Hearing Health Questions Answered

What is sensory hearing loss?

 

Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is the prevalent form of hearing impairment, constituting about 90% of cases, resulting from inner ear damage or disrupted nerve pathways from the ear to the brain. Causes range from aging, loud noise exposure, specific medications, head trauma, and Meniere’s disease to genetic predispositions. SNHL often presents as trouble with high-pitched sounds, muffled hearing, and sometimes includes tinnitus.

What kind of hearing aid repair services are there?

 

Various hearing aid repair services cater to specific issues, with common repairs including cleaning or fixing the earmold or earplug, which is crucial for sound quality and often susceptible to dirt and damage. Tubing repairs are also common, as damaged tubing can degrade sound quality. More technical repairs may involve the receiver, which turns electrical signals into sound and can cause malfunctions if damaged, and the microphone, which can become clogged or damaged, affecting sound amplification. Reprogramming is another service that enhances hearing aid performance, adjusting volume and frequency response as needed.

For more specialized needs, services extend to re-casing, which replaces the hearing aid’s outer shell, potentially due to wear and tear or changes in the wearer’s ear anatomy. Custom earmolds or earplugs can accommodate unique ear shapes or provide a more secure fit. Additionally, hearing aid dispensaries often offer battery replacement services to ensure uninterrupted hearing aid function.
