Can I Program My Own Hearing Aids?

If you wear hearing aids or are anticipating you will need to wear hearing aids, you know that they will need to be programmed specifically to your hearing needs. Whether you are getting the right fit on new hearing aids or need to adjust the programming after some use, you might want to simply do it yourself.

So, the short answer to this question is, no. A hearing aid professional should always be called upon to program your hearing aids and ensure a good fit. But there are circumstances when you will want to troubleshoot your hearing aid yourself before contacting a professional.
