Maintaining Your Hearing Health
1. We recommend you have an audiogram every two years to determine if your hearing devices should be reprogrammed to compensate for any additional loss.
2. Wear your hearing devices daily to allow your brain time to relearn sounds.
3. Do not miss a regularly scheduled checkup.
4. Do not wear someone else’s hearing devices.
Taking Care of Your Hearing Devices
1. Clean your earmolds daily to remove any buildup.
2. Remove your hearing devices before taking a shower or going swimming.
3. Do not expose your hearing devices to hair spray.
4. Do not expose your hearing devices to radiation from X-rays.
5. Do not try to repair your own hearing device.
6. Do not use alcohol or cleaning fluid on any parts.
7. Regularly check the plastic tubing on your hearing device for debris.
1. Replace batteries routinely; the average battery life is seven to 10 days.
2. Memorize the battery size your hearing device requires.
3. Turn off your hearing devices at bedtime, and keep the battery compartment open to allow any moisture to evaporate.
4. Store batteries at room temperature.
5. Do not carry loose batteries in your pocket or purse.
6. When newly purchased, hearing device batteries are sealed with a tab to ensure freshness. Do not remove this tab until you are ready to use the battery. Once you remove the tab, allow the battery to charge for 30-60 seconds before placing it into the hearing device.
