How much does it cost to have my hearing aids repaired?
The cost to fix a broken or damaged hearing aid varies based on a few things:
- Whether the hearing aid is still under warranty
- How damaged the device is
- The cost of replacement parts for your unit
Our hearing care professionals will let you know if there are any costs involved to repair your hearing aids, and how much it would be.
Do you offer loaner hearing aids while mine are being repaired?
In some cases, our Helix Hearing Care clinics can provide loaner devices so clients don’t go without while their hearing aids are out for repair.
What is considered beyond repair?
If you have an older hearing aid (more than five years), they may be beyond repair depending on the extent of the damage.
If there is external damage to the hearing aid, such as if they were stepped on, and the electronic components cannot be salvaged they may also be beyond repair.
What are the most common ways that hearing aids become damaged?
You may be wondering what are the most common ways hearing aids can go missing or be damaged. They include:
- Pets or small children playing with them
- Falling out when removing tight clothing or when removing a face mask into liquid
- Being pulled out when working in tight spaces and stepped on
- Being attached to clothes going through laundry machines
You should always be careful when handling your hearing aids. It is recommended to take them out in the same spot and keep them in a place where children and pets can’t reach them. If you do drop them accidentally, make sure you are careful where you step so you do not accidentally crush them under your foot.
