Hearing Aid Repair for Lufkin and East Texas
Besides helping you stay connected with friends and loved ones, your hearing aids help you continue to interact with co-workers, neighbors, and other members of the community so you can carry out the basic daily tasks of an independent lifestyle.
For those who need a little extra help with their hearing and communicating with others, hearing aids are a critical piece of hi-tech equipment. However, when they don’t perform as designed or your hearing aids are broken, it can be very frustrating.

Three Common Hearing Aid Repair Issues
Over the years, the majority of hearing aid repair issues we’ve seen in our office fall into one of three categories:
1. Wax buildup
Wax buildup that penetrates into the delicate electronic components and causes them to malfunction.
2. Excessive moisture
Excessive moisture causes them to short out or creates a faulty connection due to corrosion.
3. Broken components
Broken components and loose wires from daily wear, dropping and/or stepping on your device, or faulty components.
Daily cleaning and care of your hearing aids, keeping them from getting wet, and performing frequent inspections to identify problems before they get worse are ways to avoid or limit the cost of hearing aid repairs. Just like regular oil changes and scheduled maintenance extend the life and performance of your car, deep cleaning and scheduled maintenance help preserve your hearing aids and keep them performing as designed.
Hearing Aid Repair by Audiological Services
Our hearing aid repair specialist has the right know-how and equipment to provide you with fast, emergency hearing aid repair as well as ongoing troubleshooting and maintenance should you run into a problem with your hearing aids. In most cases, we can diagnose the problem and then get them back in working order while you wait.
However, when your device is completely broken or the problem is beyond what our expert can deal with in the office, we contact your hearing aid manufacturer for replacement parts, or we send them in for repair.
FAQ’s About Hearing Aid Repair
Q. How much does it cost to have hearing aids repaired?
A. The cost of an in-office repair may be as low as $75. However, if your device is sent to the factory for repair, repairs could cost between $300 and $500, depending on the age of the hearing aid, the extent of the damage, and the status of your hearing aid warranty.
Q. Why should I trust you to repair my hearing aids?
A. We’ve been repairing and servicing hearing aids for several years, keeping hundreds of clients happy, many without even having to send the hearing aid to a factory to be repaired. We also partner with major hearing aid manufacturers for training, parts, and technical support.
Q. Why can’t I just repair my hearing aid at home?
Q. When should I replace my hearing aids rather than have them repaired?
A. Sometimes, repairs can cost more than replacement, but that’s usually not the case. If the damage to your device is irreversible and it is covered by your device manufacturer, you certainly want to replace rather than repair. Additionally, if your hearing aids have spent almost as much time in the shop as in your ears (exaggerating, of course), are no longer under warranty, and/or are approaching or beyond five years of service, replace them in order to take advantage of new technology.
Q. How long will repairs take?
A. Simple repairs can be done while you wait. Those that need a little more time to repair or have to be sent to the manufacturer will take a little longer, but we’ll send them using express delivery services so you can get them back in your ears ASAP.
Q. Are there loaner hearing aids available while mine are in the shop?
A. If your hearing aids have to be sent to the manufacturer, we have to wait on a part, or for any other reason you might not have your hearing aids for a while, we’ve still got you covered. We keep plenty of used devices on hand to provide you with a loaner hearing aid as close to your own device as possible so you can go on about your daily routine until your device is available.
