Professional hearing care for the people of Des Moines

Hometown Hearing is a privately owned and operated hearing practice. Jacob Levsen opened Hometown Hearing in 2015 after working in the hearing aid field for 10 years. Jacob wanted to be able to help the people of Des Moines experience better hearing. Jacob enjoys seeing the faces of his patients light up when they first hear the sound of their loved one’s voices when they are fit for hearing aids in the office.

Our goal at Hometown Hearing is to provide all of our patients with exceptional hearing care, so they can hear – and feel – their best again. Everyone deserves to be able to hear the voices of their children, the laughter of their grandchildren, and the sound of the conversation with friends. We carry the latest hearing aid technology to help you hear all that matters to you. Call us today to schedule your appointment and experience better hearing for yourself.


Hearing care services

Hearing Test: We offer comprehensive hearing tests for adults. We should all have regular hearing tests throughout our lives, just like we need to be screened for other types of possible health problems. Hearing loss, like many other types of health issues, is easier to help the earlier it is diagnosed. We can effectively test your hearing and discover your degree of hearing loss.

Sound Field Testing: As part of your hearing test, we will also perform a sound field test. We will have you step into our sound-isolated room and via speakers we will test the sensitivity of your hearing. Sound field testing helps us develop a thorough understanding of your hearing ability.

Hearing Aid Consultation: During your first appointment we will test your hearing and perform a hearing aid consultation. During the hearing aid consultation, we will discuss hearing aid options that we believe will best help you. Our board-certified hearing instrument specialist is knowledgeable about all of the major brands of hearing aids and understands the technology inside of them. When going over your options for hearing aids, we will consider your hearing needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Hearing Aid Programming and Fitting: Once you have decided to move forward with the hearing aid process, we will expertly program and fit your new hearing aids to your unique ear shape and hearing needs. Every person’s hearing needs are different, just like the shape of your ear is unique to you.

Hearing Aid Repairs: Not everyone needs new hearing aids. We can repair and service all brands and models of hearing aids. We have a full service-center in our Newton office so we can easily make repairs on your hearing aids without having to send them to the manufacturer.

Earmolds: We have all types of custom ear molds available for any type of situation, from simple swim plugs or noise reduction to high quality ear monitors for musicians, and everything in between. Custom ear molds are the best way to keep your ears safe and to be proactive about your hearing health.
