Audicus Care & Protect: Reprogramming, Warranty and Repairs
Hearing Aid Reprogramming
If you are not fully satisfied with the sound quality or amplification settings on the hearing aid, your device might require a reprogramming adjustment. We offer adjustments free for the life of the hearing aid and would simply ask you to fill out the following audiologist-designed survey to let us know what issues you are experiencing.
We will contact you with details on how to send back your hearing aids for the necessary adjustments. Devices will be shipped back with standard ground shipping; if you wish to expedite shipping you can purchase UPS Express Shipping.
The primary reason hearing aids are sent back is lack of care and maintenance. We offer the Audicus Care subscription – an unlimited care package delivered automatically so you always have everything you need to keep them in tip-top condition. Audicus Care is billed and shipped every 3 months, but you can request additional shipments whenever you need them.
For worry-free care, we offer the Audicus Protect subscription, our hearing aid protection program that covers your investment against damage and loss, with unlimited checkups and cleanings and a 1-time replacement. Audicus Protect gives you total peace of mind that your hearing aids are always protected no matter what.
Audicus Protect must be purchased within 60 days of your hearing aid purchase, and is billed monthly with a 2-year minimum commitment.
If you choose to you can gift your hearing aids to a friend or family member. Maybe because you’re upgrading to a new model and no longer need your current hearing aids. If this happens, all you need to do is pay a small, one-time, change fee to transfer the device(s) under their name. From then on, they’ll enjoy all the benefits of being an Audicus customer, including unlimited free reprogrammings.
