hearing aidsHere at Hidden Hearing, we have a great range of digital hearing aids that are designed to suit all types of hearing loss. If you’re experiencing hearing loss, and you are considering or using digital hearing aids, you’ll know that they are smaller, more sensitive and more effective than ever before. They can be expensive, and people are often surprised that they have a limited lifespan of around five years.

Hearing aids, however, are no longer simply medical devices. The most advanced hearing aids are considered to be wearable technology, in line with smart watches, and many devices use more sophisticated technology than a smartphone! This means that the technology involved is being constantly updated, and therefore it is necessary to replace your device at least every five years to ensure that you are making the most of the newest technology and receiving the best hearing experience possible.

How To Care For Your Digital Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are usually worn for long hours every day, so it is understandable that they will be subjected to a great deal of wear and tear, and we recommend the following to prolong their life as much as possible:

1. Have regular checks. You will need to have regular check ups with your audiologist in order to monitor your hearing loss and ensure you are receiving the best treatment at all times, and this is also a good opportunity for your hearing aid to be professionally cleaned. A deep cleaning treatment, to thoroughly clean your hearing aid and replace any parts necessary, will be a vital part of your aftercare appointments.

2. Keep your hearing aid clean. Daily cleaning of your hearing aid will help to make sure it lasts as long as possible. You will be given instructions on how to care for your hearing aid and it is important to follow these carefully to keep it functioning well and prolong the life of your device as much as possible.

3. Store your hearing aid properly. Your hearing aids should always been kept in a cool, dry place that is safe from children and pets, and your audiologist will probably recommend a case that can protect it from the elements. You should always remove batteries when not in use, and you may find that a dehumidifier helps to keep your device dry.
