General Care Of Your Hearing Aide(s)

Hearing aides are quite expensive. Taking care of them is a wise decision. If you do not keep them clean you will lose the quality of hearing you were used to when you got them. Taking a few minutes once or twice a month to sit down and clean them will keep them in good shape and your hearing ability top notch. Most hearing aides come with a small brush and usually a small wire instrument. First of all open your battery compartment and remove battery so it isn't squealing at you while you are cleaning. Take the small wire instrument and reach in a far as you can without damaging the tubes in your hearing aide, and scoop out any and all wax that you can. Take the brush and brush out the wax on the wire instrument. Continue scooping the wax ot of all the tubes until you are finished. If there is a lot of wax remaining that you could not reach, you must take them back to where you purchased them so they can finish cleaning them for you and perhaps show you a trick or two in the care of them. Many places will also remove the wax build-up in your ears for you at no charge. With just a few minutes of your time each month to keep them clean they will give you good service for years to come.

how to clean the domes on hearing aids

Take the domes off, wash them out or use a pipe cleaner to poke out the wax. If you have washed them, make sure they are thoroughly dry before you put them back on. When you put them back on make sure they are firmly on the receiver tip or you will be taking a trip to A&E to get it removed from your ear canal.

hearing aids keep shutting down. Batteries get wet.

First you should probably keep your hearing aid and battery away from water.I suggest taking it out while in the shower/bath and cover your head with a hood or umbrella while out on a rainy day.If battery keeps shutting down then replace the old battery with a new one.If problem keeps accorring then maybe its time to take your hearing aid into your local hearing aid repair and let them solve the whole issue with why it keeps shutting down

Hearing Aid Support

Because every person has a different extent of hearing loss with a different type, this is difficult to answer. Some believe that there are benefits to wearing two aids. Obviously they provide for a more balanced hearing by better directing sound from different areas. Some believe that two aids provide more clarity and allow the user to hear better in noisy locations. A licensed professional or audiologist will best be able to recommend whether one or two aids will work best for you.
