3 Common Problems that Require Hearing Aid Repair
Over the years, we’ve repaired thousands of hearing aids. What we’ve noticed is that the majority of hearing aid problems that require our attention fall into one of three categories:
When earwax comes into contact with delicate electronic components, it can cause them to malfunction.
Too Much Moisture
Moisture buildup can cause the electronic components in your hearing aids to short out or lead to corrosion issues that interrupt electrical connections.
Damaged Components and Loose Wires
Daily wear, dropping your device, or stepping on it and/or faulty components will cause your hearing aids to malfunction as well.
Most of these issues can be avoided if you clean your hearing aids daily and follow scheduled hearing aid maintenance guidelines.
During cleaning, be sure to work over your bed or place a towel over your work surface to avoid damage if you should drop them. While you’re cleaning your hearing aids, inspect the wires and case, and contact us if you see any damage.
If your device comes with wax guards, be sure to change them as directed by your hearing care provider or your hearing aid manufacturer.
Invest in a hearing aid dryer, especially if you live in a high humidity environment, in order to prevent damage caused by moisture.

Our Repair Service
If you encounter a problem, we know that you’ll want your prescription hearing aids functioning perfectly as quickly as possible, and you’ll want to be without them for as little time as possible.
The good news is that our team has the right experience to get you fast, effective results if you run into a problem.
We have built our knowledge and expertise through years of experience and are able to deliver the right hearing device fix, complete hearing aid restoration, or hearing aid maintenance.
The All About Hearing team is experienced when it comes to working with many makes and models of hearing devices, including ReSound, Phonak, Widex, Oticon, Starkey, Signia, Beltone, and Miracle Ear.
We have a range of spare parts available in the office, meaning in many cases, we can repair your device in-house and have it back to you in no time at all.
Our in-office service costs between $20 and $170.
If we have to send your hearing device to the manufacturer for further investigation and the device is out of warranty and less than five years old, the repair fee is $300, but if it is older than this, it can be $500.
Sometimes, when the device is completely broken, we need to seek support from the manufacturers. We work with them to find a solution and get your device back to perfect working order. The instruments will be sent either via Federal Express or UPS in order to get them back to you as quickly as possible.
We emphasize that our prices include a full evaluation and full disclosure of what may be causing your issues so you can apply what you learn to your own hearing aid, cleaning, maintenance, and care practices.

Our Loaner Service
One of the added advantages of letting our experts take care of your hearing aids is that we can offer you a loaner set of devices while you wait for the repairs.
Whether you come to us for hearing aid repair in Big Spring, TX or at our Midland clinic, we have a variety of loaner devices on hand available while your device is being fixed.
Please understand that the loaner set won’t be exactly the same as the device you know and love, but we will be able to find a pair that matches your precise requirements and is a pretty close second to your device.
