When to Get New Hearing Aids

When is it time to get new hearing aids? This question doesn’t have an easy answer. A guideline might help make the decision a little easier.

With today’s new technology, your hearing experience can be greatly improved. With regular maintenance and cleaning, generally hearing aids last 5 to 7 years.  Here are a few things to consider if you’re wondering whether to get new hearing aids.

Has Your Hearing Changed?

Where to begin, you might wonder. A good place to start, would be to ask yourself if your hearing has changed in any way since your last prescription. Do you find difficulty hearing when engaging in the activities you enjoy the most? Examining how you hear in those activities will indicate whether or not you should contact your doctor. It might not be you, directly, it could be the hearing aids, or something medically that needs attention.

Because hearing aids are worn on our bodies, the capacity to hear through the hearing aids diminishes. They are exposed to the rain, extreme heat, sweat, dirt and earwax to name a few. If they’re not routinely cleaned, the hearing aids will get clogged. If the hearing aids still aren’t working correctly, they might need repair. Every day wear and tear is expected to occur.

Maybe you’re not able to listen to the TV as well as you did before. Have family gatherings become overwhelming because it has become distorted in any way? When you lose interest in activities that you once found enjoyable all avenues should be addressed.

To enrich those lifestyle changes, maybe it’s time to consider and upgrade for your hearing aids. The technology that’s on the market today can enhance your experiences in a whole new way. Maybe it is hard for you to get to your hearing specialist. With the advancement of technology, your doctor can remotely do a fitting meaning you wouldn’t need to go to the office at all. Unlike hearing aids years ago, technology has improved the quality of life for someone who wears hearing aids.
