There are three types of hearing loss: conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss, and mixed hearing loss. Our office can test your hearing with regard to all three types.
Consider these statistics:
Open the devices’ battery doors when you’re not wearing them (like while you’re sleeping). This will prolong the batteries’ life.
At the end of each day, gently clean your device by taking a soft tissue and wiping off any excess wax or residue build up from the day’s wear.
Keep your devices in a safe place. Keep them out of moist areas and away from pets and children. This will help you keep your devices from being lost or damaged.
Schedule and follow through with follow-up appointments every three months to receive regular maintenance on your device. That way, we can perform any adjustments as your hearing needs change over time.
Wear your devices whenever you are awake. This will allow your brain to adjust to your new hearing experience and help you get the most out of your devices and life.
Tinnitus is a medical explanation for hearing a sound in your ears that is not coming from the outside, such as a buzzing, hissing, or roaring sound. About 50 million people in the U.S. experience tinnitus for at least 3 months, although it can often be a permanent condition.
There is no known cure for tinnitus. However, research from the American Tinnitus Association (ATA) suggests that sound therapy can offer relief. This is where our EarQ hearing technology comes in! Our EarQ hearing aids powered by binax have tinnitus masking technology in the digital chip. Don can activate this technology for any patients who experience tinnitus.
