything from severe damage to your hearing like full or partial loss of hearing, or smaller issues like constant ringing that often comes with tinnitus. Some of these signs are noticed less easily, others can impact social interactions and make understanding instructions in a workplace more difficult.
No matter the 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 Duncan NexGen Hearing clinic located on Trunk Road is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients. Reach out to us today to book your free hearing test, and get back to hearing the fantastic sounds our city has to offer!

ANSWERS ABOUT HEARING AIDS AND MORE
Frequently Asked Questions
A hearing aid will usually have anywhere between 4 and 24 channels that divide captured sounds so the wearer can hear different sounds more clearly. The more channels a hearing aid has, the more divided the sound gets, allowing the wearer to hear more sounds clearly. We generally recommend our patients to choose a hearing aid with at least 12 channels because this will allow us to adjust the sound on the device in a much more personalized way based on the type of hearing loss they are experiencing.
- You start turning up the television or radio louder than normal.
- You struggle to understand speech and follow conversations.
- You frequently twist your body or neck to point your ear towards what you’re listening to.
- You regularly hear a high-pitched ringing noise (tinnitus).
- You miss phone calls, doorbells or alarms.
- Sensoineural: The inner ear, hearing nerve, or hair cells within the cochlea become damaged. It can be a result of aging, exposure to loud noise, injury, disease, certain medications, or an inherited condition.
- Conductive: occurs in the outer or middle ear when sound waves become blocked by earwax or a foreign object in the ear canal. The middle ear canal could be impacted with fluid, infection, or a bone abnormality. Lastly, conductive hearing loss can be caused by an injury to the eardrum.
- Mixed: People can sometimes experience a combination of both sensorineural and conductive hearing loss.
The act of not wearing a hearing aid in itself will not make your hearing get worse. What can make your hearing get worse is not wearing a hearing aid and needing to increase the volume on things like televisions, radios, and headphones, or needing people you are talking with to talk louder. We recommend you wear your hearing aid as directed by your doctor and audiologist. However, if you are not wearing your hearing device, be sure not to overdo it with turning up the volume.
Here at your local NexGen Hearing Center, we help you every step of the way in deciding if a hearing aid is best for you. We will conduct a free hearing test to determine if you currently have hearing loss. Once the hearing test has been completed, we will help you ascertain how much your hearing loss (if any) is affecting your daily life and/or activities. If you can’t hear as well as you could in the past, several aspects of your life could be impacted. Hearing loss can gradually increase without us even realizing, which lends weight to the idea of consistently having your hearing checked.
Our audiologists are experienced in treating a variety of levels of hearing loss and their effects. Don’t go another day wondering if your hearing could be improved. Let our experts help you improve your hearing to its highest levels.
