At the hearing aid fitting, you will receive the hearing aids you selected. They are programmed based on a prescription that is specific to each person’s hearing loss. The hearing professional may make adjustments after you try the hearing aids to make sure the settings and fit are ideal for you.
When a hearing loss patient selects a hearing aid style, custom-fit earmolds are often needed to ensure optimum performance and comfort. At iHear Unicare, you can expect to find the following types of earmolds:

Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose, we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
At iHear Unicare, we offer the following custom services in order to serve you best: Diagnostic Hearing Tests, Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting, Hearing Aid Repairs, Bluetooth Hearing Aids, Cell Phone Accessories for Hearing Aids, Musicians Earplugs, and Monitors.
Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
Bluetooth hearing aids come in most types, including behind-the-ear (BTE), mini BTE, in-the-ear, and in-the-canal styles, though each manufacturer provides a different array of products and accessories that are Bluetooth-enabled. Some of the available Bluetooth hearing aid devices are: Cell phone accessories, custom earmolds for cell phone headrests, Bluetooth compatible devices, hands-free and more.
Rechargeable hearing aids are available from most manufacturers allowing hearing aid wearers to charge the hearing aids each night, and wear the hearing aids for up to 18 hours each day before recharging again. Recent advances in technology have led to smaller and more discreet hearing aids becoming available with rechargeable options.
