Hearing aid replacement and upgrade

When to replace or upgrade your hearing aids?

How often you replace your hearing aids can vary. As they are an everyday use item, they can inevitably experience wear and tear over time. Hearing aids generally have a lifespan of 4-6 years. If you think it's time to upgrade your hearing aids, we suggest having a conversation with your clinician. They can explain what technology is available and how this might help you. 

Do I need a new hearing aid?

At Bay Audiology, we can assist you in getting the most out of your hearing aids by learning how to clean and care for them, as well as organising adjustments or hearing aid replacement parts if required.

Your clinician can also help you decide when you might be ready for new hearing aids, based on how your hearing aids are performing or changes in your hearing, and also what funding you might have available. Funding options such as the Ministry of Health subsidy and ACC are available every 6 years. 

The benefits of a new hearing aid

Today’s hearing aids can do so much more than just help with your hearing. Packed with the latest technology, they’re now smarter than ever and offer an array of improved features, including enhanced smartphone connectivity and better charging capabilities including rechargeability.
