Hearing Aids & Hearing Care
Full or partial hearing loss can lead to certain difficulties in life. Some signs are greater than others like a noticeable loss of hearing or smaller signs such as a constant ringing associated with tinnitus. Ringing is a smaller sign with minimal impact on day to day life, however full or partial hearing loss is a greater sign which has more of an impact on routine activities.
To receive the best results from your hearing test and get hearing aids fine-tuned to your specific needs, you need a qualified RHIP to help. Our team at the Victoria Gordon Head NexGen Hearing clinic located on Shelbourne Street is passionate about providing the highest quality hearing aid care to all of our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 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.
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.
