Commonly Asked Questions

What Type of Hearing Aid Is Best for Me?

Our audiologist will work with you to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your hearing aid. We understand that certain types of hearing aids do not work well for everyone so that is why we offer a trial period to ensure that you are comfortable with your hearing aid.   

I’m not sure if I should get hearing aids what should I do?

If you suspect that you may have hearing loss make an appointment with our audiologist at Greenwich ENT or Stamford ENT and we can test your hearing. The test results will help us determine whether or not you should see one of our ear, nose and throat doctors before potentially being fitted for hearing aids.

How Much Would I Expect to Pay for My Hearing Aids?

Typically depending on the type of hearing aid, level of hearing loss and features selected for that hearing aid will help determine the cost.  

Will I Need One or Two Hearing Aids?

When inner ear damage occurs it tends to affect both ears. We would fit you with hearing aids for both ears if that is the case. If you suffer from hearing loss in one ear and not the other, we can fit just for one ear. We generally like to fit for both ears because this will help improve your speech understanding in noise and the source and quality of the sounds.

I Am Not Sure How Severe My Hearing Loss Is

There are different levels of hearing loss depending on certain factors that can affect your hearing. There are three common types of hearing loss:
sensorineural hearing loss, conductive hearing loss and mixed hearing loss.

What Are The Different Types of Hearing Loss?

Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Damage is caused to the inner ear nerves that can result from age, medical conditions, trauma, loud noise exposure and genetics.

Conductive Hearing Loss
: Obstructions to the middle ear and the bones in it as well as the outer ear that prevent sounds from coming into the middle ear. You may be hearing more distorted or faint sounds or a combination of both.

Mixed Hearing Loss: When both sensorineural and conductive hearing loss are both present.
