Wax build-up is one of the main reasons why hearing aids need repairing. Clean your hearing aids to ensure that they keep doing their job.
Your ear canal produces earwax, which serves the great purpose of protecting and lubricating your ear. But wax build-up is one of the main reasons why hearing aids need repairing, because wax clogs up the sound outlet and/or the ventilation opening, resulting in weak, distorted sound or absence of sound.
Learn how to replace the wax filter.
Your hearing aids are an important investment, and they have been designed to be both reliable and durable. Take a few minutes each day to clean them. Most hearing aids come with a wax filter to stop wax getting into the hearing aid. Check the wax filter and replace it if necessary.
Always use the same type of wax filter as was originally supplied with the hearing aid. If you are in any doubt about the use or replacement of wax filters, contact your hearing care professional.
