Hearing aids aren’t just available in a wide range of sizes and styles; they can also accommodate a variety of accessories. Deciding which, if any, will benefit you can be tricky. You may want to speak with an audiologist to learn more about a particular product.
Some of the more popular hearing aid accessories include:
Wireless accessories. Utilizing Bluetooth® technology, wireless accessories enable you to hear better in situations where there is a lot of background noise or distance between you and the speaker. These include wireless microphones, remotes and television headsets.
Transmitters and receivers. These are helpful in educational situations (e.g., a teacher’s words are transmitted directly into the student’s ears) and for children. Transmitters and receivers work together to overcome background noise, distance and reverberation and contribute to a better learning experience.
Power adaptors and cords. These add versatility by allowing direct input from various audio sources such as FM systems, MP3 players, TVs and computers. They are available with both monaural and binaural cords.
Assistive listening devices/personal amplifiers. A microphone placed close to the speaker amplifies the sound that reaches your ears, giving your hearing aids a boost. These are excellent for lectures, church services, theaters and television.
Earwax filters. Filters prevent earwax, a leading cause of damage to electronic components, from entering the hearing aid. This helps prolong the life of the instrument and provides you with clear, natural sound.
Cleaning kits. Keeping your hearing aids clean can result in a longer life for your instruments. Cleaning kits give you a leg up on keeping your device in prime working condition. They typically include a wax removal brush and pick, a tube and vent cleaner, a battery door opener and a battery replacement magnet.
Batteries. It’s wise to have extra batteries on hand in case your current ones die in the middle of an important listening situation. Spare batteries are especially helpful when you’re traveling.

I am very satisfied with the service provided. The reasons are: 1. I got all tests done the same day I came for the MD visit.2. I was able to get a pair of hearing devices for a week as a test-drive, that opened up my eyes to these kinds of devices and understand they can make a difference in my everyday life.
Dr. Herrera is very clear and straight forward with her diagnosis and treatment options. Also, she put ear tubes in my ears and the results were amazing! She described the process exactly – there were no surprises. I would recommend her highly!
Our daughter had tubes put in and adenoids taken out, and our experience has been great. The staff is great with our daughter and has made the entire process a lot less stressful for us and her. We will definitely be coming back when need be!
