Assistive Listening Devices FAQs

What are assistive listening devices, and how do they work?

In many cases, assistive listening devices can be used in conjunction with hearing aids. Assistive listening devices are specialized tools designed to enhance your ability to hear in various situations. They typically consist of a microphone, an amplifier, and a receiver. The microphone captures sound, the amplifier processes it to improve clarity, and the receiver transmits the enhanced sound to your ears. These devices can be invaluable in situations where background noise or distance makes hearing challenging.

Can I use assistive listening devices with my hearing aids?

Yes, in many cases, assistive listening devices can complement the functionality of hearing aids. By using both together, you can further improve your hearing in specific challenging environments. This combination provides additional support and versatility, ensuring you can hear more clearly in a variety of situations.

Are assistive listening devices covered by insurance?

The coverage of assistive listening devices varies depending on your insurance provider and the specific type of devices you require. It is essential to consult your insurance plan to understand your coverage for these devices. Our team can also assist you in navigating insurance-related inquiries.

Can I purchase assistive listening devices without a prescription?

Some basic assistive listening devices are available without prescription. These devices are designed for general use and may not require a professional assessment. However, more advanced or personalized devices tailored to your specific situation can be far more successful when under the care of a hearing care specialist or audiologist. We can guide you through the process to ensure you acquire the right device for your unique hearing issues.

What should I expect during the fitting and setup of assistive listening devices?

The fitting and setup process involves configuring the assistive listening devices to your specific hearing needs. Our expert team will guide you through the operation of the devices, ensuring you are comfortable with their functionality.
