Your Journey to Better Hearing Starts Here
Every path to better hearing begins with a comprehensive hearing test. We ask that your spouse, a family member or friend come with you for your appointments. Here's what's involved:
Hearing Device Fitting
We perform a cutting-edge process known as live speech mapping, which confirms your digital programming to ensure you get the most out of your hearing aids.
After the programming process is complete, we will teach you how to insert, remove and clean your devices so they work their best for you. You will keep a daily log of your listening experience so when you return for your 1 week post fitting appointment we can make real-world adjustments based on your new listening experience. If applicable, your devices, using Bluetooth technology, will be paired to your cellphone or other assistive devices.
We ask that you return in 3-4 weeks once your brain has had more time to relearn how to hear. We will again review the cleaning process and make any further programming adjustments that may be needed. Your periodic maintenance appointments as well as your annual appointment will be scheduled at that time. We check your hearing every year to ensure you are hearing the best you can for years to come.
If you have any concerns about using and handling your hearing aids, we are always available to help. We also offer YouTube videos, 4U2Hear Group classes or 5 Keys to Communication Success e-lessons as a means of receiving on-going support.
Live Speech Mapping/Real Ear Measurement
When it comes to hearing aids, the fitting process is of utmost importance. One pair of hearing aids might be great for one person but may do nothing for you! In other words, hearing aids require proper programming for you to receive their full benefit.
Hearing aids should be worn daily for optimal benefit. As such, they should be seamless and simple. You shouldn’t have to worry about missing a thing! That’s why here at Hearing Solutions of North Carolina, we always perform Live Speech Mapping, also known as Real Ear Measurement, when fitting hearing aids.
With this verification process, we guarantee an optimal fit for your unique hearing needs.
We understand how tinnitus - the proper name for that constant ringing or clicking in your ears - can affect your life. According to the Hearing Health Foundation, around 90 percent of tinnitus cases are associated with hearing issues. That's why we will provide a hearing test. We are confident that a combination of lifestyle changes and cutting-edge technology can provide long-term relief from your tinnitus symptoms.
Hearing Aid Repair
Hearing aids are sturdy, reliable electronic devices that are worn morning until night, day in and day out. It’s no surprise that hearing aids do require care and maintenance to ensure that they work at their best!

Please see us for any repairs you have. We know how important your devices are in your everyday life, and we'll do whatever we can to make sure your hearing aids are working at their best.
Custom Hearing Protection
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), about 22 million U.S. employees are exposed to unsafe noise levels at work, causing an estimated $242 million a year to be spent on workers' compensation.
Loud, persistent sounds all day long at work can cause long-term hearing issues, but they can also pose a danger when you're off the clock. According to the NIDCD, almost one in four (24 percent) of U.S. adults aged 20 to 69 have symptoms indicating noise-induced hearing loss.
It is essential to protect your ears and your hearing. Our custom-fit hearing protection is the best option to protect your ears. They are sold in a wide range of designs and colors suitable for many uses. They are molded from an impression that is taken straight from your ear. The method of imprinting is painless and takes less than 15 minutes.
Our custom-made earpieces deliver a fantastic fit, superior comfort, and excellent performance, whether you're a target shooter, a music fan, or need more protection at work.
We also stock hearing protection earmuffs as well as non-custom shooter’s plugs and foam EARs in the office. Stop in to see what we have to offer.
Assistive Hearing Devices
In various situations with challenging noise conditions, assistive listening devices (ALDs) may be beneficial in providing extra amplification. There are many kinds of assistive listening devices intended to enhance sound processing when you need additional assistance.
From versatile Bluetooth remote microphones, TV streamers and phone clips, we carry a wide range of assistive listening devices with varying features to better suit your needs. We are delighted to help you find the device that appeals to your lifestyle, whether you want to improve your experience watching television or catching up with friends.
