Vancouver Kitsilano Hearing Services, Hearing Aids & Hearing Tests

The loss of hearing, either in partial or full, can make participation in daily life more difficult and impact your quality of life. Signs of hearing loss range from smaller signs such as constant ringing in the ears to more severe symptoms such as partial or full hearing loss. This can make social interactions more difficult, cause troubles properly hearing and understanding instructions in a learning or work environment, and make it more difficult to enjoy your hobbies and interests.

No matter your situation, 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 Kitsilano NexGen Hearing clinic located on Alma Street is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients.

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.

We do perform tinnitus assessments at some of our NexGen Hearing clinics. To find out which clinic you can book a tinnitus assessment appointment please call us at 1 (877) 606 6671.

At NexGen Hearing, we recommend that you have your hearing tested once per year as a precautionary measure, especially if you are frequently in noisy environments. Also, if you find yourself doing any of the following, it could mean you are experiencing hearing loss and should see us for a free hearing test:
  • 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.
If you are experiencing any of these situations, don’t delay or wait for it to improve naturally. Come see us for a free hearing test to determine the state of your hearing.

The adjustment period for a new hearing aid can vary from person to person. Most people become fully adjusted to their hearing aid within two to three weeks, but some people can take up to four months to become completely comfortable with their hearing aid.

 

It’s important to remain patient while you get used to your hearing aid, but if you suspect that your hearing aid is not calibrated properly or it isn’t working for you, come back to see us and we’ll help you adjust your hearing aid or set you up with one that will work better for your needs.

The life of a hearing aid’s battery is impacted by many factors such as the hearing aid model, battery brand, battery technology, and how the device is used. The model of the hearing aid is integral in determining the life of the battery. Some hearing aids are better than others in terms of battery consumption while others offer features that will more quickly drain a battery. Batteries come in four common sizes (10, 312, 13, 675). Based on a 16 hour day of wear, the average lifespan for a standard battery is listed below:

Size 10: 3 – 7 days
Size 312: 3 – 10 days
Size 13: 6 – 14 days
Size 675: 9 – 20 days

If you prefer, rechargeable hearing aid batteries are also available for certain models of hearing aids that greatly improve the ease of replacing your batteries. Consult with your local NexGen Hearing aid practitioner for additional details.
