Are you curious about the possibility of sleeping while wearing hearing aids? While it is technically feasible, it is not recommended. To learn more, please refer to our article.
The answer is no! It is best to remove your hearing aids during the night, as it is important to let your ears rest and let the hearing aids recharge. It is therefore ideal to remove the hearing aids, open the battery doors and store them in their designated case on your bedside table. This practice will help prolong the battery life of your device.
Learn about some of the reasons why wearing hearing aids at night should be avoided:
It is possible to accidentally fall asleep one day with your hearing aids in your ears. In this case, there is no risk of malfunction. The real danger is the discomfort of wearing the hearing aids or losing them during the night. Try to get into the habit of storing your hearing aids in a safe place so that you do not lose them.
Some hearing care professionals claim that hearing aids can improve sleep, but there are many caveats to consider (as illustrated above). It is important, not only for your hearing health but also for the effectiveness of hearing aids, to remove them whenever possible, e.g. before sleeping or taking a shower. By performing regular maintenance and cleaning, hearing aids can function properly for several years.
