Local Hearing Aid Specialists in Emporia, KS
Jesse Hidalgo | BC-HIS
Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist
I have been in the hearing aid industry since 1998, actively practicing in the Central Kansas and Oklahoma areas. I am licensed to fit and dispense hearing aids in three states; Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. I continued to pursue a higher level of certification by taking the National Competency Exam and received my Board Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences. I am also a qualified member of the International Hearing Society.
After 15+ years of helping to build a very successful string of practices, I decided to extend my expertise into my own practices. I do this with a passion to offer patients the best hearing aid fitting practices that I have learned over all the years. My goal at Hearing Group is to educate patients about hearing loss and hearing aids; taking time to explain every step of the way. Our patients love that they come first in our practice!
When you are ready to hear your favorite sounds clearly, give us a call to set up your free hearing test! We can get you on the road to a better quality of life!

The Importance of a Hearing Test
Have you ever asked yourself, “Do I need a hearing test?” We go to the dentist regularly and get annual check-ups at the doctor’s office — hearing tests shouldn’t be any different! Unfortunately, hearing loss does worsen over time, so it can change from year to year. Other factors that can worsen your hearing loss are frequent exposure to loud noises, illness, injury, or medications. That’s why it’s so important to test it annually.
If you already wear hearing aids, it’s especially important to come to see us regularly. Your hearing may have changed since we last tested it. It’s also possible that your hearing aids might not be working as well for you as they were. Just like you would get a new prescription for your glasses every year, we need to program any new hearing loss into your hearing aids every year.
When you come into our office, we do a comprehensive hearing test, which includes: air conduction, bone conduction, speech reception thresholds, word recognition, MCL, UCL, and speech-in-noise testing. Before all of that, we’ll look in your ears with our video otoscope to check for wax and any visible abnormalities.
All of these terms may be unfamiliar to you right now, but when you come in to have your hearing tested at Hearing Group, we will thoroughly explain the testing process, test results, and give you our recommendation based on those results.
Find Hearing Aids for You
Everyone’s hearing loss is different, and that’s why we offer a variety of solutions tailored to each individual. Some people might only need one aid, while others need two. Some people may need to be set up with a BiCROS or CROS configuration to hear their best.
The best solution for one person isn’t the same as the best solution for the next person. That can be because of budget differences, more or less hearing loss, different kinds of hearing loss, style preferences, or many other things. Whatever your hearing needs, Justine at Hearing Group in Emporia, KS, is well-equipped to find the best hearing aid solution for you.
