With review from CEENTA Audiology Department Manager Kimberly Schneider, AuD
Getting hearing aids was a great idea. You can finally hear the world around you and you’re reconnecting to everything that hearing loss made you miss. And now that you have these aids, you should be good for a while, yes? Well, while you do have great quality hearing aids, you should still have them checked and upgraded on a regular basis.
How often should hearing aids be replaced?
It’s a good idea to have your hearing aids replaced every three to five years. While many can last longer than five years, you will get better sound quality from newer devices.
Can’t my hearing aids be repaired?
Yes, they can be fixed, but, again, the sound quality will often be better from newer devices. Plus, you may get to the point where repairing your hearing aids costs more than getting new hearing aids.
