A few frequently Asked questions Answered.
How Much Do Hearing Aid Repairs Cost?
The cost to fix a broken or damaged hearing aid would differ based on a few things like whether the hearing aid is still under warranty, how damaged the device is, and the cost of replacement parts for your unit.
If you bought your hearing system from Hearfon and it is still under warranty, your repair costs will likely be minimal unless there is a breakage/battery leakage or exposure to water. Hearing aids that are no longer under warranty may cost a little more to fix. Cracked or broken shells on custom-molded devices can be expensive, but in some cases, these cracks can be repaired.
Are hearing aids easily broken?
The hearing aids available nowadays are small and light and therefore the internal components are delicate and any excessive force applied to the device may crack the outer shell, which is likely to compromise its function permanently. Internal components might be moisture resistant, but submersion can still permanently damage the unit
How do I know if my hearing aids are broken?
Only device diagnostics by an expert can determine that.
How or what would cause damage to a Hearing aid?
Swimming or showering without first removing your devices can cause damage, as most hearing aids are not rated to withstand water. Dropping them on hard surfaces would also damage them.
Can all types of Damaged hearing aids be repaired?
It takes a hearing aid expert to properly diagnose a damaged hearing aid, but you can assume your hearing aids are beyond repair if:
A manufacturer’s warranty essentially states that the product should work for as long as the warranty lasts — nothing beyond that is guaranteed. Balancing the cost of repairs with the cost of a new system (and how it will benefit your life) can be tricky, but our practice can help you determine a proper course of action after diagnosing the damage and estimating repair costs.
