You might put a little something slippery on the wire the tube goes on. Try vaseline, hand lotion, cooking oil, anything slick or oily should work. Use a q-tip so you don't make your fingers slippery, just a dab.

My right hearing aid is 4 momths old and it stopped working


The Bolero model requires clear passage of sound through the tube that connects it to the dome/tip that fits into your ear. To determine if the tube is blocked, with a good battery inserted and the battery door closed, unscrew the top of the tube where it connects to the hearing aid. If you cup the hearing aid in your hand, it should whistle/feedback. If not, there is something wrong with the hearing aid. If it does whistle, your audiologist should have provided you with a thin, flexible plastic piece (often green) and instructed you how to unscrew the tube at the top of the hearing aid to run the plastic piece through the tube, all the way out the other end of the dome/tip. If that piece can travel the entire tube easily, then sound should be able to. In any case, a Phonak hearing aid has at least a one year manufacturer warranty (a Q90 likely has a three year) and they will pay for shipping both ways to fix it. You need to send it via an audiologist, though.

Siemens lotus hearing aid emits constant tone


Is the (acoustic) tube obstructed or partially blocked ? If the problem is inside the hard plastic flesh-coloured opaque part, you will need to take it a technician, return it to the manufacturer, or replace it. There are no user-serviceable parts inside.

I find that my BTE open fit hearing aid solves a lot of problems but the fitting seems to creep away from the ear drum making it difficult to hear. I find I am continually pusshing the tube back to where...


There are a couple of solutions that you can try, ask your audi to fit a sport lock or change the tip he is using. If that does not work, think about investing in a set of custom made tips. A sport lock is a piece of plastic that attaches to the tubing, when you place the tip in your ear this piece of plastic is folded around the inside of your outer ear along the bowl.It aids retention of the tip.

DEAD


Cbolis,

If your hearing aid is dead and you have replaced the battery, and checked the sound tube or ear mold sound tube for ear wax, then you must tell me more about the problem.

For instance; are you an experienced HA user or not? Have you had the problem before? When did it go "Dead"? How often has this event occurred. Have you had the instrument long? How old is it? In the ear or behind the ear model? Or Other? If any of my comments have solved your problem please let me know.

In my opinion the problem is either acoustic or electronic. It can also be an acoustic problem in relation to your hearing loss and the condition of your ear.

We can continue do do this to solve your problem if you wish. We can continue with Q&A to solve. Or if you would like a local referral for service please give me a zip code. Thanks for asking FixYa Expertise.

Can come out when i remove glsses or take off jumper or hat


Hi Jan3630,

The instruments you show in the picture appear to be ear inserts rather than custom ear mold. Customs can also be small.

You may consider having a local Hearing Health Care Professional advise you as to the feasibility of replacing your sound tubes and inserts with Custom ear-molds.

These will have a better chance of staying in the ear when you are doing the activities you described. Please advise if you find info helpful. Thanks for contacting FixYa.com

The pipe in my mould is too thick, would that cause slightly muffled hearing?


Only the recommended OEM parts are always the best. but if this is happening in an emergency or you are far from base, then try it. If there's no change in sound, then no cause for worry.

I have an older triple head Tycos Stethoscope that has a metal spring-like bridge at the bas of the ear tubes, and which holds the ear tubes separate. This broke near the connection with one of the ear...


If it's less than ten years old, it may be under warrantee. When mine broke, 15 years ago, I had to replace the whole Binaural/Spring Assembly piece- the metal ear tubes and the spring are all one piece.
Major med equip suppliers- Schein, Darby, etc., stock the parts. WA has them, probably for sl more-plus $10 extra charge for orders under $100.

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.

Hearing Aid Question


Behind-the-Ear (BTE) - Sits behind your ear and is connected to an ear mold placed inside your ear via tubing. BTE devices are fastened on the ear with an ear hook and the ear molds are custom made to fit the user's ear. In the Ear (ITE) - These are placed in the ear of the wearer. In the Canal (ITC) and Completely in the Canal (CIC) - With ITCs and CICs, the whole hearing aid is placed inside the canal. ITCs are often larger than CIC devices. CICs are extremely tiny in size and are almost invisible. Body-worn hearing aids - These aids use an external box worn by the user. The user wears an ear piece which is attached to the box by a wire. There are also disposable hearing aids available which have a built-in battery and, after the allotted hour or time usage, the user simply replaces the entire aid.
