Hearing Aid Maintenance in Sun City

Metro Hearing patients receive semi-annual comprehensive check-ups on their hearing devices. During this check-up, we verify proper function of the microphone, speaker, and amplifier. We remove any debris and moisture, and replace filters and worn-out tubing. As a courtesy, we also offer these services to those who have purchased hearing devices elsewhere. However, it is important that our clients are well aware of proper hearing aid maintenance to preserve the lifespan of their devices.

Additionally, we offer repair services for all brands of hearing devices.

If your hearing aids are not working properly, try these troubleshooting tips.
