ANSWERS ABOUT HEARING AIDS AND MORE
Frequently Asked Questions
An analog hearing aid is an older type of hearing aid that makes continuous sound waves louder. Speech and noise are amplified in the same way, so an analog hearing aid can be thought of as a device that turns the volume up on everything around you. They can be programmed for different listening environments that can be switched at the push of a button on the hearing aid.
More commonly found these days, a digital hearing aid will have all of the features that come in an analog device. Instead of amplifying all sound waves, a digital hearing aid will convert sound waves into digital signals, and then produce an exact duplication of the sound. The technology used in a digital hearing aid is more sophisticated and allows for more complex processing of sound. This gives them greater flexibility in programming to allow the sound they transmit to be matched to the specific type of hearing loss a patient is experiencing.
If you are unsure which type is right for you, contact our clinic and come see us to discuss your needs and options!
We do perform cerumen management at a small number of our NexGen Hearing clinics, most clinics prefer to provide this service to existing clients only. If you are a new client call ahead to find out which clinic offers cerumen management please call us at 1 (877) 606 6671.
If you have any history of outer ear pathology or ear infections, we recommend you see your family doctor.
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.
Hearing aid prices vary from several hundred dollars up to a few thousand, and it all depends on the technology level in each device. Affordable hearing aids and the more expensive options come with different features and capabilities.
You can think of hearing aids as coming in levels of gold, silver, or bronze. If your listening needs are simple, it just might be that even the most basic hearing aid is enough for you. If your life is more active and you find yourself wanting to hear better in more active and noisy listening environments, then a more sophisticated level of hearing aid features will give you more benefit.
NexGen Hearing also offers financing options to help you with an affordable option to improve your hearing. Learn more about our lease to hear financing and other hearing aid financing options.
- Avoid loud noises and areas for 16 hours before the test.
- Remove any earwax that may be in your ear canal. Do not use a Q-tip to do this as that will only push earwax deeper into the canal. Let our clinic staff take care of cleaning out your ears for you.
- Let us know if you take or have taken antibiotics that can damage hearing, such as gentamicin.
