Audiology and Hearing Aid Services
Manna Audiology Hearing Center makes hearing easier, so you live life fuller. Improving your hearing experience is as easy as making a call and scheduling a free hearing test.

As a full-service audiology practice, we offer a wide array of services. Don’t live with hearing loss any longer.
Earwax is completely natural, but hardened, or compacted earwax is not. Cerumen (earwax) is created within the ears and moves out, but sometimes it needs help. Manna Audiology Hearing Center safely and painlessly removes earwax, so you hear better, and your hearing aids perform better too.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
Diagnostic Audiologic Evaluations
Experience the difference our four-step process makes in accurately diagnosing hearing loss. More than just testing, we take the time to review your medical history, talk to you about your hearing concerns and physically examine your ears before we even begin the hearing tests. The hearing tests may include:
- Audiometric pure tone evaluation to measure your hearing at different frequencies.
- Speech evaluation to measure how well you hear and understand ordinary conversation at different volumes.
- Immittance middle-ear evaluation to measure how your eardrum and hearing react to varying degrees of air pressure.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
An evaluation for hearing aids looks at your hearing needs, any physical limitations you have (visual or dexterity), your cosmetic concerns and your budget. We will expertly match the results of your hearing tests with these factors to recommend the right technology for you.
Hearing Aid Dispensing and Fitting
Whether you prefer the small and discreet hearing aids or the larger and easier to handle styles, we make sure your hearing aids are programmed perfectly for you. Your customized program for wearing new hearing aids will help you to adjust gradually. This gives your brain time to adjust to the sounds you’ve been missing. When your brain has been deprived of auditory stimulation, it needs time to “learn to listen again.” Our step-by-step program will walk you through this process successfully.
Hearing Aid Repairs
At Manna Audiology Hearing Center, we can diagnose problems with all makes and models of hearing aids and even perform many repairs while you wait. If you are having trouble with your hearing aids, we’d be more than happy to help you get your devices back in working order. Even if you didn’t purchase your hearing aids from us, we can handle warranty and other repairs.
Industrial Hearing Screenings
The Charlotte area is fueled by industry. While that’s good for the economy, industrial settings require noise protection and hearing monitoring. Manna Audiology Hearing Center has developed hearing care services for industrial needs. Off-site screening is available in our office.
