When you are first fitted with a hearing aid, you might hear a little too much. This is because you have adjusted over time to having reduced hearing capabilities. Now that your ability to hear has been enhanced, your brain needs to re-learn sounds. What you have come to know as ‘normal’ will suddenly and dramatically change for the better. It can take some getting used to, so stick at it, and enjoy the benefits of living with hearing aids.
Maintenance and care of your hearing aid
You will need to ensure your hearing aids are clean and free of ear wax at all times. If you are cleaning your hearing aids, use a dry, soft cloth.
Hearing aid care products are available with your Audiologist/Hearing care professional at your nearest Amplifon center. They will also check for ear wax build up and the general working order of your hearing aid during routine checkups.
It’s important to take care of your hearing aids not only to maintain high performance levels, but it will help minimise any potential problems you may experience with everyday use.
