We understand that you might be nervous about trying hearing aids, but with our 60-day right-to-return privilege, you don’t have to be. You have 60 days to see how hearing aids work for you. Use them at home, at work, wherever you go. If you aren’t satisfied with your experience, you can return your hearing aids at the end of the trial period and receive a full refund.

Hearing aids may not be right for everyone. For those with situational hearing difficulties – when watching television or during telephone conversations, for example - we offer additional products to meet your unique hearing needs.

Assistive Listening Devices

  • Bluetooth capability - Certain cell phones and other devices can be amplified via Bluetooth technology
  • Amplified phones - These are for people who have trouble hearing telephone conversations. Amplified telephones offer clear sound, so you don’t have to strain to hear what’s going on. Financial assistance is available for qualifying individuals through the Access Iowa program.
  • FM systems - Technology that helps reduce background noise, so that you can focus on the sounds you actually want to hear and not environmental noise.

Hearing Aid Accessories

  • Batteries - We have cards, which contain 8 batteries, for $10 each. We also have 5 cards for $45, offering a 10% savings!
  • Filters - Guard against ear wax build-up with filters, which will keep your hearing aids working effectively.
  • Dryer boxes - Remove moisture and extend the lifespan of your hearing aids with dryer boxes.
  • Eargene - Lotion for relieving itchy, irritated ears.
  • Otoclips - Clothing clips to help prevent loss of BTE hearing aids
  • Super Dry Aid Packs - Protect hearing aids from moisture.

Custom Hearing Protection

  • Swim molds
  • Musician’s ear plugs

What Happens Next

At Hearing Associates, you’re part of the team!

After an interview and a series of in-depth hearing tests, our audiologists will sit down with you and discuss your results as well. If we determine that hearing aids are the best solution, we will look at the severity of your hearing loss, your lifestyle, your particular hearing needs and challenges. We'll discuss your options and concerns, and then then recommend the type of hearing aids we believe will be most beneficial for you. We encourage you to ask questions, and go over all the different styles and choices before making your decision.

Once you have chosen your hearing aids, we take any required measurements and then will order them. When your hearing aids arrive, you'll come in to have them fitted and programmed. We perform tests to make sure that they are working properly and to your specifications before you walk out our door.

Maintenance and Follow-up Care

Hearing aids are an investment. In order for them to work most efficiently and last longer, proper care is required. We will teach you how to clean and care for your devices. We will show you to program your hearing aids, as well as how to store them and change the batteries.

We carry hearing aid batteries and additional products that will help you care for your devices, such as dryer boxes and filters to prevent wax build-up.

We also encourage you to bring your hearing aids into our branch in Albert Lea, Minnesota, main office in Mason City, or any of our other offices located in northern Iowa, for quarterly cleanings and maintenance, repairs or if you need help programming them.


There is a period of adaptation as your ears and brain reenter the world of sound. If you have any questions or concerns during this adjustment, please do not hesitate to ask. We want you to get the very most out of your hearing aids and are eager to help you in that process in any way.

You can find us in Mason City, throughout northern Iowa, and in Albert Lea, Minnesota. We look forward to teaming up with you on your journey to better hearing. Schedule your appointment at any of the Hearing Associates, PC practice locations.
