How We Can Help
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 Prescription 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 prescription 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.
– Larry R.
"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.
– Fran B.
"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!)
– Ryann C.
"Achieving better hearing has taken the strain away and I am thankful to Berkeley Hearing Center"
It all started when I I was finding it difficult to hear students, especially women students, around a seminar table. Hearing became such a strain that it came to interfere with listening attentively. I became a customer when Berkeley Hearing Center was in cramped space on a crowded street.
– Thomas W. Laqueur
"By working with Berkeley, I can now clearly hear conversations and it has improved my hearing more than I ever thought it could."
I first realized that I had a hearing challenge at the Thanksgiving table when someone spoke to me, I said huh…my sister said, “huh huh enough with the huh…go get hearing aids.” My first impression of Berkeley Hearing Center was positive, I liked my first experience and it has only got better. By working with Berkeley, I can now clearly hear conversations and it has improved my hearing more than I ever thought it could. If you are considering visiting Berkeley Hearing Center, my advice to you is they the very very best. Jonathan, the audiologist and John the office manager are a great team.
