The cost of the replacement pieces will be discussed and if agreed the job will be completed in front of your eyes.
How often should I do a reprogramming of my hearing aids?
The deterioration of the hearing thresholds of humans starts at about age 50. The slope of the decline is a function of your genetics, your overall health, your medication, and whether you have been exposed to a noisy environment (work or hobby). Therefore the rate of the decline can be different from person to person. If you feel that your hearing has gone down and it is about 2-3 years since you had a full hearing test, then best do a hearing test that would result in reprogramming your hearing aids.
