Comprehensive hearing services for everyone.
We offer diagnostic hearing tests for the people of Philadelphia and the surrounding communities. A hearing test is the first step in identifying if hearing loss is present and how to best manage it. During your appointment we will perform a series of tests to identify the exact degree of hearing loss:
If you work in an environment where the noise level can be hazardous, it’s important to have your hearing checked on a regular basis. At Listen 2 Life, we provide industrial hearing screenings that meet OSHA standards. We can quickly test your hearing and provide you with educational resources on how to best keep your ears safe.
Cerumen, commonly known as earwax, can build-up inside the ear canal and become impacted. When this occurs, you may experience muffled hearing, clogged ears, or temporary hearing loss. We can remove impacted earwax safely and effectively, so you can get back to hearing your best again.
Hearing aids are fit and fine-tuned to match your individual needs based on your hearing prescription. We will fit the hearing aids to your unique ear shape, ensuring they fit snugly and comfortably in or around your ear – depending on the style. We will also program the hearing aids to your exact hearing needs based on your audiogram and lifestyle.
Adjusting to new hearing aids can take some time. It’s best to be patient as your ears adjust to hearing certain sounds again. We offer hearing aid counseling to help you get used to your hearing aids. We will help you learn how to use your new hearing aids and will be with you through every step of the adjustment process.
Hearing aids use advanced technology to help you hear better. Sometimes a problem can arise with the hearing aids and you may need to bring them in for repairs. Our hearing specialists are experts in the different hearing aid technologies and can make most repairs in-office. If your hearing aids have suffered severe damage, we can send them to the manufacturer to be repaired for you.
To ensure your hearing aids last you for many years, it’s important to keep them clean and well cared for. We recommend bringing your devices in every six months for a professional, deep cleaning.
Many everyday sounds may seem safe but are actually dangerous for our hearing. Sounds that range between 85 and 100 decibels can cause hearing damage when exposed to on a regular basis, while sounds that exceed 100 decibels can harm hearing after a single exposure.
Loud noise exposure is one of the most common causes of hearing loss, especially in younger individuals. To keep your hearing safe, it’s important to wear hearing protection. At our hearing clinic, we can create custom fit earplugs, earmolds, musician plugs, and in-ear monitors to keep your hearing safe
Hearing ability is the number one modifiable risk factor for cognitive decline. People with untreated hearing loss experience a 30%-40% greater decline in cognitive abilities and an increased risk of developing dementia. Because your hearing ability is so deeply connected to your brain health, we offer Cognivue screening.
Cognivue screening is a five-minute, self-administered test that evaluates three cognitive functions: memory, visuospatial, and executive function as well as reaction time and speed processing. This screening is a major step toward identifying cognitive decline caused by depression, anxiety, and hearing loss. To learn more about Cognivue, please contact us.
Ringing in the ears, medically known as tinnitus, is a common phenomenon. Tinnitus is when you hear a buzzing, humming, ringing, or clicking in the ears when no external sounds are present. The symptoms of tinnitus can range from mildly annoying to debilitating.
If you have bothersome tinnitus, our hearing specialists can help. While there is no cure to stop ringing in the ears completely, we do offer masking hearing aids which can help. With tinnitus masking hearing aids, you can play soothing sounds to distract your brain from tinnitus. Contact us to learn more.
