Hearing aids typically last 3-5 years. Depending on how well you care for you devices, your hearing aids could last for much longer. Most patients choose to upgrade their hearing aids after 3 years to take advantage of the newest technology. As long as you take good care of your hearing aids and bring them in for regular maintenance and cleanings, then they should last you for many years to come.

We measure sound in units called decibels (dB). Using this rubric, when we increase sound by 3 dB, it means that a sound is twice as powerful. The length of noise exposure matters as well. The longer you are exposed to noises over 85 dB then the more likely you can cause damage to your hearing. Some common sounds and their decibel equivalent are shown here:

  • Normal conversation – 60 dB
  • Heavy city traffic – 85 dB
  • Average music through earbuds – 90 dB
  • Motorcycle – 100 dB
  • Rock concert – 110 dB

If you are having trouble hearing out of one ear, it could be due to a couple of reasons. It could either be impacted earwax or unilateral hearing loss. If one ear feels muffled it’s best to have your hearing checked immediately. Our experienced hearing specialists can look inside your ear and determine the cause of your muffled hearing.

Hearing aids range in levels of technology, features, and price. At our hearing clinic, we carry hearing aids at various price points for every budget. Whether you are looking for mini hearing aids or a device with Bluetooth connectivity, we can help you.

We provide hearing tests at each of our offices in Wallingford, Cheshire, and Ansonia, CT. A hearing test is the best way to determine how hearing loss affects you so you can find the right solution.

We encourage you to bring a loved one with you to your appointment. Although it is not required to bring someone, having a familiar face often helps you feel more comfortable. Plus, a loved one will know how long you have had trouble hearing and can provide some additional insight for us.
