Protective and Assistive Devices

Professional Hearing Services offers complete hearing evaluation and hearing aid services, along with a variety of other protective and assistive devices.

Hearing Protection Devices

Noise is the leading cause of hearing loss.  It can also lead to ringing in the ears (tinnitus), not to mention fatigue and stress.  Protection devices act as a preventive measure from hearing loss and other potential hearing issues. There are earplugs designed for all exposures to noise.  Some have filters to allow voices to be heard or music in the case of musicians.  Others are designed to block as much loud harmful sound as possible.  They can be custom fit for your ear or universally fit.  We can make an ear mold impression at any of our locations and order a custom mold for you.

Assistive Listening Devices

Phone Amplification/Aids

There are also telephones that have amplified rings as well as amplified speech. There are even text telephones and speakerphones.

Television Amplification/Aids

Many people have difficulty hearing the television or on the telephone at a level that is comfortable for other persons in the house.  There are systems available that allow the hard of hearing person to have their own volume for the TV.

Alerting Devices

These devices can assist in notifying the person that a sound is occurring by utilizing other senses, such as vision or tactile.

One to One Amplification

If you are visiting with someone who is hard to hear, then a personal listening system may be for you.  These include a microphone and headset or use of a telecoil in the hearing aid.  The spoken message is delivered right to your ear above the background noise.
