Frequently Asked Questions About Hearing Aids in Vancouver Kitsilano

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 Hearing 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.

Great experience at NexGen Hearing Kitsilano, Vancouver, BC.Audiologist Peggy Hatzoulis was thorough and efficient with her assessment, answered all questions clearly while reviewing my hearing profile; she checked for device updates, and installed useful apps. Peggy is energetic and knowledgeable as well as being a great listener. I would highly recommend this hearing clinic and this excellent Audiologist.

Verna is wonderful, as was her receptionist Sinead. I felt so welcomed every time I was in the office. Sinead even realized it was my birthday and gave me a card! Small touches like this are rare. Verna went through everything in detail, I knew all my options and what was going on. Could not recommend more.

After considering many brands and locations to improve my hearing I finally chose Nexgen Hearing in their Kitsilano office in Vancouver B.C. I am so happy to having done so because this office offers the perfect balance between a very good high tech product and a magnificent team: Ms. Verna Lee (Registered Practitioner) and Ms. Sinead Waters (Client Care), they are just awesome! They are very knowledgeable, with good disposition and high customer service orientation, always willing to go the extra mile. The team is readily available to respond promptly whenever it is needed. Keep up with the good work!

The worries and excuses you have about your hearing ("I don't think I need any help.... We can just turn the TV up louder..... If the people around me would not talk so loud, I would hear.... Will aids change my appearance, make me look old?") do not happen when you visit Katarina and Kirsten for a test. They are professional, friendly, and reassuring and, for good reason. I have had my aids for a few weeks now: No one notices them, the noise in restaurants no longer interferes with conversation, music sounds sharper, and my wife does not need to talk loud any more. The service for both batteries and advice is prompt and courteous. Care is taken in instructing you how to apply and look after these miniature aids. This means you are not constantly worrying -- put them in and wear them all day. They can change the quality of your life.

My new Oticon hearing aids are amazing, the sound quality is superb. Now, I am not asking everybody to repeat what they have said to understand them; and when I answer the phone I know who I am speaking with. These are a vast improvement over my last set. Thanks, Ken

My recent experience was positive in every respect when I got hearing aids at Mainland Hearing in Kitsilano. The testing and trial period went far better and more quickly than I expected, and the quality of my hearing as a result has been remarkably improved. I appreciated the careful attention Dr Vavrovicova provided in answering my questions clearly and explaining all aspects of the technology and medical issues that were being addressed by the hearing aids. I could not have hoped for better service or more professional attention to solving my hearing problems.
