3 Signs Your Hearing Aid Needs Repairs, Kerrville, Texas

For those who suffer from hearing loss, hearing aids are a vital tool that eases communication with friends, family, and colleagues. However, due to natural and accidental conditions, hearing aids can lose their effectiveness and need repairs. Here are three signs that your hearing device may be broken and may require hearing aid repairs.

3 Signs Hearing Aid Repairs Are Needed

1. Lower Volume

If you are no longer able to clearly hear conversations, there may be an issue with the volume control on your device. First, check the volume settings to make sure there were no accidental changes. You can also try changing the battery and cleaning the microphone and tubes. If the problem persists, take the device to an audiologist to assess if hearing aid repairs are necessary.

2. Diminished Sound Quality  hearing-aid-repair

A hearing aid that returns static, muffled noise, whistling, or interrupted sounds is a sure sign that something is amiss. This could be caused by a poor fit, a drained battery, clogged tubes, or damage to internal speakers or microphones. If you believe malfunctioning electrical components are the cause, your device may need to be repaired or replaced.

3. Physical Damage

Over time, the stress of regular use can result in damage to internal and external parts of the hearing aid. Some physical damage, such as cracks to the exterior shell and body, will be readily apparent. Other types, such as worn or dislodged tubing, broken switches, or loose wires, may require more careful inspection by a hearing instrument expert.
