While your hearing aids are designed to deliver crystal-clear sound for many years, their longevity solely depends on how well you look after them.

Due to the nature of them sitting inside of your ear, they are subject to all kinds of bodily fluids such as sweat, debris, and earwax.

Regular cleaning and care will help keep your devices working in top condition while ensuring your ears don’t get blocked or impacted.

As Ventura County’s most trusted hearing & balance experts, no one else is better than our highly talented team to look into your hearing aids.

What Happens at a Clean & Check Appointment?

At West Coast Hearing & Balance Center, we take pride in helping individuals understand speech. This starts with the proper functioning of hearing devices.

To ensure your hearing aids are working properly, we provide a thorough clean and check service, which allows us to clear out any stubborn wax or debris. This includes disinfecting your hearing aid and an earmold, as well as other key parts.

The most common pieces we replace are the dome, wax filter, and receiver wire.

With hearing being more of a complicated puzzle than a one-size-fits-all, we assess your speech function to indicate any brain processing issues. This is particularly important as it could indicate an existing medical condition contributing to your hearing challenges.

Following this, we perform a listening check using the Ling sounds (different pitches) to ensure no distortion is noted. The test box from VeriFit measures the verification.

During this test, we place the hearing aid in a test cavity and present a speech sound sample, including samples of all the sounds you would hear in the English language.

Using this, we measure the output of the hearing device according to that sound sample. This allows us to measure how well the device is functioning across the whole speech range.

At Your Greatest Convenience   

Regardless of where your hearing aid is from, we work will all types of hearing devices, from in-the-ear to behind-the-ear to older models and providers.

The best part about our service is that we are available straight away, meaning it has never been more convenient to schedule a clean & check.

At just $55.00, your device will get a thorough inspection and cleaning using some of the best tools and expert equipment on the market.
