Hearing Aid Fitting in Bay City, MI

To receive an optimal hearing aid fitting, Bay City, MI area residents turn to Bay Area Hearing. We adjust your hearing aid to your individual requirements by determining your personal hearing profile, or "audiogram." This is done by testing your ability to hear a variety of speech and environmental sounds.

Once you have told us your problems and your personal expectations with regard to your hearing, we provide you with detailed advice on the most appropriate products and facilities to meet your requirements:

  • Which ear has a problem hearing?
  • Which style of hearing aid is most suitable for you: analog, digitally programmable or fully digital?
  • Do you want to regulate the volume of the hearing aid yourself, or would you prefer a hearing aid that adjusts automatically to any hearing situation?
  • Which aid best suits your hearing loss or your personal situation? A Completely-in-the Ear, In-the-Canal, In-the-Ear (ITE), or behind-the-ear aid (BTE) aid?

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

To determine the optimum settings for your hearing aids, we use your audiogram and your personal ear impressions. This adjustment process is carried out using a computer. When adjusting your hearing aids, we take various measurements to check how well you can hear. Once we teach you how to operate them and instruct you on the energy supply (batteries), you should wear your new hearing aids for a few days in your regular surroundings. Based upon what you tell us about how well you can hear in your everyday surroundings, we will make any necessary final adjustments to your hearing aids.

Once your hearing aids have been fitted to your complete satisfaction, we will provide you with detailed information on how they should be maintained. Of course, you can have your hearing aids checked by us at any time. This will ensure that the sound quality remains as good as ever, and will extend the life of your aids.
