Hearing aids are reliable instruments most of the time, but occasionally they have issues that frustrate users. The most common problems with hearing aids are sound, volume, distortion, and feedback. Before deciding the aids are broken, there are several steps one can take to address these issues. Inspecting the hearing aid is a good place to start. If there is any wax build up, the aids should be cleaned, also, corrosion on the battery door can cause sound distortion. Often, changing the battery can be a solution to multiple problems. At the Center for Audiology Services, we offer complimentary quarterly cleanings and check ups when you purchase a hearing system with us.
