in-the-ear hearing aids

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.

Cleaning in-the-ear (ITE) Hearing Aids with a cloth

Clean your Hearing Aids Daily

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.

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 filter or other device to stop wax getting into the hearing aid.

Check the wax filter and replace it if necessary.

Use the brush to clean away any traces of wax from around the sound outlet.

If microphone openings are clogged by dust or dirt, this will affect the performance of the instrument. Carefully brush away visible signs of debris from the openings while twisting the brush.
