If you currently wear hearing aids, we hope you are enjoying the benefits of optimal hearing with your device.

We have the perfect solution … a spare pair of hearing aids!
New advances in technology
The newest hearing devices employ the latest digital technology that include many exciting features and benefits such as:

I’m ready for an upgrade, but what should I do with my older hearing aids?
When upgrading a cell phone, people often keep their old phones in case of emergencies like if their new phone breaks or gets lost. The same should hold true for your hearing aids as it is a smart idea to keep a spare pair for an emergency.
And even if you are still unsure about the need for a spare pair, we advise you to consider having us re-calibrate or reprogram your older devices. We know that there is a good chance that your hearing has changed significantly since you purchased them.
Isn’t one pair enough?
Having a spare pair gives you peace of mind in case of emergencies. Our clients find a spare set of hearing aids useful in many circumstances:
- While traveling
- At work
- To store at your vacation home or at a relative’s house if you visit often
- A “purse pair” – that way you always will have them among your essentials
- In your safe or a place where you keep valuables
Why have a spare pair?
Just like your eyeglasses or cell phone, it’s a major inconvenience to be without them. They are the tools that keep you connected to the world around you. Besides, unlike a mobile phone or a pair of reading glasses, there is no way to just borrow someone else’s hearing aids in the case of an emergency. Hearing aids are calibrated to your individual needs.
Do you have a relative who may benefit from a spare pair? Hearing devices make a great gift.
Hearing well helps the entire family as it ensures clearer communication and overall understanding. If you have a loved one that “forgets to wear” hearing aids when visiting you, you may want to consider giving the gift of hearing with a set of new hearing aids. This way the older pair can “live” at your house and be ready to aid with your relative’s forgetful habit. We couldn’t think of a better gift that Santa could pull from his bag of toys that would help the whole family enjoy the season.
