Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Do you do wax removal?

Currently, we do not provide wax removal services. Please contact your family physician to remove the wax. Use a couple drops of mineral oil in the ear canal prior to removal to help soften the wax.

Do you test children?

For children under the age of 16, we recommend that you contact your local health authority to book a hearing test for your child.

What is the cost of a hearing test?

There is no cost. Our trained hearing care professionals will assess your hearing for free. Application fees may apply. Please contact us for more information.

How long does a hearing test take?

We book your appointment for approximately one hour. This gives our hearing care professionals time to perform the hearing assessment, review your results, make recommendations and answer any questions you may have.

How often should I have my hearing checked?

Having your hearing checked regularly will help you monitor any changes as gradual hearing losses can be hard to notice. If hearing loss is present and goes untreated, the odds of depression and withdrawal from doing the things you enjoy are increased. 

Do I need a referral from my doctor to get a hearing test?

No referral is needed. Anyone can book an appointment to have their hearing tested.

When should I get my hearing tested?

Hearing loss happens for a variety of reasons, can happen at any age and affects everyone differently. If you are concerned about your hearing at any point, book a hearing test so that we can establish a baseline and our hearing care professionals will make recommendations based on your results. If you are 60 years or older, annual hearing tests are recommended.

How do I know if I need hearing aids?

Gradual hearing loss can be hard to detect.

Here is a list of the 10 warning signs of hearing loss:

  1. People seem to mumble more frequently
  2. You experience ringing in your ears
  3. You often ask people to repeat themselves
  4. Your family complains that you play the radio or TV too loud
  5. You no longer hear normal everyday sounds such as the dripping of the faucet
  6. You have difficulty understanding conversation when in a large group or crowd
  7. You hear but have trouble understanding all the words in a conversation
  8. You find the telephone conversation increasingly difficult
  9. You have trouble hearing when your back is turned to the speaker
  10. You have been told you speak too loudly

Our trained clinicians will test your hearing to help determine if you have hearing loss and if you can benefit from amplification.

Will a hearing aid restore my hearing to normal?

Hearing aids will help you hear sounds that you didn’t realize you were missing. It can help with the understanding of speech much easier and can help even when background noise is present. However, while hearing aids do provide benefit, they do not restore the natural functioning of your ear. 

I have hearing loss in both ears. Is it necessary to wear two hearing aids?

Hearing with two ears will help give a sense of surround sound.

Here’s why two hearing aids can be better than one:

Better hearing in a noisy environment

  • Research has shown that speech understanding in noisy environments is optimized when the brain receives sound from both ears.

Ability to better localize sounds

  • When the brain receives sound input from both ears, it can help with the localization of where a sound is coming from. Wearing only one hearing aid can alter this sense of direction making it more difficult to localize sound, especially in an alerting situation.

Can I try hearing aids before buying?

Yes. We offer a two-week trial and demo of hearing aids once a hearing evaluation has been performed. Our hearing care professionals will make the appropriate recommendations based on your hearing results and will discuss and review the options to find the best fit, maximize your ability to hear again and evaluate their benefit.

How long does it take to get used to a hearing aid?

Each person’s experience is different. With hearing aids, you will be able to hear sounds you have not heard in a while and can sometimes be overwhelming. The adjustment period will involve re-training your brain, in a sense. The brain needs some time to sort out any new information entering the ears and with consistent use and wearing of the hearing aids, will help with that adjustment.

Our hearing care professionals will work closely with you to deliver a pleasant overall experience as well as manage expectations. Based on your experiences wearing the hearing aids in different environments, we are able to fine tune the hearing aids to make that adjustment easier.

How long do hearing aid batteries last?

The life of a hearing aid battery is dependent on several different factors such as the hearing aid type, battery capacity, and how the hearing aid is used.

The type or style of the hearing aid is important in determining the battery life. Hearing aids that provide more power or amplification due to a more severe loss will drain the battery quicker than hearing aids providing less amplification.

How long and what you use your hearing aids for will also determine battery life. If you wear your hearing aids for a full day and only remove them at night, the battery will drain faster than someone who wears them only for a couple of hours at a time. The battery will also drain faster if you are using Bluetooth to stream music or phone calls.

The average lifespan of the most common battery sizes (10, 312, 13, 675) are listed below, based on a full day’s wear.

Size 10: 3 – 7 days
Size 312: 3 – 10 days
Size 13: 6 – 14 days
Size 675: 9 – 20 days⠀

Rechargeable lithium ion hearing aids are a new option that eliminates having to carry and change batteries.Rechargeables come with a charger that plugs into an outlet or USB for patients to charge their hearing aids overnight.

