Frequently Asked Questions About Hearing Aids in Abbotsford

Will a hearing aid restore my hearing to normal?

A hearing aid will make it easier to hear, but cannot restore the natural function of your ear. Your hearing will be vastly improved.

How do I know if I need a hearing aid?

Here, at the NexGen Hearing Center in Abbotsford, we help you every step of the way in deciding if a hearing aid is best for you. We will conduct a free hearing test to determine if you currently have hearing loss. Once the hearing test has been completed, we will help you ascertain how much your hearing loss (if any) is affecting your daily life and/or activities. If you can’t hear as well as you could in the past several aspects of your life could be impacted. Hearing loss can gradually increase without us even realizing, which lends weight to the idea of consistently having your hearing checked.

Our Abbotsford audiologists are experienced in treating a variety of levels of hearing loss and their effects. Don’t go another day wondering if your hearing could be improved. Let our experts help you improve your hearing to its highest levels.

What style of hearing aid should I wear?

There are many factors that determine the style of hearing aid that’s right for you, including but not limited to factors such as your degree of hearing loss, size and shape of your ear and ear canal, and any special features that are required.

Your NexGen audiologist can recommend an appropriate style of hearing aid for you, get in touch today!

How much do hearing aids cost?

Hearing aid prices vary from several hundred dollars up to a few thousand, and it all depends on the advancement of the technology used in each device. Affordable hearing aids as well as more expensive options come with different features. You can think of hearing aids as coming in levels of “gold, silver, or bronze.” If your listening needs are simple, it just might be that even the most basic hearing aid is enough for you. If your life is more active and you find yourself wanting to hear better in more active and noisy listening environments, then a more sophisticated level of hearing aids features will give you more benefit. NexGen Hearing also offers financing options to help you with an affordable option to improve your hearing. Learn more about our lease to hear financing and other hearing aid financing options.

How long do hearing aid batteries last?

The life of a hearing aid’s battery is impacted by many factors such as the hearing aid model, battery brand, battery technology, and how the device is used. The model of the hearing aid is integral in determining the life of the battery. Some hearing aids are better than others in relation to battery consumption while others offer features that will more quickly drain a battery. Batteries come in four common sizes (10, 312, 13, 675). Based on a 16 hour day of wear, the average lifespan for a standard battery is listed below:

  • Size 10: 3 – 7 days
  • Size 312: 3 – 10 days
  • Size 13: 6 – 14 days
  • Size 675: 9 – 20 days

If you prefer, rechargeable hearing aid batteries are also available for certain models of hearing aids that greatly improve the ease of replacing your batteries. Consult with your Abbotsford hearing aid practitioner for additional details.

I give Nexgen 10 stars! I cannot thank them enough. Mani (and Shania) went above and beyond!! He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient and personable. I walked into Nexgen for the first time with a hearing aid that didn’t work at all and another that barely worked. My hearing loss was affecting all aspects of my life. Mani walked me through the process and provided me with a loaner pair. I was blown away! I am forever grateful. I can hear sounds I’ve never heard before. Did you know your hair makes noise when it moves? 😅 I can hear a casserole sizzling when it comes out of the oven, birds, turn signals in my vehicle...the list goes on. Thank you Mani for adding quality to my life!! I highly recommend Nexgen!!

I am more than pleased with the experience I have had with Mani. I found him to be thorough, patient and knowledgeable. He was not pushy at all as I felt his first concern was my satisfaction. Service is critically important in this industry and he certainly fulfills this criteria. If there is anyone out there who is delaying getting a hearing test and subsequent hearing aids, my suggestion to you is to try this place and I'm sure you will be satisfied. We are fortunate to have such a highly skilled audiologist in Abbotsford and I recommend Mani highly.

After moving to Mission from Abbotsford in April was looking to find a hearing place close by, was not happy with the one in Abbotsford which I had been going to for 9 yrs owing to change of staff. I had a problem with my left hearing aid so needed to find a place in Mission.After two tries with two company's no satisfaction decided to try Nexgen they do come to Mission a couple of days a week but could only get an app in Abbotsford . Well I was so impressed with the service and expertise and knowledge and felt so comfortable there feeling they do care about people with hearing loss and there was no pressure to buy a new one which I do realize I will at some later date as mine are 7 years old. I came out feeling very happy and content, would go back there for sure even if it was in Abbotsford . Thank you Mani..

Very thorough and informative ear examination and hearing aid demonstration. Pricing was very reasonable and the audiologist was very friendly ans not pushy. He basically told me that most people in my position wait a few more years before getting hearing aids, and outlined what the advantages are of getting them early. They offered me a 90 day trial with a 21 day with no money down.

Types of Hearing Loss

There are multiple types or levels of hearing loss that can include sensorineural, conductive and often times even a mix of these. A hearing test at Abbotsford Hearing Clinic can detect if you or your loved one are suffering from any hearing loss, and what the nature and degree of that loss might be. A hearing loss between 16-25 dB is considered minimal and is much the same as gently plugging your ears with your fingers. The next level, Mild Hearing Loss (26-40dB), can lead to missing the ends of words or not hearing shorter words at all. Even Mild loss can make it challenging to separate speech from background noise, and listening devices are advised. Moderate Hearing Loss (41-55 dB) can cause problems with phone conversations and result in a 50% decrease in the ability to understand speech from more than five feet away. This level of hearing loss can cause many to experience feelings of isolation and disconnection. If symptoms are more extreme than any of these, you could be suffering from Severe or perhaps Profound degrees of hearing loss, either of which can cause significant quality of life issues. In addition to all of the above, many individuals also experience High-frequency Hearing Loss (1500Hz-8000Hz). With this condition speech and most other sounds will seem loud enough, but speech will still not be clear and background noise will only make it worse. The most recent styles of hearing aids, including open fit and receiver-in-the-canal, are very good solutions for High-frequency loss. These designs enable the lower frequency sounds to enter the ear naturally, while amplifying and enhancing the higher frequency sounds, improving the clarity of speech significantly.
