How often do I need to change my hearing aid?

Digital hearing aids are highly technological pieces of kit and all of our products are top of the range so you have nothing to worry about in terms of fault equipment.

Our audiologists will be able to carefully select which model is right for you and, from then, you will be able to start on your journey back to hearing loss recovery straight away.

However, there are some times when it's best to swap your device for a new one. That's not to say there's necessarily anything wrong with what you are wearing currently, it's just a change can do you and your hearing good.

Our experts will be able to tell you what hearing aid you require, but when will you know to come in for a replacement?

New technology

As with all technologies, things move on and new ways of doing things are discovered. Hearing aids are no different and the best minds in hearing loss are always concocting the latest and greatest devices.

Obviously you don't want to chop and change too often as this is largely pointless but every few years, if a new device is out there that fits your needs, it may be a case of 'out with the old, in with the new'.

Change in circumstance

Hearing loss can deteriorate as well as improve so if you suffer a change in circumstances then it may also be wise to get a new device that suits your needs better.

Call in for an appointment if you think your hearing needs have changed over the past few months or years and we'll be able to take a look and see whether you need a different sort of device.

If it's on the way out

Obviously, everything eventually tires out and hearing aids are no different. Sometimes they gradually start to show signs of ageing and pack up.

If you do require a replacement, remember we stock all manner of hearing aids including brands such as Oticon, Phonak, Siemens and Resound.
