Hearing Aid Accessories
Hearing aid accessories are made by the same manufacturers to improve your experience with your hearing aids. Here is a list of some accessories you might be interested in:
Hearing Aid Case
Hearing aid cases are made to keep your hearing aids safe and clean, so they do not accumulate dust or debris by sitting out in the open or accidentally fall off the counter.
Hearing Aid Clips
Hearing aid clips are a great way to help prevent them from falling off while you are wearing them. The clips work by attaching a string to the hearing aids then clipping the string to your shirt. They are most suitable for children and adults that live an active lifestyle.

A hearing aid remote control lets you make adjustments to the volume or settings on your hearing aids without having to even touch your hearing aids.

It’s always a good idea to regularly clean and maintain your hearing aids and we offer cleaning kits to help you maintain your hearing aids without purchasing all of the tools individually. They typically include things like special brushes, threads for cleaning tubes, wipes, and more.
Assistive Listening Devices
Assistive Listening Devices are a hearing accessory meant to enhance your hearing in specific situations. Here are some of the more popular examples that we get asked about:
Hearing Amplification Devices
Hearing amplification devices are similar to hearing aids in the way that they help amplify sound and can be used for people who either don’t want hearing aids yet, or can be used with hearing aids. These devices are great for conversations in quiet environments where you don’t have to worry about background noises.
FM Hearing System
FM hearing systems are similar to hearing amplification devices, but are suited for louder environments like churches or schools when you are further away from the speaker.
Bluetooth Hearing Aid Streamers
Bluetooth assistive listening devices can stream sound directly to your hearing aids from your phone, music you are listening to, or videos you are watching. There are more and more devices that allow Bluetooth connections, such as televisions with a hearing aid Bluetooth TV adapter.
TV Hearing Aid Devices
The latest and most advanced hearing aids may have a direct Bluetooth connection to smart TVs so you can stream the sound to your hearing aid. Alternatively, you can get a device that connects to a TV and then streams the sound to your ears.
