Hearing Aid Fittings


At Ahrens Hearing Center, we’ve been serving the residents of northern New Jersey, including patients in Fair Lawn, Hackensack and Paramus with expert audiology and hearing aid services since 1968. We know that the effectiveness of your hearing aids relies on more than just choosing the right devices. Proper fitting, programming, cleaning and maintenance are critical to their success and longevity. 

After we complete your comprehensive Audiometric Evaluation, we’ll discuss solutions with you and work together to determine which option is best for your degree of hearing loss, your lifestyle and various listening environments, as well as your expectations. We’ll help you choose the right hearing aids for your communication needs.

Fittings

Fitting hearing aids involves much more than loading a program into the device and placing them on your ears. While technology has evolved significantly, the best hearing aid fittings typically require many fine tuning adjustments to land on the right sound for you. Additionally, the physical fit of the hearing aids is equally important. Whether they fit completely in your ear, behind your ear, or a combination of both – there is an art to making hearing aids fit your ear well. A proper physical fitting of a hearing aid will result in something you can wear all day everyday and enable the proper amount of sound to reach your ear drum with minimal whistling or buzzing noises (feedback.)

We will also use Real Ear Measurements to confirm that your hearing aids are providing the right amount of amplification. We’ll insert a thin tube into your ear canal that is connected to a microphone and will be used to measure the volume of sound near your eardrum with the use of hearing aids. Then, we’ll carefully insert your devices and check sounds, at different pitches and volumes to find a comfortable level of amplification and program your device accordingly. This is the only way to verify that your hearing aids are providing the right benefit for you.

Proper hearing aid fittings, programming, and physical adjustments are essential for you to get the most benefit out of your investment. Making adjustments to find the right settings may be accomplished over a series of visits.

Care and Maintenance

Proper care and maintenance will extend the life of your hearing aids and keep them in prime working condition. In addition to fitting and programming your devices, we’ll teach youhow to clean and maintain them as well as change the batteries. Hearing aids sit in/ your ear which is a tough environment for a small electronic device and you can expect to need ongoing maintenance.

At Ahrens Hearing Center, our service doesn’t stop when your purchase hearing aids from us. In fact, we recommend that you bring your devices in to our offices for quarterly cleaning and maintenance checks.
