Care and Maintenance

Take care of your hearing aid

It's important to take care of your hearing aids, not only to maintain high performance levels, but to help minimise any potential problems you may experience with everyday use. Regular cleaning and maintenance can extend the life of your hearing aids, ensuring you are capturing all the sounds of life every single day. 

Tips to improve your hearing aid's life

  • Clean your hearing aids regularly using your hearing aid cleaning kit. Use a soft, dry cloth and avoid household cleaners or solvents. For more information see our cleaning guide.
  • Make sure your hands are clean and dry before handling your hearing aids.
  • Take off your hearing aids before showering, bathing or swimming.
  • Levels of condensation in bathrooms or changing rooms can cause damage so find a dry, secure storage location.
  • Remove your hearing aids before applying perfume of hair spray.
  • Store your hearing aids in their case or drying cup when not in use. If you wont be using your hearing aids for an extended period remove the batteries and store them separately.
  • Choose a dry storage location away from heat sources and out of direct sunlight. Make sure your location is out of reach of children and pets.
    Prevent excessive ear wax build up by cleaning your ears periodically with an at-home irrigation kit.
  • Use an expert if you need repairs. DIY repairs can cause damage to the tiny electrical systems inside your hearing aids which can be costly to fix or cause permanently damage.
