About Us

We have been serving the Des Moines community since 2015.

Hometown Hearing: Our Story

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.

Jacob Levsen, HIS

Jacob is a Board-Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist and the Owner of Hometown Hearing. In 2005, Jacob began his career in hearing care by working for some of the largest hearing aid brands including Miracle Ear and Beltone. Working with these companies, Jacob learned about the hearing aid industry and became fascinated with hearing aid technology.

After speaking with a friend who was a hearing specialist, Jacob discovered that he enjoyed the type of work being a hearing instrument specialist offered. Now he is passionate about helping people experience better hearing through hearing aids. He keeps up to date with the latest hearing aid technology and is excited to constantly see the new technology released and how it can help his patients reconnect with their life. From helping patients manage their hearing loss to discovering the latest advancements in hearing aid technology, Jacob loves the versatility of being a hearing specialist.
