Electroacoustic Analysis (EAA)
EAA is a quick test usually done on repaired or newly purchased hearing aids to ensure that they’re functional and all the features work as expected.
How We Conduct EAA
First, we use our hearing instrument test boxes to conduct a series of tests on the hearing aid. We have to ensure that it meets the manufacturers’ specifications for hearing aid performance. However, this is a general assessment that does not include the appropriate programming for the wearer yet.
We will first determine whether the hearing aid is operating according to the conditions specified and required by the manufacturer. This procedure is necessary to determine whether the hearing aid has to be returned to the manufacturer for repair.
Reminders About Hearing Specifications
If the cleaning and receiver replacement do not meet the specifications after running the tests, the hearing shall be returned to the manufacturer for repair or replacement. Meanwhile, if the hearing aid functions as it should, but our client has trouble hearing, more hearing tests will be performed to detect underlying hearing conditions.
Your Hearing Aids Need Proper Care
You wear your hearing aids daily, and these are prone to dirt and wax buildup if left uncleaned for a long time. Since these aids are subject to harsh environments, they require the best hearing aid maintenance for longevity.
We recommend this service to hearing aid wearers who aren’t hearing as well as they’re used to. If you’re currently experiencing this, schedule a consultation today for better insights about your condition.
