Why do I need to clean the hearing aid?
Your hearing aids are exposed to earwax, skin oils, sweat, and other debris every day, which can decrease the hearing aid performance, specifically poor sound quality and volume, or block the sound entirely.
Cleaning your hearing aids and replacing your domes and wax guards routinely will help keep your in-the-ear hearing aids working as they should.
The hearing aid body can be wiped with a dry tissue or microfiber cloth. Do not use water, alcohol, or other liquid agent to clean the hearing aid.
Use the cleaning tool brush to remove dust, earwax, or other debris from the dome, wax guards, buttons, and microphone.
