Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are an advanced solution for hearing loss. Current hearing aids are less noticeable and have better sound quality than ever before. They’re a lot different from the hearing aids of your parents! If you’re struggling to have conversations with family and friends, it may be time to give hearing aids a chance to improve your quality of life.

By working with several of the major hearing aid manufacturers, we can make sure to find the device that best fits your lifestyle, your hearing loss, and your budget. Still not sure? Ask for a hearing aid trial so you can be confident our choice is the right one for you.

Custom Ear Molds

One of the most common causes of hearing loss is noise exposure. Over time, loud sounds can damage the hair cells in the cochlea which do not grow back. This can occur through work like construction or even recreational activities like music or time spent at the shooting range. At Audiology and Speech Solutions, we work to provide you with custom earmolds designed to protect you from future or further noise damage. 

We offer specialized earmolds not only for hearing aids, but for hunters, musicians, swimmers, and those who work in loud environments. A custom-fit provides improved comfort and increased protection.

Custom Ear Molds for Musicians

Musicians are at risk for hearing loss and damage because of their constant exposure to loud sounds from live performances, concerts, band practices, etc. However, musicians just can’t use regular hearing protection because they need to still be able to hear their surroundings in order to perform properly. This is where custom ear molds for musicians serve their purpose.  

Custom ear molds for musicians are designed to lower the loudness of sound in a controlled decibel amount. They are usually made of silicone for comfort and durability.

Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive Listening Devices are small, hand-held devices that can help users communicate better in one-on-one conversations. Most ALDs have microphones that bring sounds closer to the ears and may even filter some background noise. Some assistive listening devices are designed for large facilities such as churches, classrooms, theaters, and airports. Other types are engineered for personal use in small settings and for one-on-one conversations. Almost all assistive listening devices can be used with or without hearing aids or cochlear implants. 

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are willing to pay for audiology services out of pocket, self-referral is possible. There’s no need to see a doctor to get a referral if you are not going to avail any insurance benefits. However, if you are going to avail insurance for an audiologist consultation, a referral is needed.
Currently, all diagnostic audiological procedures covered by Medicare need a physician referral, with the main requirement influencing reimbursement being the purpose of testing. Medicare covers procedures that are medically necessary and appropriate for a patient’s treatment and diagnosis. The physician must write in the medical record the specific sign, symptom, or complaint that necessitates the service for each treatment charged.
A hearing instrument specialist is state-licensed hearing health professional trained to evaluate common types of hearing loss in adults and fit hearing aids. Audiologists are the primary health-care doctors who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and manage hearing loss and balance disorders in individuals of all ages from infants to adults and the elderly. Audiologists are also versed in fitting and fine tuning hearing technologies including hearing aids and surgically implanted devices.
Hearing aid dispensers (HADs) are fully qualified professionals who assess hearing and provide hearing aid aftercare. To employ hearing technology, hearing aid dispensers must be qualified and apply for a license. Audiologists can evaluate and diagnose a broader spectrum of hearing and balance issues. An audiologist is better suited for providing services related to balance problems, earwax impactions, and noise-induced hearing loss. Hearing aid maintenance, cleaning, repairs, and fitting adjustments can be performed by either specialist.

As audiologists and speech language pathologists, we focus on holistically treating all aspects of communication through diagnostics.
