Q: I’m excited about new Miracle-Ear technologies, and I’m interested in taking the next step to address my hearing loss. However, I’m also confused by so many choices. How can I know what’s really right for me?

A: Now is a great time to taking that next step, especially with so many advances in technology! And, yes, there are more choices than ever before — multiple solution levels, hearing aid styles and options. At Miracle-Ear, we’re equipped with the very best tools, processes and counseling skills to recommend the hearing aid that makes the most sense for you!

Listening and Learning


Even before we test your hearing, we perform a communication profile and lifestyle assessment. This provides us with a wealth of crucial information, including specific situations or environments where you have trouble communicating and where you’d like to experience improvement.

Getting a Complete Picture


Do you have trouble hearing conversation in noisy environments, such as restaurants? Do you enjoy golfing, fishing, sporting events or other outdoor activities? Does your employment involve meetings or working near noisy machinery? Are you a frequent user of a smartphone, tablet and/or computer? Is your biggest challenge hearing the voices of your grandchildren? The answers to these and other questions, along with the results of your hearing test, will give us a solid understanding of your audiological and lifestyle needs. With this complete picture, we can tailor a recommendation to you, so you get precisely what you need — nothing more and nothing less.

Evaluating and Adjusting


Long after you walk out our door with new Miracle-Ear hearing aids, our commitment to your satisfaction continues. At your aftercare appointments, we’ll evaluate how the new hearing aids are matching up with your desired areas of improvement, and we’ll make any needed adjustments. This is a key part of the Miracle-Ear Experience!™