Why do hearing aids cost so much?

Technology will always influence the cost of hearing aids. With great advancements of technological features, hearing aids are like miniaturized computers that can instantly process the constant input of information.

That being said, hearing aids prices will vary depending on the style, technology level, and power level. Each price level of hearing aid will come with different levels of features and flexibility. Ask our hearing care professionals about a trial of a pair of hearing aids and hear the benefit for yourself.

Also, included in the price of the hearing aids is a three year warranty that covers any repairs, cleanings, loaner hearing aids, adjustments and fine tuning to ensure the hearing aids are providing maximum benefit. Hearing aids are an investment in improving one’s quality of life to be able to hear the world around you and participate in social situations with family and friends.

How long will my hearing aid last?

The average life of a hearing aid is about five to seven years. Regular appointments to see our hearing care professionals will ensure your hearing aids are functioning and programmed properly. Hearing aids come with a three year warranty covering repairs and maintenance and a two year lost and damage warranty. Many hearing aids are still functioning well after seven years, while others may need reprogramming, repair, or replacement.

What style of hearing aid should I wear?

Our hearing care professionals will work closely with you to recommend an option that will best suit your hearing loss, needs and preferences, lifestyle and budget. We take into consideration the size and shape of your ears and ear canals, dexterity, comfort level with using technology etc.

If your listening needs are simple, a basic hearing aid may be enough for you. If your lifestyle is more active and you need to hear better in more noisy listening environments, then a more sophisticated level of hearing aid features will give you more benefit.

The choice is ultimately up to you, but the most important thing is that your hearing is improved.


My hearing aids are weak or aren't producing any sound (“dead”)

  • Visually inspect the hearing aid to see if wax or debris has clogged the dome and/or the filter beneath and replace the filter as needed. Ensure that the microphone ports are also free from debris by using the cleaning brush or toothbrush to clean them.
  • Check the battery*. For battery operated aids, replace the battery and check that the battery door is closing properly. For rechargeables, make sure the charger is plugged in and that the hearing aids are properly inserted. They will flash when inserted properly.
  • Hearing can change over time. If the hearing aids are cleared and working properly, a retest may be recommended and adjustments can be made so that you are able to hear better.

If the hearing aids(s) are still not working, call the clinic and our hearing care professionals will be able to take a closer inspection to determine and fix the issue or send them out for repair. For aids that are sent back to the manufacturer for repairs, we will set up a pair of loaner aids that you can wear in the meantime. 

*After removing the sticker on a new battery, let it “breathe” to activate it. Also, a good battery tester trick is to drop the battery onto a hard surface. If it bounces, it will need replacing soon and if it doesn’t, it’s good to use!

My hearing aids are “whistling” or producing feedback

  • Check the fit of the hearing aid in your ear. Try reinserting and ensure the speaker is positioned inside the ear canal.
  • Earwax may be the issue. The amplified sound may be bouncing off a blockage and escaping out of the ear
  • For earmolds, any weight fluctuations can change how the earmold sits inside the ear canal. A poor fit will allow the sound to leak back out.
  • For any Behind-the-ear (BTE) style hearing aids that use tubing, the tubing itself may be damaged or not fully connected and will need replacing.


If the whistling is still happening, call the clinic and our hearing care professionals will be able to inspect the aid(s) as well as look inside your ear to help determine the issue and recalibrate as needed.

My hearing aids sound distorted

  • Check for any damage to the receiver, the wire that attaches to the hearing aid and send the sound out the speaker and into your ear. If there is damage, it will need replacing.
  • Have the hearing aids been in contact with any moisture recently? While hearing aids are weatherproof, moisture can affect functionality of the microphones, receivers, and the electrical components inside the hearing aid itself. Use a drying kit or bring them into the clinic for maintenance.
  • If your hearing aids have multiple programs, the program may have been changed accidentally which will change how you hear sounds. Restart the aids to reset to your main program, or program 1.
  • For battery operated hearing aids inspect the battery contacts (the little metal prongs that connect with the battery when the door is closed) for any corrosion and that the contacts are making contact with the battery. Rubbing alcohol can be used to clean the contacts.
  • For rechargeable hearing aids, ensure that the aids are fully engaged in the charger and that the charger is plugged in and on. Try a different program or memory. You may have accidentally switched to a wireless setting meant to be used with an assistive listening device.
