ONE OR TWO HEARING AIDS?
Our philosophy is, you wouldn’t buy one glove. If you experience hearing loss in both ears- you need two hearing aids. Why?
Not only can your balance be affected by only treating one ear, but it can also be a major risk! Many hazards (such as traffic and fire) require you to hear with both ears and know where sounds are coming from.
Having only one ear treated also poses another risk- for the untreated ear to become progressively worse due to auditory deprivation.
How Do I Choose a Hearing Aid?
Knowing which hearing aid is right for you depends on the type and severity of your hearing loss, as well as which environments you frequent and your activity levels.
Hearing aids use small microphones to collect sounds. A computer chip then converts the incoming sound, analyzes it and adjusts the sound based on your hearing loss. Then you hear the audio signals through miniature speakers in your ears.
During your hearing evaluation, we will determine which type of hearing problem you have. We will perform painless tests on your ears and ask you a variety of questions. Based on the results, our experienced experts may recommend seeing a medical doctor for a solution or recommend hearing aids.
Due to the very high number of hearing aids to choose from, our experts will guide you using your evaluation, to the best choices for you. You will be able to make the final decision yourself- a decision that is often an empowering choice after feeling helpless with hearing loss.

Questions About Prices?
One of the number one concerns we hear when it comes to hearing aids is cost. How much you want to spend will depend on a number of factors.
The extent of your hearing loss and the environments you spend the most time in, as well as your lifestyle, will affect this decision. This is because if you spend the most time at home, rarely speaking on the phone and not watching TV or listening to music, you may want to opt for a more basic model. However, if you’re a busy bee who’s going to and from work, traveling, and doing a variety of activities during the day- it would greatly benefit your life to choose a higher-performing type of hearing aid.
