Comprehensive Hearing Tests in Albuquerque, NM
If you suspect you have hearing loss, or it’s time for an upgraded hearing solution, the fist step is a hearing test. At our hearing center we can administer a hearing test and we will go over your hearing history to determine how hearing loss affects your day-to-day life. After a discussion with you to see how hearing loss affects your life, we will perform a series of audiologic tests, including:
All of these tests will help our audiologist determine the type and severity of your hearing loss, so we can create a custom treatment plan to help you hear better.
Cerumen (earwax) can build-up inside your ear canal and cause discomfort and temporary hearing loss. If you are suffering from clogged ears due to excessive earwax, we can help you. Our audiologist can safely remove earwax in our office.
Tinnitus, also known as “ringing in the ears,” can be disruptive to your daily life. Millions of Americans suffer from tinnitus. Those with symptoms describe it as a ringing, humming, whistling, or whooshing sound that is heard in your head. If tinnitus is bothering you, we can perform a tinnitus test during your audiological evaluation. We offer a variety of tinnitus treatments, including hearing aids with a tinnitus masking feature. Together, we can help stop the ringing in your ears.
Hearing Aid Fittings
We offer a wide range of hearing aids at our hearing clinic. After your audiological evaluation, we will recommend a pair of hearing aids that we believe will help you hear and communicate better. We will then expertly fit and program your hearing aids to your individual hearing needs.
Hearing Aid Repair Services
If something isn’t working quite right with your hearing aids, bring them in and we can fix them. Whether you need an adjustment to the programming or you need a dome replaced, we can help you. We can make some minor repairs in office but for more serious repairs we can send your hearing aids to the manufacturer for you to be fixed.
Hearing Aid Cleanings
Your hearing aids sit inside your ears all day, every day. To ensure your devices continue to work properly it’s important to bring them in on a regular basis for a professional cleaning. Dirt, dust, dead skin cells, and earwax can build up in the tiny components of your hearing aids, causing them to malfunction. We can expertly clean your devices so they continue to perform their best for you.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
One of the most common causes of hearing loss in individuals of all ages is loud noise exposure. Noise-induced hearing loss can develop regularly as a result of repeated exposure to loud sounds or it can happen suddenly from an extremely loud sound.
At Better Hearing Audiology, we carry a wide range of custom earmolds and earplugs that can be fit to your unique ear shape. These earplugs will provide you with exceptional hearing protection, so you can be proactive about your hearing health.
We can create custom earplugs and in-ear monitors for:
