                  Needs Repairs
                               Getting used to life with hearing aids can take
                               some time. Accepting that you have
                               experienced hearing loss is a big adjustment
                               for many people. Their days are often filled
                               with visits to the hearing healthcare
                               professional for hearing tests and researching
                               the various hearing aid models on the market.

Choosing the best hearing aid to meet your needs is a big task.
There are dozens of hearing aid brands on the market and each
brand has a long list of models. The hearing aid industry invests
millions of dollars into the research and testing of new technology
each year.

Hearing aids aren’t what they used to be. They were once big,
ugly, cumbersome boxes that were uncomfortable and
embarrassing to wear. They often made loud squealing noises in
the most inappropriate times. Most of the negative stigma
associated with hearing loss and the need to wear hearing aids is
based on the old school models.

Fortunately, today’s hearing aids are small, sleek and discrete.
They contain advanced technological features. Some are wireless,
digital or water resistant. Phonak’s Lyric model is one of the most
popular invisible hearing aids. Invisible hearing aids are worn
completely inside the ear, making them invisible to the outside

world. The Lyric is worn inside of the ear 24/7 and requires zero
handling.

Once most people choose the right hearing aid for their situation,
they are often amazed at how immediate and intense the
difference in their hearing is. The technology in today’s hearing
aids brings crisp and clean sounds to almost anyone who has
suffered hearing loss. Your hearing aid provider will tell you what
you need to do to care for your hearing aids. Proper care and
maintenance will help extend their life and ensure they are
working to their highest capacity.

However, with any electronic device, sometimes things go wrong.
Maybe you accidentally dropped them in the bathtub, stepped on
them or the dog used your hearing aid as a chew toy. Sometimes
malfunctions happen that have nothing to do with the wearer.

What do you do when your hearing aid is in need of repair? You
may be tempted to try to fix it yourself. This is a bad idea. You
could make the situation worse, costing you even more time and
money. You could destroy the device completely.

There are many shops that advertise hearing aid repair. Be
careful of these shops. Hearing aids are complicated devices and
it’s important to find someone with experience repairing your
specific brand and model. The best way to handle broken hearing
aids is to visit with your hearing healthcare professional who can
send them directly to the manufacturer for repair.
