Hearing Aid Adjustments & Tuning
Hearing aids may need adjustments or extra tuning done when you start to wear the new hearing aids. It is good to remain patient, as it can take time to adapt to wearing hearing aids.
You may also find that your hearing changes over time and this can lead to your hearing aids not helping as much as they once did. If you notice these changes in your hearing you can schedule a hearing test and we also recommend that you get your hearing checked annually.
Hearing Aid Maintenance
You can help prevent the repairs needing to be done to your hearing aids by regularly maintaining the hearing aids at home. Here are some of our tips for maintaining your hearing aids:
- Keep Them Dry: Placing hearing aids in a dehumidifier or UV-light when not in use can help keep them dry.
- Use A Hearing Aid Wax System: The wax system acts as a filter to block out ear wax from accumulating in your device.
- Clean The Hearing Aid Regularly: Wipe down the surface of the hearing aid with a soft cloth regularly. Use a brush and a wax loop to gently brush away any debris from the ports and vents.
- Check The Battery: Make sure the battery is working first and foremost. You can also check if it was placed in the hearing aid properly and that it was fully inserted into the device.
