Offering Hearing Aid Repairs In San Antonio, TX
Prescription hearing aids are an essential piece of equipment for those who need a little extra help when it comes to hearing and communicating with others. They help you connect with friends and loved ones and carry out basic everyday tasks, but when these amazing pieces of technology don’t perform as designed, it can be very frustrating.
To overcome the challenges of underperforming or non-functioning hearing aids, the Audicles Hearing Services team now offers hearing aid repairs. Whether you take advantage of Virtual Audicles for troubleshooting or programming support or bring them by the office for maintenance and/or repair, we’ve got you covered.

Our partnerships mean that our hearing aid technicians are able to find the right solution to fix your hearing aids.
Three Common Hearing Aid Repair Issues
We’ve repaired thousands of hearing aids over the years and come to realize
that the majority of repair issues fall into one of three categories.
Wax buildup penetrates into the delicate electronic components and causes them to malfunction.
Quick Tip: You can avoid most of these issues if you develop a faithful habit of daily cleaning and care of your hearing aids, avoid getting them wet, and perform frequent inspections of your device to identify problems before they get worse. Similar to how regular oil changes and scheduled maintenance extend the life of your car, deep cleaning and scheduled maintenance of your hearing aids also improve their level of performance and longevity.
The Repair Service
The good news is that our specialists have the right know-how and equipment to get you fast, effective results if you run into a problem with your hearing aids.
In most cases, we can quickly diagnose your hearing aid issue and then get them back to full working order while you wait.
However, if your device is completely broken or the problem is beyond what our team of experts is able to resolve in the office, we’ll find a solution by contacting your hearing aid manufacturer.
In some cases, we’ll have to send them to the manufacturer for repair, which means we’ll send them via Federal Express or DHL so that you get them back as soon as possible, but those delivery services will cost a little extra.
Our Loaner Service
An added advantage of working with our experts is the fact that we have plenty of reconditioned hearing aids available, so if we can’t have your hearing aid back to you quickly, we’ll be able to provide you with a loaner pair until we can.
Your loaner pair will be as close as possible to your regular pair, but they may not be perfect.
However, they’ll do in a pinch, making it possible to continue your regular daily schedule without interruption.
FAQs About Hearing Aid Repair
Q. How Much Do Hearing Aid Repairs Cost?
A. If we are able to repair your hearing aid in the office, the cost may be as low as $75. If the aid has to be sent to a hearing aid repair factory, the cost will range from $300 to $500, depending on the age of the hearing aid and the length of the warranty provided with the repair.
Q. Why Should I Trust You To Fix My Hearing Aids?
A. Audicles has been repairing and servicing hearing aids for over 76 years, and every year we are able to repair hundreds of aids for clients, many without even having to send the hearing aid to a factory to be repaired!
Q. Can’t I Just Repair My Hearing Aid At Home?
A. No. Outside of daily cleaning, keeping them dry, and changing batteries, you need to leave any hearing aid repair to the experts. In addition to invalidating the warranty on your device, you can do a lot of damage to the delicate technology included in your hearing aids and damage the programmed settings that are designed to provide you with very specific hearing assistance.
Q. Should I Replace Or Repair My Hearing Aids?
A. In some cases, repairs might cost more than replacement, but that’s usually not the case. If the damage is irreversible, replacement might be your best option, and it might be covered by your device manufacturer. If your hearing aids have a long history of needing repair, are out of warranty, or are approaching or beyond five years of service, replacement makes a lot of sense, especially if you consider the advantages of more advanced technology.
Q. How Long Will Repairs Take?
A. There’s no set amount of time for how long a repair might take. Severe damage, which might require the device to be sent to the manufacturer, will take longer than minimal damage that can be repaired in the office. Checking your device when you clean it in order to identify minor damage before it becomes worse can shorten repair time as well.

“Before my visit to Audicles, I wasn’t sure if I could afford hearing aids”
I was in the car with my husband, son, and two young granddaughters. Everyone was engaged in an obviously fun and spirited conversation. Although I could hear they were speaking, I couldn’t make out what they were saying. I felt sad and left out of the conversation. I realised was up to ME to do something to change things.

“You will be treated as a human, not a patient”
My parents noticed my hearing loss when I was younger. I was 3 years old and my mom would be brushing my hair and talking to me, and I would say, ‘Mom, wait, I can’t hear you. Let me turn around so I can see you!

“It doesn’t make you old. It doesn’t make you broken. It will change the way you live life“
I’ve always had bad hearing since I was a kid. But I noticed how bad it had gotten with the pandemic and wearing masks and realizing I was just good at lip reading. I work in customer service. So I felt it was affecting my job and needed to do something about it.
