Hearing Care Services
Longmont Hearing & Tinnitus Center is a full-service audiology practice and Longmont’s best option for new hearing aids and better hearing, serving the Longmont, Lyons, Niwot, Berthoud, Boulder, Firestone, Frederick, and Dacono communities since 1992. We are dedicated to improving patients’ lives by handling all of your auditory needs with compassionate, reliable care. Whether you are experiencing hearing loss, believe you have tinnitus, or have questions about your hearing health, we’re here to help.
Diagnostic Hearing Tests
We provide diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of hearing disorders for adults and children. We will determine whether there is hearing loss, the cause of hearing loss (to the extent possible), the degree and configuration (one or both ears) of hearing loss, and the best treatment options available. In addition to a visual inspection and sound booth test, we also utilize Thrive to provide insight into what is happening beyond the ear and beyond the auditory system. Learn more →
Tinnitus Evaluation and Treatment
Dr. Rudden is the only tinnitus specialist in Longmont, and one of the few currently practicing in Colorado. Tinnitus (the perception of a sound that has no external source) doesn’t just impact hearing—it can cause a cascade of negative mental, cognitive, and physical consequences. First we aim to determine the cause, look for sensorineural hearing loss, and distinguish it from hyperacusis. Then we can help prevent and minimize tinnitus, and if desired, provide aural rehabilitation and counseling. Learn more →
We offer advanced digital hearing aid technology prescribed for specific hearing loss, lifestyle, and budget, including daily wear and extended wear solutions. As a fully independent audiology practice dedicated to fitting you with the right technology for your needs, we are NOT owned or beholden to any hearing aid manufacturer, so we offer most brands and types of devices, including Behind-The-Ear (BTE), Completely-In-Canal (CIC), Invisible-In-The-Canal (IIC), In-The-Canal (ITC), In-The-Ear (ITE), Receiver-In-Canal (RIC), and Mini RIC hearing aids.

Hearing Aid Repair
If you have a problem with your hearing aids, you can depend on our professionals for expert cleaning and repair. Most repairs can be performed in-house while you wait. If for any reason your hearing aids must be returned to the manufacturer for warranty repair, we will take care of that for you. If your hearing aids are not under warranty, we will give you an estimate of the repair cost before any work is done. Brands we work with include Starkey, Oticon, Phonak, Widex, Signia/Siemens, ReSound, Unitron, and Westone. Contact us today →

Ear Wax Removal
Most people don’t ever need to clean their ears, but sometimes wax can build up and affect your hearing—and that’s called impaction. If you are experiencing difficulty hearing, or your hearing aid performance is muffled, there’s a good chance that excess ear wax is at fault. Ear candling is pointless and dangerous, and cleaning with a cotton swab can push the wax further into the ear canal. As part of our hearing care services, we offer several safe and effective options for ear wax removal treatments. Learn more →
Custom Hearing Protection
Recreational exposure to excessive noise is one the most common causes of hearing loss. A single shot from a shotgun, experienced at close range, may permanently damage your hearing in an instant, and the effects of noise on hearing are often underestimated because the damage takes place so gradually. We want you to hear for life, so we offer hearing protection for concerts, sports, musicians, industrial workers, and shooters, as well as custom earplugs for swimmers, in a wide variety of ear molds.

Meet Dr. Rudden
When I think about all the things I have seen and experienced over the years, I have been truly blessed to call my “life’s work” serving people with hearing loss and reconnecting to the sounds that mean the most to them. I have also had the opportunity to serve other communities in underserved countries such as India, Guyana, Costa Rica, Peru, and St. Lucia. These mission experiences of service have granted me the opportunity to change lives by giving the gift of hearing. It is as simple as that.
I have witnessed this magic with people of all ages: babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time, grandparents hearing their grandchildren, children hearing their own voices and realizing they can make sounds – it’s incredible to witness, and I’ve been blessed to share these moments.
I look forward to helping you reconnect to the sounds that are critical, vital and memorable to you!
