Audiologist vs. Hearing Instrument Specialist
The primary differences between an audiologist and a hearing instrument specialist are their level of training and scope of practice. Audiologists have either a master’s degree or doctorate in the field of audiology (a total of 6 – 8 years of higher education) along with an extensive amount of training in matters relating to the ear. By contrast, hearing instrument specialists primarily have on-the-job training in a less formal setting.
The scope of practice is another consideration, for while both professions work with hearing aids, audiologists have a significantly larger wealth of knowledge. Dispensers are trained strictly in hearing evaluations for the purpose of fitting hearing aids, while audiologists are trained for full diagnostic evaluations of the patient’s entire auditory system, from the outer ear to the brain.
Rebranded Hearing Aids
Locally Owned & Operated vs. Franchises
- Are you an audiologist or a hearing instrument specialist?
- How many years of experience do you have?
- Do you sell multiple brands of hearing aids?
- Are your hearing aids “locked” or can another local office make programming changes to them?
- Are your hearing aids labeled with the major manufacturer’s names?
- Do you schedule aftercare appointments for as long as I own the hearing aids?
- Is the business locally owned and operated and decisions made at the local level?
I have been wearing hearing aids for over 40 years, I was due for a new pair. After learning about Hearing Dynamics and being tested, I was fit for new aids by my Audiologist Beth, who took the time to explain my hearing loss and how these new aids would improve the loss. What an improvement these new Starkey aids have made. I forgot how loud the birds chirped, and I could hear people speaking to me once more with a lot more clarity. I love my hearing aids and the service is superb!
