Rechargeable Hearing Aids Q & A

How do hearing aids work?

Modern hearing aids are small electronic devices powered by tiny batteries. The hearing aids fit in or behind your ear and increase the volume of sounds entering your ear canal. There are three components to a hearing aid:

  • A microphone to receive sound
  • An amplifier to increase the sound’s volume
  • A receiver to transmit the amplified sounds to your inner ear

Hearing aids work particularly well for people who have age-related hearing loss, as well as for people affected by hearing loss caused by health conditions or medications that they’re taking.

What are the advantages of rechargeable hearing aids?


Rechargeable hearing aids are easy to recharge overnight while you’re sleeping, so you never have to worry about the battery running out during the day. Rechargeable batteries have a much longer lifespan than single-use batteries and only need replacing once or twice a year, meaning you can avoid the bothersome task of replacing worn-out batteries.

Rechargeable hearing aids are not only far more convenient to use on a daily basis; in one year they also cost less to run than single-use batteries. This longevity, coupled with the more environmentally friendly materials used in rechargeable batteries, makes rechargeable hearing aids a better choice, especially if you’re concerned about your impact on the environment.

Hearing aids are continually developing and improving; however, these improvements take more power from the batteries. That means that as technology advances, single-use batteries run out more often and more quickly, and are a less reliable method of powering your hearing aid. Meanwhile, rechargeable technologies that will supply longer life to your rechargeable hearing aids are also developing.

Can I buy my rechargeable hearing aids without seeing an audiologist?

You can buy hearing aids on the Internet, but they won’t fit as well or improve your hearing as much as the ones Dr. Pathak prescribes. It’s important to have your hearing assessed by a skilled professional like Dr. Pathak to ensure that your hearing aid is set up in precisely the right way to optimize your hearing.

You’ll also be able to use the ReSound Assist system, which enables you to contact the clinic and have your hearing aid adjusted without needing to leave the comfort of your home.

Rechargeable hearing aids are a reliable option that gives you the freedom to enjoy your day with improved hearing, with the bonus of remote adjustments. Call Professional Hearing Aid Service today, or book an appointment online.
