Frequently Asked Questions
We answer some of the commonly asked questions associated with hearing care services as well as hearing aid products and accessories
How Hearing Works
The ear is a complicated organ consisting of three main divisions: the outer, middle and inner ear. The outer ear, or auricle, is the large cartilaginous area that also includes the ear canal. Its main purpose is to channel sound to the middle ear.
The middle ear is filled with air and houses three bones generally called the hammer, anvil and stirrup. Sound moves from the middle air to the oval window of the inner ear, which contains the semicircular canals and cochlea.
Sound must be transmitted clearly and interpreted correctly in the brain for us to recognize it. The cochlea translates sound vibration into nerve impulses, which travel to the brain through the auditory nerve, completing the cycle of hearing.
Information About Hearing Loss
There are many causes of hearing loss. There are also many treatments. If you are experiencing loss in one or both ears, it can be frustrating and frightening, but Quality Hearing 4 Less is here to help.
You have many questions. The place to begin is with a call to our office for an appointment. Most often, we recommend a hearing test conducted by an audiologist.
Hearing problems need not disrupt your life. If they are, we have many solutions to choose from. Hearing aids are one of those solutions and may not be for everyone. If they are recommended, we offer a wide variety of top-end products and the services to go with them.
Hearing and Balance
Quality Hearing 4 Less also has the personnel to diagnose and treat, or refer out, people with balance problems. The inner ear holds the organs responsible for balance. Also called vertigo or dizziness, this condition is regulated by semicircular canals filled with fluid.
Diseases and injury can be responsible for this condition. Vertigo is often caused by an imbalance or injury in the inner ear. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is a temporary but recurring condition caused by loose crystalline matter sinking to the bottom of semicircular canals. This condition seems to be occurring more regularly in the general population. It is one of many balance problems that can be helped at Quality Hearing 4 Less.

Musicians’ Hearing Loss and Prevention
Musicians, from classical orchestras to rock groups, are exposed to high decibel ranges. Musicians suffer not just from hearing loss but also a ringing in their ears and various pitch-perception problems.
Tinnitus is perceived noise in the ears when no noise is present. Also called ringing or buzzing in the ears, tinnitus is estimated to afflict one in five people at some time in their lives. In older people, tinnitus is usually accompanied by hearing loss.
Ringing in the ears is a symptom of a medical condition: Circulation, injury, disease or age-related hearing loss. It is often related to a deterioration of the tiny hair cells in the cochlea that transmit sound.
There are several treatments for tinnitus, but none is a cure. Background sound machines are a popular aid to masking the noise, and some hearing aids have built-in noise settings. Classes available at Quality Hearing 4 Less help people cope with tinnitus and train the brain to accept it as background noise. There are also psychological training sessions available.
