At The Hearing Room, we do hearing testing, sell and service hearing aids and related products to the people of Oshawa and Stouffville areas. We carry hearing aids to improve your hearing, as well as accessories and batteries to go with your current hearing aids.
What is a Hearing Aid?
Hearing aids are small devices that help amplify sounds intelligently, and are programmed by a hearing healthcare professional for the individual wearing them, based on that person’s unique hearing loss.
Hearing Aid Styles
The hearing aids we carry come in a variety of styles and levels of technology. Each style is suitable for people with different severity of hearing loss and needs. Some hearing aids will fit in your ear where other styles may have a part of the aid rest behind your ear.
When you visit our clinics, we always recommend the hearing aid style and model that will work best with your ear and the nature of your hearing loss. While people prefer the invisible models because they are more discreet, they may not be suitable for you. Our end goal is to ensure you have a better hearing experience.

Technology in Hearing Aids
Hearing Aids have improved in technology over the past few years as a lot of research and development has been invested in hearing aid technology. Here are some of the new technology features that you can find in hearing aids.
Many hearing aids now can connect directly to cell phones, have accessories which allow for direct streaming from the TV and smart device apps which allow the end user to make changes to volume and other settings in the hearing aid.
Place your hearing aids into a special station to recharge the batteries rather than having to fiddle with replacement batteries. This type of hearing aids are especially helpful for people who have issues with fine motor control and would need assistance to replace batteries.

Receive digitized sound that is then amplified and sent to your ears. This helps sort out the background noise around you so you can hear the conversation, music, or TV program you want to hear.
