Hearing Aids in Denver, CO
Have you been having hearing problems? Call Hearing Associates in Denver, CO. For over 35 years we’ve helped patients just like yourself once again enjoy the beauty of the sounds around them.
When you first come to our office, we perform a number of tests and evaluations to determine the level of your hearing loss and how hearing aids might help you. We then make custom ear molds to ensure your aids fit comfortably to your specific ear shape.
If you’re a musician, we have musician’s ear plugs that allow you to hear and appreciate the music around you without exposing your ears to noise levels that can further damage your hearing. We also have hearing aid options that are bluetooth compatible, as well as numerous cell phone accessories.
When you receive the hearing aids you’ve chosen, the hearing professional ensures that all the settings are correct and that the aids fit comfortably. If needed, we can also remove cerumen, or earwax, from your ear canal to alleviate any discomfort.
If your hearing aids are ever damaged or stop working properly, we can determine if they need a simple repair or need to be sent to the manufacturer.

Bluetooth Hearing Aids
Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids can be wirelessly connected to devices such as televisions, cell phones, FM systems, GPS systems, and PDAs, with the use of Bluetooth technology. Bluetooth technology works similarly to wireless Internet, where sounds are sent through an invisible electronic signal.
Cell Phone Accessories
Custom earmolds for cell phone headrests, Bluetooth compatible devices, hands-free and more.
Cerumen, or ear wax, can be removed from the ear canal so that it does not interfere with listening or comfort, especially for individuals who wear hearing aids.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
During your examination you will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
Evaluation and Fitting for Musician's Ear Plugs
Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.
Benign positional vertigo, or BPV, is one of the most common types of vertigo. BPV results when the crystals (otoliths) normally found in the inner ear are dislodged. Occassionally these crystals accidentally enter the semicircular canals and cause a spinning sensation. The Epley maneuver is performed by our audiologist to reset the crystals into their proper position relieving you of your vertigo symptoms. This procedure is done in office and is not covered by insurance.
