Hearing aids are an indispensable part of your day, which means they are exposed to many different temperatures, environments, and elements.

Should I Get My Hearing Aids Repaired or Buy New Ones?

At Hearing Health, after we review your hearing loss, lifestyle needs, and the potential benefits of new technology, we may recommend new hearing aids. Ultimately, you will be able to make the most informed choice for yourself on whether to keep your current hearing aids or upgrade to newer technology. Our clients at Hearing Health appreciate that we respect and honor their decisions.
About one third of all people over the age of 65 in the U.S. suffer from hearing loss. For many of those people, hearing aids provide the quality sound that they would otherwise not be able to enjoy. Millions of Americans rely on their hearing aids to hear on a daily basis. When hearing aids break or stop working unexpectedly, those people suffer. Living with hearing loss is stressful, frustrating and it can really take a toll on your self-esteem. Hearing aids provide the solution to this problem, but just like any other electronic device out there they do have the potential to break or malfunction. At Hearing Health, we are proud to offer the best service for hearing aids of Portland. Bring your hearing aids in and we will have them back up and running in no time.
