Your hearing aids are robust devices that help you hear again. However, they don’t do their job alone. When paired with accessories, they help you hear your best and make your hearing aids the best they can be. Here are 5 must-have hearing aid tools and accessories.
- Cleaning Kit: Keeping your hearing aids clean is the key to maintaining their longevity. We always recommend that you wipe down your hearing aids with a soft cloth every time you take them out, even if it to adjust them or change the battery and put them right back in. This will keep them clean and dry. You should also clean them at least once a day and keep your cleaning kit with you when you travel to have it handy. Here is what you should have in you hearing aid cleaning kit:
- Cleaning Brush
- Wax Pick or Wire Loop
- A case to protect your hearing aid when you aren’t wearing it.
- Tubing, Domes, and Tips: Extra replacement parts to ensure you don’t miss out on anything if a part needs replacing or fixing.
- Hearing Aid Batteries or Battery Charger: Hearing aids today either have replaceable or rechargeable batteries. You never want to miss out on hearing because of a battery issue. Therefore, you should always have extra batteries or your charger ready to recharge them.
- Wax Guards: Earwax is normal for everyone to have. In fact, it is produced to protect your ears. However, earwax isn’t always the best thing for your hearing aids. Wax guards help protect your hearing aids from everyday wax build up.
- Bluetooth Streaming Devices: Technology is such an important part of everyday life, and you don’t want to feel disconnected because you can’t hear or can’t use the same devices you did before you were affected with hearing loss. Bluetooth streaming devices allow you to stay connected to your smartphone, music listening devices, television, and more.
