Vancouver West Broadway Audiologist Hearing Care
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 or RHIP 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 West Broadway NexGen Hearing Clinic located on West Broadway is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients. Contact us today for your free hearing test, and get back to hearing the fantastic sounds all around our city!

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!
There are many factors that determine the style of hearing aid that’s right for you, including but not limited to factors such as your degree of hearing loss, size and shape of your ear and ear canal, and any special features that are required.
Your NexGen Hearing registered hearing care professional can recommend an appropriate style of hearing aid for you – get in touch today!
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.
Wax filters should be changed every month to maintain optimal performance and cleanliness of your hearing aid. Along with the wax filter, hearing aid tubing should be replaced every four to six months, and domes should be replaced every two to three months if your hearing aid has those components.
