During hearing aid repairs, some parts will have to be replaced. When a receiver (speaker) or microphone is replaced, there may be a dramatic increase in the sound volume. There are instances when a technician needs to turn up the volume of your hearing aid to compensate for other deteriorating parts. This is where the importance of choosing an audiologist to handle hearing aid repairs. Audiologists have access to a person’s specific hearing needs and can therefore control and adjust the settings. A repaired hearing aid may have its settings reset so an audiologist plays a big role in making sure that the hearing aid program matches the specific audiological needs of a patient.
