Mobile Hearing Services
At Revolution Hearing, we deliver a full suite of hearing care services wherever you are most comfortable - whether that’s in our office or right in your own home. When you choose our mobile services, the level of care is the same as if you were to come to the office, but provided in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Mobile Hearing Tests
We bring portable equipment to your house to administer the hearing test. It can be quickly set up in your living room or another quiet part of the house. The hearing test(s) you take at home will be the same as the ones we administer in our office. These include a pure-tone test, speech test, speech-in-background-noise test, and tympanometry.
We also do a physical examination of your ears with an otoscope to make sure there is no earwax blockage or perforation of your eardrum. Both of these issues can cause hearing loss but can be treated without the use of hearing aids.
All of the tests are completely painless and non-invasive, and the complete hearing assessment takes about 60 minutes.
Mobile Hearing Aid Fittings
Prior to administering the hearing test, we’ll talk with you about your lifestyle, daily activities, and hearing issues. This helps us get an idea of which hearing aids might be best for you, so we can help recommend the models that might be most suited to your needs.
We also offer the Hearing Aid Test Drive™, which allows you to try out hearing aids before making a purchase. We know that you can’t really decide which hearing aids are going to work best for you without trying them out for a little bit of time in the environments where you actually spend your time. The Hearing Aid Test Drive allows you to try different hearing aids without needing to make a deposit or any commitment to buy.
All of the hearing aids you try will be programmed to work with your specific hearing loss profile. We’ll ask you how they feel, and you can guide us to change the way they sound. This is a normal part of the process. If you need to have your fitting adjusted at any time as you get started or as you wear the hearing aids, our team will take care of you. Some hearing aids even allow us to provide fitting adjustments through your smartphone while teleconferencing. If your hearing aids don’t offer this feature or if you prefer to see us in person, we will gladly return to your home to provide fitting adjustments as needed.
Mobile Hearing Aid Repairs
Hearing aids are sophisticated devices that live in the relatively inhospitable environments in and around our ears. While today’s hearing aids are robustly designed to handle what may come, they still may occasionally need to be repaired.
If you notice that your hearing aids aren’t functioning properly, or if they are visibly damaged, we will come to your home to make the necessary repairs. Some repairs take just a few minutes, while others may require that your hearing aids be sent back to the manufacturer. If they do need to be sent in, we can provide you with loaner devices so you don’t miss a single day of hearing!
Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs)
We offer a variety of ALDs to suit different lifestyles and hearing needs. While hearing aids are the most important tool with hearing loss, ALDs can give them an extra boost. Some common ALDs include:
• Amplified telephones, or telephones that transcribe the other person’s words
• TV connectors that help your hearing aids connect directly to the audio from your TV or stereo
• Accessory microphones that transmit the sound from an external microphone directly to your hearing aids
These are just a few of the options out there. We can help you determine which ALDs might be helpful for you during an in-home visit.
