Hearing aid repairs

With review and feedback from CEENTA Audiologist Eric Tyler, AuD (SouthPark)

Your hearing aids have been life changing. You never knew how much they would improve your hearing until you got them. Unfortunately, one of them stopped working recently. Do you need to get a new one, or can it be fixed?

What can damage a hearing aid?

Hearing aids are small and fragile. Not only is it possible to break them, but dirt and earwax can also cause issues.

Why would I want to have my hearing aids repaired?

In most cases, it is more cost-effective to repair your hearing aids, especially if they are custom-made to fit your ears.

When is it better to replace my hearing aids?

If your hearing aids are constantly in for repairs, especially if they are more than 5 years old, it could be time to replace them.

How long will I be without my hearing aids?

Hearing aid repairs are quick, usually taking only about one to two weeks if they need to be sent to the manufacturer.

Do you repair hearing aids on site?

Cleaning and minor repairs are done in the office, CEENTA Audiologist Eric Tyler, AuD, said. If your hearing aids cannot be repaired locally, they will be sent back to the manufacturer for repair.

Do hearing aids have warranties?

The standard industry hearing aid warranty from the manufacturer is for one year and covers repairs, remakes, and a one-time replacement for loss and/or accidental damage. However, CEENTA provides one to three years of repair warranty on all new hearing aid purchases. Specifics are discussed in detail when you order the hearing aid.
