The modern hearing aid is one of the most important pieces of technology in our world today. It allows millions of people who would otherwise be severely limited by hearing loss to have productive and enjoyable lives . But these devices are not a flawless technology. There are some problems associated with their use. Some of the most common problems include:

Slide3:

1. No Sound At All This problem could be the result of several issues. One, the battery may be worn out. If this is the case, it is time for a battery replacement. Two, the sound outlet may be clogged. To fix this problem, clean the sound outlet or change the wax filter . Finally , the microphone opening may also be clogged. If this is the cause of the problem, clean the microphone opening with a toothbrush.

2. Distorted Sound Distorted sound is usually a sign that your hearing aid’s battery needs cleaning. Specifically, check that the battery is not dirty or corroded. If it is corroded, simply replace the battery. If the problem persists, see your hearing care professional.

Slide5:

3. Whistling Sound When Inserted This usually means that your device has not been correctly inserted. To remedy, simply remove and reinsert the hearing aid . Another common cause of this problem is that your volume may be set too high. Try turning down the volume until the whistling sound is no longer present . Hearing loss shouldn’t be a reality in today’s world, even temporarily. If problems persist, contact your devices manufacturer or call your audiologist to make an appointment .
