Moisture and dust can affect the sound quality of your hearing aids. To prevent a build-up of debris, it is best to clean your hearing aids daily. This can be done by using a small brush (like a child-sized toothbrush) to brush the hearing aid. If you develop excessive ear wax, see your physician or ear doctor for regular ear cleanings.
If your hearing aids are not performing properly, try one of the following troubleshooting techniques:
No sound from the hearing aid or hearing aid sounds weak
You hear feedback or whistling
For additional information, refer to your hearing aid product manual. Contact your audiologist if you are wondering which type of hearing aid you have. If you are experiencing any concerns other than those listed, or if you continue to have difficulties, please contact your audiologist.
