Obtaining hearing aids to help with hearing impairment is often viewed as one of the best decisions anyone can take to improve their lifestyle and daily activities and interact more easily with the rest of the world. However, in order to keep a hearing aid working properly and in good condition, every wearer needs to maintain and take care of it. There are a variety of hearing aid accessories on the market to achieve quality maintenance for your hearing device and its parts. The most common hearing aid accessories are usually connected to cleaning and hygiene of the hearing aid and the ear, batteries, protective cases, dehumidifiers, spare parts, earwax removal, etc.

Protecting the hearing aid

You should make sure that you are very careful when putting on and removing your hearing aid as well as when using it in an environment that may be harmful to the device, such as while running, working out or swimming. Dropping your hearing aid may damage it so if you do not need it during a specific activity it is best to put it in a protective case or Dry Box. Perspiration is detrimental to the electronic parts so you should seek to avoid it and dry the hearing aid as soon as it comes in contact with water. There are waterproof sweatbands you can use to protect the device from moisture, condensation and dirt. However, submerging in water is not recommended unless you have water resistant hearing aids. If the hearing aid does become wet, there are different accessories to help you cope with the problem. You can absorb the moisture with soft tissues such as SmartWipe Hygienic Wipes and then put it in a dehumidifier. At hearingdirect.com you can find dehumidifiers for different hearing aid models. The most popular ones are Dry Spot, Dry & Store or Amplicom DB200 Plus Hearing Aids Dry Box.

Cleaning the hearing aid

Another important issue to consider when taking care of your hearing device is its cleaning. Debris, earwax and dirt will diminish the performance of the hearing aid, clog it and cause damage not only to the tubing and domes but also to the electronic parts. That is why it is very important to clean the hearing aid and its parts regularly. Products that you can use are wipes, cleaning pens, brushes, air puffers or cleaning wires. Have a look at our full range of Cleaning and Hygiene Products.

Batteries

Batteries are essential for the functioning of hearing aids. Depending on the daily use and the size of the battery, they last from a few days to a few weeks. Some hearing aids indicate when their batteries are expiring and need replacement. It is a good idea always to have a packet of spare batteries in case they expire unexpectedly.

Tubing and domes

If you wear a behind the ear hearing aid, the tubing and domes should also be cleaned after separation from the hearing aid and have to be replaced every few months as they wear or become damaged. They can be purchased in packs depending on the hearing aid model or in accessory kits that also include batteries and a digital key ring battery tester.
