Custom Earmolds and Earplugs

Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.

Hearing Screenings

If you suspect that you might need a hearing aid, you will first need to have a hearing screening. At the time of the hearing screening, a case history will be taken to determine how much your hearing problem impacts your day-to-day life as well as the lives of your family.

Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection

During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.

Musician's Ear Plugs and Monitors: Evaluation and Fitting

Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.

Tinnometer Assessments

Our Tinnometer assesses and pinpoints a patient’s tinnitus (ringing of the ears) and accurately applies this measurement into the hearing aids. This helps many patients with relief of the ringing while wearing hearing aids.

Tympanometry

A tympanogram is a graphic representation of the relationship between the air pressure in the ear canal and the movement of the eardrum, or tympanic membrane, and the tiny bones in the air-filled middle ear space. When the eardrum is disturbed by a sound, part of the sound is absorbed and sent through the middle ear while the other part of the sound is reflected. The information derived from tympanometry provides additional information regarding middle ear function, especially Eustachian tube function.
