Supporting all Hearing Aid Wearers Across Berkeley During These Challenging Times
Approaching 70 Years of Setting the Standard in Local Hearing Care
Some people believe that hearing aids are the solution to a hearing loss. But if you were to ask our patients, they would tell you that hearing technology is only part of the solution.
The more important part is having an audiologist to help you achieve the best performance from your hearing devices and care for your overall hearing health.
Berkeley Hearing Center opened its doors in 1955 and have been the hearing care experts that families across Berkeley, CA and the East Bay community have turned to for almost 70 years.
Having cared for tens of thousands of local people, multiple generations of families, and many local organizations, we’re very much considered to be the most trusted hearing care specialists in the area.
Through a methodical approach to hearing care, we help patients to choose the right hearing technology for themselves based on their unique circumstances, lifestyle, and budget along with a comprehensive level of care and support on their journey to better hearing.
If you or someone close to you is experiencing signs of hearing loss, your first step is to schedule a hearing evaluation today.
This quick, non-invasive assessment allows us to comprehensively check your hearing and instantaneously share our findings with you.

Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations
On a day-to-day basis, we don’t notice ourselves aging when we look in the mirror, yet when we review old pictures of ourselves, we can clearly see the differences.
The biggest problem with hearing loss is that like aging, it happens so gradually that it’s often impossible to notice any day-to-day differences. You have no way to compare your current level of hearing to what your hearing used to be like.
That’s why regular hearing assessments are so important. The earlier you can see a hearing care specialist upon experiencing the first signs of hearing loss, the better.
Advanced Hearing Aid Technology
A racing car without a racing driver will never win a race. It’s very much the same when it comes to hearing technology.
If the hearing devices are the racing car, our patients will tell you that we’re the racing driver that ensures that you get the best performance, that you’re configured to win the race, and that we’re ready when you need a pit-stop.
With a large selection of hearing technology, we work with you to make an informed recommendation based on your unique circumstances, lifestyle, and budget.

Some people describe it as a buzzing sound and some even compare it to having crickets in their ears, but if you’re experiencing a relentless ringing or humming in your ears, then it may be because of tinnitus.
Affecting an estimated 15% of the US population, tinnitus is much more common than most people realize, with over 50 million Americans experiencing the same challenges as you.
The good news is that there are ways to care for your tinnitus to minimize its impact on your life and our experienced team can help.
"My hearing aids have kept me working in the job that I love, made it easier on friends and loved ones and had a huge impact on my level of overall satisfaction with my life."
I realized I may have a hearing challenge when I began not hearing what was being said in work meetings. I got depressed about my work and personal life.
My hearing aids have kept me working in the job that I love, made it easier on friends and loved ones and had a huge impact on my level of overall satisfaction with my life.
I think that this is the best audiology business and audiologist I have ever been to of the seven audiologist places I have used in the past. The ethics, knowledge, customer service, hearing aid options and price are the best.

"My hearing aids changed my life! I am able to converse more easily, and my “musical ear” came back."
As a musician, I noticed problems hearing higher frequency notes in the harmonic progression. I had a diagnosis of Ménière’s disease many years ago but didn’t start noticing hearing loss until around 2012.
My first impressions of Berkeley Hearing Center were that the service with the audiologist was personalized and professional. My hearing aids changed my life! I am able to converse more easily, and my “musical ear” came back.
If you’re concerned about your hearing and are considering Berkeley Hearing Center, don’t wait! It can make a huge difference in the way you feel about socializing.

"When I first got a hearing aid, I was delivering a lot of live training - hearing better allowed me not to feel like I was missing questions from the class."
I first noticed a hearing challenge in my mid-20s when I started regularly using a phone headset at work. I realized I could hear much better with the earpiece on my right versus my left. I already had one hearing aid, but needed to determine whether I was ready for a second. (My husband's biggest concern was getting to have the TV back to 'normal' volume!)
My first impression of Berkeley Hearing Center was that it was very friendly and welcoming. I was really impressed at how quickly I was recognized by staff - even over the phone. They didn't make me go through all of the details of my situation each time I arrived, which isn't always typical in a patient/provider setting.
When I first got a hearing aid, I was delivering a lot of live training - hearing better allowed me not to feel like I was missing questions from the class. I was initially concerned about getting hearing aids because I felt too "young" to get them. - The reality is that there are so many types on the market that you can choose a model that works for whatever your concerns are in terms of wearing/handling/managing them.
My husband appreciates not having to have the TV at loud volume. I also appreciate the ability to turn the volume up on my hearing aids if the situation warrants. (The hidden benefit to hearing loss? I sleep through almost any noises!)
If you are concerned about your hearing and are considering Berkeley Hearing Center, go and talk to the team - there's no sales pressure. They will help you find a solution that works for you. (And they will keep working with you to make sure things are right if the initial hearing aid doesn't work or you need adjustments).
