If you are looking for hearing aid devices in Los Gatos, CA, you can count on a truly personalized experience when you visit Los Gatos Audiology. Our specialists want your hearing aid experience to be optimized for your best hearing clarity, physical comfort, and cognitive function.

Why Is a Customized Hearing Aid Important?

The manufacturer recommended settings for hearing aids are issued with the average hearing aid user – and average ear acoustics – in mind. This means that an average degree of hearing loss is addressed in the hearing aid software settings when they leave the factory. While these standard settings may satisfy the needs of many hearing aid users, they also often miss the mark, because they do not take into account the very personal hearing situation and individual ear acoustics of each patient.

That’s why at Los Gatos Audiology we offer custom-fit hearing aid services for our patients. When you visit our office, we carefully evaluate your hearing needs and perform adjustments to fit your unique needs. We also perform a systematic program of probe-microphone testing and verification, where your individualized optimum settings can be established with our Verifit2 technology by Audioscan.

What Is Different About Our Prescriptive Method?

When hearing devices are shipped from a manufacturer, the software settings are established with no specific users involved, i.e., software settings are established which are thought to be most advantageous for the proprietary construction of the hearing device.

When audiologists fit them to patients, the factory setting is changed, but usually to a setting at the doctor’s discretion, or at a setting typical for new hearing-loss patients. In effect, no real-ear testing or verification takes place in either of these supposedly prescriptive methods. However, at Los Gatos Audiology we go one step further than most.

Get Real-Ear Measurements for Your Hearing Aid Devices in Los Gatos, CA

Real-ear probe-microphone verification can play a huge role in establishing precise settings that are most beneficial to the specific wearer of a hearing device. The tremendous advantage of real-ear measurements is that it allows our specialist to evaluate your hearing while you are actually wearing the device.

The first step in the real-ear method is to actually measure the size and shape of your ear canal so that we know the acoustic parameters we are working with. Then, using a small microphone inserted in the ear canal, our specialist introduces a sound which is detected by the microphone, and that sound detection is compared to what the microphone senses without the hearing aid in place. From this comparison, through repetitive trial and error, the most useful software setting can be selected to fit your specific degree of hearing loss.

I've been a client of Christine Throm for over 10 years (and 3 moves... you always stay with the best). She is a VERY dedicated professional, she is knowledgeable, and caring. My hearing loss has never been managed more effectively and the she has access to the latest and most advanced technologies. She has personally selected her staff to reflect her own values and high standards. Everyone there is friendly helpful. To top it off, they are now conveniently located adjacent to the "Mission Oaks" campus of Good Sam in a suite of beautiful, "state-of-the-art" offices.She is the GREATEST! Enough said.

Dr. Christine Throm was very knowledgeable and thorough. After one visit I understood what my hearing losses are and what I could expect from hearing aids. I have visited other audiologists with poorer results. I will be returning to Los Gatos Audiology.

I’ve been a patient of Los Gatos Audiology for several years and am on my second set of hearing aids that have been prescribed here. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Dr. Christine Throm is the best. She’s always takes time to understand any aspect of my personal hearing issues to provide the best care for me. I simply wouldn’t go anywhere else.
