Hearing loss can greatly affect a person’s life, causing certain things to become more difficult to do than before. These difficulties are often caused by smaller hearing problems like a constant ringing that comes with tinnitus, or greater hearing problems like hearing loss in one or both ears. Some of these signs can be easily hidden, others can impact social interactions and make understanding instructions in a workplace more difficult.
No matter your individual circumstances, the expertise of a qualified audiologist is needed to provide a high quality hearing test to provide and fine-tune the best hearing aid to fit your unique needs. Our team at the Pemberton NexGen Hearing Clinic located on Prospect Street is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions
At our clinic, we use the pure-tone audiometry test which involves you sitting in a soundproof room while wearing headphones and pressing a button every time you hear a sound. This is a short and painless test that usually lasts about 15 minutes.
A no-obligation hearing screening is free at any one of our clinics. This assessment includes the 3-point series of tests that includes measuring air conduction, word discrimination, and checking the eardrum and middle ear system. More comprehensive exams that require reporting such as physician reports, employment requirements or children’s hearing test are exempt from the free hearing test offer, check with your local clinic for rates.
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.
- 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.
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.
